In case of status epilepsy, various symptoms are associated with various disorders like multiple sclerosis, migraine and epilepsy. According to the neurologists and medical professionals, paroxysmal disorders are often associated with sudden falls, headaches, and vertigo attacks. In certain cases an individual suffering from paroxysmal disorders will be showing signs of memory… Continue Reading Status epilepsy

Immunological agents include products for both – active immunization i.e. vaccines, as well as passive immunization i.e. immunoglobulins. Vaccines are formulations containing live or killed pathogens, their subunits or their toxins, minus their virulence. Currently available immunization schedule for children Vaccines may be classified into different types based upon the… Continue Reading Immunization schedule for children

Success of vaccination in an individual child is assessed by sero-conversion (development of adequate antibody titers), while success of a vaccine or vaccination program is indicated by seroconversion rate or decrease in incidence of disease, among inoculated population. Important determinants of Immunization effectiveness include — a) Dose and immunogenicity of… Continue Reading Immunization effectiveness

Since the global eradication of small pox from May 8th, 1980, Immunizations for children has been established as the most cost- effective preventive measure against infectious diseases. Immunizations for children may be defined as ‘induction of specific immune response’ by either — a) Deliberate inoculation of irnmunogens to stimulate in… Continue Reading Immunizations for children

Hypersensitivity disorder, in context of immunology, denotes ‘untoward and inappropriate immunological response’ to a foreign antigen involving antigen-specific antibodies and memory cells. According to immunopathogenesis, hypersensitivity disorder reactions may be divided into four types — 1) Type I (IgE mediated) reactions, also termed as allergy, are triggered by the binding… Continue Reading Hypersensitivity disorder
