04/18/2013 - "Nevertheless, natural immunity against CMV provides some protection against infection and disease, natural history studies have defined the serological and molecular biological techniques needed for endpoints in future clinical trials of vaccines and CMV is not highly communicable, suggesting that it may not be necessary to achieve very high levels of population immunity through vaccination in order to affect transmission. "
06/01/2011 - "By taking into account the leading role of specific cellular immunity in the development of protection against the majority of dangerous and extremely dangerous infections of bacterial, viral, and rickettsial nature, the study of the above immunity should be considered as most important on estimating the body's immunological rearrangement when vaccines against respective infections are administered. "
09/01/2006 - "Preventive vaccines against HPVs 16 and 18 have been developed, and in phase III clinical trials they have demonstrated 100% efficacy for prevention of persistent infection and high risk cervical squamous intraepithelial neoplasias positive for these HPV types, suggesting that these vaccines, if made widely available, will dramatically reduce the burden of CC."
02/01/2004 - "With the use of a virtually identical study design, vaccines against Hib were shown to be highly effective in preventing invasive Hib infections but were not effective in preventing invasive infections due to S. "
01/01/2015 - "Subcutaneous vaccination with the GP-based vaccines provided significant protection against subsequent pulmonary infection with highly virulent strains of C. neoformans and C. gattii. "

8. Immunoglobulin G (IgG)IBA
03/01/1990 - "Protection against infection correlated with rotavirus antibody, most significantly (P = .005) serum rotavirus IgG. In this study, 20 previously challenged subjects were reinoculated with the same virus 9-12 months after their initial challenge. "
01/23/2006 - "The B cell-deficient mice displayed impaired T cell priming and dramatically reduced IFN-gamma production, and these deficits were normalized by infection with IgG-opsonized parasites. "
01/01/1998 - "In pregnant women, measurement of the IgG avidity may help to date a HCMV infection, an AI > 65% highly suggests a past infection while an AI < 50% corresponds to a recent primary infection."
08/01/1990 - "High-dose intravenous immunoglobulin therapy is highly effective in PRCA associated with parvovirus B19 infections and impaired IgG-antibody response. "
01/01/2007 - "This review highlights findings from international studies and demonstrates that: (i) SCIG therapy is safe, with very few adverse effects; (ii) the therapy can be used for patients with previous adverse effects to intravenous administration of IgG; (iii) the therapy leads to high serum IgG levels and good protection against infections; (iv) the therapy facilitates home therapy, as the infusion technique is easy for children, adults and elderly people to learn and there is no need for venous access; (v) SCIG home therapy leads to significantly improved life situations for the patients; (vi) the SCIG home therapy regimen in particular reduces the costs of treatment."
