Vaccine failure and vaccine-induced infection: Note: Also see the category shedding — Acute flaccid paralysis surveillance indicators in the Democratic Republic of Congo during 2008-2014. “Of the 13,749 AFP cases investigated, 58.9% received at least three doses of oral polio vaccine (OPV), 7.3% never received OPV, while the status of 18.3% was unknown.” #Polio #Paralysis […]


Adventitious agents in viral vaccines: Lessons learned from 4 case studies “The four cases are: a) SV40 in polio vaccines; b) bacteriophage in measles and polio vaccines; c) reverse transcriptase in measles and mumps vaccines; and d) porcine circovirus and porcine circovirus DNA sequences in rotavirus vaccines.” #Contamination #SV40 #Polio #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch #Rotavirus #Measles #MMR […]


🛑 Adverse effect versus quality control of the Fuenzalida-Palacios antirabies vaccine. “We evaluated the components of the Fuenzalida-Palacios antirabies vaccine, which is till used in most developing countries in human immunization for treatment and prophylaxis. This vaccine is prepared from newborn mouse brains at 1% concentration. Even though the vaccine is considered to have a […]


Anaphylaxis following single component measles and rubella immunisation. “Anaphylaxis as an adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) is a rare occurrence. We report four cases of anaphylaxis following administration of single component measles or rubella vaccine between January 2003 and June 2007. We estimate that the incidence of anaphylaxis to measles and rubella single component vaccines […]

🛑 Assessment of iatrogenic transmission of HCV in Southern Italy: was the cause the Salk polio vaccination? “Since the first studies on hepatitis C virus (HCV) prevalence were published, it has been evident that southern Italy is an area of hyperendemicity. A recent study conducted in southern Italy suggested that the high prevalence of HCV […]
