Controlling Measles through Politics and Policy.

Authors:
Ross D Silverman

Hastings Cent Rep 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Vaccination is one of history's most successful public health interventions. Since 2000, vaccination campaigns against measles, which is highly contagious but preventable through the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, have reduced both the global incidence of the disease and measles deaths by 80 percent. However, progress toward measles elimination has slid backward in several previously well-protected global regions. Read More

Department of Neonatology, Children's Hospital of Soochow University, Suzhou 215025, Jiangsu, China.

Drug induced hypersensitivity syndrome (DIHS) is often manifested as severe systemic drug trans-reactions characterized by acute and extensive skin lesions (mostly measles-like rash), fever, enlargement of lymph nodes, multiple organ involvement (hepatitis, nephritis, and pneumonia), eosinophilia and mononucleosis,within 2-6 weeks of the application of sensitizing drugs. In the early stage of the lesion, macular papules or erythema multiforme were common, and in severe cases, exfoliative dermatitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis were also common. Most of them developed after taking allergic drugs for 2-6 weeks (average: 3 weeks). Read More

Today's vaccination policies in Italy: The National Plan for Vaccine Prevention 2017-2019 and the Law 119/2017 on the mandatory vaccinations.

Ann Ig 2019 Mar-Apr;31(2 Supple 1):54-64

Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Unit of Infectious Diseases, University of Messina, Italy.

The National Plan for Vaccine Prevention 2017-2019 has expanded the vaccination offer including new vaccines, enlarging the target population and introducing for the first time in Italy a life-course approach to vaccination. A "lifetime immunization schedule" is aimed to reduce the burden and the related costs of vaccine-preventable diseases through effective vaccination programs. However, to counteract the national steady downward trend in the uptake of vaccinations that caused a drop of the vaccination coverage below the 95% threshold to allow herd immunity, it was decided to make 10 vaccinations mandatory by the law 119/2017.

Early measles vaccination during an outbreak in The Netherlands: reduced short and long-term antibody responses in children vaccinated before 12 months of age.

J Infect Dis 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Centre for Infectious Disease Control, National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), Bilthoven, the Netherlands.

Background: The majority of infants will not be protected by maternal antibodies until their first measles vaccination between 12-15 months of age. This provides incentive to reduce the age of measles vaccination, but immunological consequences are insufficiently understood and long-term effects are largely unknown.

Methods: Infants who received early measles vaccination between 6-12 months and a second dose at 14 months of age (n=79) were compared with a control group who received one dose at 14 months of age (n=44). Read More

WorldPop, School of Geography and Environmental Science, University of Southampton, Southampton, SO17 1BJ, UK.

The success of vaccination programs depends largely on the mechanisms used in vaccine delivery. National immunization programs offer childhood vaccines through fixed and outreach services within the health system and often, additional supplementary immunization activities (SIAs) are undertaken to fill gaps and boost coverage. Here, we map predicted coverage at 1 × 1 km spatial resolution in five low- and middle-income countries to identify areas that are under-vaccinated via each delivery method using Demographic and Health Surveys data.

Increase in Infant Measles Deaths during a Nationwide Measles Outbreak - Mongolia, 2015-2016.

J Infect Dis 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Global Immunization Division, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Background: Surveillance data from a large measles outbreak in Mongolia suggested an increased case fatality ratio (CFR) in the second of two waves. To confirm the increase in CFR and identify risk factors for measles death, we enhanced mortality ascertainment and conducted a case-control study among infants hospitalized for measles.

Methods: We linked national vital records with surveillance data of clinically- or laboratory-confirmed infant (aged <12 months) measles cases with rash onset during March-September 2015 (wave 1) and October 2015-June 2016 (wave 2). Read More
