Vaccine therapy is a type of treatment that uses a substance or group of substances to stimulate the immune system to destroy a tumor or infectious microorganisms such as bacteria or viruses Cancer vaccines. Cancer is a group of fatal diseases that involves abnormal cell.   Following the testing of therapeutic sera, the quantified evaluation of a pharmaceutical's efficacy became a key feature of medicine in the twentieth century. The case studies in this volume offer comparisons across Europe, from the diphtheria antitoxin in the late s to the introduction of the Salk polio vaccine in the s.

  Methods. Using a validated assay to measure opsonic phagocytosis of Plasmodium falciparum merozoites, we investigated the potential role of this functional activity in human immunity against clinical episodes of malaria in two independent cohorts (n = and n = ) experiencing differing levels of malaria transmission and evaluated its potential as a correlate of protection. When later the opsonic index was shown to be an unreliable guide, and since the immunologists had no better method for determining immune body formation, it was necessary in case vaccine therapy was to be continued that the clinician draw his own conclusions regarding the value of this method of treatment.

As a result of the development of bacteriology, serum therapy was established, and finally Wright—less than a decade ago—inaugurated a method of treating infectious diseases by bacterial vaccines. When this new treatment was introduced, special skill was considered necessary on the part of those who used it: the worker had to be trained to. The replication-competent smallpox vaccines (i.e., ACAM and APSV) can protect people from getting sick or make the disease less severe if they receive the vaccine either before or within a week of coming in contact with smallpox virus. If you get the vaccine: Before contact with the virus, the vaccine can protect you from getting sick.

So-called vaccine therapy was introduced by Sir Almroth Edward Wright at the beginning of the 20th century (between and ).

At that time, he was notable for developing a system of antityphoid fever inoculations and a method of measuring protective substances (opsonins) in human blood [17].

His first. The body’s immune system responds to vaccines as if they contain an actual pathogen, even though the vaccine itself is not capable of causing disease.
