The overall goal of this study is to study influenza vaccine responses in HIV infected individuals. Immunocompromised individuals require special protection from influenza, but may not respond appropriately to the standard killed vaccine. Patients who receive the H1N1 flu vaccine as part of their standard of care will be asked to donate blood samples for immunologic studies. These studies will determine whether participants were able to produce the appropriate antibodies to the vaccine and possibly identify predictors of vaccine responsiveness.
Our hypothesis is that vaccine responsiveness to the new H1N1 influenza vaccine will be compromised in HIV infected patients.

The purpose of this study is to describe the immune response to a novel H1N1 influenza vaccination in healthy adults, and to understand the factors that allow healthy adults to respond to ...
H1N1, one of the most prevalent influenza A virus subtypes affecting the human population, can cause infections varying from mild respiratory syndrome to severe pneumonia. The current H1N1 vaccine nee...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of influenza immunization to evoke a protective immune response among children with cancer. We evaluated 75 children with cancer who received influenz...

Inflammation of brain parenchymal tissue as a result of viral infection. Encephalitis may occur as primary or secondary manifestation of TOGAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; HERPESVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ADENOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; FLAVIVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; BUNYAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PICORNAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PARAMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; and ARENAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS.
Viral infections of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid space. TOGAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; FLAVIVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RUBELLA; BUNYAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORBIVIRUS infections; PICORNAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RHABDOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ARENAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; HERPESVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ADENOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; JC VIRUS infections; and RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS may cause this form of meningitis.

Swine Flu - H1N1 influenza - H7N9
Swine flu is the common name given to a relatively new strain of influenza (flu) that caused a flu pandemic in 2009-2010. It is also referred to as H1N1 influenza (because it is the H1N1 strain of virus). The H1N1 flu virus will be one of the main vi...
