    As the global effort to eradicate polio gets tantalizing close to its goal, the program is running in to new challenges. One of the biggest obstacles this year is the proliferation of so-called "vaccine-derived" polio outbreaks. Conventional polio caused by the traditional form of the disease is now only occurring in two countries in the world — Afghanistan and Pakistan. The World Health Organization calls this form "wild" polio and there've been roughly 100 cases so far this year. This is a tiny number compared to the 350,000 cases that occurred globally before the Global Polio Eradication Initiative was launched...
  • New Aborted Fetal Cell Line Emerges for Vaccine Production

    (Largo) Due to dwindling capacity for existing aborted fetal cell lines to self-replicate, scientists in China have developed a new aborted fetal cell line, WALVAX 2 that will be used for viral vaccine production. The existing cell lines, MRC-5 and WI-38 are currently used in MMR, Varicella, Hepatitis-A, Shingles, some rabies and some polio vaccines. WALVAX 2 is taken from the lung tissue of a 3 month gestation female who was ultimately selected from among 9 aborted babies. The scientists noted how they followed specific guidelines to mimic WI-38 and MRC-5 in selecting the aborted babies, ranging from 2-4 months...

    Prof Daniel Bausch, director of the UK Public Health Rapid Support Team, is one of the scientists leading the trial. He said there was "no contest" between the two vaccines, and both had their advantages and disadvantages. Merck's, which is given to those who come into direct and indirect contact with an Ebola patient, could be best used in the middle of an outbreak - while the J&J vaccine could be used to protect people not yet exposed to Ebola. Prof Bausch said: "The J&J vaccine is not ideally suited to an outbreak setting, primarily because it requires two doses...

    “And these are the religious people?!” The state Capitol turned into a chaotic scene Thursday as both houses of legislature — and eventually Gov. Cuomo — passed a bill that will end New York’s policy of allowing religious exemptions from vaccine requirements. Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, the bill’s sponsor, got cursed out and flat-out threatened at one point by opponents of the legislation after it got passed and sent to the Senate floor. “We’ll be back for you Jeffrey!” shouted one man in Orthodox religious garb, who was fuming in the gallery with others, many of whom had children with them....

    A national surge of measles cases has health officials concerned about possible widespread outbreaks of the highly infectious disease. As of May 3, there have been 764 cases of measles reported in the United States — the highest number of annual cases reported in 25 years. In Texas, there have been 15 cases of measles since the start of the year, according to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. A new study released by the University of Texas at Austin Friday predicts 25 counties in the United States have a higher risk for a potential outbreak based on...

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration said Wednesday it is ending medical research by government scientists using human fetal tissue, a victory for abortion foes that comes despite impassioned pleas from scientists that some health problems can't be studied any other way. Research using fetal tissue that otherwise would be discarded has been funded by the government, under leadership of both political parties, for decades — and has led to life-saving advances including development of vaccines for rubella and rabies, and drugs for the HIV virus. Officials said government-sponsored research by universities will be allowed to continue, subject to additional scrutiny....

    The head of an international vaccine group says that misunderstandings and false information about vaccines are spreading on the internet and should be stopped. Seth Berkley of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, spoke Tuesday to a gathering in Geneva, Switzerland, where the World Health Organization is meeting. Berkley said that false information “kills people.” He noted strong scientific evidence of the safety of vaccines. But, he said social media algorithms favor misinformation over facts. He added that such misinformation easily influences people who have not had a family member die from a preventable disease. Berkley said people must consider the belief...

    The news headlines are full of articles about parents refusing vaccines for their children. Now some of those children are infecting others with measles and other contagious diseases. We’re in the middle of the worst measles outbreak in 25 years. But do these parents have valid concerns, that the vaccines could cause harmful side effects? The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that allergic reactions and other serious side effects of vaccines are “very rare.” Vaccines prevent hundreds of thousands of cases of a deadly disease — but it’s true that it may come at the expense of a smaller...

    More than half of Americans polled recently were in favor of vaccinating children against measles, even if it meant going against the parents’ wishes. In a Reuters poll, more than 2,000 people were asked to give their opinions about getting vaccinated for the measles. Advertisement It’s all in relation to the outbreak, which has confirmed 764 cases so far, that’s sweeping the nation. Eighty-five percent of those polled completely agreed with vaccinating every single child unless there a medical reason not to, such as an allergy or otherwise life-threatening issue. Then 77% said children should get immunized even if the...

    April 28 (Reuters) - Adults in the United States who were vaccinated against measles decades ago may need a new dose depending on when they received the shot and their exposure risk, according to public health experts battling the nation's largest outbreak since the virus was deemed eliminated in 2000. Up to 10 percent of the 695 confirmed measles cases in the current outbreak occurred in people who received one or two doses of the vaccine, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The figure illustrates what can happen when a large number of individuals, even those...

Those students and university employees, numbering more than 100, were being ordered to stay home, avoid contact with others and notify public health officials if they develop symptoms...

    New York City Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot on Tuesday warned parents in the city not to hold so-called "measles parties" as officials work to counter an outbreak of the disease. Barbot warned that some parents have had "measles parties" to have their children infected with the disease in an effort to immunize them naturally, rather than through a vaccination, according to BuzzFeed News. "We are concerned about families having measles parties," Barbot said at a news conference, according to Fox News.

    Says using vaccines made from cell lines derived from aborted children "does not signify some sort of cooperation in voluntary abortion,” a change from its 2005 position The Pontifical Academy for Life has encouraged parents to have their children vaccinated. A statement from the Pontifical Academy—released in July 2017 but only now made public—appears to take a very different tone from a statement issued by the same Vatican office in 2005. In the 2005 statement, the Pontifical Academy for Life noted that many vaccines use cell lines derived from aborted children. Despite the potential benefits of using these vaccines, the...

    A county in New York has declared a state of emergency after more than 100 people have been diagnosed with measles. Rockland County officials announced that starting at 12 a.m. on Wednesday, anyone under 18 who has not yet been vaccinated will be barred from public places until they receive the MMR vaccine or until the emergency declaration expires in 30 days. It's unclear how the ban on public places will be enforced.
