Vaccination adherence to influenza, pneumococcal and hepatitis B virus in adult type 1 diabetes mellitus patients

Different abnormalities account for the increased risk of viral and bacterial infection in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Main irregularities include: decreased CD4/CD8 lymphocyte ratios, reduced monocyte phagocytic function and defects in interleukin-2 production [1 –6]. Individuals with DM are 6 time more likely to be hospitalized and 3 times more likely to die from complications of influenza or pneumonia when compared to those in general population [7]. People with DM have higher rates of hepatitis B due to contact with infected blood or through improper eq uipment use (glucose monitoring devices or infected needles) [8].

The surface of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, owing to the complex architecture of its cell envelope, expresses numerous adhesins with varied chemical nature, including proteins, lipids, lipoproteins, glycoproteins and glycopolymers. Studies on mycobacterial adhesins show that they bind with multifarious host receptors and extrac...
