Actually, food allergy is an emerging pathology; and egg allergy is the most frequent in childhood. The recommendations for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and influenza vaccination are increasing each year. This implementation increases the exposure of patients with egg allergy to such vaccines. In Spain, since 2004 the only available vaccine for MMR is grown in cultures of fibroblast from chick embryos; previously, patients with egg allergy were vaccinated with an alternative vaccine…

Recommendations for the administration of influenza vaccine in children allergic to egg

Although egg-free flu vaccines are expected to be available for this season, the provision of sufficient amounts of this vaccine cannot be guaranteed at the time of writing, and a pragmatic strategy for the safe immunisation of children with egg allergy is required.

Safe Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine Administration in Atopic Children with High Levels of Egg White-Specific IgE Antibody

The measles, mumps and rubella vaccine can be safely administered ambulatory to children with atopic dermatitis allergic to eggs, according to this clinical experience vaccinating egg allergic patients with a regular triple viral vaccine.

Recent advances in the understanding of egg allergens: basic, industrial, and clinical perspectives.

Pilot studies have suggested that oral immunotherapy with raw or cooked preparations of egg may represent a safe alternative, immediately available to allergic subjects, but remains applicable to only nonanaphylactic patients.

It is important to note that mortality figures likely underestimate the influence the impact of influenza infection, due to inherent difficulties in assigning causes of death appropriate disease classification (ICD) codes.



Safety of measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR) in patients allergic to eggs.

Abstract Introduction Since the measles and mumps components used in MMR vaccine are grown in cultures of fibroblast from chick embryos, for a long time there have been concerns about the presence of

Recommendations for using MMR vaccine in children allergic to eggs

The evidence for egg as the agent responsible for allergic reactions to MMR or measles vaccine is reviewed and recommended based on the evidence and the arguments presented also apply to the single mumps vaccine and all other vaccines derived from egg.

Safe administration of the measles vaccine to children allergic to eggs.

The MMR vaccine can be safely administered in a single dose to children with allergy to eggs, even those with severe hypersensitivity, and none had an immediate or delayed adverse reaction.

The safety of inactivated influenza vaccine in adults and children with asthma.

The inactivated trivalent split-virus influenza vaccine is safe to administer to adults and children with asthma, including those with severe asthma, and all those with asthma should receive the vaccine annually.

Comparative analysis of six European influenza vaccines

Differences in influenza antigen variety in currently available vaccines may affect efficacy, whereas differences in concentrations of nonviral compounds such as ovalbumin and endotoxin may lead to different postvaccination reactogenicity profiles.
