  1. Measles antibody seroprevalence rates among immunized Inuit, innu and Caucasian subjects.

    Article - En anglais

    Measles antibody seroprevalence was compared in Innu, Inuit, and Caucasian peoples of northern Newfoundland.

    Canada, who were immunized with a single dose of M-M-R-II (Merck Research Laboratories) vaccine.

    Healthy, volunteer schoolchildren (n=606) were enrolled.

    Measles antibody was measured with a whole virus measles-specific IgG EIA.

    Native (Innu and Inuit) schoolchildren (n=253) had a significantly higher seropositive rate (83%) after a single dose of measles vaccine compared to Caucasian (n=353) children (76% ; p=0.025), and higher mean antibody levels after immunization compared to Caucasian children (1.74 EIA units, vs. 1.63 : p=0.06).

    Caucasian children were more likely to have been immunized after age 15 months (20.6% vs. 9.6% ; p=0.001).

    There was no significant difference in the mean time interval between immunization and blood sampling for natives versus Caucasian (8.0 years vs. 7.95 years ; p=0.49).

    After adjustment for time from immunization and age at immunization, there remained a marginally significant racial difference in seropositivity (OR=1.65. 95% Cl 0.96. 2.83. p=0.068).

    The unadjusted odds ratio for seropositivity (comparing natives vs. non-natives, combining negative and equivocal results) was 1.66 (95% Cl 1.06 2.59, p=0.018).

    The higher measles-seropositive rate found among native compared to non-native Canadian children suggests that genetic and/or environmental factor (s) affect circulating antibody levels following immunization. (...)
