Meningococcal B Vaccination in University Students

2014-07-23 21:30:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is the third in a series using the MenB vaccine from the National Institute of Public Health in Norway (NIPH). The vaccine was first made in response to a high incidence of disease using the 44/76 strain which was resopnsible for most of the disease there. The VEC did the first study, MNB1, using this vaccine. Since then the NIPH has formed a commercial partnership with Chiron Vaccines and has reformulated the vaccine using the NZ98/254 MenB strain for use in New Zealand.

The vaccine was first produced at NIPH facilties and it was this vaccine that was used in our second study, MNB2. The current study, MNB3, will use the NZ98/254 MenB vaccine but from Chiron facilities where production has been scaled up in order to provide enough doses for the national immunisation campaign that is ongoing in New Zealand.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of Neisseria meningitidis responsible for most outbreaks of meningococcal disease in Western Europe and the United States in the first half of the 20th century. They continue to be a major cause of disease in Asia and Africa, and especially localized epidemics in Sub-Sahara Africa.

Strains of Neisseria meningitidis which are the most common ones causing infections or disease in infants. Serogroup B strains are isolated most frequently in sporadic cases, and are less common in outbreaks and epidemics.

Strains of Neisseria meningitidis which, in the United States, causes disease in mostly adults and the elderly. Serogroup Y strains are associated with PNEUMONIA.

Strains of Neisseria meningitidis found mostly in Africa.

Strains of Neisseria meningitidis responsible for most sporadic cases in teenagers and almost all outbreaks of disease in this age group. These strains are less common in infants.
