Two of the most common viruses of this nature are the measles and the mumps. These are considered childhood diseases that can be prevented for the most part through vaccination. After a person has had the mumps, their bodies develop immunity so that it does not occur again. Or at least another outbreak of it is extremely rare. Although, one may get the mumps as a result of not being vaccinated, we need to question the following: As the body develops an immunity or as it creates antibodies, do these antibodies actually prevent other life threatening diseases from occurring also? A vaccine that is supposedly a life long preventative will cause the body to create antibodies against a virus, as to prevent a particular disease or illness. So the vaccine does what it is intended to do and is not a bad thing, if it does just that. However, if a vaccine is not given and someone as a child or teen develops the mumps, were the antibodies that developed to eliminate and remove the virus from the body(without being given a vaccine) in fact the reason for an improved and strong immune system due to the development of CD8 T-Cells, which are also called memory cells because they are in the body as antigens in effect to "recognize" a disease or pathogen to eliminate it from the body? If the body is unable to "recognize" a disease or distinguish it from other illnesses it becomes impaired in defense to rid the body of it by the immune system. Afterwards of a mumps infection, the body develops an antigen to "recognize" diseases or illnesses that affect the lymph glands, or inflammation due to meningitis. This may be because the CD8 memory T-Cells are able to prevent another type of disease due to their response to the infection because the T-Cells begin to remove the virus from the body. If this were a possibility then it could mean that those childhood diseases of infection, that went without vaccination thus created immunity by way of CD8 memory T-Cells that are able to remove the onset of other diseases and or viruses due to the T-Cells "recognizing" a pathogen as a disease and then being able to effectively remove if from the body. Paramyxoviridae Viruses- the golden antigen!
