Findings in a recent study have proposed that a sound and proper sleep is necessary for vaccines even to provide with a pronounced effect.
Aric Prather, lead author of the study, asserted that as lifestyle is changing, majority of the Americans are spending most of their time working. They are leading a very hectic schedule. As a result, most of them are not able to sleep properly.
However, in order to administer whether there was any link between sleep duration and efficiency with that of protection against an infection, researchers analyzed as to what was body’s antibody response against hepatitis B vaccinations, those given to adults who were experiencing good health.
The study conducted at University of Pittsburgh included total of 125 people, out of which 70 were women and 55 were men, aged between 40 and 60 years.
They participants were given a full course of the vaccination, first and second were given after one month and the booster dose after six months. Antibody response was administered after second and third vaccine.
The participants also mentioned about their sleep duration. People who slept for less than six hours were less benefitted by the vaccine, in comparison to those who slept for more than seven hours.
