|Title:||Comparison of immunoglobulin G subclass concentrations in severe community-acquired pneumonia and severe pandemic 2009 influenza A (H1N1) infection.||Austin Authors:||Gordon, Claire L ;Holmes, Natasha E ;Grayson, M Lindsay ;Torresi, Joseph ;Johnson, Paul D R ;Cheng, Allen C;Charles, Patrick G P||Affiliation:||Department of Infectious Diseases, Austin Health, Melbourne, Australia||Issue Date:||11-Jan-2012||Publication information:||Clinical and Vaccine Immunology : Cvi 2012; 19(3): 446-8||Abstract:||We compared immunoglobulin G (IgG) subclasses in patients with severe noninfluenza community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) to those in patients with severe pandemic 2009 influenza (H1N1) virus infection. Low IgG1 and IgG2 levels occurred often in the CAP group; however, H1N1 patients had lower IgG1 and IgG2 levels (5.4 versus 3.3 g/liter [P = 0.008] and 2.5 versus 1.2 g/liter [P < 0.001], respectively). Low IgG2 levels may be specifically linked to severe H1N1; however, it is not clear whether this association is related to H1N1 or to other features of severity.||Gov't Doc #:||22237894||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/11419||DOI:||10.1128/CVI.05518-11||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22237894||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Adolescent
