The primary objective of this observational, comparative safety study is to evaluate the safety of the Novartis Pandemic Influenza A (H1N1) vaccine in pregnant women and their off spring, followed for up to 3 months of age as compared to pregnant women who have not received the Novartis Pandemic Influenza A (H1N1) vaccine. This study will be conducted at investigative sites within the Netherlands, Italy and possibly in other countries.

The importance of influenza viruses in respiratory infections in sub-Saharan Africa has been historically overlooked, including in Burkina Faso. This study therefore aimed at evaluating the prevalence...
A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
A study that compares a group of participants receiving an intervention with a similar group from the past who did not.
Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.
