What is Trumenba?
Meningococcal disease is a bacterial infection that can infect your spinal cord and brain causing meningitis. Meningitis can cause serious and permanent lifelong medical issues and even death. The bacteria causing meningitis can be passed from one person to another through saliva when a person sneezes or coughs, through close personal contact, or by sharing drinks.
Trumenba is used to stop infections caused by serogroup B meningococcal bacteria. Trumenba vaccine contains four common strains of the group B meningococcal bacteria. The vaccine will not treat an infection you already have but will help you to develop immunity to prevent you from getting it.
Trumenba is recommended for use between the ages of 16 to 18 years of age but can be used for young adults and children from the age of 10 to 25 years old. The protective effects from meningitis of Trumenba will vary from person to person.
Trumenba active ingredients
Protection against meningococcal disease is mainly through the complement-mediated antibody-dependent killing of N. meningitides. The bacteria have specific proteins on their surface which help them to avoid the body’s natural defenses. The ability of the vaccine to act against the infection depends on similarities between these proteins on the bacteria and the vaccine itself, as well as the amount of the proteins on the surface of the meningococci bacteria.
Trumenba is given as an injection directly into a muscle as a series of 2 or 3 shots. Booster shots are given 1,2, and 6 months after the first shot. If you do not receive all your shots you may not be fully protected from infection. You should receive a shot if you have been exposed to an outbreak of meningococcal disease, you work in a lab and are exposed to meningococcal bacteria, you have medical problems affecting your spleen, or your spleen has been removed, you are taking a medicine called eculizumab, or you have a type of immune system disorder known as persistent complement component deficiency.
Trumenba side effects
The most common side effects caused by Trumenba include:
- Nausea, diarrhea
- Muscle or joint pain
- Tiredness, headache
- A reaction where the shot was given
In rare instances, Trumenba can cause more serious side effects. If you have an allergic reaction such as problems breathing, swelling of your face, lips and mouth, or hives, get emergency medical help.
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Trumenba against your risk of side effects.
