Can reliable methods of time-controlled slow release of vaccine material be developed, ensuring both priming and booster doses at a single visit to the clinic? More eﬀective adjuvants and vaccine vehicles should be developed. Especially important are designed molecules that can ensure uptake by epithelial cells at the mucosal linings. How can a more potent mucosal response be stimulated? How can we ensure better long-term immunological memory? How can we more eﬀectively stimulate CTL response for inactivated vaccines?
Gastroenteritis. In general all cases which are severe and when there is an epidemic in progress. Mumps. In sporadic or doubtful cases, and in cases of orchitis, meningoencephalitis or pancreatitis when the clinical diagnosis of mumps is not certain. Immunity status screening for vaccination of adult or prepubertal males. Rubella. When rubella is suspected in a pregnant woman or in her family contacts. The immunity status of a woman should always be established in connection with premarital or family planning consultations and on the ﬁrst consultation in her pregnancy.
Chemists also believe that thousands of nucleoside analogues remain to be synthesized and tested as antivirals. Alternatively, these compounds may already be in existence and on the shelf as part of a completely unrelated biological screening programme. The now classic anti-herpes nucleoside analogue aciclovir was initially synthesized as an anti-cancer drug. Aciclovir is structurally related to the natural nucleoside 2’ deoxyguanosine but has a disrupted sugar ring (acyclic). 3 RELATIVELY FEW POINT MUTATIONS IN VIRAL GENES CAN LEAD TO DRUG RESISTANCE Virus Drug Specific mutations responsible for resistance Inﬂuenza A Amantadine, zanamivir and oseltamivir Herpes simplex Aciclovir HIV-1 Zidovudine and other dideoxynucleoside analogues Protease inhibitors Mutations in M2 gene (amantadine) and possibly in HA gene and NA genes (oseltamivir and zanamivir).
