It is important that the clinician gives adequate and relevant information to the laboratory. In return the laboratory will comment on the ﬁndings and advise regarding additional samples. Laboratory testing is also performed in order to establish the immunity status of an individual. The methods used for screening (IgG tests) may be different from those used for establishing the diagnosis in acute infection (IgM test or paired sera examination). The clinician should therefore always state the clinical problem.
This latter problem may well apply to the development of HIV vaccines. ACTIVE IMMUNIZATION Vaccines are preparations, administered either orally or parenterally, which stimulate a protective speciﬁc immune response in the recipient without themselves causing disease. g. hepatitis B) it is necessary to add an adjuvant which non-speciﬁcally potentiates the immune response. Adjuvants, usually aluminium salts, can also delay the release of vaccine material from the injection site. In principle there are two main types of viral vaccines available, namely the attenuated live virus vaccine and the nonreplicating (‘killed’) variety.
As a rule, it appears that asymptomatic HIV-infected individuals can be offered virus vaccines. EPIDEMIOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES OF MASS VACCINATION If an individual beneﬁts from being immunized it is often assumed that the overall effect on society at large will be equally beneﬁcial. This may not, however, always be the case. The reason for this is that we are changing aspects of herd immunity and it may not be possible to precisely anticipate the shift of susceptible cohorts. g. measles). A special case is the use of rubella vaccine: if only a low but still signiﬁcant fraction of children and teenagers is immunized, there is a possibility, through the consequent reduced spread of wild-type virus in the community, of accumulating more susceptible women at childbearing age, and thus possibly increasing the incidence of congenital rubella syndrome.
