seroprevalence of measles, mumps and rubella antibodies in luxembourg: results from a national cross-sectional study.a serological prevalence survey was carried out in luxembourg during 2000-2001 to determine the antibody status of the luxembourg population against vaccine-preventable infections. blood samples of children and adolescents were collected prospectively in randomly selected schools. samples of adults were obtained through volunteer patients of the national health laboratory or of the mandatory pre-nuptial test. measles, mumps and rubella (mmr) virus antibody concentrations were measured using comm ...200414979584
genetic variability of measles viruses circulating in the europe measles incidence remains high and in some parts the disease is likely to be still endemic due to insufficient vaccination. luxembourg experienced an outbreak with at least 110 cases in 1996, and cases continued to be reported throughout 1997. we used molecular epidemiology to investigate this apparent endemicity. on the basis of their n gene sequences, the isolates were assigned to the typical european c2 and d6 genotypes. sequence diversity within the outbreak was 0.2%. the nucleotid ...200010795521
