People long ago felt the pox lesions associated with VZV infection looked like chick peas placed upon the skin. The Latin word for chick peas is cicer which is the original word that chicken pox got its name. Chicken pox has nothing to do with chickens, but the red bumps on a body were once thought to look like the vegetable called chick peas. Hence the name chicken pox.

Other Information

Quality Assurance
Each antigen lot is tested for potency using ELISA, and compared to a reference antigen. This ensures the amount of viral protein in each batch is consistent. The total protein concentration reported includes both viral and non-viral proteins, with the ratio dependent on the purity of the antigen.
