INFANRIX HEXA (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Hib, Polio and Hepatitis B vaccine)

Diphtheria Toxoid

Tetanus Toxoid

Pertussis Toxoid

Filamentous Haemagglutinin (FHA) – This is an adherent that helps pertussis bacterium to the host’s cells.

Pertactin – Also an adherent and helps pertussis to attach itself to respiratory cells.

Three strains of polio virus – Mahoney strain, MEF-1 strain, Saukett strain).

Haemophilus influenzae type b polysaccharide (hib bacterium).

Polyribosylribitol phosphate –  This is a capsule of the hib bacterium that suppresses the activity of phagocytes. Phagocytes are cells that absorb and neutralise bacteria. and

Aluminium hydroxide.

Aluminium phosphate.

Yeast Cells.

Propagated in VERO cells – vero cells are monkey kidney tissue –

The vaccine may contain traces of formaldehyde, neomycin and polymyxin which are used during the manufacturing process. Formaldehyde is a flammable chemical that is the main component of embalming fluid. It also used in household products and vaccines. It ‘kills’ (attenuates) the viruses and bacteria in inactivated vaccines. It is a carcinogen and has been implicated in causing nasal cancer and leukaemia.

Sodium chloride

Succinic acid

Polysorbate 80 (also called tween 80 and squalene oil) – polysorbate 80 is an emulsifier that has been implicated in infertility in rats and it is used in sterilant vaccines for animals. One patent for a fertility impairing animal vaccine describes squalene oil as the perfect ingredient for sterilization. It is also used in anti-depressant medication because it carries drugs beyond the blood brain barrier to act upon the brain.;jsessionid=D79B79962B598303993482362C10267B.wapp1nA?docId=WO1999034825&recNum=1&maxRec=&office=&prevFilter=&sortOption=&queryString=&tab=PCTDescription
