Comparison of the immunogenicity and safety of pentavalent vaccine Quinvaxem in a compact prefilled auto-disabled (cPAD) injection system versus single-dose vials in healthy infants: a phase 3, open-label, randomized, parallel-group, non-inferiority study

Immunization is a cost-effective and life-saving intervention that prevents an estimated two to three million deaths every year from vaccine-preventable diseases.1,2 The aim of the World Health Organization (WHO) Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) is to protect children against life-threatening diseases like tuberculosis, diphtheria, neonatal tetanus, whooping cough, poliomyelitis, and measles, as well as hepatitis B3 and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib).4 According to the WHO, approximately 22.6 million children worldwide did not receive the full three doses of diphtheria–tetanus–pertussis (DTP3) vaccine in 2012.

New research coming out of Durham could increase the effectiveness of a cocaine vaccine that blocks the illicit drug's effect – giving promise for therapeutic applications to help recovery. According to a new study by Duke University researchers, published in the journal npj Vaccines, a new formulation tested in mice has effectively negated the effects of cocaine. The drug works by pushing the body's immune system to c reate antibodies to respond against cocaine. The mice studies, according to…

Conclusions: For one-level ACDF, the anchored cage with screws has some advantage compared to the stand-alone PEEK cage in avoiding dysphagia and restoring disc space height and cervical lordosis. We suggest the anchored spacer may be a good substitute for the stand-alone cage in one-level ACDF. Level of Evidence: Level II
