Abstract:

Several vaccines have been reported in the literature as having the potential of interferon induction 1-4. In view of the fact that no other safe and effective interferon inducers are currently available, these vaccines remain the only readily available agents which could be employed for possible prophylactic or therapeutic interferon induction in man. The purpose of this study was to attempt to extend the spectrum of vaccines with known interferon inducing material. Two vaccines were evaluated. One was a commercially available live, oral poliomyelitis vaccine, type 2, and the other a new live, attenuated influenza AEngland4272 H3N2 vaccine which is currently undergoing field trials.
