Rapid Communication-- Polio Vaccine Coverage In The Acute Flaccid Paralysis (Afp) Cases In Romania



Rapid Communication-- Polio Vaccine Coverage In The Acute Flaccid Paralysis (Afp) Cases In Romania



Roumanian Archives of Microbiology and Immunology 74(1-2): 65-67



Poliovirus (PV), a member of the Enterovirus genus, is the etiological agent of poliomyelitis. A study carried out between 2013-2014 on 30 serum samples from acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) cases, showed a protective antibody level of 90% against poliovirus Sabin strains type 1 and type 2 and of 88% against type 3. No PV strains were isolated from 2009 to 2015 in Romania. Maintaining a high vaccine coverage level against polio is mandatory until global polio eradication, especially as the risk of polio importation remains elevated in Romania.
