Tdap Vaccine Safety for Plasma Donors

2019-11-03 15:11:00 | BioPortfolio


This is a prospective, open label, single-arm, multi-center, Phase 1 study measuring the safety and tetanus antibody responses to Tdap vaccine administered to plasma donors every 3 months ±1 week for 12 months (5 vaccinations) with a 6 month follow-up after the last vaccination. After obtaining informed consent and screening for eligibility including plasmapheresis donor eligibility, subjects will have other baseline assessments performed and if eligible, will receive the scheduled vaccinations, will be assessed for adverse events (AEs) and have plasma samples collected for antibody titers each month thereafter for 11 months, and then at 1 and 6 months after the last vaccination. As these subjects are participating in a standard donor plasmapheresis donor program, assessments for donor eligibility and routine plasmapheresis will be performed; however, only the data specifically required to meet the objectives of this study will be collected.

Functional outcome and muscle wasting in adults with tetanus.

In many countries, in-hospital survival from tetanus is increasing, but long-term outcome is unknown. In high-income settings, critical illness is associated with muscle wasting and poor functional ou...

A case report of generalized tetanus in a 42-year-old man with dental infection.

Background In the post-vaccination era, as it is today, generalized tetanus is a rare diagnosis, although mortality and morbidity continue to increase significantly throughout the world. Infection occ...

Use of the tetanus quick stick (TQS) test in the emergency services.

Standard procedure when treating tetanigenic risk wounds in an emergency room setting, usually includes administering a dose of gamma-globulin or/and a tetanus vaccine. The rapid detection test (Tetan...

Immunogenicity and Safety of a Quadrivalent Meningococcal ACWY-tetanus Toxoid Conjugate Vaccine 6 Years After MenC Priming as Toddlers.

We assessed immunogenicity, antibody persistence and safety of the meningococcal serogroups A, C, W and Y-tetanus toxoid (TT) conjugate vaccine (MenACWY-TT) in children primed as toddlers with MenC va...

The role of the single interchains disulfide bond in Tetanus and Botulinum Neurotoxins and the development of anti-tetanus and anti-botulism drugs.

A large number of bacterial toxins consist of active and cell binding protomers linked by an inter-chain disulfide bridge. The largest family of such disulfide bridged exotoxins is that of the Clostri...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disease caused by tetanospasmin, a powerful protein toxin produced by CLOSTRIDIUM TETANI. Tetanus usually occurs after an acute injury, such as a puncture wound or laceration. Generalized tetanus, the most common form, is characterized by tetanic muscular contractions and hyperreflexia. Localized tetanus presents itself as a mild condition with manifestations restricted to muscles near the wound. It may progress to the generalized form.

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 vaccine consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and whole-cell PERTUSSIS VACCINE. The vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough.

An antitoxin used for the treatment of TETANUS.

The formaldehyde-inactivated toxin of Corynebacterium diphtheriae. It is generally used in mixtures with TETANUS TOXOID and PERTUSSIS VACCINE; (DTP); or with tetanus toxoid alone (DT for pediatric use and Td, which contains 5- to 10-fold less diphtheria toxoid, for other use). Diphtheria toxoid is used for the prevention of diphtheria; DIPHTHERIA ANTITOXIN is for treatment.
