• vaccine
  • The measles vaccine is generally given at age 12-15 months and again at age 4-6 or 11-12 years. (winchesterhospital.org)
  • Seventeen (39%) were infected while visiting a health-care facility, including a child aged 12 months who was exposed in a physician's office when receiving a routine dose of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. (cdc.gov)
  • Since the measles vaccine has been introduced, the disease has become rare in many areas of the globe, particularly the western world (about one in 1,000,000 people). (encyclopedia.com)
  • glycoprotein
  • The amino acid sequence of a carboxy terminal domain corresponding to the end of the outer envelope projection of the hemagglutinin glycoprotein (HA) of measles and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis viruses has a high degree of homology with the active domain of long neurotoxins, which specifically binds to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.

  • vaccination
  • Campbell H, Andrews N, Brown KE, Miller E. Review of the effect of measles vaccination on the epidemiology of SSPE. (winchesterhospital.org)
  • As a result of a successful U.S. vaccination program, measles elimination (i.e., interruption of endemic measles transmission) was declared in the United States in 2000 ( 1 ). (cdc.gov)
  • Of the 64 cases, 54 were associated with importation of measles from other countries into the United States, and 63 of the 64 patients were unvaccinated or had unknown or undocumented vaccination status. (cdc.gov)
  • Because these cases resulted from importations and occurred almost exclusively in unvaccinated persons, the findings underscore the ongoing risk for measles among unvaccinated persons and the importance of maintaining high levels of vaccination. (cdc.gov)
  • cases
  • The number of reported measles cases has declined from 763,094 in 1958 to fewer than 150 cases reported per year since 1997 ( 1 ). (cdc.gov)
  • During 2000--2007,* a total of 29--116 measles cases (mean: 62, median: 56) were reported annually. (cdc.gov)
  • However, during January 1--April 25, 2008, a total of 64 confirmed measles cases were preliminarily reported to CDC, the most reported by this date for any year since 2001. (cdc.gov)
  • Measles cases in the United States are reported by state health departments preliminarily to CDC, and confirmed cases are reported officially via the National Notifiable Disease Surveillance System, using standard case definitions and case classifications. (cdc.gov)
  • Cases are considered importation associated if they are 1) acquired outside the United States (i.e., international importation) or 2) acquired inside the United States and either epidemiologically linked via a chain of transmission to an importation or accompanied by virologic evidence of importation (i.e., a chain of transmission from which a measles virus is identified that is not endemic in the United States). (cdc.gov)
  • Fifty-six of the 64 measles cases reported in 2008 have occurred in five outbreaks (defined as three or more cases linked in time or place). (cdc.gov)
