However, there is abundant evidence that many vaccines elicit an excellent protection against disease. Thus, the actual infection may take place, and possibly generate a beneficial booster immune response. The infection will nevertheless be quickly aborted due to the immunological recall of the 38 vaccine-induced memory, and/or because of some level of pre-existing active immunity not necessarily located at the site of viral entry. A good example of such a case is the use of inactivated poliovaccines that in some Scandinavian countries has managed to eliminate poliomyelitis, even if the post-vaccination intestinal immunity has been low or absent.

Potential problems HIV No vaccine exists. Retrovir and the other dideoxynucleoside analogues, non-nucleoside inhibitors and also protease inhibitors have only limited efficacy. The virus is worldwide and spreading rapidly in Asia and drugresistant viruses are emerging Drug resistance Influenza Drug resistance Epidemics occur yearly resulting in serious morbidity and death in ‘at risk’ groups. The vaccine is not 100% effective. Periodically worldwide pandemics sweep the world. Two new antiNA drugs have been licensed recently to join the M2 blocker amantadine (Lysovir) Human herpes viruses (HHV1–8) No vaccines exist.

Blood and tissue donors must be screened for HBsAg and anti-HBc and for anti-HCV. Immunity status is determined in high-prevalence or high-risk groups before vaccination against hepatitis B, or before vaccination or the repeated use of normal immunoglobulin to prevent hepatitis A. Erythema infectiosum. The clinical diagnosis may be uncertain, especially in non-epidemic periods. When parvovirus B19 infection is suspected in pregnancy. Cases of arthralgia. Meningitis, encephalitis and other severe disorders of the nervous system require microbiological and serological examinations to establish the aetiology.
