• Antibodies
  • Persistence of bactericidal antibodies to 5 years of age after immunization with serogroup B meningococcal vaccines at 6, 8, 12 and 40 months of age. (ox.ac.uk)
  • We evaluated the persistence of bactericidal antibodies through early childhood, following infant immunisation with varying schedules of MenACWY-CRM(197) vaccine. (ox.ac.uk)
  • The basic tests performed when an immunodeficiency is suspected should include a full blood count (including accurate lymphocyte and granulocyte counts) and immunoglobulin levels (the three most important types of antibodies: IgG, IgA and IgM). (wikipedia.org)
  • Tests for T cell function: skin tests for delayed-type hypersensitivity, cell responses to mitogens and allogeneic cells, cytokine production by cells Tests for B cell function: antibodies to routine immunisations and commonly acquired infections, quantification of IgG subclasses Tests for phagocyte function: reduction of nitro blue tetrazolium chloride, assays of chemotaxis, bactericidal activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • antibody
  • CONCLUSIONS: Serogroup-specific bactericidal antibody wane following infant immunisation with MenACWY-CRM(197), most markedly against serogroup A. Best persistence against serogroup C is observed with MenC conjugate vaccine priming and MenACWY-CRM(197) at 12 months, compared to schedules using only MenACWY-CRM(197), with the potential for providing broader protection compared to monovalent MenC vaccines alone.

  • dose
  • The dose required should be monitored by blood testing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adverse effects of gentamicin can range from less severe reactions such as nausea and vomiting to more severe reactions such as: Low blood counts Allergic responses Neuromuscular problems Nerve damage Kidney damage (nephrotoxicity) Ear disorders (ototoxicity) Nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity are thought to be dose related with higher doses causing greater chance of toxicity. (wikipedia.org)
  • antibacterial
  • The main components of gentamicin include members of the gentamicin C complex: gentamicin C1, gentamicin C1a, and gentamicin C2 which compose approximately 80% of gentamicin and have been found to have the highest antibacterial activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels
  • Levels of bactericidal activity were detectable in fewer control children. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Azlocillin, cimetidine and probenecid increase blood levels of difloxacin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Factors that increase risk of nephrotoxicity include: Increased age Reduced renal function Pregnancy Hypothyroidism Hepatic dysfunction Volume depletion Metabolic acidosis Sodium depletion Kidney dysfunction is monitored by measuring creatinine in the blood, electrolyte levels, low urine output, foamy urine, and concentrations of other chemicals in the blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • action
  • In the body, taurolidine is metabolized rapidly via the metabolites taurultam and methylol taurinamide, which also have a bactericidal action, to taurine, an endogenous aminosulphonic acid, CO2 and H2O. (wikipedia.org)
  • uptake
  • In preterm infants some IgA may be absorbed through the intestinal epithelium and enter the blood stream though there is very little uptake in full term babies. (wikipedia.org)
  • reduction
  • This clears excess bilirubin, a waste-product of dead red blood cells, which is produced in large quantities at birth due to blood volume reduction from the infant's body and helps prevent jaundice. (wikipedia.org)
  • neutrophils
  • SBP is diagnosed if the fluid contains neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) at greater than 250 cells per mm3 (equals a cell count of 250 x106/L) fluid in the absence of another reason for this (such as inflammation of one of the internal organs or a perforation). (wikipedia.org)
  • children
  • Forty-nine control children were also recruited and blood obtained before and after 2 doses of 4CMenB at 60 and 62 months of age. (ox.ac.uk)
  • cells
  • Other tests are performed depending on the suspected disorder: Quantification of the different types of mononuclear cells in the blood (i.e. lymphocytes and monocytes): different groups of T lymphocytes (dependent on their cell surface markers, e.g. (wikipedia.org)
  • inform
  • We are pleased to announce the release of SPRINT-TB Annual Report 2015 - the first in the series of reports the programme will publish annually to inform the scientific and broader community of its activities, news and discoveries. (sprinttb.org)
  • doses
  • 9 While some diseases, such as hematologic neoplasms, cause neutropenia, it occurs most often as a result of the myelosuppression caused by antineoplastic chemotherapy, especially when such therapy is administered at doses designed to achieve maximum antitumor activity. (nih.gov)
  • Anemia
  • Increased hepcidin activity is partially responsible for reduced iron availability seen in anemia of chronic inflammation, such as renal failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • result
  • Combining a cell wall-active agent such as ampicillin or vancomycin with an aminoglycoside may result in synergistic bactericidal activity against enterococci. (medscape.com)
  • SBP is thought to result from a combination of factors inherent in cirrhosis and ascites, such as prolonged bacteremia secondary to compromised host defenses, intrahepatic shunting of colonized blood, and defective bactericidal activity within the ascitic fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • stream
  • Taurolidine is the active ingredient of anti-microbial catheter lock solutions for the prevention and treatment of catheter related blood stream infections (CRBSIs) and is suitable for use in all catheter based vascular access devices. (wikipedia.org)

  • Notable highlights in the first year of SPRINT-TB's formal existence include identification by Theme 1 of potent activity of bortezomib against a new target M. tuberculosis . (sprinttb.org)

  • Activity of the alveolar macrophage is relatively high, because they are located at one of the major boundaries between the body and the outside world. (wikipedia.org)
