Prevnar Drug Description
Prevnar®
Pneumococcal 7-valent Conjugate Vaccine (Diphtheria CRM197 Protein)
FOR PEDIATRIC USE ONLY
For Intramuscular Injection Only
DRUG DESCRIPTION



What are the possible side effects of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) (Prevnar)?

Your child should not receive a booster vaccine if he or she had a life-threatening allergic reaction after the first shot.
Keep track of any and all side effects your child has after receiving this vaccine. When the child receives a booster dose, you will need to tell the doctor if the previous shots caused any side effects.
Becoming infected with pneumococcal disease (such as pneumonia or meningitis) is much more dangerous to your child's health than receiving the vaccine...

Pneumococcal 7-valent Conjugate Vaccine (Diphtheria CRM197 Protein),
Prevnar®, is a sterile solution of saccharides of the capsular antigens
of Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 4, 6B, 9V, 14, 18C, 19F, and 23F
individually conjugated to diphtheria CRM197 protein. Each serotype
is grown in soy peptone broth. The individual polysaccharides are purified through
centrifugation, precipitation, ultrafiltration, and column chromatography. The
polysaccharides are chemically activated to make saccharides which are directly
conjugated to the protein carrier CRM197 to form the glycoconjugate.
This is effected by reductive amination. CRM197 is a nontoxic variant
of diphtheria toxin isolated from cultures of Corynebacterium diphtheriae
strain C7 (β197) grown in a casamino acids and yeast extract-based medium.
CRM197 is purified through ultrafiltration, ammonium sulfate precipitation,
and ion-exchange chromatography. The individual glycoconjugates are purified
by ultrafiltration and column chromatography and are analyzed for saccharide
to protein ratios, molecular size, free saccharide, and free protein.
The individual glycoconjugates are compounded to formulate the vaccine, Prevnar®. Potency of the formulated vaccine is determined by quantification of each of the saccharide antigens, and by the saccharide to protein ratios in the individual glycoconjugates.
Prevnar® is manufactured as a liquid preparation. Each 0.5 mL dose is formulated to contain: 2 µg of each saccharide for serotypes 4, 9V, 14, 18C, 19F, and 23F, and 4 µg of serotype 6B per dose (16 µg total saccharide); approximately 20 µg of CRM197 carrier protein; and 0.125 mg of aluminum per 0.5 mL dose as aluminum phosphate adjuvant.
After shaking, the vaccine is a homogeneous, white suspension.Last reviewed on RxList: 2/4/2009
