Earlier this month, a Pennsylvania day care center experienced an outbreak of measles. Health officials say cases first started being reported last month at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and they were notified days later of more cases at a nearby day care center. We learned this week that people who traveled through Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Virginia might have been exposed to measles. So, what’s happening with these outbreaks and are Connecticut residents at risk? We asked Dr. Browne about that. We also discussed new information regarding HIV. Researchers at the University of Virginia believe they have solved some of the mystery surrounding the transmission of HIV. A recently published study suggests that a protein produced by the virus may adapt inside the body, allowing it to be transmitted to others. Dr. Browne says this could be the first step in a vaccine!
