The results of this study revealed that, as expected, adverse events were more common in the measles-DTP-oral polio vaccine group. This is the first randomized trial of the non-specific effects of DTP and supports that these effects may be sex-differential and of clinical and weight/height measurement importance.  Combined vaccination with DTP plus measles plus oral polio vaccine may be detrimental for girls.  Their symptoms included diarrhea, febrile illness with rash and increased hospitalizations.
