The Different Types of Vaccines
Vaccine support is a very fragile unit in medication as it involves the study of illness characteristics and how to come up with a cure of the disease. Good vaccines should not affect the way other cells behave but rather only fight the relevant microbes that cause an illness. 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. For a support vaccine to be termed as suitable it should poses some level of compatibility with other medications that can be related to similar ailments and also at what part of the world is the medicine recommended for use are some of the issues that should be factored in when designing good vaccine support medication.
The main type of support vaccines are five and will be discussed in the article and they are: toxic vaccine, inactive vaccine, attenuate vaccine, subunit vaccine and conjugate vaccine. These type of vaccine is developed in the vaccine where the real microbe in weakened in the lab to such a point that it cannot harm the body cells causing illness where the real behavior of the microbe is studied so as to find a suitable vaccine. 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. For the purpose of gaining more insight on how to develop a more effective medicine to fight the microbe in the various diseases with the first aim to targeting on knowing the amount of antibodies the body can produce to protect itself from a microbe and designing drugs that would heal one after taking a few doses. A number of examples diseases are yellow fever, smallpox, measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox and rotavirus.
Harmful chemicals are produced by bacteria that is toxic to the body cells. Illness can be caused by the toxic substance secreted by the bacteria. Formaldehyde and sterilized water creates solution of formalin which can be used to treat inactive toxins. When the body is vaccinated it learns how to produce antibodies to fight toxic substances. Diphtheria and tetanus are some of the common produced toxic substance by the body.
Polysaccharides are used to help protect immature immune systems against illness by linking toxoids and antigens to the immune system. A sugar molecules coat a bacterium that disguises the bacterium antigens for the immune system of an infant not to react to them is referred to as polysaccharides.
