Participants will receive vaccination for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) and tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, and inactivated polio (Tdap-IPV). The study schedule design is to simulate a vaccine efficacy trial to see if single women can participate in studies that mimic actual HIV vaccine studies.
This study will evaluate if women at high risk for HIV infection residing in Lusaka, Zambia and Ndola, Zambia are willing to participate and can be retained in future HIV vaccine trials. 150 women will be enrolled that are either sex workers or single women that were identified at infant vaccination clinics (at risk due to a recent pregnancy indicating unprotected sexual contact outside of marriage or cohabitation). Two licensed vaccines will be administered as proxies for HIV vaccine administration. The clinic and laboratory procedures will simulate HIV vaccine trial procedures and will therefore inform recruitment and retention strategies and HIV incidence among high risk women in future HIV vaccine trials.

This study will evaluate the safety and immune response to GlaxoSmithKline Tdap vaccine compared to licensed Td vaccine when used as a booster in healthy adolescents (10-18 years of age).
This study has three purposes: To investigate whether the immune response to pertussis is increased when TDaP-IPV is given together with BCG vaccine, compared to when it is given alone. ...
This study evaluates the seroprevalence of Bordetella pertussis antibodies and anti-pertussis antibodies response after its single dose of reduced-antigen, combined diphtheria, tetanus, an...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of the concomitant administration of Menactra® vaccine and Tdap vaccine in adolescents aged 11 to 17 years. Primar...
Immunogenicity and Safety of the Concomitant Administration of a Tdap Vaccine and Meningococcal ACWY Conjugate Vaccine in Healthy Subjects Aged 11-25 Years
New Zealand has funded the administration of tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine during pregnancy to prevent infant pertussis since 2013. The aim of this study was to assess the...
Tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertusiss (Tdap) vaccine is recommended during each pregnancy, regardless of prior receipt. Data on reactogenicity and immunogenicity, particul...
Towards the development of vaccines against urinary tract infections (UTI), we determined the ability of intramuscular (i.m.) immunization to result in antigen-specific antibodies in urine. As a model...
Vaccinating pregnant women with influenza and tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccines can reduce the risk for influenza and pertussis for themselves and thei...
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends routine vaccination of persons aged 11-12 years with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine...
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.
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.
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 measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one ...

Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
