1.

Vaccines

A Type of medicine that creates an immune protection without the recipient experiencing the disease.  [from HL7]

MedGen UID:
52963
Concept ID:
C0042210
Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
2.

Viral vaccine

Any vaccine preparation composed of a live, attenuated, inactivated, killed or recombinant virus. Administration of a viral vaccine is to provide prophylaxis against viral disease or used as a vehicle to treat cancers. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
22655
Concept ID:
C0042742
Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
3.

Vaccinia

The cutaneous and occasional systemic reactions associated with vaccination using smallpox (variola) vaccine. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
52964
Concept ID:
C0042214
Disease or Syndrome

Fever

A fever is a body temperature that is higher than normal. It is not an illness. It is part of your body's defense against infection. Most bacteria and viruses that cause infections do well at the body's normal temperature (98.6 F). A slight fever can make it harder for them to survive. Fever also activates your body's immune system. Infections cause most fevers. There can be many other causes, including. - Medicines. - Heat exhaustion. - Cancers. - Autoimmune diseases. Treatment depends on the cause of your fever. Your health care provider may recommend using over-the-counter medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to lower a very high fever. Adults can also take aspirin, but children with fevers should not take aspirin. It is also important to drink enough liquids to prevent dehydration.  [from MedlinePlus]

Human immunodeficiency virus

MedGen UID:

Disease or Syndrome
6.

Spelters fever

MedGen UID:
538578
Concept ID:
C0264454
Disease or Syndrome
7.

Viral Vector

A viral gene transduction agent used to transfer genes or genetic materials, such as retroviruses and adenoviruses. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
274399
Concept ID:
C1520007
Pharmacologic Substance
8.

Vaccines, DNA

Recombinant DNA vectors encoding antigens administered for the prevention or treatment of disease. The host cells take up the DNA, express the antigen, and present it to the immune system in a manner similar to that which would occur during natural infection. This induces humoral and cellular immune responses against the encoded antigens. The vector is called naked DNA because there is no need for complex formulations or delivery agents; the plasmid is injected in saline or other buffers. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
138230
Concept ID:
C0376613
Immunologic Factor; Nucleic Acid, Nucleoside, or Nucleotide; Pharmacologic Substance

Viral hemorrhagic fever

Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) are a group of illnesses caused by four families of viruses. These include the Ebola and Marburg, Lassa fever, and yellow fever viruses. VHFs have common features: they affect many organs, they damage the blood vessels, and they affect the body's ability to regulate itself. Some VHFs cause mild disease, but some, like Ebola or Marburg, cause severe disease and death. VHFs are found around the world. Specific diseases are usually limited to areas where the animals that carry them live. For example, Lassa fever is limited to rural areas of West Africa where rats and mice carry the virus. The risk for travelers is low, but you should avoid visiting areas where there are disease outbreaks. Because there are no effective treatments for some of these viral infections, there is concern about their use in bioterrorism. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  [from MedlinePlus]

Immunodeficiency

A deficiency of immune response or a disorder characterized by deficient immune response. [from NCI_FDA]

MedGen UID:
7034
Concept ID:
C0021051
Disease or Syndrome
11.

Vaccines, Synthetic

Small synthetic peptides that mimic surface antigens of pathogens and are immunogenic, or vaccines manufactured with the aid of recombinant DNA techniques. The latter vaccines may also be whole viruses whose nucleic acids have been modified. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
22601
Concept ID:
C0042213
Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
12.

Artificial antigen

small synthetic peptides that mimic surface antigens of pathogens and are immunogenic. [from CRISP]

MedGen UID:
11692
Concept ID:
C0039115
Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
13.

Vaccines, Recombinant

MedGen UID:
11144
Concept ID:
C0034862
Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
14.

Biological Products

Complex pharmaceutical substances, preparations, or agents of organic origin, usually obtained by biological methods or assay. They are used especially in diagnosis and treatment of disease (as vaccines or pollen extracts). Biological products are differentiated from BIOLOGICAL FACTORS in that the latter are compounds with biological or physiological activity made by living organisms. (From Webster's 3d ed) [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
