Childhood vaccines: Tough questions, straight answers

Do vaccines cause autism? Is it OK to skip certain vaccines? Get the facts on these and other common questions. Childhood vaccines protect children from a variety of serious or potentially fatal diseases, including diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, whooping cough (pertussis) and others. If these diseases seem uncommon -- or even unheard of [...]

Abstract Inactivation of rabies virus is essential for rabies vaccine preparation where the inactivating compound that is currently recommended for rabies vaccine preparation is β-propiolactone (β-PL). This compound is considered better than phenol and formalin but it is expensive and potentially carcinogenic. Data revealed that Ascorbic acid (AA) with cupric ions could yield complete and irreversible inactivation of rabies virus without adversely affecting its antigenicity. Additionally, the results of testing the vaccine potency with the selected inactivating compounds were comparable (P

Authors: Rezaei M, Hosseini SN, Khavari-Nejad RA, Najafi F, Mahdavi M Abstract Mannosylation of nanovaccine is an appropriate strategy for targeting the mannose receptors on DCs. Here, HBsAg and mannose loaded on the surface of iron oxide nanoparticles to increases HBsAg vaccine potency. Nanoparticles are made by co-precipitation method and bonded to the HBsAg and mannose by chemical bonding. The physicochemical properties of nano-vaccines, their toxicity and antigenicity were determined. The synthesized nano-vaccine showed spherical shape with a mean particle size of 60 nm, a zeta potential of -44 mV...

Seasonal influenza, or flu, is an airborne respiratory virus that occurs every year in the fall to early spring in the United States. The virus is highly contagious and symptoms can run from mild to severe. In some populations (very young, individuals with chronic comorbid conditions, immunocompromised individuals of all ages, pregnant women, and frail older adults), the virus can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. In a majority of cases, seasonal influenza is preventable through safe and readily available vaccinations.

AbstractThis case reports the largest known malignant solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura treated with en bloc surgical resection warranting the use of cardiopulmonary bypass support. A 60-year-old male presented with dyspnoea and a dry cough. Following extensive investigations, a radiological and histologic diagnosis of malignant solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura was made. This 4.3  kg tumour occupied the entire left hemithorax, involved the left lung and infiltrated into the pericardial cavity. Although the postoperative course was uneventful with a 12-day length of stay, the patient opted not to undergo adjuv...

ConclusionsDC vaccines are a safe and reliable platform for promoting antitumor immunity. This combination with one month of high dose IFN α did not improve outcomes. Immune biomarker analysis in the blood identified several predictive and prognostic biomarkers for further analysis, including MDSC.Trial registrationNCT01622933.

This study examines the effect of employment on delinquent behavior among young people in “hidden situations”. Both quantitative and qualitative methods were used, and 588 young people in these hidden situations were investigated. Results showed that some of them had employment; their employment status constituted a mediating effect on preventing them from being involved in delinquent behavior. Also, participants who had work explained the reasons for not being involved in delinquent behavior. These results reflect that whether young people in hidden situation involve in delinquent behavior depends on their emp...

Conclusions Safe, effective, affordable homeopathic immunizations exist for almost every illness now targeted by unsafe, costly, failed conventional vaccinations. If the goal were to provide protection from disease in a safe manner, why aren’t these safe, inexpensive homeopathic options made available to the public on a large scale? Millions of dollars in healthcare costs would be saved by using a less expensive immunization. Most significant would be the reduction of vaccine-caused diseases including autism, asthma, allergies, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and cancer. The health of Americans would improve in drama...
