Quadrivalent HPV Vaccination and the Risk of Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes
31/12/69 - Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines are recommended for all girls and women 9 to 26 years of age, and more than 72 million girls and women have been vaccinated worldwide.

Repurposing a Bacterial Immune System to Discover Antiviral Targets
31/12/69 - The effect of new, easy-to-use tools for editing cellular genomes in medicine and biomedical science is difficult to overstate. The new method uses programmable DNA-cutting machinery from a bacterial immune system (CRISPR [clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats]?Cas9), which can…
Ensuring Vaccine Safety in Pregnant Women
31/12/69 - In this issue of the Journal, investigators from Denmark present a comprehensive review of the adverse pregnancy outcomes encountered in women who received quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine during pregnancy, as compared with those who did not. The investigators assembled data on all…
31/12/69 - Vaccines have been one of the most useful tools for achieving substantial reductions in childhood mortality. However, progress in reducing deaths has been slower for infants too young to be vaccinated than for infants and children old enough to receive vaccines. Immunization schedules start when…
Zika Virus Infection and Associated Neurologic Disorders in Brazil
31/12/69 - To the Editor: The first cases of a new illness involving fever and rash that was deemed to have been caused by Zika virus (ZIKV) infection in Brazil were reported in 2014, and the presence of the virus was confirmed in April 2015. In October 2015, an unusual increase in the number of cases of…
Efficacy of a Low-Cost, Heat-Stable Oral Rotavirus Vaccine in Niger
31/12/69 - Rotavirus is a leading cause of severe gastroenteritis among young children and is responsible for approximately 37% of deaths from diarrhea among children younger than 5 years of age worldwide. Two live, oral, attenuated rotavirus vaccines (Rotarix, GlaxoSmithKline, and RotaTeq, Merck) have met…
Interleukin-12 and Interleukin-23 Blockade in Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency Type 1
31/12/69 - LAD1 is a primary immunodeficiency resulting from mutations in ITGB2, which encodes the common CD18 subunit of the ?2 integrins; the ?2 integrins are required for the adhesion of neutrophils to endothelium and the transmigration of neutrophils into tissues. Patients with LAD1 typically have…
Rotavirus Vaccines ? A New Hope
31/12/69 - Rotavirus gastroenteritis is the leading cause of diarrhea-associated hospitalization and death in children younger than 5 years of age, with more than 85% of the approximately 200,000 annual rotavirus deaths occurring in Africa and Asia. Since improvements in water, sanitation, and hygiene do not…
