Practical Applications of Immunology


Vaccine history l.jpg
Vaccine History

  • Variolation: Inoculation of smallpox into skin (18th century)

  • Vaccination: Inoculation of cowpox into skin

  • Herd immunity results when most of a population is immune to a disease.


Principal vaccines used in the united states to prevent bacterial diseases in humans l.jpg
Principal Vaccines Used in the United States to Prevent Bacterial Diseases in Humans

  • DtaP

    • Diphtheria: Purified diphtheria toxoid

    • Pertussis: Acellular fragments of B. pertussis

    • Tetanus: Purified tetanus toxoid

  • Meningococcal meningitis: Purified polysaccharide from N. meningitidis

  • Haemophilus influenzae type b meningitis: Polysaccharides conjugated with protein

  • Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine: S. pneumoniae antigens conjugated with protein


Principal vaccines used in the united states to prevent viral diseases in humans l.jpg
Principal Vaccines Used in the United States to Prevent Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Smallpox: Live vaccinia virus

  • Poliomyelitis: Inactivated virus

  • Rabies: Inactivated virus

  • Hepatitis A: Inactivated virus

  • Influenza: Inactivated or attenuated virus

  • Measles: Attenuated virus

  • Mumps: Attenuated virus

  • Rubella: Attenuated virus

  • Chickenpox: Attenuated virus

  • Hepatitis B: Antigenic fragments (recombinant vaccine)


Precipitation reactions l.jpg
Precipitation Reactions Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Involve soluble antigens with antibodies

Figure 18.3


Agglutination reactions l.jpg
Agglutination Reactions Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Involve particulate antigens and antibodies

  • Antigens may be:

  • On a cell (direct agglutination)

  • Attached to latex spheres (indirect or passive agglutination)

Figure 18.4


Antibody titer l.jpg
Antibody Titer Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Is the concentration of antibodies against a particular antigen

Hemagglutination l.jpg
Hemagglutination Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Hemagglutination involves agglutination of RBCs.

  • Viral hemagglutination inhibition tests for antibodies by the antibodies' ability to prevent viruses from agglutinating RBCs.

Neutralization reactions l.jpg
Neutralization Reactions Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Eliminate the harmful effect of a virus or exotoxin

Serological tests l.jpg
Serological Tests Viral Diseases in Humans

Serological tests17 l.jpg
Serological Tests Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Direct tests detect antigens (from patient sample)

  • Indirect tests detect antibodies (in patient's serum)


Serological tests18 l.jpg
Serological Tests Viral Diseases in Humans

  • Agglutination: Particulate antigens

  • Hemagglutination: Agglutination of RBCs

  • Precipitation: Soluble antigens

  • Fluorescent-antibody technique: Antibodies linked to fluorescent dye

  • Complement fixation: RBCs are indicator

  • Neutralization: Inactivates toxin or virus

  • ELISA: Peroxidase enzyme is the indicator
