Antibody Titer Analysis After H1N1 Vaccination in Pediatric Haemato-oncology Patients

2014-08-27 03:16:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 vaccination. However, there is no previous data to answer how the efficacy and effectiveness of novel H1N1 vaccination is in patients of pediatric haemato-oncology. This study is designed to investigate the antibodies titers before and after the novel H1N1 influenza vaccination in these patients. Titer of H1N1 influenza virus antibodies will be determined by hemagglutinin inhibition assay (HAI). A HAI titer with a 4-fold rise or greater is defined as seroconversion. Study subjects with seroconversion are regarded as responsiveness to the vaccination. Meanwhile, if the patient presents influenza-like symptoms, we will perform throat swab or nasal swab for influenza rapid test, viral isolation, and novel H1N1 influenza PCR to confirm the diagnosis. After the study, we will be able to know whether or not current novel H1N1 influenza vaccination schedule is adequate and efficient for pediatric haemato-oncology patients.

Description

The emergence of novel H1N1 influenza in 2009 has a great impact to the societies in Taiwan and worldwide. 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 vaccination. However, there is no previous data to answer how the efficacy and effectiveness of novel H1N1 vaccination is in patients of pediatric haemato-oncology. This study is designed to investigate the antibodies titers before and after the novel H1N1 influenza vaccination in these patients. Thus two blood samples will be drawn. The first sample will be collected before the vaccination and the second one will be collected three weeks after the vaccination (If the patient is younger than 9 years old, the third sample will be collected three weeks after the booster vaccination). Titer of H1N1 influenza virus antibodies will be determined by hemagglutinin inhibition assay (HAI). A HAI titer with a 4-fold rise or greater is defined as seroconversion. Study subjects with seroconversion are regarded as responsiveness to the vaccination. We will analyze seroconversion rate as well. Meanwhile, if the patient presents influenza-like symptoms, we will perform throat swab or nasal swab for influenza rapid test, viral isolation, and novel H1N1 influenza PCR to confirm the diagnosis. After the study, we will be able to know whether or not current novel H1N1 influenza vaccination schedule is adequate and efficient for pediatric haemato-oncology patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 1 and neuraminidase 1. The H1N1 subtype was responsible for the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.

Vaccines used to prevent POLIOMYELITIS. They include inactivated (POLIOVIRUS VACCINE, INACTIVATED) and oral vaccines (POLIOVIRUS VACCINE, ORAL).

A suspension of formalin-inactivated poliovirus grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture and used to prevent POLIOMYELITIS.

Vaccines used to prevent infection by viruses in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE. It includes both killed or attenuated vaccines. The composition of the vaccines is changed each year in response to antigenic shifts and changes in prevalence of influenza virus strains. The vaccine is usually bivalent or trivalent, containing one or two INFLUENZAVIRUS A strains and one INFLUENZAVIRUS B strain.

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.
