¿Qué pasa con las vacunas? | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it

En este librito encontrarás información reciente, rigurosa pero en un lenguaje fácil, asequible y cómodo de leer sobre qué son las vacunas y por qué sabemos que son seguras, sus efectos secundarios y cuántas vidas han salvado. Hablaremos de los talibanes y de los movimientos anti-vacunas, su origen, sus hipótesis y rebatiremos sus planteamientos. Y contestaremos preguntas concretas sobre el autismo y su relación con las vacunas, la vacuna del papilomavirus, la “fiesta de la varicela”, el SIDA y muchas más. El libro está especialmente recomendado para padres y madres, educadores, profesionales de la salud, periodistas, comunicadores y público en general. Al final tú mismo decidirás si las vacunas funcionan o no.

The Quest for an HIV-1 Vaccine — Moving Forward — NEJM

The Quest for an HIV-1 Vaccine — Moving Forward — NEJM | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it

Perspective from The New England Journal of Medicine — The Quest for an HIV-1 Vaccine — Moving Forward 

Dan H. Barouch, M.D., Ph.D.

N Engl J Med 2013; 369:2073-2076

November 28, 2013DOI: 10.1056/NEJMp1312711

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Testing only four HIV-1 vaccine concepts for clinical efficacy over the past three decades is insufficient given the scope of the global HIV-1 epidemic. We clearly need more “shots on goal.” We should therefore accelerate the advancement of a diverse series of novel and promising HIV-1 vaccine candidates into clinical efficacy trials over the next several years.

El movimiento antivacunas amenaza la salud mundial

El movimiento antivacunas amenaza la salud mundial | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
Las vacunas son uno de los pilares básicos entre los que se asienta la medicina científica y la sanidad actuales.  Y aunque desde nuestra visión occidental marcada por el ideal de progreso y supera...
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Estamos llegando a límites insospechados. El movimiento anti-vacunas que últimamente está creciendo (por poner un ejemplo están llegando ya a Valencia las llamadas "small-pox parties") puede poner en jaque el sistema sanitario de muchos países.

WHO | World Immunization Week 2013

WHO | World Immunization Week 2013 | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
World Immunization Week, April 2013: news, campaign materials, technical resources.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Immunization averts an estimated 2-3 million deaths every year, providing protection from diphtheria, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), pneumonia, polio, rotavirus diarrhoea, rubella and tetanus. Yet, an estimated 22 million infants are not fully immunized with routine vaccines. There is an urgent need to better communicate the health benefits of vaccination and the dangers of not immunizing children.

The Science of Immunisation: questions and answers

 

This publication aims to address confusion created by contradictory information in the public domain. It sets out to explain the current situation in immunisation science, including where there is consensus in the scientific community and where uncertainties exist.

 

The document is structured around six questions:

1 What is immunisation?

2 What is in a vaccine?

3 Who benefits from vaccines?

4 Are vaccines safe?

5 How are vaccines shown to be safe?

6 What does the future hold for vaccination?

 

The Science of Immunisation: Questions and Answers was prepared by a Working Group of eight members, co-chaired by Professors Tony Basten AO FAA FTSE and Ian Frazer AC FAA FRS FTSE. The document was also reviewed by an Oversight Committee chaired by Sir Gus Nossal AO CBE FAA FRS FTSE.
