TLDR
Key data on children and adolescents with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection across Europe to inform physicians and health-care service planning during the ongoing pandemic are captured to reflect the current uncertainties regarding specific treatment options. Expand
Comparison of the Efficacy and Safety of Live Attenuated Cold-Adapted Influenza Vaccine, Trivalent, With Trivalent Inactivated Influenza Virus Vaccine in Children and Adolescents With Asthma
TLDR
CAIV-T had a significantly greater relative efficacy compared with TIV in this high-risk population of asthmatic children, and was well tolerated in children and adolescents with asthma. Expand
Three-Year Surveillance of Intussusception in Children in Switzerland
TLDR
This is the first prospective nationwide surveillance of intussusception in childhood using a standardized case definition and most cases occurred beyond infancy, and association with rotavirus gastroenteritis was rare. Expand
Defining Pertussis Epidemiology: Clinical, Microbiologic and Serologic Perspectives
TLDR
Clinical case definitions for specific circumstances have been established by the World Health Organization and the United States Centers for Disease Control, but these are not universally useful, making intercountry comparisons and global evaluation difficult. Expand
Rationale for pertussis booster vaccination throughout life in Europe.
TLDR
Recommendations for use of pertussis booster vaccinations at different ages are proposed to reduce individual morbidity and transmission from present rates and increase herd protection. Expand
A search for serologic correlates of immunity to Bordetella pertussis cough illnesses.
TLDR
The data support historical data indicating that agglutinating antibodies are associated with protection and also recent serologic correlates data and clinical efficacy data which indicate that multicomponent vaccines containing pertactin and fimbriae have better efficacy than PT or PT/FHA vaccines. Expand
Influenza-Associated Myositis in Children
TLDR
Clinical and laboratory findings of IAM are highly characteristic and allow a rapid diagnosis during the influenza season and allow the diagnosis of renal failure in eight patients. Expand
International variation in disease burden of rotavirus gastroenteritis in children with community- and nosocomially acquired infection.
TLDR
The cumulative experience from three European countries suggest that rotavirus is an important cause of diarrhea in Central Europe, but significant local differences clearly demonstrate the need for obtaining national data as a reliable basis for control and prevention of the disease. Expand
Prospective surveillance of hospitalisations associated with varicella-zoster virus infections in children and adolescents
TLDR
A sizeable hospitalisation and complication rate of varicella-zoster virus infections in hospitalised paediatric patients is described and provides a solid basis for future immunisation recommendations in Switzerland. Expand
Guillain-Barré syndrome and Fisher syndrome: case definitions and guidelines for collection, analysis, and presentation of immunization safety data.
TLDR
The Brighton Collaboration GBS Working Group aims to provide a platform for future generations of GBS researchers to explore the role of language in the creative process and the role that language plays in the design ofGES. Expand
