Maternal Immunization Book Review:

Immunization during pregnancy with currently recommended vaccines prevents infection in the mother, the unborn fetus, and the young infant, and there is an increasing focus from different stakeholders to use this approach for other infections of importance to protect these vulnerable groups. The aim of this Maternal Immunization book is to provide a contemporary overview of vaccines used in pregnancy (and the lactation period), with emphasis on aspects of importance for the target groups, namely, rationale for the use of vaccines in pregnancy, safety, immunogenicity (immunology), timing to vaccinate, repeat doses, protective effects in the mother, fetus, and infant, and public acceptance and implementation, of existing and of future vaccines. Provides an overview of a quickly evolving topic. This will benefit the reader who wishes to rapidly become informed and up-to-date with new developments in this field Suitable to a broad audience: scientific researchers, obstetricians, gynecologists, neonatologists, vaccinators, pediatricians, students, and industry. Maternal vaccination impacts a wide range of specialists Allows health care professionals/researchers to gain insight into other aspects of vaccination in pregnancy outside of their specialism Is coauthored by specialists from multiple disciplines, providing a diverse view of the subject, increasing its interest and appeal Creates awareness of the current developments in this area of medicine and of the potential of maternal vaccination to improve the health of mothers and infants worldwide

Disease Control Priorities Third Edition Volume 2 Book Review:

The evaluation of reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) by the Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition (DCP3) focuses on maternal conditions, childhood illness, and malnutrition. Specifically, the chapters address acute illness and undernutrition in children, principally under age 5. It also covers maternal mortality, morbidity, stillbirth, and influences to pregnancy and pre-pregnancy. Volume 3 focuses on developments since the publication of DCP2 and will also include the transition to older childhood, in particular, the overlap and commonality with the child development volume. The DCP3 evaluation of these conditions produced three key findings: 1. There is significant difficulty in measuring the burden of key conditions such as unintended pregnancy, unsafe abortion, nonsexually transmitted infections, infertility, and violence against women. 2. Investments in the continuum of care can have significant returns for improved and equitable access, health, poverty, and health systems. 3. There is a large difference in how RMNCH conditions affect different income groups; investments in RMNCH can lessen the disparity in terms of both health and financial risk.

Immunization Safety Review Book Review:

The Immunization Safety Review Committee was established by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to evaluate the evidence on possible causal associations between immunizations and certain adverse outcomes, and to then present conclusions and recommendations. The committee's mandate also includes assessing the broader societal significance of these immunization safety issues. While all the committee members share the view that immunization is generally beneficial, none of them has a vested interest in the specific immunization safety issues that come before the group. The committee reviews three immunization safety review topics each year, addressing each one at a time. In this fifth report in a series, the committee examines the hypothesis that exposure to polio vaccine contaminated with simian virus 40 (SV40), a virus that causes inapparent infection in some monkeys, can cause certain types of cancer.

KNOWLEDGE ATTITUDE AND PRACTICE ON MATERNAL IMMUNIZATION WITH TETANUS TOXOID REDUCED DIPHTHERIA TOXOID ACELLULAR PERTUSSIS Tdap AMONG PREGNANT WOMEN IN KOREA Book Review:

Knowledge, attitude and practice on maternal immunization with tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, acellular pertussis (Tdap) among pregnant women in KoreaBackgroundIn South Korea, the number of cases of pertussis reported has increased in recent years. Despite effectiveness of maternal tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccination, immunization rates of Tdap during pregnancy remain quite low. We assessed the knowledge, attitude and practice on maternal Tdap vaccination among pregnant women.MethodsThis study was a cross-sectional survey of pregnant women who visited obstetrics and gynecologic units in the Gyeonggi-do province of Korea. Individual questionnaires were administered to assess knowledge, attitude and practice on maternal immunization with Tdap.ResultsThe questionnaires was completed by 184 pregnant women; 158 (86%) had not received information from doctors about pertussis and Tdap, and 166 (90%) did not know the need for Tdap vaccination. Only 7% of pregnant women unlikely to receive Tdap vaccine during current pregnancy answered 3 or more of the 5 knowledge-based questions correctly (Table 1, Fig. 1). By logistic regression analysis, recommendation by doctor (OR 236.2), belief that the vaccine is effective (OR 40.21), and belief that the vaccine is safe (OR 19.83) were significantly important factors to respondentsu2019 intention to be vaccinated (Table 2). ConclusionsMost pregnant women seem to be neither recommended nor adequately informed about Tdap vaccination. Information given by health care professionals is very important to increase Tdap coverage among pregnant women.

Women and Health Research Book Review:

In the nineteenth century some scientists argued that women should not be educated because thinking would use energy needed by the uterus for reproduction. The proof? Educated women had a lower birth rate. Today's researchers can only shake their heads at such reasoning. Yet professional journals and the popular press are increasingly criticizing medical research for ignoring women's health issues. Women and Health Research examines the facts behind the public's perceptions about women participating as subjects in medical research. With the goal of increasing researchers' awareness of this important topic, the book explores issues related to maintaining justice (in its ethical sense) in clinical studies. Leading experts present general principles for the ethical conduct of research on women--principles that are especially important in the light of recent changes in federal policy on the inclusion of women in clinical research. Women and Health Research documents the historical shift from a paternalistic approach by researchers toward women and a disproportionate reliance on certain groups for research to one that emphasizes proper access for women as subjects in clinical studies in order to ensure that women receive the benefits of research. The book addresses present-day challenges to equity in four areas: Scientific--Do practical aspects of scientific research work at cross-purposes to gender equity? Focusing on drug trials, the authors identify rationales for excluding people from research based on demographics. Social and Ethical--The authors offer compelling discussions on subjectivity in science, the evidence for male bias, and issues related to race and ethnicity, as well as the recruitment, retention, and protection of research participants. Legal--Women and Health Research reviews federal research policies that affect the inclusion of women and evaluates the basis for researchers' fears about liability, citing court cases. Risk--The authors focus on risks to reproduction and offspring in clinical drug trials, exploring how risks can be identified for study participants, who should make the assessment of risk and benefit for participation in a clinical study, and how legal implications could be addressed. This landmark study will be of immediate use to the research community, policymakers, women's health advocates, attorneys, and individuals.

Home based Maternal Records Book Review:

A comprehensive guide to all aspects of the development, adaptation, and use of home-based maternal records as an exciting new tool for reducing maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Home-based maternal records, which are retained by the woman and serve as her "passport" to appropriate health care, are simple cards designed to facilitate the easy recording and interpretation of comprehensive information on the health status of a woman before her first pregnancy, during the current pregnancy, delivery, postpartum and neonatal periods, and during two subsequent pregnancies. The cards can also be used to record information during the periods between pregnancies and on the woman's breast-feeding, family planning, and tetanus toxoid immunization status. Though simple in concept and design, the cards have demonstrated their effectiveness as a tool for the early detection of risk factors, the promotion of timely referral, the monitoring of women's health for periods of up to 10 years, and the education of women about health, nutrition, and family planning. Home-based maternal records have also shown their potential to encourage more appropriate referrals and better utilization of health services, to promote self-diagnosis and self-care, to foster greater community involvement, and to facilitate the collection of health information. Designed to help program managers and administrators introduce and use home-based maternal records to the greatest effect, the book draws on experiences and lessons learned during the extensive field testing of home-based. While a WHO prototype record is presented as a model, emphasis is placed on the best ways to adapt this prototype to local conditions, test its effectiveness, pinpoint problems, and find solutions, even when resources are scarce and populations largely illiterate.
