Immunization Dr.T.V.Rao

  1. 1. Immunization. Current Trends 2007 Dr.T.V.Rao MD
  2. 2. Immunization = Vaccination <ul><li>What is a Vaccine </li></ul><ul><li>A vaccine is a substance that is introduced into the body to prevent Infection or a certain Pathogen </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used in bacterial, Viral, Parasitic Infections. </li></ul>
  3. 3. History Guides the Future
  4. 4. Edward Jenner Vaccinating
  5. 5. Beginning of Vaccination . <ul><li>Vaccination ( Latin ; Vacca- Cow ) </li></ul><ul><li>Edward Jenner used the term Vaccination </li></ul><ul><li>Cow pox virus provided immunity in prevention of Small pox </li></ul>
  6. 6. Scientific Era of Vaccination . <ul><li>Louis Pasteur adopts the principles of Vaccination </li></ul><ul><li>For his scientific work. </li></ul><ul><li>Vaccination for prevention of Rabies creates awareness on Immunization with scientific fundamentals </li></ul>

What we have achieved with Vaccination <ul><li>Cost effective method in controlling the infectious diseases. </li></ul><ul><li>Small pox - Eradicated. </li></ul><ul><li>Immunization prevents many diseases </li></ul><ul><li>We have created Herd immunity in commonly prevalent diseases. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Eradication of Small Pox <ul><li>WHO efforts with various Governmental and Social Organizations have changed History of Medicine </li></ul>
  11. 11. Principles of Immunization Development of Immunology has foundations on Vaccines
  12. 12. Different protocols to Immunization <ul><li>Passive Immunization </li></ul><ul><li>Active Immunization . </li></ul>
  13. 13.

  48. 49. Need for Vaccines in HIV/AIDS
  49. 50. Why Vaccines are Difficult to Development in AIDS <ul><li>H I V infection is produced by most complex virus ever identified and it is extremely good at evading any Immune Mediated strategy detected against. </li></ul><ul><li>H I V is Genetically diverse. </li></ul><ul><li>New forms ( clades ) are emerging all through infection, </li></ul>
  50. 51. Vaccine Options <ul><li>1 Live attenuated or whole killed HIV virus Failed due to safety fears, Trails stopped . </li></ul><ul><li>2 Sub Unit vaccines ( gp 20 model ) </li></ul><ul><li>Failed in Major trails . </li></ul><ul><li>3 DNA vaccines </li></ul><ul><li>Isolated HIV genes used to stimulate </li></ul><ul><li>cell mediated Immunity . </li></ul>
  51. 52. Vaccine Options ( Contd ) <ul><li>4 Recombinant Vaccine - Isolated genes delivered through another viral vector, </li></ul><ul><li>Most trials use this method </li></ul>
  52. 53. Vaccine Options <ul><li>5 Combination Vaccines. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiples trails are in progress with combination of Designs, strategies, </li></ul><ul><li>And </li></ul><ul><li>Immunogens which can produce a broader more powerful, and more durable immune response. </li></ul>
  53. 54. The Quest for the AIDS vaccine continues Various National and International Organization are committed for development of a effective Vaccine
  54. 55. Present HIV Vaccination Trails
  55. 56.

  56. 57. Contraindication to Vaccination In spite of great success with many vaccines, yet a caution and wisdom are essential I
  57. 58. Contra -indications to Vaccination <ul><li>Do not give vaccines to acutely ill patients. </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid giving live vaccines to pregnant women </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid all types of vaccines in the first Trimester of pregnancy, </li></ul><ul><li>Do not give live vaccines to immunosupressed patients and patients suffering with RES malignancies, </li></ul>
  58. 59. Contraindication ( Cont ) <ul><li>In spite of Immune suppression in HIV infected, we can still give MMR and Oral polio drops ( But Salk killed vaccine is safe). </li></ul><ul><li>In HIV patients do not give BCG vaccine </li></ul>
  59. 60. What is an ideal vaccine. <ul><li>Promotes effective immunity. </li></ul><ul><li>Controls lifelong protection. </li></ul><ul><li>Safe, do not carry side effects. </li></ul><ul><li>Stable, cheap, </li></ul><ul><li>Acceptance by public. </li></ul><ul><li>Yet there is No Ideal Vaccine . </li></ul>
  60. 61. Care in Vaccination <ul><li>Some subjects may develop acute anaphylaxis with vaccination, </li></ul><ul><li>Be prepared to resuscitate the individuals, </li></ul>
  61. 62. Unresolved problems <ul><li>Nothing is perfect </li></ul><ul><li>No Vaccine is totally Protective </li></ul><ul><li>Influenza – Needs very frequent updating </li></ul><ul><li>Cholera vaccine –Little effective in reality </li></ul>
  62. 63. WHO Initiatives On Vaccine Strategies and Development
  63. 64. WHO <ul><li>Supports the Research of various Biological </li></ul><ul><li>Organizations which produce the Newer </li></ul><ul><li>Vaccines </li></ul><ul><li>Helps the Implementation various programmers related to Vaccines </li></ul>
  64. 65. Vaccine Research <ul><li>Now major research is focused on finding the safe and Socially acceptable vaccines </li></ul><ul><li>Refer for current knowledge on Vaccines. </li></ul><ul><li>VACCINE - is a International peer-reviewed journal of Vaccination Research </li></ul><ul><li>Indexed in Medline pISSN: 0264-410X </li></ul>
  65. 66. Science Hopes a Vaccine for every Disease
  66. 67. Vaccination created HOPE in Humanity
  67. 68. Created for awareness among Medical and Health care workers in Developing world. Dr.T.V.Rao MD [email_address]
