Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Combined vaccines consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and an acellular form of PERTUSSIS VACCINE. At least five different purified antigens of B. pertussis have been used in various combinations in these vaccines.

Compounds consisting of formaldehyde, cresol, GLYCERIN, and water. They are used in the PULPOTOMY of PRIMARY TEETH and as ROOT CANAL IRRIGANTS.

Vaccines that are produced by using only the antigenic part of the disease causing organism. They often require a "booster" every few years to maintain their effectiveness.

A method of providing future reproductive opportunities before a medical treatment with known risk of loss of fertility. Typically reproductive organs or tissues (e.g., sperm, egg, embryos and ovarian or testicular tissues) are cryopreserved for future use before the medical treatment (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation) begins.

Remaining tissue from normal DERMIS tissue after the cells are removed.
