In this whole-population study, researchers demonstrated a 22% vaccine effect of the 10-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine on all-cause acute otitis media.
The Phase 2b study is in the process of enrolling 400 people to evaluate multiple dosing regimens. PaxVax expects the results in early 2019.
Although efforts to debunk antivaccination beliefs often rely on fact-based strategies, emerging evidence suggests it may be more effective to target the psychological roots of these beliefs.
Researchers found there are no associations between vaccinations and multiple sclerosis relapse flares.
The sBLA included clinical data from a Phase 4 study that enrolled nearly 2000 children and assessed the safety and immunogenicity of the 0.5mL dose.
Study provides new data on the durability of the humoral immune response up to 2 years after single-dose injection with rVSV-ZEBOV vaccine in a population of primarily European ancestry, and additional data on durability at 1 year after vaccination in 2 African populations.
Researchers found being born in an odd calendar year, especially in the winter or fall seasons, emerged as a risk factor for rotavirus in the postvaccine era in the United States.
The FDA has granted Breakthrough Therapy designation to Trumenba for immunization caused by Neisseria meningitidis group B in children.
The CDC has published ACIP recommendations regarding the use of Heplisav-B.
This updated Committee Opinion includes more recent data on the safety and efficacy of influenza vaccination during pregnancy, as well as recommendations for treatment and postexposure chemoprophylaxis.
Adult caretaker influenza vaccination cocooning programs can prove beneficial and financially successful in private practice models where external funding is limited or not available.
Study adds to the body of existing evidence to support universal vaccination of all children from 6 months of age, irrespective of risk status, to prevent influenza in this age group and to reduce the spread of influenza in the general population.
MF59 adjuvanted, quadrivalent influenza vaccine (aQIV) was found to be more efficacious in preventing influenza than a non-adjuvanted conventional influenza vaccine in children aged 6 through 23 months.
A vaccine against Zika virus, once available and effectively deployed, may substantially reduce prenatal infections.
The morphology of the lesions included erythematous papules, pseudovesicles, and plaques, with associated pain in 2 and pruritus in 3 patients; systemic symptoms ranged from none to low‐grade fevers, upper respiratory symptoms, and joint pain.
Among children there was an increased risk for acute respiratory illness caused by noninfluenza respiratory pathogens following influenza vaccination compared to unvaccinated children during the same period.
A Zika virus vaccine shown to be of moderate to high efficacy in eliminating prenatal infections provides 90% coverage.
Although substantial emphasis is placed on vaccinations in considering how to limit the spread of influenza, simple hygienic methods have been found to be the most effective and should be more widely supported.
The HR-HPV types covered by the nonavalent HPV vaccine had similar clearance rates to HR-HPV types not included, and women infected with multiple anogenital HR-HPV types had lower rates of clearance than women infected with only 1 type.
Compared with the general population, children with autism spectrum disorder and their younger siblings are undervaccinated.
Study evaluated the immunogenicity and safety of 1 and 2 doses of the quadrivalent meningococcal serogroups A, C, W, Y tetanus toxoid-conjugate vaccine in individuals with functional or anatomic asplenia.
From January to March 2017, the researchers distributed a cross-sectional online survey to all physicians in the Division of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Innovation at NYULH, across 5 different practice settings. A total of 138 (out of 530) responded (26%).
The potential role of vaccinations in combatting antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is currently undervalued. The distribution and development of new vaccines should be priorities in efforts to address the AMR crisis.
Researchers reviewed clinical trial data to evaluate the efficacy of herpes zoster subunit vaccine in preventing complications, hospitalizations, and deaths.
Researchers compared the safety and immunogenicity of the quadrivalent, recombinant influenza vaccine vs the inactivated influenza vaccine in children and adolescents 6 to 17 years of age.
