In this study it was assumed that there was no immunity following resolution of natural infection. The modeling demonstrated that a vaccine of moderate efficacy could have a significant impact on the prevalence of gonorrhea if strategically implemented (23). While encouraging it does, of course, depend on the availability of a vaccine. From Ecological Data to Evidence The epidemiological evidence from Cuba, Brazil, and New Zealand demonstrates that N. meningitidis OMV vaccines are possibly able to provide some broader protection against meningococcal disease (17, 24), particularly in older children and adults (25). These...

We describe the use of a single intralesional treatment with the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine to successfully eliminate both local and distant recalcitrant warts as well as the proposed mechanism of this method. There are no other known reports of complete wart regression at distant untreated sites after a single intralesional MMR treatment.

Introduction: Viral warts are common skin lesions caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. The superficial epidermis is infected with HPV, causing keratinocyte proliferation and hyperkeratosis. Although benign, they may be tender and cosmetically bothersome. In some cases, warts are recalcitrant to conventional therapies including topical agents, cryotherapy, electrosurgery, and laser ablation. The use of intralesional injections of measles-mumps-rubella vaccine represents a novel immunologic modality of treatment for recalcitrant warts and will prove particularly useful for patients who are less suitable for surge...

Conclusion Many parents are unaware that doctors’ reasons for recommending dozens of vaccinations may not be tied to the health of children, but to other reasons, such as financial incentives, paid meals, lack of unbiased information about vaccines, and negative peer pressure. Moms and dads trust their health care providers to help them make the best choices about their little ones’ health, but physicians are unable to do so when their job security and financial bonuses are tied to the the widespread use of vaccines. Informed parents must take the threat of vaccine injury seriously and do their own research wel...
