Types of Vaccine Support
Coming up with a vaccine is very sensitive since it requires a lot of keen design formula that that should have elements to fight a disease Moreover, vaccines should be designed in such a manner that they are against illness microbe only without affecting the body cells. Vaccines that happen to affect various cells or alter their functionality when the immune system is responding to microbe is termed to have negative effects thus it cannot carry its purpose effectively. Additionally there are some factors that should be considered when coming up with an effective vaccine which should be how friendly the medicine is with other forms of treatment and the region the patients are in the world just to mention a few of the considerations.
There are a number of main forms of support vaccine medications that are: attenuated vaccine, conjugate vaccine, toxic vaccine, subunit vaccine and inactive vaccine just to mention a few that will be discussed below. The first type of vaccine is the attentive or live vaccine that is made in the lab for the purpose of learning by creating a weakened and is harmless to the body as it cannot cause illness but its present in the bodies system. By developing a microbe in the lab it is to create a similar environment of that which the virus or bacteria thrives on so as to learn how it actually behaves in the body. The main aim of creating microbes in a lab is to study the level at which the body is able to release antibodies to fight the different microbes and fight an illness and how to come up with relevant cure where an individual needs to take a few doses of the medicine to fight the disease of give enough assistance to the immune system to counter act against the harmful microbe. Some example of such vaccine support diseases are smallpox vaccine, yellow fever, measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox and rotavirus.
Harmful chemicals are produced by bacteria that is toxic to the body cells. The toxic produced by the bacteria becomes harmful to the body. Formaldehyde and sterilized water creates solution of formalin which can be used to treat inactive toxins. Antibodies are produced after immunization to fight toxic substances and stop productions of the toxic matter. The common toxics produced by the body are tetanus and diphtheria.
Polysaccharides are used to help protect immature immune systems against illness by linking toxoids and antigens to the immune system. When there are sugar coating on a bacterium that ensures that bacterium antigens protect the immune system of newborn does not react to bacterium antibodies is known as polysaccharides.
