Types of Vaccine Support

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. For a vaccine to meet its purpose in the right manner of functionality it should working such a manner that it fights the microbes that cause the disease without affecting or altering other elements of the body functionality. 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. Also when designing a vaccine varying considerations should be taken such as how compatible the vaccine is with other related ailments and the region in the world it will be used.

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. 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. Diseases that are healed or controlled through such vaccine are chickenpox, rotavirus, measles, mumps, rubella, smallpox and yellow fever.

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. 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.

Thirdly, when designing a conjugate vaccine the scientists link toxoids or antigens from a microbe to the immune system to recognize it to the polysaccharides where this linkage helps immature immune system like that of an infant to react to polysaccharide coating and defend that body against diseases caused by bacterium. A polysaccharide is a bacterium possessing an outer coating of sugar molecules which disguise a bacterium antigens so that the immature immune system of a kid can’t recognize or respond to them.
