AIM Toll-like receptor (TLR) 1, 2, 6 and 10, the TLR2 subfamily, are known to be associated with immunity against tuberculosis. We evaluated whether polymorphisms in genes encoding TLR1, TLR2 and… (More)
SETTING Complications arising from bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination were recorded in a national register in Finland until 1988. In the period 1960-1988, 222 patients suffered from BCG… (More)
BACKGROUND Interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) is a key cytokine in defense against mycobacteria, including Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) and toll-like receptors (TLRs) are… (More)
BACKGROUND Inborn errors of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ)-mediated immunity underlie disseminated disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) live vaccines. We hypothesized that… (More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate whether mannose-binding lectin (MBL) plays a role in the development of osteitis after Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination as a newborn. METHODS… (More)
In 160 Finnish former Bacillus Calmette-Guérin osteitis patients, a questionnaire revealed that later in life, 22 (13.8%) had mild orthopedic complications as a consequence of the infection.
Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) osteitis was more common in Finland than elsewhere at the time when universal BCG vaccinations were given to Finnish newborns. There is evidence that IL-17 plays a role… (More)
AIM Interleukin-17 (IL-17) appears to promote the host's defence against mycobacterial infections. This study evaluated the association between IL17A gene polymorphism and the risk of Bacillus… (More)
Finnish newborns were vaccinated with Bacillus Callmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine from 1940s until 2006. The diagnostics of severe complications after vaccination was centralised until 1988, and 222… (More)
