Occurrence of respiratory syncytial virus subgroup A and B strains in Japan, 1980 to 1987
The subgroup characteristics of 71 strains of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) isolated in Sapporo, Japan, during 5 epidemic years from 1980 to 1987 were determined by the use of 17 monoclonalExpand
Respiratory syncytial virus infection. Rapid diagnosis in children by use of indirect immunofluorescence.
Using IFAT, identification of RS virus could be accomplished within four to six hours, whereas isolation by tissue culture took an average period of ten days, suggesting that IFAT is a reliable means for the rapid diagnosis of RSirus infection in infants and children. Expand
Immune response to acute otitis media in children III. Implications of viral antibody in middle ear fluid.
Specific immunologic sensitization of the middle ear mucosa can be achieved by parenteral as well as oral routes of immunization, and specific immunologic memory exists in the middleEar mucosa, which are crucial to feasibility of Immunization against acute otitis media. Expand
Development of in vitro correlates of cell-mediated immunity to respiratory syncytial virus infection in humans.
Observations raise the possibility that cell-mediated hypersensitivity reactions may be related to the pathogenesis of RSV infection of infants, as determined by in vitro lymphocyte transformation (LTF) activity. Expand
Effect of breast feeding on the development of anti-idiotype antibody response to F glycoprotein of respiratory syncytial virus in infant mice after post-partum maternal immunization.
Induction of RSV-specific anti-idiotype antibody in the neonates via the process of breast feeding, secondary to maternal immunization after the delivery of the neonate is demonstrated. Expand
Antibody activity against mumps, measles, polio, and rubella viruses was determined in patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, rubella-vaccine associated arthritis, adult rheumatic arthritis, other chronic systemic disorders, and in a matched population of normal, non-rheumatoids (control) children.

The middle ear mucosal immune system in otitis media with effusion.
The mucous membrane of the middle ear cavity in otitis media with effusion has a number of immunobiological mechanisms capable of defending the organ andSerous effusions appear to augment natural killer cell activity of peripheral blood lymphocytes. Expand
Arthritis associated with induced rubella infection.
Immunologic properties of RA27-3 rubella virus vaccine. A comparison with strains presently licensed in the United States.
The Wistar RA27/3 strain of rubella virus was attenuated in WI-38 cell culture, and although it induces predominantly subclinical infection, it is immunogenic both intranasally and subcutaneously, and can be used to boost the antibody titer of subjects previously given Cendehill or HPV-77 vaccines.

It is suggested that HAA may replicate in various mucosal surfaces, and such a mechanism may explain the nonparenteral transmission of long incubation hepatitis. Expand
