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 Good vaccines should not affect the way other cells behave but rather only fight the relevant microbes that cause an illness. A good vaccine is one that is used in the right manner by the immune system body cells without affecting the infected cells in the body or altering their functionality. 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.
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. 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. This is done for the purpose of studying how the real microbe behaves in the natural infection. 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. A number of examples diseases are yellow fever, smallpox, measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox and rotavirus.
The second form of support vaccine is the toxic vaccine that emanates from harmful chemicals from bacteria those secret toxins. 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. After the body is immunized it learns how to fight the natural toxic substance by releasing antibodies that fight the toxic substance and finally stop its production. 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. 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.
