Serogroups C, W, or Y, which are included in vaccines available in the United States, cause 73% of all cases of meningococcal disease among persons 11 years of age or older.

The incidence of serogroups C and Y, which represent the majority of cases of meningococcal disease preventable by the conjugate vaccines, are at historic lows.

All 11 to 12 year olds should receive a meningococcal conjugate vaccine. Since protection wanes, CDC recommends a booster dose at age 16 years.

The booster dose provides protection during the ages when adolescents are at highest risk of meningococcal disease. Meningococcal Vaccines book and young adults (16 through 23 years old) may also receive a serogroup B.

Meningococcal disease generally occurs 1–10 days after exposure and presents as meningitis in ≥50% of cases. Meningococcal meningitis is characterized by sudden onset of headache, fever, and stiffness of the neck, sometimes accompanied.

The population-wide use of NeisVac-C in national vaccination programs has resulted in marked reductions in serogroup C invasive meningococcal disease in the eligible age groups, including in Australia. 68,95, Although antibody levels wane after vaccination with meningococcal C conjugate vaccines, current serogroup C meningococcal.

A new era of vaccinology and nanotechnology entered the field of meningococcal vaccines, that facilitate the development of novel meningococcal vaccine formulations that mimic conjugation effects by using albumin-based nanoparticles encapsulated into a spherical shaped micro and nanoparticles that biologically mimics N.

Antibiotic Chemoprophylaxis In the United States and most industrialized countries, antibiotic chemoprophylaxis is recommended for close contacts of a patient with invasive meningococcal disease to prevent secondary cases. Make optimal use of the latest vaccines for pneumococcal disease, rotavirus, human papillomavirus, herpes zoster, meningococcal disease, and much more.

All the chapters have comprehensive bibliographies, and are well structured. The text is easily accessible and is recommended to those who are seeking to critically appraise the field of meningococcal vaccines." - Epidemiology and Infection "This book and its accompanying volume are well produced, easy to read and well edited.

Since after the meningococcal vaccine, vaccines against tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough, as well as the HPV and herpes vaccines, will need to be added to the immunization schedule. The article also says that vaccination is usually much cheaper than the cost of treatment, but not in the cases of meningococcus.

Timely and comprehensive, Meningococcal Vaccines: Methods and Protocols provides the scientist, public health physician, epidemiologist, clinical microbiologist, and clinician with the essential tools to lay bare the secrets of the meningococcus and to develop, evaluate, and implement successful new meningococcal vaccines.

The first conjugate meningococcal vaccine in the United States, MCV4 (Menactra), was licensed inwith a second, MenACWY-CRM (Menveo), licensed in These are the preferred vaccines for individuals between two years and 55 years of age; Menactra is approved for ages two to 55, and Menveo for ages 11 to (See our article, Different.

Meningococcal vaccine refers to any of the vaccines used to prevent infection by Neisseria meningitidis. Different versions are effective against some or all of the following types of meningococcus: A, B, C, W, and Y.

The vaccines are between 85 and % effective for at least two years. They result in a decrease in meningitis and sepsis among populations where Target disease: Neisseria meningitidis. There are three types of meningococcal vaccines. The oldest vaccine is a polysaccharide, containing fragments of the meningococcal polysaccharide capsule of four serotypes as antigens (MPSV4).

These vaccines are characterized by low immunogenicity in children, so they should not be used for primary immunization in patients younger than 5 years.

(Both MenACWY vaccines have been certified as Halal.) Contacts. Close contacts of a person with meningococcal infection may be offered immunisation. The vaccine used depends on the meningococcal group causing the illness.

(Close contacts are likely to also be advised to take antibiotic medicines for a few days.)Author: Dr Colin Tidy. Capsule polysaccharide vaccines for the pathogenic meningococcal serogroups A, C, Y and W used before the era of conjugated vaccines reduced the incidence of infection among military recruits, reduced the progress of epidemics of serogroup A disease and protected susceptible complement factor-deficient individuals.

12 These vaccines are safe. Less common manifestations of meningococcal infection include conjunctivitis, septic arthritis, and chronic meningococcemia. Invasive infections can be complicated by arthritis, myocarditis, pericarditis, and endophthalmitis.

The overall case-fatality rate for meningococcal disease is ~15% and is somewhat higher in late adolescence and in adults. Meningococcal disease is caused by the bacteria Neisseria meningitidis.

There are 13 known sub-types and of these, 5 are currently vaccine preventable (B and A, C, W, Y). Inthe main serotypes causing disease in Australia are B, W and Y, with variations noted by state.

The increase in meningococcal W disease has been clearly outlined and regularly updated by the. The meningitis ACWY vaccines offers protection against 4 types of bacteria that can cause meningitis: meningococcal groups A, C, W and Y.

Young teenagers, sixth formers and "fresher" students going to university for the first time are advised to have the vaccination.
