PCV10 Reactogenicity and Immunogenicity Study - Malindi

2014-08-27 03:17:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
