The World Health Organization has recommended that developing countries should incorporate pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) into their routine immunization schedules. The Kenya Ministry of Health anticipates introducing a new formulation of PCV, PCV10, into the routine childhood immunization schedule in 2010. In the areas of Kenya that have been designated to monitor the impact of vaccine, a catch-up campaign will be implemented to vaccinate children aged 12-59 months. PCV10 has been found to be safe and effective in infants. It is licensed for use in children up to 2 years of age, but its use as a primary series in children over age 12 months has not been evaluated. This study will assess the immunogenicity and reactogenicity of PCV10 first administered at an age of 12-59 months.

This study will evaluate the immunogenicity of a reduced dosing schedule of Pneumococcal Conjugate vaccine (PCV) PCV10 and PCV13, in which children will receive a primary dose at either 6 ...
"The aims of this trial are to demonstrate the consistency of three manufacturing lots of GSK Biologicals' DTaP-IPV candidate vaccine in terms of immunogenicity and to evaluate non-inferio...
Invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis is a life-threatening disease. Several countries now include meningococcal serogroup C (MenC) conjugate and, more recently, a meningococ...
Nepalese infants receive ten-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV10) with a 1 month interval between priming doses for programmatic reasons. We aimed to investigate whether immune responses to P...
Comparison of early effects of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines: PCV7, PCV10 and PCV13 on Streptococcus pneumoniae nasopharyngeal carriage in a population based study; The Palestinian-Israeli Collaborative Research (PICR).
Pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs), PCV10 and PCV13, are currently used in different countries. We have previously reported the effectiveness of PCV7, following its introduction in Israel and befo...
Pneumococcal carriage is a precursor of invasive pneumococcal disease. Mozambique introduced 10-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV10) in April 2013, using a 3-dose schedule without a booster. ...
In the United States (US), diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccination is recommended at 2, 4, and 6 months (doses 1-3), 15-18 months (dose 4), and 4-6 years (dose 5). The objec...
Any vaccine raised against any virus or viral derivative that causes hepatitis.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).
A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).
A species in the genus HEPATOVIRUS containing one serotype and two strains: HUMAN HEPATITIS A VIRUS and Simian hepatitis A virus causing hepatitis in humans (HEPATITIS A) and primates, respectively.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
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 ...
