Vaccines

In 1796, Edward Jenner and Louis Pasture derived the term vaccine. He was pioneer of cow pox vaccine which is used to prevent small pox infections. Vaccine can be manufactured by the living organisms or other biological systems that can improve immunity to a particular disease. Vaccine can provoke our immune system to invade from many diseases. Inhalation, Injection and intake of vaccines are called vaccination. There are two types of immunization: Active and passive immunization. Passive immunization is achieved either by natural process such as transfer of maternal antibody across the placenta to developing fetus or by injecting a recipient with a preformed antibody. On the other hand, Active immunization is acquired by inoculation with pathogen that induces immunity but don’t cause any disease. Not even bacteria, fungi are used for the production of vaccine but transgenic plants are also identified as important system for vaccine production. Banana used as expression system for the development of human vaccine against Hepatitis B.

Children are recommended to receive vaccination before the development of immune system to provide the best protection and to eliminate the risk of disease. Center for disease control and prevention provide vaccination for children against many disease hepatitis A, hepatitis B, polio, mumps, measles, rubella, Diphtheria, Tetanus, chickenpox, influenza and pneumonia. Now many boosters and vaccines are developed for pregnant mother, adolescents and adults to prevent and invade from pathogen. Vaccinations of animals are also very crucial both to prevent their diseases and also to prevent transmission of disease to humans.
