During a lecture on Tuesday, former Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Julie Gerberding discussed the challenge of developing vaccines to deal with the growing number of new infectious diseases that have limited antimicrobial treatments.
Gerberding began with an overview of the problems the CDC and vaccine companies face in properly distributing vaccines around the world.
The University has investigated at least one serious medical case as a potential adverse reaction to the meningitis vaccine, although a link was deemed unlikely in that case.
An undergraduate student was sent to the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro less than 24 hours after receiving the vaccine with a condition ofrhabdomyolysis, an acute breakdown of muscle tissue that causes muscle fiber and protein to be transferred into the bloodstream, risking severe kidney damage.
Although the vaccine may have had a temporal correlation with the student getting rhabdomyolysis, specialists at University Health Services and the UMCPP said they do not believe the vaccine directly caused the condition.
There has been no past correlation between rhabdomyolysis and the meningitis vaccine in Europe and Australia, where the vaccine was approved for use.
Dr. Peter Johnsen, director of medical services at UHS, said that two specialists who observed the case both determined that the student’s illness was not related to the meningitis vaccine.
“We posed that question to specialists in the hospital and another specialist, and in both cases, they felt that it was not likely to be related,” Johnsen said.
