What is Poliomyelitis:

What is Poliomyelitis Poliomyelitis (polio) is a highly infectious viral disease, which mainly affects young children. The virus is transmitted through contaminated food and water, and multiplies in the intestine, from where it can invade the nervous system.


POLIOMYLETIS. Involves CNS, produces serious Illness. Causes Destruction of Motor Neurons in Spinal cord. Produces FLACID PARALYSIS. India has still has many cases of Poliomyelitis.

Polio An Enterovirus:

Polio An Enterovirus Poliovirus , the causative agent of poliomyelitis, is a human enterovirus and member of the family of Picornaviridae.Poliovirus is composed of a RNA genome and a protein capsid. The genome is single-stranded positive-sense RNA genome that is about 7500 nucleotides long. The viral particle is about 300 Ångström in diameter with icosahedral symmetry.

Polio Infection.:

Polio Infection. Incubation 3 – 21 days On average 14 days Predisposing factors. Severe muscular acitivity can lead to paralysis, as it increases the blood flow May produce paralysis in the limb or bulbar region Injecting vaccines with adjuvant can predispose to paralysis Patients who underwent tonsillectomy have higher incidence as Ig G secretion is reduced Rarely oral Polio vaccine produces poliomyelitis. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 21

What is Poliomyelitis?:

What is Poliomyelitis? polio= gray matter Myelitis= inflammation of the spinal cord This disease result in the destruction of motor neurons caused by the poliovirus. Polio is causes by a virus that attacks the nerve cells of the brain & spinal cord although not all infections result in sever injuries and paralysis. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 22

When was it reported? Early cases:

When was it reported? Early cases Poliomyelitis was recorded in the late 1700’s with the first epidemic in the late 1800’s. The cases that were reported in 1979 where mild and self-limited and do not result in paralysis. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 23

Documented History of Polio:

Documented History of Polio Poliomyelitis was first recognized as a distinct condition by Jakob Heine in 1840 . Its causative agent, poliovirus, was identified in 1908 by Karl Landsteiner . [ Although major polio epidemics were unknown before the late 19th century, polio was one of the most dreaded childhood diseases of the 20th century. Polio epidemics have crippled thousands of people, mostly young children; the disease has caused paralysis and death for much of human history. Polio had existed for thousands of years quietly as an endemic pathogen until the 1880s, when major epidemics began to occur in Europe; soon after, widespread epidemics appeared in the United States . 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 24

What is Poliomyelitis:

What is Poliomyelitis Poliomyelitis (polio) is a highly infectious viral disease, which mainly affects young children. The virus is transmitted through contaminated food and water, and multiplies in the intestine, from where it can invade the nervous system. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 25

It cause paralysis?:

I t cause paralysis? Paralytic disease occurs 0.1% to 1% of those who become infected with the polio virus. Paralysis of the respiratory muscles or from cardiac arrest if the neurons in the medulla oblongata are destroyed. Patients have some or full recovery from paralysis usually apparent with proximally 6 months Physical therapy is recommended for full recovery. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 26

How is polio transmitted?:

How is polio transmitted? Poliovirus is transmitted through both oral and fecal routes with implantation and replication occurring in either the orapgaryngeal and or in the intestine of mucosa. Polio cases are most infected for 7-10 days before and after clinical symptoms begin. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 27

Pathogenesis and pathology.:

Pathogenesis and pathology . Enter through Mouth, Multiplies in Oropharynx tonsils and Intestines, Excreted in Stool. Enters the CNS from Blood. Spread along the Axons of peripheral nerves to CNS. Progress along the fibers of the lower motor neurons spinal cord or brain. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 28

Cell Binding and Entry:

Cell Binding and Entry 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 29

Pathology and Pathogenesis.:

Pathology and Pathogenesis. Destroy the Anterior horn cells of the Spinal Cord Do not Multiply in Muscles only muscles manifest with weakness and flaccid paralysis result is secondary. Occasionally produce Myocarditis, Lymphatic hyperplasia. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 30

Spinal polio:

Spinal polio Spinal polio is the most common form of paralytic poliomyelitis; it results from viral invasion of the motor neurons of the anterior horn cells, or the ventral (front) gray matter section in the spinal column, Virus invasion causes inflammation of the nerve cells, leading to damage or destruction of motor neuron ganglia. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 31

Bulbar polio :

Bulbar polio Making up about 2% of cases of paralytic polio, bulbar polio occurs when poliovirus invades and destroys nerves within the bulbar region of the brain stem . nerves weakens the muscles supplied by the cranial nerves, producing symptoms of encephalitis, 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 32

What are the symptoms?:

What are the symptoms? Many include fever, pharyngitis, headache, anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. Illness may progress to aseptic meningitis and menigoencephalitis in 1% to 4% of patients. These patients develop a higher fever, myalgia and sever headache with stiffness of the neck and back. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 33

How Polio presents:

How Polio presents Initial symptoms of polio include fever, fatigue, headache, vomiting, stiffness in the neck, and pain in the limbs. In a small proportion of cases, the disease causes paralysis, which is often permanent. Polio can only be prevented by immunization. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 34

Viral Isolation From feces - present in 80% of cases in 1 st week In 50 % till 3 rd week In 25 % till several weeks Collect the fecal sample at the earliest. Primary monkey kidney is the ideal cell line for isolation of virus Viral isolation must be interpreted with caution and clinical presentation 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 44

Laboratory Diagnosis (Serology) :

Laboratory Diagnosis ( Serology) Estimation of Antibodies Ig M A paired sample is essential . 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 45

Treating Polio cases :

Treating Polio cases There is no cure for polio. The focus of modern treatment has been on providing relief of symptoms, speeding recovery and preventing complications. Supportive measures include antibiotics to prevent infections in weakened muscles, analgesics for pain, moderate exercise and a nutritious diet. Treatment of polio often requires long-term rehabilitation, including physical therapy, braces, corrective shoes and, in some cases, orthopedic surgery 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 46

Pioneers who Discovered Vaccine 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 48

Types of Vaccinations in Use:

T ypes of Vaccinations in Use Two types of vaccine are used throughout the world to combat polio. Both types induce immunity to polio, efficiently blocking person-to-person transmission of wild poliovirus, thereby protecting both individual vaccine recipients and the wider community (so-called herd immunity) 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 49

Polio fact – A dime makes the Difference:

Polio fact – A dime makes the Difference The “march of dimes” began in 1938 a fund-raising campaign for polio. People were asked to send one dime directly to the White House to help fight the disease. In the first 3 days the White House received 230,000 dimes. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose profile is now on the dimes was himself paralyzed by polio. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 50


Vaccine Polio vaccine first appeared to be licensed in the United States in 1955. Advantages: Ease to administration Good local mucosal immunity Disadvantage: Strict cold shipping & storage requirements Multiple doses required to achieve high humeral conservation rates against all virus types 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 51

Global Eradication:

Global Eradication WHO target date - year 2000 Yet in 2008 we hav e Polio cases 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 64

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative Launch:

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative Launch In 1988, the forty-first World Health Assembly, consisting then of delegates from 166 Member States, adopted a resolution for the worldwide eradication of polio. It marked the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, spearheaded by the World Health Organization (WHO), Rotary International, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and UNICEF. This followed the certification of the eradication of smallpox in 1980, progress during the 1980s towards elimination of the poliovirus in the Americas, and Rotary International’s commitment to raise funds to protect all children from the disease. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 65

Pulse Polio Immunization:

Pulse Polio Immunization 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 66

PowerPoint Presentation:

One of the major steps in achieving the goal for zero Polio children in any state or region is the introduction of Pulse Polio immunization program. This Pulse Polio immunization programme is one of the most sophisticated plans which also got a huge success in our country regarding the targets. These introduced Pulse Polio immunization programme are also proving the best methods to eradicate this disease from its origin too. Moreover according to the scales of years, in 2000 it was measured by the general surveys as the largest effort recorded with these camps and spreading awareness through this Pulse Polio immunization program. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 67

Global Eradication.:

Global Eradication. The Indian Programme of PULSE POLIO Immunization is a part of it to eradicate Polio Recent resurgence in UP and Bihar is a threat to the desired Goal. In spite of best efforts thousands occur globally in Africa and Indian subcontinent. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 68

Live Vaccine Associated Polio:

Live Vaccine Associated Polio On few occasions type 2 and type 3 virus may mutate in the course of multiplication May lead to Vaccine associated Polio But very negligible 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 69

Role Of Immunoglobulin's in Prevention:

Role Of Immunoglobulin's in Prevention Immunoglobulin's can provide protection for a few weeks against the paralytic polio But does not prevent subclinical infection Effective if given shortly before infection No value once the clinical symptoms develop 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 70

Update on India August 2011*:

Update on India August 2011* India has not reported a single case in more than six months. The most recent case had onset of paralysis on 13 January in West Bengal (WPV1). SNIDs took place beginning 26 June in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi and parts of West Bengal and other high-risk areas. The next SIAs will be SNIDs using bivalent oral polio vaccine (bOPV) in August. India has also gone eight months without detecting any wild poliovirus from environmental sampling. The last positive environmental sample was taken from Mumbai in November, 2010 . *Global polio eradication Initiative 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 71

Polio eradication helps in Progress of the World:

Polio eradication helps in Progress of the World Once polio is eradicated, the world can celebrate the delivery of a major global public good – something that will equally benefit all people, no matter where they live. Economic modeling has established that significant financial benefits will also accrue from eradication. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 72

Where is Polio present TODAY:

Where is Polio present TODAY In 2008, only four countries in the world remain with polio-endemic, down from more than 125 in 1988. The remaining countries are Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 73

Bivalent Oral Polio:

Bivalent Oral Polio India launched Bivalent Oral Polio Vaccine in January 2010 in place of a monovalent one — which protects against a single strain. A recent scientific analysis of the BOPV found that it induced a significantly higher immune response — 30% more than other trivalent or monovalent vaccines. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 74


INDIA DECLARES A POLIO FREE NATION India , which was declared polio-free in February 2012, is perhaps the best example of how a fully funded program driven by committed leaders and dedicated workers can achieve success. India was long considered the most difficult place to end polio due to its population density, high rates of migration, poor sanitation, high birth rates, and low rates of routine immunization. 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 75


Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation SUPPORTS UNIVERSAL ERADICATION OF POLIO Polio eradication is a top priority of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As a major supporter of the GPEI, we contribute technical and financial resources to our GPEI partners to accelerate efforts to eradicate polio. Many of these strategies are proven, such as targeted vaccination campaigns, community mobilization, and stronger routine immunization efforts 7/3/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 76
