Varicella can be prevented by vaccination using the live-attenuated Oka vaccine strain of varicella zoster virus (VZV). Only mild breakthrough disease has been reported in seronegative vaccinees when exposed to the wild-type virus. The latent varicella vaccine virus has rarely caused herpes zoster in childhood and adolescence. We report a healthy 2-year-old(More)
BACKGROUND Herpes zoster can be caused by endogenous reactivation of both wild-type virus or vaccine varicella-zoster virus (VZV) becoming latent within sensory ganglia after natural primary infection or varicella vaccination. OBJECTIVES To demonstrate molecular biological methods for reliable discrimination between wild-type VZV and vaccine strain Oka by(More)
UNLABELLED Subcutaneous infiltration and wound lavage with ropivacaine is an alternative to opioids after major shoulder surgery. However, the efficacy and potential toxicity of this method remain unclear. We therefore evaluated plasma ropivacaine concentrations after shoulder infiltration and wound lavage. We subsequently quantified the efficacy of two(More)
AIMS The risk of neonates for severe infection/sepsis is reciprocally proportional to gestational age and birth weight. As monocytes and dendritic cells (DC) are recognised key antigen-presenting immune cells, we aimed to elucidate whether neonatal age is associated with reduced expression of human-leukocyte antigen-DR (HLA-DR) antigens on subsets of(More)
