Experimental vaccine for shingles is effective

Researchers have discovered a newer form of chicken pox vaccine to// effectively control the painful condition called shingles.

Shingles (also known as herpes zoster) is the condition that gets symptoms of rashes or blisters on the skin, along with sensations of burning pain, tingling, and numbness on the area. There may be fever with chills, headache or upset stomach. The infection is somewhat like chicken pox and is caused by the same virus varicella-zoster. Anyone who had chicken pox once is at a risk. Scientists say that the chicken pox virus moves into the nervous system after the attack, and reactivates as shingles.

The new vaccine called zoster vaccine is a more potent version of the chicken pox vaccine that’s available for the children. This vaccine contains live and weak form of the varicella-zoster virus that causes chicken pox. The vaccine had been able to prevent the occurrence of shingles for half the people who received it, and reduced significantly the severity and complications of the disease in most of the vaccinated people.

Shingles is a condition that keeps on affecting people and affects the elderly people more severely. The new vaccine for adults will now be able to bring relief to all people who have been suffering from the disease.

The research will be published in the new edition of New England Journal of Medicine.
