Drug Precautions ::

There are only limited data on safety and immunogenicity of the vaccine in children aged 1 to 2 years and protective efficacy has not been studied. Therefore, this is not recommended to be used in children less than 2 years of age. There are only very limited data on protective efficacy of the vaccine in subjects aged 65 years and more. No clinical data on protective efficacy of this vaccine against cholera after administration of booster doses are available. This vaccine confers protection specific to Vibrio cholerae serogroup O1. Immunisation does not protect against V. cholerae serogroup O139 or other species of Vibrio. In subjects infected with HIV, limited data are available on immunogenicity and safety of the vaccine. Vaccine protective efficacy has not been studied. Immunisation of HIV infected subjects could result in transient increases of viral load. Dukoral may not induce protective antibody levels in subjects with advanced HIV disease. Formaldehyde is used during the manufacturing process and trace amounts may be present in the final product. Caution should be taken in subjects with known hypersensitivity to formaldehyde. The vaccine does not provide complete protection and it is important to adhere to standard protective measures to avoid cholera.
