The acellular pertussis vaccine components are obtained from Bordetella pertussis cultures grown in Stainer-Scholte medium 1 modified by the addition of casamino acids and dimethyl-beta-cyclodextrin.

The demonstration of a booster response depended on the antibody concentration to each antigen prior to immunization. Injection Site Pain Any This material is provided for educational purposes only and is not intended for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Among adults the rates of pain, after receipt of Adacel vaccine or Td vaccine, did not significantly differ.

Tetanus is an acute and often fatal disease caused by an extremely potent neurotoxin produced by C tetani. An additional 1, adolescents received Adacel vaccine as part of the lot consistency study used to support Adacel vaccine licensure.

Similar or lower rates of serious adverse events were reported in the other trials and there were no additional neuropathic events reported. Toxigenic strains are more often associated with severe or fatal respiratory infections than with cutaneous infections. The use of Adacel vaccine as a primary series, or to complete the primary series, has not been studied. Adacel vaccine is not indicated for individuals 65 years of age and older.


Individuals who have completed primary immunization against tetanus and who sustain wounds that are minor and uncontaminated, should receive a booster dose of a tetanus toxoid containing preparation if they have not received tetanus toxoid within the preceding 10 years. Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a vaccine informattion be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another vaccine and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

A total of 5, individuals years of age inclusive 3, adolescents years of age and 2, adults years received a single dose of Adacel vaccine. The second dose of Hep B vaccine was given weeks after the first dose.

The rates reported for fever and injection site pain at the Adacel vaccine administration site were similar when Adacel and Hep B vaccines were given concurrently or separately. See Table 1 and Table 2.

The rates of unsolicited adverse events reported from days post-vaccination were comparable between the two groups, as were the rates of unsolicited adverse events from day unformation through 6 months. Persons who experienced Arthus-type hypersensitivity reactions e.


Immunosuppressive therapies, including irradiation, antimetabolites, alkylating agents, cytotoxic drugs and corticosteroids used in greater than physiologic dosesmay reduce adacl immune response to vaccines.

Available for Android and iOS devices. The principal immunogenicity study was adaccel comparative, multi-center, randomized, observer-blind, controlled trial which enrolled 4, participants; 2, adolescents years of age and 2, adults years of age.

Other ingredients per dose include 1. The primary measures of immunogenicity were a the percentage of participants attaining an antibody level of at least 0. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, axacel should be exercised when Adacel vaccine is given to a nursing woman. Complete immunization significantly reduces the risk of developing diphtheria and immunized persons who develop disease have milder illness. Both toxigenic and nontoxigenic strains of C diphtheriae can cause disease, but only strains that produce toxin can cause severe manifestations such as myocarditis and neuritis.

No interference was observed in the immune responses to any of the vaccine antigens when Adacel and Hep B vaccines were given concurrently or separately. The incidence of other solicited and unsolicited adverse events were not different between the 2 study groups.
