What is the Interval For Non-simultaneous Administration of Live Virus Vaccines?

Discussion Vaccines are a mainstay of infectious disease prevention and health promotion. Infants, children and adults benefit from vaccines the most when they are given on the recommended schedules. However there are times when this is not possible as children come to the physician a little early, or a little late, or had unavailable records and so received addition vaccine, etc. There are many questions that arise because of these timing issues such as the one above. Standard vaccine schedules can be reviewed here. Commonly administered vaccines includes: Live-attenuated vaccines Cholera Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR combined vaccine) Polio, oral Rotavirus Smallpox Typhoid, oral Varicella Yellow fever Inactivated vaccines Hepatitis A Influenza, injectable Polio, injectable Rabies Typhoid, injectable Subunit, recombinant, polysaccharide, and conjugate vaccines Haemophilus influenzae type b (HIB) disease Hepatitis B Human papillomavirus (HPV) Pertussis (part of the DTaP combined vaccine) Pneumococcal disease Meningococcal disease Varicella zoster Toxoid vaccines Diphtheria Tetanus Simultaneous vaccine administration Children can receive as many vaccines as needed at one time, so called simultaneous administration. There is no upper limit to the number of vaccines that can be given simultaneously. All vaccines that are indicated can be given simultaneously. There are no contraindications to this practice with 2 exceptions: 1) a patient needing both PCV13 (pneumococc...

In this study, a sensitive and reliable reverse transcription droplet digital polymerase chain reaction (RT-ddPCR) assay was developed to detect and quantify CYVCV without references. The specificity of the assay was demonstrated by its failure to amplify other relevant citrus viruses. The quantitative linearity, sensitivity and accuracy of RT-ddPCR for detecting CYVCV were compared to those of real-time RT-PCR. The results showed that both methods had a high degree of linearity (R2 = 0.9776) and quantitative correlation. Furthermore, RT-ddPCR was found to be 100 times more sensitive than real-time RT-PCR, an...

n Chen Weihua Zhang Objective: We summarized the progress of the xCELLigence real-time cell analysis (RTCA) technology application in recent years for the sake of enriching and developing the application of RTCA in the field of Chinese medicine. Background: The RTCA system is an established electronic cellular biosensor. This system uses micro-electronic biosensor technology that is confirmed for real-time, label-free, dynamic and non-offensive monitoring of cell viability, migration, growth, spreading, and proliferation. Methods: We summarized the relevant experiments and literature of RTCA technology from the princ...

nying Wu Dean Guo By investigating of the roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza, which is one of the most widely used Chinese herbs, we used phytochemical methods successfully to obtain twelve depsides: four depsides (1–4) that were previously undescribed, along with eight known ones (5–12). Their structure characteristics were assessed by HR-ESIMS, CD, NMR (1H, 13C, HSQC, HMBC) data analyses. These four newly isolated compounds (1–4), as well as the other eight compounds (5–12), show extraordinary protective effects on hydrogen peroxide-induced apoptosis in HS-SY5Y cells. Among them, d...

Many people who are diagnosed with cancer will undergo some type of surgery to treat their disease — almost 95 percent of people with early-diagnosed breast cancer will require surgery and it’s often the first line of treatment for people with brain tumors, for example. But despite improvements in surgical techniques over the past decade, the cancer often comes back after the procedure.Now, a UCLA-led research team has developed a spray gel embedded with immune-boosting drugs that could help. In a peer-reviewed study, the substance was successful half of the time in awakening lab animals ’ immune systems ...
