Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection has been implicated in immunosenescence. To examine the influence of CMV on ability of healthy adults to respond to a novel influenza antigen, the rate of seroconversion and the magnitude of titers to pandemic 2009 H1N1 vaccine was assessed. The clinical trial was stratified by age; 52 persons aged 18-64 and 55 aged 65… CONTINUE READING
