Evidence of cryptic incidence in childhood diseases

This work examines measles and pertussis in pre-vaccine era U.S. cities, and describes a conserved scaling relationship between population size, reporting probability, and observed presence that provides an upper bound on the marginal probability of disease extinction.

The use of MV as a recombinant vaccine and a therapeutic vector is addressed and the development of novel vaccine candidates that induce immunity against measles and other pathogens is addressed.

Infection of lymphoid tissues in the macaque upper respiratory tract contributes to the emergence of transmissible measles virus.

A comprehensive pathological analysis has been performed of tissues from the respiratory tract around the peak of virus replication, finding coughing and sneezing response induced by disruption of the ciliated epithelium, leading to the expulsion of MV-infected cells, cell debris and cell-free virus contributes to the highly infectious nature of MV.



The numbered diseases: first through sixth.

The statement that exanthema subitum is the fourth disease is in error, although the numbering of the other four diseases mentioned is correct.

The presumption that this group of agents isolated in cultures of human or simian renal cells is composed of representatives of the viral species responsible for measles is supported.
