BACKGROUND To determine the rate of seroconversion after 2 doses of a novel split virion, inactivated, adjuvanted pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine (A/California/7/2009) in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected patients (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT01017172). METHODS Diagnostic study of adult HIV-1-infected patients scheduled for H1N1 influenza A(More)
Seroconversion rates following influenza vaccination in patients with hematologic malignancies after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are known to be lower compared to healthy adults. The aim of our diagnostic study was to determine the rate of seroconversion after 1 or 2 doses of a novel split virion, inactivated, AS03-adjuvanted pandemic(More)
BACKGROUND Immune response rates following influenza vaccination are often lower in HIV-infected individuals. Low vitamin D levels were correlated with weak immune response in cancer patients and are known to be lower in HIV-infected patients. METHODS Diagnostic study to determine immune response against the H1N1v component after a single, intramuscular(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine rates of seroconversion after single vaccination with a novel split virion, inactivated, adjuvanted pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine (A/California/7/2009) in HIV-1-infected patients (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01017172). DESIGN Single center diagnostic study. SETTING Institutional HIV outpatient department of an urban(More)
The immune response after influenza vaccination is impaired in HIV-infected individuals and can be enhanced by a second dose. The durability of the antibody protection and its clinical benefit is not known. We investigated clinical symptoms and antibody titres against H1N1 influenza A following no dose, 1 dose, or 2 doses of an ASO3-adjuvanted H1N1 vaccine(More)
INTRODUCTION Since the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) (1) and later on the availability of anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody treatment (2), the therapeutic options as well as the prognosis of AIDS related lymphoma (ARL) have been improved. There is however no uniform agreement on how to treat patients who do not achieve a partial(More)
