Live Attenuated Varicella Vaccine

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is the etiologic agent of varicella and zoster. Varicella is the primary infection, and zoster is due to reactivation of latent VZV acquired during chickenpox. Each disease is characterized by a macu-lopapular and vesicular skin eruption, which in varicella is generalized, and in zoster is unilateral and usually localized. Varicella is often mild and uncomplicated in otherwise healthy children, but it may unpredictably be associated with significant morbidity and even mortality. In the United States, in the pre-vaccine era, there were about 100 annual deaths from varicella and 11,000 hospitalizations 1 . Most deaths from varicella occurred in individuals who were healthy before contracting varicella. The risk of developing zoster is increased in the immunocompromised and the elderly, and zoster may be severe but is rarely fatal. the epidemiology of varicella is changing, with a decreased incidence of chicken-pox in both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated...

Practical Classification of Immunity

Cognitive Conceptualization

A generation ago, it was common at certain times of the year for grade-school classrooms to be nearly empty, due to several infectious childhood diseases, including measles, mumps, rubella, and chicken pox. However, each child usually suffered each illness only once, thanks to naturally acquired active immunity. This form of immunity develops after a primary immune response and is a response to exposure to a live pathogen and development of symptoms. Vaccines stimulate active immunity against a variety of diseases, including typhoid fever, cholera, whooping cough, diphtheria, tetanus, polio, chicken pox, measles (rubeola), German measles (rubella), mumps, influenza, hepatitis B, and bacterial pneumonia. Vaccines have virtually eliminated smallpox from the world and greatly diminished the number of cases of poliomyelitis and infection by Haemophilus influenzae type B, which causes meningitis in preschool children. Unfortunately, distribution of vaccines is not equitable worldwide. Many...

Varicella Zoster Virus Infections during Pregnancy

John Kennedy Death Body

In most industrial countries, chickenpox is a rare disease during pregnancy as more than 90 of women of child-bearing age possess virus-specific IgG class antibodies. Only 3-4 of women in Germany were found to be susceptible to primary varicella-zoster virus (VZV) infection 1 . In early reports, the average incidence of varicella in pregnant women was calculated as 0.7 per 1,000 pregnancies 2, 3 , but the current rates appear to be 2-3 per 1,000 pregnancies 4 . At any stage during pregnancy, chickenpox may cause intrauterine infection. Maternal varicella resulting in viremia may transmit the virus to the fetus by either transplacental spread, or by ascending infection from lesions in the birth canal. Furthermore, direct contact or respiratory droplet can lead to infection after birth. The consequences for the infant depend on the time of maternal disease. They range from asymptomatic infection to fetal loss especially in case of severe maternal disease. Primary VZV infection during...

Hispanic Americans

(colonias) along the Texas-Mexico border are economically as bad off or worse in some cases than third-world countries (Cuellar, 1999) and have the highest rates in the state of Texas for numerous infectious diseases such as amebiasis, hepatitis A, shigonelliosis, tuberculosis, chickenpox, and so on (Cuellar, 1999). There is also an increase in neural tube defects, particularly toward the southernmost tip of Texas along the Rio Grande River (Johnson, 1999).

General Aspects of Therapy

Four different antivirals (acyclovir, valacyclovir, famciclovir and brivudin) (fig. 1) have become available for the treatment of herpes zoster over the years. All of these are nucleoside analogues, which interfere with viral nucleic acid chain synthesis, thereby inhibiting viral replication. In more recent years, oral acyclovir has been replaced by its prodrug valacyclovir in the oral treatment of herpes zoster. Acyclovir has a comparable lower oral bioavailability (20 ) than valacyclovir. Another nucleoside analogue is penciclovir, which has a similar activity and mechanism compared to acyclovir. Its prodrug famciclovir is used for oral treatment of VZV infections (herpes zoster and chickenpox). While

Local Delivery In Rat Brain Tumor Models

A second generation replication-conditional herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV) vector defective for both ribonucleotide reductase (RR) and the neurovirulence factor gamma 34.5 was developed and tested for therapeutic efficacy in rats bearing intracranial 9L tumors 24 . This modified viral vector was designated MGH-1. The modified viruses were injected intratumorally or intrathecally with or without administration of ganciclovir. There was no toxicity due to administration of the MGH-1 virus, however, there was a decreased therapeutic effect with the MGH-1 virus compared with the parental vector. To investigate the potential of the thymidine kinase gene from Varicella zoster virus (VZVtk) to act as a suicide gene, VZVtk was transferred via a dicistronic retroviral construct in 9L rat gliosarcoma cells 25, 26 . The 9L gliosarcoma cells infected with the VZVtk-carrying vector were implanted in vivo. When the tumor-bearing animals were treated with (E)-5-(2-bromovinyl)-2'-deoxyuridine...

White Blood Cell Counts

A total white blood cell count below 5,000 per mm3 of blood is called leukopenia. Such a deficiency may accompany typhoid fever, influenza, measles, mumps, chicken pox, AIDS, or poliomyelitis. Leukopenia may also result from anemia or from lead, arsenic, or mercury poisoning.

Meso American medicine

The Incas occupied the highlands along the west coast of what is now Peru. The Mayan culture occupied the Yucatan Peninsula and surrounding areas of Central America, and the Aztecs controlled the central plateaus of Central America. When Columbus, Cortez, and their compatriots arrived in the new world, the Meso-American cultures were exposed to several devastating diseases, including measles, smallpox, and chickenpox, which were more lethal than the military armaments the invaders brought. The Pre-Columbian Americans still lived in a Stone Age culture, but were highly sophisticated in their knowledge of mathematics, astronomy, and language. Among the most useful drugs discovered in the New World was the Cinchona bark (quinine), which was used to treat fevers, including malaria. Diseases were believed to be caused by supernatural, magical, and natural causes. Treatment was related to the cause (56). One of the sources of information about disease in Pre-Columbian...

Tuberculosis during childhood and adulthood

Adults usually have pronounced systemic effects (such as weight loss and high fever) and immunopathology (such as cavitation and fibrosis). Adulthood disease ('secondary' tuberculosis) is usually ascribed to a secondary immune response following re-infection or re-activation (the Koch phenomenon). Other factors may however contribute to the differences in the immune response of children versus adults. We have seen a number of children presenting with culture proven childhood ('primary') tuberculosis, who were fully treated but developed culture proven tuberculosis again several years later, before the onset of puberty. These children were HIV negative and did not have any evidence for immune deficiency. On second presentation, they again had the childhood form of disease. Differences in the immune response between adults and children are also seen in viral diseases. Young children are more susceptible to viral infections than adults, but adults develop immunopathology, such as viral...

In Vivo Immune Effects Of Senescent T Cells

In addition to the role that putatively senescent CD8+ T cells may play in regulating functions of other immune cell types, these cells also show alterations in the normal functional attributes of CD8+ T cells. First, CD8+CD28 T cells isolated ex vivo are unable to proliferate (like their cell culture counterparts), even in response to signals that bypass cell surface receptors, such as PMA and ionomycin (Effros et al., 1996). This observation is consistent with extensive research on replicative senescence in a variety of cell types documenting the irreversible nature of the proliferative block, and its association with upregulation of cell cycle inhibitors and p53-linked checkpoints (Campisi, 2001). If the CD8+CD28 T cells present in elderly persons are virus-specific, their inability to undergo the requisite clonal expansion in response to antigen re-encounter will compromise the immune control over that particular virus. Indeed, as noted above, senescent HIV-specific CD8+ T cells...


Varicella zoster virus (VZV chickenpox) is transmitted to the fetus, in 24 of the cases, following maternal varicella infection during the last month of pregnancy. VZV results in fetal skin scarring, limb hypoplasia, rudimentary digits, club foot, microcephaly, and mental retardation.

Serological assays are frequently used for the diagnosis of chickenpox and herpes zoster. The preferred methods are enzyme immunoassays (ELISA) which show both a high specificity and sensitivity 32 . However, the detection of VZV-specific antibodies for the diagnosis of atypical zoster is only of limited value when a rapid confirmation of VZV-infection is needed. Nevertheless, some problems remain in the serological diagnosis of VZV infections. VZV reactivation induces often a significant rise of IgG and IgA 33, 34 antibodies, which are found in 50-60 10, 35 of the patients. However IgM antibodies are also sometimes detectable. Thus differentiation of primary and recurrent infection can be difficult 36 . Furthermore, sharing of antigens between VZV and HSV can result in high anti HSV and anti VZV levels and it will be difficult to differentiate between both diseases without further information or additional tests 23, 37 . The main value of serologic assays is the determination of the...

Pediatric Stroke

Chickenpox (varicella zoster) is associated with an angiopathy which can lead to stroke. Over time this angiopathy may resolve. Varicella infections have also been associated with an acquired antibody to protein S and this may also play a role in stroke formation. Another infectious cause of stroke is vascular inflammation from meningitis or encephalitis.


Varicella and herpes zoster are different manifestations of the same virus. The primary infection produces chickenpox during childhood in the United States, although varicella is a disease of the reproductive years in subtropical and tropical climate countries. Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease and humans are the only reservoir. It is transmitted by droplets from vesicular fluid or secretions from the upper respiratory tract. There are approximately 1-7 cases per 10,000 pregnancies (Freij & Sever, 1997 Gilstrap, 1997 Paryani & Arvin, 1986 Preblud, Cochi, & Orenstein, 1986). The manifestations of congenital varicella include cortical atrophy and other neurological findings. Varivax, the live attenuated varicella vaccine, was approved in the United States in 1995 (Gibbs & Sweet, 1999).

Viral Infections

Orofacial herpes zoster infection usually follows the distribution of one of the three branches of the trigeminal nerve on one side of the face. It may also be disseminated. HIV infection has been associated with a 17-fold relative risk increase for zoster, which occurs at any CD4 count but becomes more severe as immunosuppression worsens (18) Involvement of the ophthalmic branch and the eye should be ruled out, and the patient presenting with suspicious lesions on the forehead or pinna should be referred for evaluation to an ophthalmologist, to rule out zoster ophthalmicus from involvement of the nasociliary branch of cranial nerve V (Fig. 15). Facial nerve involvement with facial palsy may occur (Ramsay-Hunt syndrome). Chronic forms and up to 20 recurrence rate have been reported.
