On invariant T cells and measles: A theory of “innate immune amnesia”

Despite the availability of safe, effective and affordable vaccines against MeV, anti-vaccination sentiments have created vulnerable societal pockets, which can be troubling in light of the increasing ease of global travel.

The Detection and Characterization of Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 in Confirmed Measles Cases

It was found that measles virus isolates from 40 throat swab samples exhibited atypical cytopathic effects in Vero/hSLAM cells, which was found to be a result of coinfection with measles virus (MeV) and human herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1).

An evaluation of the clinical features of measles virus infection for diagnosis in children within a limited resources setting

The combination of fever, maculopapular rash, and hyperpigmented rash can be used as a screening tool regarding measles infection in an outbreak setting, which can then be confirmed by anti-measles Ig M.

Life-Threatening Infections Due to Live-Attenuated Vaccines: Early Manifestations of Inborn Errors of Immunity

The study of IEIs underlying life-threatening LAV infections is clinically important for the affected patients and their families, as well as immunologically, for the study of the molecular and cellular basis of host defense against both attenuated and parental pathogens.

A survey of vaccine-induced measles IgG antibody titer and the verification of changes in temporal differences of measles vaccination in young adults

Results indicate that periodic vaccination against measles is required for young and older adults to prevent even sporadic measles infection, and that measles IgG titers were significantly different.

T Lymphocytes as Measurable Targets of Protection and Vaccination Against Viral Disorders

Epidemiological and molecular characteristics of a measles outbreak in northern Vietnam, 2013-2014.

Clinical Practices for Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccination Among US Pediatric International Travelers.

Examining clinical practice regarding MMR vaccination of pediatric international travelers and identifying reasons for nonvaccination of pediatric travelers identified as MMR eligible found strategies may be needed to improve MMR vaccination among pediatric travelers and to reduce measles importations and outbreaks in the United States.
