1.

Tetanus

A disease caused by tetanospasmin, a powerful protein toxin produced by CLOSTRIDIUM TETANI. Tetanus usually occurs after an acute injury, such as a puncture wound or laceration. Generalized tetanus, the most common form, is characterized by tetanic muscular contractions and hyperreflexia. Localized tetanus presents itself as a mild condition with manifestations restricted to muscles near the wound. It may progress to the generalized form. [from MeSH]

Disease or Syndrome
2.

Toxoid

Preparations of pathogenic organisms or their derivatives made nontoxic and intended for active immunologic prophylaxis. They include deactivated toxins. Anatoxin toxoids are distinct from anatoxins that are TROPANES found in CYANOBACTERIA. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
21223
Concept ID:
C0040555
Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
3.

Pertussis vaccine

A suspension of killed Bordetella pertussis organisms, used for immunization against pertussis (WHOOPING COUGH). It is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (DTP). There is an acellular pertussis vaccine prepared from the purified antigenic components of Bordetella pertussis, which causes fewer adverse reactions than whole-cell vaccine and, like the whole-cell vaccine, is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids. (From Dorland, 28th ed) [from MeSH]

Concept ID:
C0031237
Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
4.

Diphtheria

A Gram-positive bacterial infection caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae. It usually involves the oral cavity, pharynx, and nasal cavity. Patients develop pseudomembranes in the affected areas and manifest signs and symptoms of an upper respiratory infection. The diphtheria toxin may cause myocarditis, polyneuritis, and other systemic effects. [from NCI]

6.

Vaccine

Preparations containing substances with antigenic properties administered to activate the immune system, thereby inducing an immune response. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C0042210
Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
7.

Pertussis

A contagious bacterial respiratory infection caused by Bordetella pertussis. It is characterized by severe and uncontrollable cough, resulting in a whooping sound during breathing following the cough. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C0043167
Disease or Syndrome
8.

Diphtheria + tetanus vaccine

A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
