Vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) is a rare complication of oral polio vaccine. We describe a fatal case of VAPP in an 8-month-old boy with Major Histocompatibility Class II deficiency. The isolated poliovirus was a Sabin type 2-type 1 recombinant that showed 1.4% VP1 divergence from Sabin type 2.
The distribution of 24 histocompatibility antigens in 88 Azerbaijani patients with leprosy was determined and compared with those of 125 normal, ethnically matched individuals. HLA-BW35 was increased in frequency among the Kurdish patients as compared to the controls; HLA-A1, however, displayed decreased frequency in patients with the lepromatous form of(More)
The aim of this study was the detection of a 114 base pairs amplicon in 5' non-translated region of enterovirus genome in stool specimens of patients with acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) which were negative on cell culture. One hundred and twenty stool specimens were collected from AFP cases and tested with cell culture (RD, L20B and Hep2 cell lines). RT-PCR(More)
The frequencies of HLA locus A, B and C antigens were determined in a previously unstudied population, the Zoroastrians. The phenotype and gene frequencies for this group are presented and contrasted with the distribution of HLA antigens among the Iranian Moslems. Comparison of the HLA profiles of these two Iranian populations suggests that the present(More)
The distribution of HLA phenotype, genotype and haplotype frequencies was studied in two Iranian populations, the Armenians and the Jews. Although the frequencies of most antigens in the Armenians have approximately the average Jewish values, haplotype frequencies are quite different between the two populations. The frequencies of antigens in Iranian Jews(More)
