Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Serum IgE levels were determined in 41 patients with measles infection. 23 patients (56%) had an increased level (>20%) during the acute phase of the disease in comparison with the recovery phase. 14 showed no change, and decreased levels were observed in 4 patients only. In contrast, both IgG and IgA levels decreased or remained unchanged in the majority of the patients during disease activity. The changes in the pattern of serum immunoglobulins during measles might be attributed to selective depletion of T-cell subpopulations.
