Conclusion: PCR evidence of infection with herpes group viruses was found in one-third of patients with hypertensive anterior uveitis; CMV being the most common pathogen. The PCR-positive group generally responded well to a combination of antiviral and anti-glaucoma treatment. PMID: 31697590 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Purpose of review Studying primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs) provides insights into human antiviral immunity in the natural infectious environment. This review describes new PIDs with genetic defects that impair innate antiviral responses. Recent findings New genetic defects in the interferon (IFN) signaling pathway include IFNAR1 deficiency, which causes uncontrolled infections with measles-mumps-rubella or yellow fever vaccines, and possibly also cytomegalovirus (CMV); and IRF9 deficiency, which results in influenza virus susceptibility. Genetic defects in several pattern recognition receptors include MDA5 deficienc...

Physicians repeat it over and over: Vaccines like the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine do not cause autism; they are safe and effective. Yet the decades-old false claim that vaccines do cause autism has convinced millions of parents not to give their children potentially lifesaving shots and could lead more to opt out, according to Texas physicians.

Infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in recipients of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantations (HCT) [1,2]. Whether or not immune protection can be transferred from donor to host by adoptive transplantation of mature lymphocytes within an allograft has not been completely clarified [2 –7]. Likewise, little is known about the persistence of residual host-type memory B and plasma cells, their ability to provide protective antibodies post allogeneic HCT, and whether this host-type immunity is influenced by clinical parameters, such as transplant conditioning and pharmacological im munosuppression.

Conclusion: Triangulating routine data on measles vaccination coverage and disease surveillance provided new insights into population immunity and helped identify vulnerable groups, which was useful for prioritizing public health actions to close gaps in immunity. This approach could be applied in any country that routinely records vaccine coverage and disease incidence. PMID: 31673191 [PubMed - in process]
