Poliomyelitis(Polio) in Children What is Poliomyelitis?
Polio(Poliomyelitis) What is polio?
person's early life, such as childhood Poliomyelitis.
There are three serotypes of poliovirus, each of which causes Poliomyelitis.
Also, the clinical picture of Poliomyelitis is characterized by severity, a light, moderate and severe course.
To this end, in most countries of the world, Poliomyelitis vaccination is included in the mandatory vaccination calendar.
Following the widespread use of
poliovirus vaccine in the mid-1950s, the incidence of Poliomyelitis declined dramatically in many industrialized countries.
Poliomyelitis was first recognized as a distinct condition
by Jakob Heine in 1840. Its causative agent, poliovirus, was identified in 1908 by Karl Landsteiner.
And while West Nile fever typically affects older, immune-compromised individuals,
a newly identified condition called West Nile Poliomyelitis can hit healthy adults in their 30s and 40s.
World Polio Day was first observed a decade ago by Rotary International
established to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against Poliomyelitis.
Also known as‘Poliomyelitis' in medical terms, it
is a disease caused by the deadly‘Poliovirus' usually affecting children under 5 years of age, for this reason it is also known as‘Infantile Paralysis'.

For asymptomatic flow, there is a complete absence of any symptoms of Poliomyelitis in the presence of a virus in the body,
which can be confirmed only by laboratory methods of investigation.
A little known fact about Bill Cullen(the guy who landed the game show Price is Right after Van Dyke turned it down)
is that he was severely crippled due to a bout with Poliomyelitis, a. k. a.
To prevent the development of Poliomyelitis vaccination is used, which is
carried out with the help of live attenuated viruses- they can not cause the development of the disease, but cause a specific immune response of the body with the formation of long-term stable immunity.
This is believed to be a rare event,
but outbreaks of vaccine-associated paralytic Poliomyelitis(VAPP), caused by a circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus(cVDPV),
have been reported, and tend to occur in areas of low coverage by OPV, presumably because the OPV is itself protective against the related outbreak strain.
