  1. Fulltext. The risk of measles, mumps, and varicella among young adults : a serosurvey of US navy and marine corps recruits.

    Article - En anglais



    To assess the risk of epidemic transmission and to guide immunization policy, the seroprevalence of antibody to measles, mumps, and varicella was determined in a group of young adults.


    A cross-sectional study of 1533 US navy and marine corps recruits was conducted in june 1989.

    Antibody status was determined with commercially available enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays.


    Direct sex and race adjustement to the 15-to 29-year-old US population resulted in seronegativity rates of 17.8% for measles, 12.3% for mumps, and 6.7% for varicella.
