ProQuad is a sterile lyophilized preparation of (1) the components of M-M-R* II (Measles, Mumps and Rubella Virus Vaccine Live): Measles Virus Vaccine Live, a more attenuated line of measles virus, derived from Enders' attenuated Edmonston strain and propagated in chick embryo cell culture; Mumps Virus Vaccine Live, the Jeryl Lynn(TM) (B level) strain of mumps virus propagated in chick embryo cell culture; Rubella Virus Vaccine Live, the Wistar RA 27/3 strain of live attenuated rubella virus propagated in WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts; and (2) Varicella Virus Vaccine Live (Oka/Merck), the Oka/Merck strain of varicella-zoster virus propagated in MRC-5 cells.
PROQUAD, which reflects more than 20 years of Merck research, combines two well-established Merck vaccines - M-M-R(R)II (Measles, Mumps and Rubella Virus Vaccine Live) and VARIVAX(R) (Varicella Virus Vaccine Live (Oka/Merck)).
