Title Attitudes of Victorian vaccine providers to pertussis vaccine Author MacIntyre CR; Nolan T Address National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, Canberra, ACT. Source Med J Aust, 161: 5, 1994 Sep 5, 295-9 Abstract OBJECTIVES: To assess the attitudes of Victorian vaccine providers to the pertussis component of the diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine (DTP), and to examine differences between kinds of health professionals. Also, to assess vaccine providers' understanding of National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) guidelines on childhood immunisation with DTP. METHODS: We conducted a postal survey of 765 randomly selected Victorian health professionals involved in childhood vaccination, including medical officers of health (MOHs), general practitioners (GPs), maternal child health nurses (MCHNs), paediatricians and environmental health officers (EHOs). RESULTS: Most (83%) knew that the pertussis component was most frequently responsible for adverse effects of DTP. Thirty-four per cent of all respondents (9% MCHNs, 23% paediatricians, 24% MOHs, 34% EHOs and 39% GPs) believed that pertussis vaccine causes permanent brain damage, 34% did not, and 32% were unsure; 39% believed it causes encephalopathy. Only 9% described vaccination practices entirely in accordance with NHMRC guidelines. Up to 58% of respondents would give diphtheria-tetanus vaccine (DT) in situations when DTP was indicated, and up to 54% would give DTP when it is clearly contraindicated. There was no correlation between knowledge of the safety of DTP and vaccination practices. CONCLUSION: Victorian vaccine providers have doubts about the safety of pertussis vaccine. There is a need to ensure the availability and clarity of immunisation guidelines for health workers, to educate them about the use of pertussis vaccine, and to ensure that this knowledge is put into practice.

Mumps antibody titers before and after administration of MMR trivalent combined vaccines from 3 different company were evaluated by mumps IgG Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) and by neutralizing antibody test (NT). Seroconversion rates determined with the ELISA were around 90% in all 3 different vaccines. The seroconversion by NT test ranged from 63% to 77%. The mumps ELISA is more sensitive method of determination of antibodies against mumps virus than NT. Since ELISA is a much simpler and easier method of determining antibodies than NT, it will be a method of choice in many clinical laboratories.

BACKGROUND: Since the beginning of the program of immunization of children against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) in 1987, various outbreaks of mumps have occurred in Switzerland, with a significant proportion of cases in immunized children. Previous studies have suggested a possible lack of efficacy of the Rubini vaccine strain, which has been much used in this country. METHODS: Incidence study of secondary cases of mumps in the schools of Geneva, between March 18th and June 30th 1994. Study population: During the study period, mumps outbreaks have been observed in 10 school classes. After exclusion of the 10 primary cases, the study population comprised 195 children aged 4 to 12 years. RESULTS: Raw estimation of vaccine efficacy against mumps was 72.5%. Whereas both the Urabe and Jeryl-Lynn strains showed a significant efficacy, the Rubini strain didn't show any significant protective effect. After adjustment by Poisson regressions for the confounding effect of age, efficacy rates and 95% confidence limits were 75.8% (35.6%, 90.9%) for Urabe; 64.7% (10.6%, 86.0%) for Jeryl-Lynn; and 12.4% (-102%, 62.1%) fur Rubini. CONCLUSION: This study didn't show any protective effect of the Rubini vaccine strain. Furthermore, it demonstrated a statistically significant protective effect of the Urabe and Jeryl-Lynn strains, compared to the Rubini strains. In this conditions the use of the Rubini strain should be restricted to situations of confirmed contra-indications to the other vaccinal strains, as long as its protective efficacy is not clearly demonstrated.
