Prevnar 13???? - Page 2
the men c vaccine was licensed and used in the UK in november of 1999. what year was this trial? are we even sure it was an investigational vaccine when the UK was already using it at the time that this paper was written? hence it is written as "investigational group" not the vaccine itself is investigational. like i said, it was in use elsewhere already.
|We report the results of the Kaiser Permanente trial
evaluating the efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of
the heptavalent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine
(Wyeth; PNCRM7) conducted in Northern California
between October, 1995, and August, 1998, and the
posttrial blinded efficacy follow-up through April 20,
if the men c vaccine here was not tested before the trial with pcv 7, then that would seem very strange to me. but somehow i feel like i am not getting the whole picture...either there were other safety trials that were sufficient or the men C was considered safe through its trials. and I have no idea who you could even ask on that; i am not sure its something google degree can tell me, kwim?
5$ on pcv7 page!
I might try tomorrow though. I need to figure out how I want to word the question
I've known other people who emailed them, too, and none were blown off.
Why not just email them with the MMWR link, and the quote about the investigational vaccine, and ask why a a vaccine described as "investigational" was used as the placebo?
i hope your baby is better now...i am sure the fever was from the vaccine. i only gave my first son hep B and a couple polio shots and when i did more research in depth decided to do no more. my second baby is 15 months and i gave him no shots. doctors are such liars...you can't trust them...
