Flu Vaccine Study in Neuromuscular Patients 2011

2014-08-27 04:00:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to compare the immune response of two different injection methods (Intramuscular V.S. Subcutaneous) of the 2011-2012 seasonal Influenza (Flu) vaccine among patients with neuromuscular conditions who have significant muscle degeneration. This research study hypothesizes that the subcutaneous route of vaccine administration, as compared to the intramuscular route, may confer at least comparable, or possibly better, immunogenicity. At least 30 individuals followed by the CCHMC Neuromuscular Comprehensive Care Center will be recruited to participate in this study lasting approximately one to two months with two clinic visits and one follow-up telephone call. Immunogenicity will be assessed by comparing hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) antibody titers obtained pre- and post-vaccination.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.

A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A bacterial vaccine for the prevention of brucellosis in man and animal. Brucella abortus vaccine is used for the immunization of cattle, sheep, and goats.

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had mumps or been immunized with live mumps vaccine. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine.

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
