Lymphocyte responses to varicella zoster virus in the elderly


Elderly subjects (age 75–95 years) immune to varicella zoster virus (VZV) were identified by the presence of serum IgG antibody. The frequency of lymphocytes in their blood which proliferated in varicella zoster virus antigen-stimulated cultures was 1:78,000±6600. This is less than the 1:14,000±2000 frequency of VZV-responsive lymphocytes in blood from… (More)
