lly W. Thurston Child blood lead concentrations have been associated with measures of immune dysregulation in nationally representative study samples. However, response to vaccination—often considered the gold standard in immunotoxicity testing—has not been examined in relation to typical background lead concentrations common among U.S. children. The present study estimated the association between blood lead concentrations and antigen-specific antibody levels to measles, mumps, and rubella in a nationally representative sample of 7005 U.S. children aged 6–17 years. Data from the 1999&n...

The aim of this study was to investigate a possible association of immunoglobulin (Ig) kappa (κ-) and lambda (λ-) free light chains (FLC) with the presence of th...

M. Yassine For a long time, viruses have been shown to modify the clinical picture of several autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes (T1D), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Sjögren’s syndrome (SS), herpetic stromal keratitis (HSK), celiac disease (CD), and multiple sclerosis (MS). Best examples of viral infections that have been proposed to modulate the induction and development of autoimmune diseases are the infections with enteric viruses such as Coxsackie B virus (CVB) and rotavirus, as well as influenza A viruses (IAV), and herpesviruses. Other viruses that ...

Abstract The polyspecific B-lymphocyte response to neurotropic viruses such as measles (M), rubella (R) and varicella zoster (Z), known as MRZ reaction, is to-date the most specific neurochemical marker for multiple sclerosis (MS). The aim of this study was to investigate a possible association of immunoglobulin (Ig) kappa (κ-) and lambda (λ-) free light chains (FLC) with the presence of the MRZ reaction in multiple sclerosis. Immunoglobulin κ- and λ-FLC, MRZ reaction, oligoclonal IgG bands (OCB), and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) routine parameters were measured in 65 MS patients. OCB were d...

Conclusion: Use of this tool will enable subnational teams to use their own data to evaluate the risk of outbreaks in their area and take corrective action for a rapid response to any importation of these viruses in the post-elimination phase. PMID: 31363357 [PubMed]
