The development of vaccination is a major achievement in modern medicine. However, children treated with immunosuppression may not at all, or only in part, receive routine immunization due to uncertainty of its risks and effect. There is a substantial lack of pediatric studies concerning the efficacy and safety of vaccination in this patient group. Experience from similar adult groups and children with HIV infection can be used as a model for other disease categories. With increasing knowledge… Expand
Vaccination of the solid organ transplant recipient.
TLDR
The general recommendations for vaccinations of adult transplant recipients and candidates are summarized, including special considerations for household contacts and health care workers. Expand
Vaccination for the paediatrician
TLDR
The aim of this article is to update paediatricians on vaccination recommendations and relevant reference sources and the use of individual vaccines in children with special vaccination requirements. Expand
Update on Immunizations in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients: What Clinicians Need to Know
  • R. Avery, M. Michaels
  • Medicine
  • American journal of transplantation : official journal of the American Society of Transplantation and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons
  • 2008
TLDR
Although randomized controlled trials in transplant recipients have not been performed for most new licensed vaccines, preliminary recommendations can be formulated based on current data and guidelines, and it will be important to determine the indications and optimal timing of newer immunizations and immunization strategies.

Immunization of high-risk paediatric populations: Central European Vaccination Awareness Group recommendations
TLDR
An expanded initiative from the Central European Vaccination Awareness Group aims to raise awareness of the different high-risk paediatric groups, differentiate them according to their specific risk, and formalise a guidance statement for the immunization of each population. Expand
Optimizing immunization in pediatric special risk groups
TLDR
The article uses four special risk groups (acute lymphoblastic leukemia; preterm birth; juvenile idiopathic arthritis; and inflammatory bowel disease), to highlight the management considerations and potential vaccination strategies. Expand
The effect of anti-TNF treatment on the immunogenicity and safety of the 7-valent conjugate pneumococcal vaccine in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
TLDR
Children receiving anti-TNF treatment and vaccinated with PCV7 achieved a significantly lower GMTs against serotypes 4, 14 and 23F, and no patient developed vaccine-associated serious adverse events or disease flares. Expand
Pneumococcal Vaccination in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
TLDR
Children with JIA had an adequate response to pneumococcal vaccine and the response was influenced by MTX and prednisone treatment. Expand
Vaccines against intracellular bacterial pathogens.

TLDR
The development of vaccines against intracellular bacterial pathogens has proven to be more challenging, partly due to the problems associated with the identification of protective antigens and partly with the difficulties associated with inducing CD8(+) T cell responses. Expand
Survivors of childhood cancer: An Australian audit of vaccination status after treatment
TLDR
The aim of this study was to describe the compliance of post‐chemotherapy revaccination of childhood cancer survivors relative to current Australian guidelines. Expand
Protective Immunity to Listeria Monocytogenes Infection Mediated by Recombinant Listeria innocua Harboring the VGC Locus
TLDR
Rational vaccine design whereby avirulent strains are equipped with the capabilities to induce protection but lack detrimental inflammatory effects offer great promise towards future studies using non-pathogenic bacteria as vectors for vaccination. Expand

Immunization of children after solid organ transplantation.
TLDR
Rational guidelines for vaccination of children with susceptibilities caused by immunosuppression in patients with HIV or cancer or patients who have undergone bone marrow transplant are provided. Expand
Use of Licensed Vaccines for Active Immunization of the Immunocompromised Host
TLDR
It is suggested that for most vaccines there are little or no efficacy data in those with impaired immunity but their use in this patient group is generally safe. Expand
Immunisation of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus: the current state of play
TLDR
It remains uncertain whether the immune response to immunisation is significantly impaired by active disease and/or immunosuppressive treatment and to what extent, and most patients seem to mount a satisfactory immune response though this may not be quantitatively and qualitatively the same as healthy controls.

TLDR
A few observational studies provide evidence that vaccination has contributed significantly, at least in the western hemisphere, to the low prevalence of vaccine-preventable diseases among children with CRF. Expand

TLDR
Recipients of solid-organ transplantation are at risk of severe infections due to their life-long immunosuppression and should be given primary immunizations, as early as possible during the course of disease. Expand

TLDR
This paper attempts to review what is known about correlates of vaccine-induced protection, and finds that particular levels of antibodies can be identified that confer protection most of the time. Expand

TLDR
The possible link between vaccines and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), namely two aspects of this inter-relationship: the occurrence of SLE following vaccination and outcome of immunization of known SLE patients. Expand
Immunization in children with chronic renal failure
TLDR
In conclusion, monitoring and administration of the vaccines by the renal team enabled a high immunization rate, and whether vaccines, as documented by antibody titers, or by the low prevalence in the general population promoted thelow prevalence of infections remains open. Expand
