Polio vaccines--- adverse reactions

"Poliomyelitis trends in Pondicherry, south India, 1989-91" (Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health [London], vol. 51, no. 4, August 1997, pages 443-48): About 54 percent of children lamed as a result of poliomyelitis had received three doses of oral polio vaccine before the onset of paralysis.

"Paralytic Poliomyelitis -- United States, 1980-1984" (Morbidity Mortality Weekly Report, vo. 46, no. 4,January 31, 1997, pp. 79-83): The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) observes that vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) continues to occur; the risk of VAPP has not decreased. Of 125 cases associated with the vaccine, 46 cases occurred among contacts of vaccine recipients.

"Comparative evaluation of immunization with live attenuated and inactivated polio vaccines" (Annals of the New York Academy of Science, vol. 754, May 31, 1995, pp. 97-107): With both oral attenuated polio vaccine (OPV) and the enhanced potency inactivated polio vaccine (EP-IPV), revertant or non-revertant viral shedding occurred in body wastes for up to 60 days following vaccination. The authors concede, after saying the combined polio vaccines should be effective in establishing immunity in recipients, and should lower the rate of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) in recipients, that VAPP is expected to continue effecting susceptible contacts.

"Poliomyelitis associated with type-2 poliovirus vaccine strain. Possible transmission from an immunised child to a non-immunised child" (The Lancet, vol. 1, March 30, 1968, pp. 661-3): a sixteen-month-old boy hospitalized for high fever and paralysis had never received any poliovirus vaccine. From playing and sharing a bed with a cousin, he apparently had contracted paralytic poliomyelitis from the cousin, who had received type-2 oral poliovirus vaccine thirty-three days before. Virological and serological investigation revealed a vaccine-like strain of type-2 poliovirus. The patient's history revealed no particular susceptibility to infections.

L. J. Morse, et al., Journal of the American Medical Association, vol. 197, 1966, p. 1034: A case of paralytic poliomyelitis in an unvaccinated mother was reported, apparently acquired after exposure to her infant, who had received trivalent live, oral polio vaccine twenty-two days earlier.
