Re: FDA approves Acambis smallpox vaccine
Use of vaccine currently

The vaccine consists of the virus which causes the related, yet far milder, cowpox disease; this virus is appropriately named vaccinia, from the Latin vaca which means cow. This vaccine has functional viruses in it which improves its effectiveness but, unfortunately, causes serious complications for people with impaired immune systems (for example chemotherapy and AIDS patients, and people with eczema) and is not yet considered safe for pregnant women. A woman planning on conceiving within one month should not receive the smallpox immunization until after the pregnancy. In the event of an outbreak the woman should delay pregnancy if possible. A small, yet significant, percentage of healthy individuals also suffer adverse side-effects which, in rare cases, include permanent neurological damage. Vaccines that only contain attenuated vaccinia viruses (an attenuated virus is one in which the pathogenicity has been decreased through serial passage) have been proposed but some researchers have questioned the possible effectiveness of such a vaccine. Others point out that mass vaccinations would probably not be needed to counter a bioterrorist attack if many millions of doses of the current (possibly improved) vaccine could be delivered to victims within several days of exposure (the vaccine is effective to that point). This, along with vaccinations of so-called first-responders, is the current plan of action being devised by the United States Department of Homeland Security and FEMA in the United States.

The vaccine can cause complications for those around those who are vaccinated. People who get the vaccine will shed virus particles through vesicles on their skin and possibly through their respiratory tract. Infections in close and not-so-close contacts can ensue. The current plan to vaccinate first responders has the potential to cause infection in the most vulnerable section of the population, the hospitalized ill. Family contacts are also susceptible, although they are less vulnerable because their immune systems are presumably intact. Secondary infection can cause skin disease, pulmonary disease and rarely, neurologic disease.

As of June 21, 2003, a scientific advisory panel had issued a recommendation against further vaccination of first responders because a significant number of those vaccinated suffered heart problems, notably pericarditis and myocarditis.

In May 2007, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee of the US Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously that a new live virus vaccine produced by Acambis is both safe and effective for use in persons at high risk of exposure to smallpox virus. However, due to the high rate of serious adverse effects, the vaccine will only be made available to the United States Department of Defense for the Strategic National Stockpile. [2] [3]

The main problem with developing a new, supposedly safer vaccine, is that, barring a bioterrorist attack on immunized individuals, its effectiveness cannot be tested on humans, and other animals do not naturally contract smallpox. Monkeys at USAMRIID research facilities have been infected, but tests on animals that are artificially infected with a human disease are notorious for giving false or misleading results. To demonstrate safety and effectiveness, human trials always have to confirm data obtained from animal testing.

The smallpox vaccine is also the only FDA-approved treatment for monkeypox. As with smallpox, vaccination after infection is effective if the vaccine is given before symptoms develop.

SIGA Technologies is developing a new drug that has been shown effective as a post-exposure prophylaxis in monkeys infected experimentally with human smallpox virus or with monkeypox virus. [4] [5]

TABLE 1

Contraindications to Smallpox Vaccination in Potential Vaccinees and Their Household and Sexual Contacts*

Eczema or atopic dermatitis (in the past, even if not currently active). Patients with these diseases or a history of these diseases should not be vaccinated.

Acute, chronic, or exfoliative skin conditions, including burns, impetigo, chickenpox, contact dermatitis, shingles, herpes, severe acne, Darier's disease (keratosis follicularis), and psoriasis. Until these conditions clear, patients should not be vaccinated.

Diseases or conditions that cause immunodeficiency or immunosuppression, including human immunodeficiency virus infection or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, solid organ or stem-cell transplant, generalized malignancy, leukemia, lymphoma, agammaglobulinemia, and autoimmune diseases. Patients with these diseases or conditions should not be vaccinated.

Treatments that cause immunodeficiency or immunosuppression, including radiation therapy, antimetabolites, alkylating agents, corticosteroids, chemotherapy agents, and organ transplant medications. Patients should not be vaccinated until they, or their household contacts, have been off immunosuppressive treatment for three months.

Inflammatory eye diseases, including eye surgery and subsequent use of steroid eye drops. These patients should not be vaccinated until the ocular condition is well controlled and they have not been using steroid eye drops for at least two weeks.

Pregnancy, or plans to become pregnant in the next four weeks. Abstinence or highly effective contraceptive measures should be recommended to reduce the risk of pregnancy within four weeks of vaccination.

*--There are no contraindications to vaccination of patients who have had direct exposure to smallpox.

TABLE 2

Contraindications to Smallpox Vaccination in Potential Vaccinees Only*


Previous allergic reaction to smallpox vaccine or any of the vaccine's components, including polymyxin B, streptomycin, tetracycline, neomycin, and phenol. Patients with such reactions should not be vaccinated.

Moderate or severe acute illness. Vaccination should be deferred until the illness has resolved.

Symptomatic or asymptomatic heart disease (previous myocardial infarction, angina, congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, stroke or transient ischemic attack, chest pain or shortness of breath on activity, or other heart conditions under the care of a physician) or cardiac risk factors (three or more cardiac risk factors: hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, heart disease at 50 years of age in a first-degree relative, or current smoker).

Young or old age. Smallpox vaccination is contraindicated in children younger than 12 months. The ACIP advises against nonemergency use of smallpox vaccine in patients younger than 18 years or those older than 65 years.

Breastfeeding. Smallpox vaccine should not be given to women who are breastfeeding.

Latex allergy. Patients who are allergic to latex should not be vaccinated. Note that the vaccine vial stopper contains rubber.



ACIP = Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

*--There are no contraindications to vaccination of patients who have had direct exposure to smallpox.
