Human Response

  • Vaccination Protocol: The use of Adacel vaccine as a primary series, or to complete the primary series, has not been studied. Vaccination with Adacel vaccine may not protect all of vaccinated individuals (FDA: Adacel).
  • Immune Response: Strong antibody response was induced after the first immunization. The antibody response after booster immunization was also strong, esp. for young age group. The Adacel-induced immune response levels after the first immunization and booster immunization were comparable to those induced by a US licensed Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids Adsorbed For Adult Use (Td) vaccine manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur Inc., Swiftwater, PA (FDA: Adacel).
  • Side Effects: A severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) after a previous dose of Adacel vaccine. Also, headache, body ache or muscle weakness, tiredness, chills, sore and swollen joints, nausea, lymph node swelling, diarrhea, vomiting, and rash may result.(FDA: Adacel)

Human Response

  • Vaccination Protocol: BOOSTRIX is a vaccine indicated for active booster immunization against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis as a single dose.
  • Immune Response: In Boostrix, N=1440 to 1444, pre-vaccination levels in a 95% confidence interval were 85.2, while post-vaccination levels at a 95% confidence interval were 98.2 (FDA Boostrix).
  • Side Effects: : Common solicited adverse events (≥15%) in adolescents were pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site, increase in arm circumference of injected arm, headache, fatigue, and gastrointestinal symptoms (FDA Boostrix).

Human Response

  • Immune Response: One clinical study found that among a random subset of children who received the fourth dose of DAPTACEL vaccine at 15-16 months of age, 96.5% achieved diphtheria antitoxin levels of ≥1.0 IU/mL after the fourth dose. (FDA: DAPTACEL).
  • Side Effects: The most common side effects reported are: injection site reactions, fussiness/irritability, inconsolable crying, and decreased activity/lethargy, and fever (FDA: DAPTACEL).
  • Efficacy: A tetanus antitoxin level ≥0.1 IU/mL as measured by the ELISA used in clinical studies of DAPTACEL vaccine is considered protective (FDA: DAPTACEL).

Human Response

  • Side Effects: Side effects include: erythema, tenderness and induration at the injection site and 2% systemic reactions consisting of headache, malaise and temperature elevations. Boosters can accentuate side effects (FDA Decavac).
  • Efficacy: The results that indicated protective levels of antibody were achieved in greater than 90% of the study population after primary immunization with both components. Booster effects were achieved in 100% of the individuals with pre-existing antibody responses (FDA Decavac).

Human Response

  • Immune Response: In one clinical trial, protective levels of diphtheria and tetanus antitoxins were detected in 100% of the children following two doses of the vaccine (FDA: dttadLB).
  • Side Effects: Adverse reactions may be local and include redness, warmth, edema, induration, with or without tenderness, as well as urticaria, and rash. Malaise, transient fever, pain, hypotension, nausea and arthralgia may develop as well (FDA: dttadLB).
  • Efficacy: A complete vaccination series substantially reduces the risk of developing diphtheria, and vaccinated persons who develop disease have milder illness. Protection lasts at least 10 years. Vaccination does not, however, eliminate carriage of C. diphtheriae in the pharynx or nose or on the skin (FDA: dttadLB).

Human Response

  • Immune Response: Ninety percent of infants who received Hib simultaneously with INFANRIX achieved anti-PRP antibodies >1 mcg/mL (N = 72), and 96% to 100% of infants who received OPV simultaneously with INFANRIX showed protective neutralizing antibody to poliovirus Types 1, 2, and 3 (N = 60-61) (FDA Infanrix).
  • Side Effects: Injection site reactions, irritability, drowsiness, loss of appetite, vomiting, and crying (FDA Infanrix).

Human Response

  • Immune Response: After vaccination, antibody levels in clinical trials was determined to be between 85-100% for all subjects (FDA: KINRIX).
  • Side Effects: The most common side effects reported are: local injection site reactions, drowsiness, fever and loss of appetite (FDA: KINRIX).

Human Response

  • Immune Response: In response to vaccination, all patients seem to have around 90-100% antibody response.
  • Side Effects: Most common side effects reported are: local injection site reactions, fever, fussiness/irritability, and loss of appetite.
  • Efficacy: Following immunization, protection persists for at least 10 years.

Human Response

  • Immune Response: There was no evidence for interference in the immune response to the fourth dose of PCV7 (percent of participants with antibody levels ≥0.15 μg/mL and ≥0.5 μg/mL and GMCs to each serotype) administered at 15 months of age concomitantly with Pentacel vaccine (N = 155) (FDA: Pentacel).
  • Side Effects: Injection site reactions include: Redness, swelling, tenderness, and an increase in arm circumference. The Systemic reactions include: fever, decreased activity, inconsolable crying, and irritability (FDA: Pentacel).
