Children and people infected with HIV are particularly susceptible to influenza infections. This study will test the safety and effectiveness of a vaccine for the new H1N1 influenza virus in children and youth infected with HIV.
The new H1N1 influenza virus seen in 2009 has been designated a pandemic by the World Health Organization, due to the sustained community outbreaks seen in the United States and Mexico. Based on preliminary data, it appears children and young adults are particularly at risk of the H1N1 virus. People infected with HIV are also more susceptible to severe influenza infections than those who are uninfected. Children with HIV infection, then, have a compounded risk of H1N1 infection. Higher doses of influenza vaccines are associated with the development of higher levels of serum antibodies, which are needed to resist infection. Higher vaccine doses can be used to improve vaccine effectiveness in at-risk populations. This study will test the safety and immune response of HIV infected children and youth to a high dose of a vaccine for the new H1N1 influenza virus.
Participation in this study will last 7 months and have two steps. The first step involves receiving the first dose of H1N1 virus vaccine, and the second step, occurring 21 days later, involves receiving the second dose of vaccine. Each dose of vaccine will be delivered via two intramuscular shots (four total injections). After receiving each dose of the vaccine, participants will be given a diary to record any symptoms or reactions. Participants will be stratified into three groups by age, including 4 to 9 years, 9 to 18 years, and 18 to 25 years.
Participants will complete five scheduled visits, taking place at screening, study entry, Days 21 and 31, and after 7 months. Measurements taken on these visits will include a medical history, physical and neurological exams, a blood draw, and, when applicable, a pregnancy test. In addition to these visits, participants may receive up to three additional phone calls or visits occurring 2 and 10 days after the first dose of vaccine and 2 days after the second dose of vaccine to check for reactions to the vaccine.

Human influenza is predominantly caused by influenza A virus (IAV) - A/H1N1 and/or A/H3N2 - and influenza B virus (IBV) - B/Victoria and/or B/Yamagata, which co-circulate each season. Influenza survei...
The influenza H1N1 pandemic of 2009-2010, provided a unique opportunity to assess the course of disease, as well as the analysis of risk factors for severe disease in hospitalized children (
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...
As shown during the 2009 pandemic H1N1 [A(H1N1)pdm09] outbreak, egg-based influenza vaccine production technology is insufficient to meet global demand during an influenza pandemic. Therefore, there i...
Influenza A(H1N1) strains were responsible for two pandemics in the last century. As infections early in life may have long-lasting influence on future immune response against other influenza strains,...
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 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 vaccine containing L1 capsid proteins from four types of HPV (ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS), types 6, 11, 16 and 18 that is used to prevent infections from HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUSES of these subtypes.
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.
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.
