Example text

Most antivirals are administered by mouth and rapid adsorption of drug and spread to all tissues of the body is often achieved. To maintain active levels of drug in the target organ redosing is required, perhaps twice daily. Clinical use is less convenient if oral absorption is poor, and if the drug has to be given by intravenous infusion or, in the case of respiratory infections, by aerosol or nasal spray. However, it could be argued that with respiratory infection direct application of a drug to the nose and airways could have medical advantages.

As a rule, it appears that asymptomatic HIV-infected individuals can be offered virus vaccines. EPIDEMIOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES OF MASS VACCINATION If an individual benefits from being immunized it is often assumed that the overall effect on society at large will be equally beneficial. This may not, however, always be the case. The reason for this is that we are changing aspects of herd immunity and it may not be possible to precisely anticipate the shift of susceptible cohorts. g. measles). A special case is the use of rubella vaccine: if only a low but still significant fraction of children and teenagers is immunized, there is a possibility, through the consequent reduced spread of wild-type virus in the community, of accumulating more susceptible women at childbearing age, and thus possibly increasing the incidence of congenital rubella syndrome.

Much greater difficulty has been experienced in developing effective vaccines against superficial mucosal infections of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts and against those 37 diseases in which the virus remains largely cell-associated. This latter problem may well apply to the development of HIV vaccines. ACTIVE IMMUNIZATION Vaccines are preparations, administered either orally or parenterally, which stimulate a protective specific immune response in the recipient without themselves causing disease.
