Pathogen transmission from vaccinated hosts can cause dose-dependent reduction in virulence.

Many livestock and human vaccines are leaky because they block symptoms but do not prevent infection or onward transmission. This leakiness is concerning because it increases vaccination coverage requ...

Effect of Glycosaminoglycans on Pathogenic Properties Far-Eastern Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus.

We studied the effect of sulfated glycosaminoglycan on the infection properties of high-virulence Dal'negorsk strain and low-virulence Primorye-437 of tick-borne encephalitis virus. Differences in rep...

Phenotypic diversity in an emerging mycoplasmal disease.

The avian pathogen Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) is a known pathogen of poultry, and newly emerged pathogen of house finches wherein it is associated with lethal conjunctivitis. Factors present in MG ...

Construction and evaluation of Vibrio alginolyticus ΔclpP mutant, as a safe live attenuated vibriosis vaccine.

Vibrio alginolyticus is a common and serious pathogen threatening the progress of coastal aquaculture. ClpP protease has been proved to be closely associated with biofilm formation, stress tolerance, ...

A Bacterial Pathogen Senses Host Mannose to Coordinate Virulence.

Bacterial pathogens are thought to activate expression of virulence genes upon detection of host-associated cues, but identification of the nature of such signals has proved difficult. We generated a ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.

A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A bacterial vaccine for the prevention of brucellosis in man and animal. Brucella abortus vaccine is used for the immunization of cattle, sheep, and goats.

The prevention of infection or disease following exposure to a pathogen. This is most frequently addressed by administering a vaccine or anti-viral medication following exposure to a virus.

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had mumps or been immunized with live mumps vaccine. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine.
