Infectious Diseases: Tetanus (In the Vaccinated).
Cephalic Tetanus In An ‘Immunized’ Patient A case of cephalic tetanus that occurred in a fully immunized patient is described. An 18-year-old man presented with bilateral facial spasms, without trismus or more generalized involvement...Read more
Infectious Diseases: Diphtheria (In the Vaccinated).

Whooping Cough In The Vaccinated Whooping Cough Increases 49% Since 1980’s In The Vaccinated Despite Increasing Number Of Shots Reported cases of pertussis among adolescents and adults have increased since the 1980s, despite increasingly...Read more
Recombination among human non-polio enteroviruses: implications for epidemiology and evolution
Human enteroviruses (EV) belong to the Picornaviridae family and are among the most common viruses infecting humans. They consist of up to 100 immunologically and genetically distinct types: polioviruses, coxsackieviruses A and B, echoviruses...Read more
Evolution and Emergence of Enteroviruses through Intra- and Inter-species Recombination: Plasticity and Phenotypic Impact of Modular Genetic Exchanges in the 5′ Untranslated Region.
Abstract Genetic recombination shapes the diversity of RNA viruses, including enteroviruses (EVs), which frequently have mosaic genomes. Pathogenic circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV) genomes consist of mutated vaccine poliovirus (PV)...Read more
Common and diverse features of cocirculating type 2 and 3 recombinant vaccine-derived polioviruses isolated from patients with poliomyelitis and healthy children.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Five cases of poliomyelitis due to type 2 or 3 recombinant vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) were reported in the Toliara province of Madagascar in 2005. METHODS: We sequenced the genome of the VDPVs isolated from the...Read more
Recombination between poliovirus and coxsackie A viruses of species C: a model of viral genetic plasticity and emergence.
Abstract Genetic recombination in RNA viruses was discovered many years ago for poliovirus (PV), an enterovirus of the Picornaviridae family, and studied using PV or other picornaviruses as models. Recently, recombination was shown to be a...Read more
Isolation of sabin-like polioviruses from wastewater in a country using inactivated polio vaccine.
Study found vaccine strain polio viruses in the sewerage system in Switzerland. 20 out of 174 waste water samples contained 62 isolates of polio. Three quarters of the strains found had mutated into a virulant type capable of infecting others...Read more
Characterization of four vaccine-related polioviruses including two intertypic type 3/type 2 recombinants associated with aseptic encephalitis.
Polio Virus Has Mutated! Type 2 and Type 3 Vaccine Viruses Have Recombined into a New Form of Polio. Vaccine Viruses Have also Recombined with human enterovirus C to Produce a New Polio. Abstract BACKGROUND: Four vaccine-related polioviruses...Read more
