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 spread of Influenza H1N1 has prompted the development of vaccines against this virus. IBD patients are at increased risk of developing complications of Influenza H1N1. The efficacy and...
The patients of pediatric haemato-oncology have a higher risk for novel H1N1 influenza infection than general population, and they are strongly recommended to receive novel H1N1 vaccinatio...
This was a randomized, laboratory-blinded study in healthy male and non-pregnant female designed to investigate the safety, reactogenicity, and immunogenicity of an inactivated influenza H...
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 ...
A cohort of 4000 community-dwelling adults is followed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Finnish national A(H1N1)v influenza vaccination campaign in preventing the first episode of labo...
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...
In addition to vaccines' specific effects, vaccines may have non-specific effects (NSEs) altering the susceptibility to unrelated infections. Non-live vaccines have been associated with negative NSEs....
Several European countries have observed an association between narcolepsy and H1N1 vaccines containing AS03 adjuvant in children/adolescents. In Taiwan, a nationwide campaign starting November 2009 a...
Cross-sectional studies show a lower health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in individuals with narcolepsy. We aimed to describe changes in HRQoL after two years of multidisciplinary follow-up in a co...
Incidence rates of narcolepsy diagnoses in Taiwan, Canada, and Europe: The use of statistical simulation to evaluate methods for the rapid assessment of potential safety issues on a population level in the SOMNIA study.
Vaccine safety signals require investigation, which may be done rapidly at the population level using ecological studies, before embarking on hypothesis-testing studies. Incidence rates were used to a...

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...
