This study focused on the expression of CD38 and HLA-DR on lymphocyte subsets in various groups of HIV-infected individuals and to determine their association with HIV-1 disease progression.MethodsNinety-eight cases of patients with HIV/AIDS in different disease stages and twenty-four healthy HIV-negative individuals were included in the cross-sectional study. Their immune function and abnormal immune activation markers (CD38 &HLA-DR) were detected using a flowcytometer, and HIV-1 RNA levels in individuals receiving antiretroviral drugs were estimated.ResultsThe immune activation marker levels were significantly differ...

Abstract The study aimed to describe cases and verify the frequency of anaphylaxis related to measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine produced by manufacturer A and to assess associated risk factors. This was a case-control study (1:4) in Santa Catarina State, Brazil, from July 14, 2014, to January 12, 2015, in children from one year to less than five years of age, vaccinated with MMR and reported with anaphylaxis, while the controls were without anaphylaxis. The measure of association was odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence interval (95%CI), using the chi-square and Fisher's exact tests. Anaphylaxis rates were ...
