Enhanced lymphoproliferation to influenza A virus following vaccination of older, chronically ill adults with live-attenuated viruses.


To question whether cellular immunity was stimulated by live-attenuated viruses in older, chronically ill adults, we intranasally inoculated 2 groups of volunteers (n = 37) with 2 different cold-recombinant, live-attenuated influenza A virus vaccines, and measured peripheral blood mononuclear cell responsiveness to influenza antigens and mitogen before and… (More)
