Zambia SiVET MMR Tdap-IPV

2015-10-28 14:38:23 | BioPortfolio


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.

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.

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)
