Through increasing measles vaccine coverage, proportion of patients with modified measles has been increasing. They demonstrate low-grade fever with very mild eruptions similar to vaccine-related adverse events. Differentiation between the two pathogenic conditions is required to improve the quality of laboratory-based measles surveillance, In this report, vaccine-specific and wild-type specific primer sets were designed for the loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) in the N gene, and vaccine strains, C1, D3, D4, D5, D8, D9, G3, and H1 wild strains were examined. Three vaccine strains were efficiently amplified using a vaccine-specific primer set with an approximately 10-times higher sensitivity than wild-type primer. Modified measles was differentiated from vaccine-associated cases using this system, but with some limitations for the other genotypes.
