Measles is associated with a vigorous antibody response without production of significant measles virus-specific delayed type hypersensitivity. Generalized disruption of immune responses also occurs during measles, including depressed skin test responses and decreased in vitro lymphocyte proliferation to mitogens. To determine if preferential activation of a subset of CD4 cells might explain these observations, the patterns of cytokines produced in vivo and in vitro during measles were… CONTINUE READING
