The aim of this study was to evaluate post-heart transplantation (Htx) response to two-dose and three-dose influenza vaccine. Hemagglutination inhibition antibodies were monitored in HTx recipients immunized twice (n = 25) or three times (n = 17), and non-HTx controls (n = 8) once, with inactivated influenza vaccine. Post-first dose protective antibody titers (> or = 1:40) were demonstrated in 9/25 (36%) for A/Singapore/ (H1N1), 5/25 (20%) for A/Shanghai/(H3N2) and 2/25 (8%) for B/Yamagata… CONTINUE READING
