Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Immunity in College Students

2014-08-27 03:19:52 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will lay the foundation for determining the underlying reasons for lack of immunity to mumps that led to the 2006 mumps outbreak on college campuses in the Mid West, and it will assess the potential for similar outbreaks of measles and rubella. A total of 70 to 80 college students (age 18 to 22) on the Emory campus (or nearby college campuses) will be assessed for antibodies to measles, mumps or rubella by drawing a one-time blood sample at the Student Health Services Center. Their medical records will be verified for documentation of age appropriate immunization with MMR vaccine prior to enrollment in the study. If a study volunteer is found to not have mumps immunity, they will be offered an MMR-II vaccine. For this group, additional blood specimens will be obtained.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

A combined vaccine used to prevent MEASLES; MUMPS; and RUBELLA.

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 duck embryo or human diploid cell tissue culture origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of nonpregnant adolescent and adult females of childbearing age who are unimmunized and do not have serum antibodies to rubella. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (Dorland, 28th ed)

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.
