Abstract

OLIVEIRA, Solange Artimos de et al. Antimeasles antibodies in children submitted to different vaccination schedules. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 1993, vol.26, n.2, pp.77-82. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86821993000200002.

ln order to study the measles antibody behavior of three vaccination schedules, 684 children were divided into 4 Groups: Group A (341 vaccinated children under the age of one); Group B (101 children at the age of one); Group C (74 children under the age of one and one at the age of one); Group D (163 unvaccinated children with a history of measles in the past - Group control). Children of Group A presented lower rates and 25.9% of the age group under two did not show any measles antibodies. In Group B, all the children presented antibodies. In Group C onby 4.0% did not. In all age groups, the geometric mean HI antibody titers of Group A were lower than the valuesfound in the other groups. The age at vaccination was the factor of greater influence on the results of this study.
