MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2022 (HealthDay News) — The measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccines PRIORIX and MMR II are interchangeable, according to a study published in the November 18 issue of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. is. Weekly reports of morbidity and mortality.

Dr. Elisabeth Krow-Lucal of the CDC in Atlanta and colleagues made recommendations specific to PRIORIX, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved MMR vaccine approved June 6, 2022 in people 12 months and older. Offers. PRIORIX results were compared with those of her MMR II, the only MMR vaccine since 1978.

Four randomized controlled clinical trials compared the safety profiles of 1,960 people who received 1 or 2 doses of PRIORIX and 933 people who received 1 or 2 doses of MMR II. The researchers found that the frequency of vaccine-related serious adverse events was similar between groups, ranging from 0.0% to 0.2% in patients receiving PRIORIX and 0.0% to 0.3% in patients receiving MMR II. I discovered that Based on two of his studies conducted in the UK, the difference in febrile seizure rates between the two vaccines was found to be non-significant. Using data from 13 randomized controlled trials assessing short-term humoral immunity, all studies achieved threshold seroresponsiveness to all three antigens. Given the similarities in vaccine efficacy as well as safety and immunogenicity, PRIORIX and MMR II are considered fully compatible. PRIORIX or MMR II vaccines can be administered in any situation where an MMR-containing vaccine is required.
