Excerpt
Poliovirus is an enterovirus in the family of Picornaviridae and consists of three antigenic types, 1, 2, and 3. All three types cause paralysis and the poliomyelitis vaccine is intended to be antigenic for all of these. Poliovirus type 1 causes paralysis most often and is responsible for most epidemics in unvaccinated populations (Assaad & Ljungars-Esteves 1984, Sen, Sharma & Sarthanam 1985, Kadi et al. 1988, Khare et al. 1991). Some outbreaks due to poliovirus type 1 have been reported among unimmunized populations in regions with high vaccine coverage (Kim-Farley et al. 1984, Sutter et al. 1991, Otten et al. 1992). In contrast, the poliomyelitis cases in vaccinated populations are usually caused by types 2 and 3 (Assaad & Ljungars-Esteves 1984).
