The plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT), which measures a subset of immunoglobulin antibodies (Ig) (functional neutralizing antibodies), and the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), which measures total Ig (neutralizing and non-neutralizing antibodies), characterize different aspects of the anti-mumps virus antibody response after vaccination.

Severe disease associated with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection occurs predominantly among infants under 6 months of age. Vaccines for prevention are in clinical development. Assessment of ...
The development and wide-spread use of mumps vaccine resulted in a dramatic and sustained decrease in the incidence of mumps disease; however, since 2000, an increase in the size and number of mumps o...
To compare the effect of the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart and Oral-B Genius 8000 powered toothbrushes on gingivitis, gingival bleeding, and supragingival plaque reduction following 42 days of h...
In 2016, a year-long large-scale mumps outbreak occurred in Arkansas among a highly-vaccinated population. A total of 2954 mumps cases were identified during this outbreak. The majority of cases (1676...
There is currently considerable interest in the role of specific IgG antibodies in allergy. Several studies suggest that specific IgG antibodies may play a protective role in allergy. Successful immun...
This study will quantify changes in coronary plaque volumes and plaque composition in patients treated with evolocumab. Previous intravascular ultrasound studies have shown that treatment...
The purpose of this trial is to study the safety and immune response to measles, mumps, and rubella in children who were vaccinated with an investigational measles-mumps-rubella live vacci...
This study will lay the foundation for determining the underlying reasons for lack of immunity to mumps that led to the 2006 mumps outbreak on college campuses in the Mid West, and it will...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that an investigational refrigerated vaccine with measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella is well tolerated and has similar immune response when ...
Mumps is an acute infectious respiratory disease caused by the mumps virus (MuV), which occurs mainly in children and adolescents. Its main clinical symptoms were parotid gland suppurative...
A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had mumps or been immunized with live mumps vaccine. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
A live attenuated virus vaccine of duck embryo or human diploid cell tissue culture origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of nonpregnant adolescent and adult females of childbearing age who are unimmunized and do not have serum antibodies to rubella. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (Dorland, 28th ed)
A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Antibodies elicited in a different species from which the antigen originated. These antibodies are directed against a wide variety of interspecies-specific antigens, the best known of which are Forssman, Hanganutziu-Deicher (H-D), and Paul-Bunnell (P-B). Incidence of antibodies to these antigens--i.e., the phenomenon of heterophile antibody response--is useful in the serodiagnosis, pathogenesis, and prognosis of infection and latent infectious states as well as in cancer classification.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
An assay is an analytic procedure for qualitatively assessing or quantitatively measuring the presence or amount or the functional activity of a target entity. This can be a drug or biochemical substance or a cell in an organism or organic sample. ...
