Protective immunity against Coxiella burnetii infection is conferred by vaccination with virulent (PI-WCV), but not avirulent (PII-WCV) whole-cell inactivated bacterium. The only well characterized antigenic difference between virulent and avirulent C. burnetii is they have smooth and rough LPS respectively.

Q fever remains widespread throughout the world; the disease is serious and causes outbreaks and deaths when complications are not detected. The diagnosis of Q fever requires the demonstration of the ...
In a population-based study with 4 years of follow up, we evaluated the prevalence of Coxiella burnetii in cattle on Ulleung Island, Korea. In this study, the rates of C. burnetii infection in cattle ...
Fever of unknown origin (FUO) is one of the greatest challenges for clinicians and patients. There are more than 200 etiological agents of FUO, among these the most common is the role of infection, ne...
Chronic Q fever is a persistent infection, mostly of aortic aneurysms, vascular prostheses or damaged heart valves caused by the intracellular bacterium Coxiella burnetii. Only a fraction of C. burnet...
Coxiella burnetii is a zoonotic agent transmitted mainly by small ruminants. In Brazil the disease has been classified as a notifiable disease since 2013, when human cases were reported. This study ai...
Diseases naturally transmitted between animals and humans (zoonoses) are one of the leading causes of emergence or re-emergence of human infectious diseases. Non-foodborne zoonoses are com...
This study aims to elucidate the role of Chemokine and chemokine receptor in the pathogenesis of Psoriasis by using human psoriasis skin xenograft SCID mouse model. The hypothesis is that ...
The IHU Mediterranean infection is national reference centre for Q fever. Coxiella burnetii is the bacteria responsible of this infection. The bacterium Coxiella burnetii infection is asso...
Emergent and infectious diseases are a public health priority on Reunion Island. Amongst public health threats, the infection due to Coxiella burnetii (Q fever) seems to have appeared on R...
A Study of Type-1 Polarized Dendritic Cell (αDC1) Vaccine in Combination With Tumor-Selective Chemokine Modulation (Interferon-α2b, Rintatolimod, and Celecoxib) in Subjects With Chemo-Refractory Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
The investigators hypothesize that the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients with the combination of alpha-type-1-polarized dendritic cell (αDC1) vaccines and tumor-se...
Receptor for CHEMOKINE CX3CL1 expressed by lymphocytes, neurons, and GLIAL CELLS. Its interaction with CX3CL1 mediates CELL ADHESION and CELL MIGRATION. It also functions as a co-receptor with the CD4 ANTIGEN for HIV-1 in vitro.
An acute infectious disease caused by COXIELLA BURNETII. It is characterized by a sudden onset of FEVER; HEADACHE; malaise; and weakness. In humans, it is commonly contracted by inhalation of infected dusts derived from infected domestic animals (ANIMALS, DOMESTIC).
An inhibitory T-lymphocyte receptor that has specificity for CD274 ANTIGEN and PROGRAMMED CELL DEATH 1 LIGAND 2 PROTEIN. Signaling by the receptor limits T cell proliferation and INTERFERON GAMMA synthesis. The receptor also may play an essential role in the regulatory pathway that induces PERIPHERAL TOLERANCE.
A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)
An INTEFERON-inducible CXC chemokine that is specific for the CXCR3 RECEPTOR.
Cytokines include chemokines, lymphokines, and monokines. Cells of the immune system communicate with one another by releasing and responding to chemical messengers called cytokines. These proteins are secreted by immune cells and act on other cells to...
