Incomplete genetic reconstitution of B cell pools contributes to prolonged immunosuppression after measles
TLDR
The results show that MeV infection causes changes in naïve and memory B lymphocyte diversity that persist after the resolution of clinical disease and thus contribute to compromised immunity to previous infections or vaccinations.
Measles virus infection diminishes preexisting antibodies that offer protection from other pathogens
TLDR
It is found that measles infection can greatly diminish previously acquired immune memory, potentially leaving individuals at risk for infection by other pathogens.
