What Is A Vaccine?

Infectious diseases cause an overwhelming number of deaths around the world and their clinical management is often hampered by the emergence of multidrug resistant strains. Therefore, prevention through vaccination is currently the best course of action to beat them.

A vaccine is a biological agent that provides active acquired immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine usually contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism. It is often made from killed or weakened forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins. Body's immune system is stimulated to recognize the agent as a threat and destroy it, and any of these microorganisms that it later encounters.

The Type of Vaccines

Vaccines can be prophylactic (e.g. to prevent or reduce the impact of a future infection by a pathogen), or therapeutic (e.g. cancer vaccines are being investigated). Vaccines exist in many different forms which may contain live, attenuated virus, or an inactivated micro-organism, or some unique molecular component of the organism that causes illnesses. Vaccines can generally be classified as Live Attenuated Vaccine, Inactivated Vaccine, Subunit Vaccine, Vector Vaccine, Conjugate Vaccine, DNA and RNA Vaccine and more.
