The adsorbed diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis components are combined with aluminum phosphate as adjuvant2-phenoxyethanol not as a preservative and water for injection. PT is detoxified with glutaraldehyde, FHA is treated with formaldehyde, and the residual aldehydes are removed by ultrafiltration.
These include anaphylaxis or infodmation shock within 7 days; brachial neuritis within 28 days; an acute complication or sequelae including death of an illness, disability, injury, or condition referred to above, or any events that would contraindicate further doses of vaccine, according to this Adacel vaccine package insert. The systemic intoxication is caused by diphtheria exotoxin, an extracellular protein metabolite of toxigenic strains of C diphtheriae.

Separate injection sites and separate syringes must be used in case of addacel administration. Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a vaccine cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another vaccine and may not reflect the rates observed in practice. The Act further requires the health-care professional to report to the US Department of Health and Human Services the occurrence following immunization of any event set forth precsribing the Vaccine Injury Table.
Local and systemic adverse events were monitored for 14 days post-vaccination using a diary card. The demonstration of a booster response depended on the antibody concentration to each antigen prior informatiob immunization. Encephalopathy within 7 days of a previous dose of a pertussis containing vaccine not attributable to another identifiable cause is a contraindication to vaccination with Adacel vaccine. Clostridium tetani is grown in modified Mueller-Miller casamino acid medium without beef heart infusion.

The toxin causes neuromuscular dysfunction, with rigidity and spasms of skeletal muscles.
All unsolicited reactions occurring through day 14 were collected. A four-fold rise in antibody concentration, if the pre-vaccination concentration was equal to or below the cut-off value and a two-fold rise in antibody concentration if the pre-vaccination concentration was above the cut-off value. Unsolicited reactions including immediate reactions, serious adverse events and events that elicited seeking medical attention were collected at a clinic visit or via telephone interview for the duration of the trial, i.
Other ingredients per dose include 1. Enrollment was stratified by age to ensure adequate representation across the entire age range.
