Outbreaks of mumps are soaring in England and Wales, with a total of 15,754 notified cases in the first 10 weeks of the year compared with an annual total of 16,436 notifications for all of 2004.

Universities set up vaccination sessions and many asked students who caught mumps to go home until they were no longer infectious. Others asked students to seek vaccination before starting term.

A large clinical trial of a novel HIV vaccine has begun enrolling volunteers at sites in North America, South America, the Caribbean and Australia. Organizers are seeking 1,500 participants.

The trial is co-funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. Inc. Merck developed the experimental vaccine to stimulate HIV-specific cellular immunity, which prompts the body to produce T cells that kill HIV-infected cells. In previous smaller trials, this vaccine was found to be safe and to induce cellular immune responses against HIV in more than half of volunteers.

“This new study is the first time we have used such a large sample of people to test whether a vaccine that stimulates cellular immunity alone either blocks HIV infection, decreases the level of HIV early in infection or both,” says Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of NIAID.

The rate of polio infection in children more than doubled in 2003 despite official assurances that they are addressing the problem

Despite a growing polio epidemic in Africa, health ministers from the most seriously affected countries say they can stop its spread by the end of this year by intensifying efforts to immunize tens of millions of children. At a meeting of the WHO in Geneva on Thursday, the ministers said they expected to repeat the success of large-scale immunization programs that nearly eliminated polio from Africa by 2003.

But last year, the number of African children paralyzed by polio more than doubled, to 1,037 from 447 in 2003, as the virus began spreading again in five countries that had been free of polio: Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Chad, Ivory Coast and Sudan. Three other countries -- Egypt, Niger and Nigeria -- have never stopped transmission of polio. The disease now threatens countries on the Horn of Africa, Congo and the Arabian Peninsula, said Dr. David Heymann, the official in charge of the WHO's polio eradication program. A year ago, polio transmission was confined to Egypt, Niger and Nigeria. "The resurgence of polio in Africa is costing an extra US$150 million for the immunization programs." -- David Heymann,WHO

The Department of Health is considering introducing a new jab to protect babies against bacterial meningitis, septicaemia and pneumonia.

Babies already receive two jabs containing six vaccinations by the age of four months. Officials have agreed to the new vaccine in principle - but will consult parents before taking a final decision. In the wake of the controversy over MMR, they want to ensure a new vaccine has public support.

A doctor has been jailed for nine months for faking blood tests to trick parents into believing that the separate inoculations he gave their children for measles, mumps and rubella were effective.

A 15-year-old Asheville boy who fainted after receiving a hepatitis B vaccine died because of a brain injury associated with the fall and not an allergic reaction. That's according to a Buncombe County medical examiner.

Kennie Ray Nelson Jr. died shortly after receiving the vaccine, which led his family to question whether he had experienced a reaction to it. The vaccine was the final dose in a series of three, and Nelson had experienced no previous complications.
