Tetanus Toxoid Vaccine (TE Anatoxal Berna) for Liver Cirrhosis
Definition: Tetanus vaccine is a vaccine used against Clostridium tetani, the agent that causes tetanus. The vaccine is composed of tetanus toxoid, tetanus toxin inactivated with formaldehyde, which is immunogenic but not pathogenic. It is a component of the DPT vaccine. The tetanus vaccine is required again after 10 years if the individual is exposed to possible infection. Cirrhosis is a consequence of chronic liver disease characterized by replacement of liver tissue by fibrosis, scar tissue and regenerative nodules (lumps that occur as a result of a process in which damaged tissue is regenerated), leading to loss of liver function. Cirrhosis is most commonly caused by alcoholism, hepatitis B and C, and fatty liver disease, but has many other possible causes. Some cases are idiopathic, i.e. , of unknown cause.
