    USES :

    Diphtheria Toxoid is used for the prevention, control and treatment of diphtheria. Diphtheria is caused by Corynebacteriumdiphtheria. It is associated with formation of thick mucus coating in the nose, throat and airway resulting in the difficulty in breathing, paralysis, heart failure and death. Tetanus Toxoidis used for the prevention, control and treatment of tetanus or lockjaw. Tetanus is caused by Clostridium tetani. It is characterised severe muscle spasm which results in locking of jaws. Due to lockjaw the victim cannot open the mouth or swallow. Pertusis toxoidis used for the prevention, control and treatment of pertussis or whooping cough. Pertusis is caused by Bordetella pertussis. The symptoms of pertusis are severe cough that interferes with eating, drinking, or breathing. If not treated, then it can lead to pneumonia, seizures (convulsions), brain damage, and death.

    How does the drug work?

    Diphtheria toxoid increases the production of IgG antitoxin antibodies and helps the body to fight against the disease causing bacteria. Diptheria vaccine is available in combination with tetanus and pertussis. Tetanus toxoid provides artificial active immunity against Clostridium tetani. Tetanus toxoids consist of dead or weak strands of Clostridium tetani, the disease causing bacteria. When these bacteria reach the body they activate the immune system of the human body. The immune system produces antibodies which can kill the Clostridium tetani. Therefore, it helps the human body to recognise the disease causing agent and produce the antibodies quickly against the bacteria when it invades the human body. Pertussis toxoid is a vaccine which provides protection against whooping cough. Whole-cell vaccines and acellular vaccines are the two main types of pertussis toxoids. The mechanism of action of pertussis toxoid is not well understood. However, it provides protection against whopping cough both in infants and adults.
