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...

Brca1 is involved in tolerance to adefovir dipivoxil‑induced DNA damage. Int J Mol Med. 2019 Jun;43(6):2491-2498 Authors: Liu H, Wu Y, He F, Cheng Z, Zhao Z, Xiang C, Feng X, Bai X, Takeda S, Wu X, Qing Y Abstract Nucleos(t)ide analogues (NAs) are currently the most important anti‑viral treatment option for patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Adefovir dipivoxil (ADV), a diester pro‑drug of adefovir, has been widely used for the clinical therapy of hepatitis B virus infection. It has been previously reported that adefovir induced chromosomal aberrations (CAs) in the in vitro human peripheral...

Abstract Owing to oversights during the production process, a pair of errors were introduced into the above article. First, in the Materials and methods section, Animals and cell lines subsection, on p. 1332, line 12, the sentence starting here should have read as: 'The non‑tumorigenic mouse hepatocyte alpha mouse liver 12 (AML12) cell line was purchased from the Shanghai Cell Bank of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shanghai, China)' (i.e., the abbreviation AML12 was expanded incorrectly). Secondly, the bottom row of data was accidentally omitted from Table I (pertaining to the Suzuki score for liver...

This study attempts to shed light on the mechanism of income impact on the adult health outcomes of BMI and overweight through five potential channels: nutritional intakes, dietary diversity, dietary knowledge, food preference, and dining out. Using the panel data from the China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS), we investigate the causal relationship between income and health by considering the changes in the minimum wage as a valid instrument to address the endogeneity problem of income in health estimation. The results indicate that rising income increases the adults’ BMI and the propensity to be overweight; appr...
