Sanidad estudia levantar el bloqueo a la vacuna de la varicela

Sanidad estudia levantar el bloqueo a la vacuna de la varicela | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
Las sociedades científicas reclaman la vacunación a los 12 meses y no a los 12 años
Alfredo Corell's insight:

El Ministerio de Sanidad estudia levantar el bloqueo a la vacuna de la varicela que aplicó hace dos años, cuando Ana Mato era la titular del departamento. El actual ministro, Alfonso Alonso, ha reconocido hoy que hablará con las comunidades autónomas de la posibilidad de volver a administrar esta vacuna a edades tempranas. Actualmente, y pese a la recomendación unánime de los pediatras, esta inmunización no se puede recibir en España hasta los 12 años. Sanidad llegó a retirar de las farmacias Varivax, la vacuna de Sanofi Pasteur MSD, para evitar que los padres la compraran por su cuenta.

If helper T cells have nothing to help, they kill their host

If helper T cells have nothing to help, they kill their host | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
For vaccines, CD4+ T cells can spell trouble

The ideal vaccine elicits immune memory—either antibodies or memory T cells—to protect the host from subsequent infections. T cell–mediated immunity requires both helper CD4+ T cells and cytotoxic CD8+ T cells to kill virus-infected cells. But what happens when a vaccine only elicits CD4+ memory T cells? Penaloza-MacMaster et al. probed this question by giving mice a vaccine that generated only memory CD4+ T cells against lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV). Instead of protecting mice against chronic LCMV, vaccinated mice developed massive inflammation and died. Virus-specific CD8+ T cells or antibodies protected mice from the pathology. These results may have implications for vaccines against chronic viruses such as HIV.

Science 16 January 2015: 
Vol. 347 no. 6219 pp. 278-282 
DOI: 10.1126/science.aaa2148

Alfredo Corell's insight:

CD4 T cells promote innate and adaptive immune responses, but how vaccine-elicited CD4 T cells contribute to immune protection remains unclear. We evaluated whether induction of virus-specific CD4 T cells by vaccination would protect mice against infection with chronic lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV). Immunization with vaccines that selectively induced CD4 T cell responses resulted in catastrophic inflammation and mortality after challenge with a persistent strain of LCMV. Immunopathology required antigen-specific CD4 T cells and was associated with a cytokine storm, generalized inflammation, and multi-organ system failure. Virus-specific CD8 T cells or antibodies abrogated the pathology. These data demonstrate that vaccine-elicited CD4 T cells in the absence of effective antiviral immune responses can trigger lethal immunopathology.

Extreme Orange Allergy Nearly Kills Toddler in First Recorded Case

Extreme Orange Allergy Nearly Kills Toddler in First Recorded Case | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it

Fruits like oranges don’t commonly cause allergic reactions, and even when they do, the symptoms are usually mild and involve irritation and itching of the mouth.No need to give up your morning glass of OJ, though.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

A 2-year-old girl in Pennsylvania nearly died recently after she suffered an unusually severe allergic reaction to eating an orange, her doctors reported.

The toddler picked up the orange in a supermarket, and within a few minutes of eating it, she developed a reaction that required a prompt trip to the emergency room, and later a helicopter ride to an intensive care unit at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

But it isn't certain that these changes would significantly increase the risks of long-term spaceflight. An upcoming year-long mission will provide further data for study. If the evidence suggests that immune system confusion could pose a threat to astronauts, the next step will be figuring out how to counteract it. Whatever they develop could make its way back to earth, providing new tools to help immune-compromised patients here at home.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

There is no cure for Ebola. The virus has killed 1,069 of 1,975 people afflicted in the four West African nations as of Aug. 11, the WHO said yesterday.

The disease is normally treated by keeping patients hydrated, replacing lost blood and using antibiotics to fight opportunistic infections. The hope is that a patient’s immune system will eventually fight off the virus’s aggressive attack.

Más de MEDIO MILLÓN de visitas a las #Inmunopíldoras | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it

En marzo de 2015 la colección de Inmunopíldoras de la Universidad de Valladolid ha superado el medio millón de visitas. El equipo responsable del proyecto Inmunomedia 4.0 se siente muy agradecido por la acogida y sigue trabajando en nuevas entregas.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Cuando se comenzaron a grabar las primeras píldoras en julio de 2013 no imaginábamos la gran acogida que iban a tener. Más de medio millón de visitas, cientos de correos de agradecimientos de estudiantes de todo el mundo (no citaré paises por no dejarme ninguno fuera).

Si resaltar que los países con más visitas son Colombia, México y España, pero con un grandísimo nivel de visitas de todos los paises de Iberoamérica. También en Europa tenemos alumnos estudiando con las inmunopíldoras.

Estamos trabajando en el subtitulado al inglés y al francés, que en breve estarán disponibles para algunas entregas. Y por supuesto diseñando las nuevas grabaciones, si cabe con más ánimo y dedicación.

Medio millón de gracias se quedarían cortas.

Influence of the microbiota on vaccine effectiveness

Influence of the microbiota on vaccine effectiveness | Immunology for University Students | Scoop.it
Publication stage: In Press Corrected Proof
Alfredo Corell's insight:


Highlights


  • Gut microbial composition affects immune system function.
  • The immune system influences host microbial populations.
  • Microbiota diversity and composition may impact upon vaccine efficacy.
  • A mechanistic understanding should inform future vaccination strategies.



Studies of the relationship between the microbiome and the development and function of the immune system are demonstrating novel concepts that could significantly alter the way we treat disease and promote wellness. Several diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, allergy/asthma, and diabetes, are associated with changes in composition of the microbiome. Recent findings suggest novel complex mechanisms by which the microbiome impacts immune cell development and differentiation. A major implication of these findings is that the composition of microbiome may ultimately affect vaccine efficacy. We explore here the potential role of the microbiome in vaccine responses in the context of our growing understanding of the relationship between the gastrointestinal microbiota, resident immune cell populations, and systemic immunity.
