Developing the Measles Vaccine
Developing the Measles Vaccine: In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the attenuated measles virus vaccine, Dr. Samuel L. Katz gave a presentation about the process of developing the vaccine and distributing it globally. The presentation took place at the 2013 AAP National Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida, at the "Meet the Red Book Committee" educational session. The vaccine has been administered worldwide to more than 1 billion children, reducing the annual mortality from what the World Health Organization estimated was about 6 million children per year to a low of 158,000 in 2011. Dr. Katz details the process he worked on with Dr. John F. Enders to develop the vaccine, the efforts to administer the vaccine on a massive scale, as well as the continued efforts to eradicate measles worldwide.
