  Purpose

Organ transplant patients and staff members at the Transplant Institute have received pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine (Pandemrix) and specific antibody production was measured by haemagglutination inhibition according to the clinical guidelines and policy, respectively. This study retrospectively assessed the immune response after vaccination.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of responders in organ transplant patients and controls

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of >4-fold titre rise in organ transplant patients and controls

Study Start Date: October 2009
Study Completion Date: August 2011
Primary Completion Date: January 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
organ transplant patients Biological: H1N1 vaccine Pandemrix
healthy controls Biological: H1N1 vaccine Pandemrix

Detailed Description:

A total of 100 organ transplant patients and 36 healthy controls were included in the study. All individuals were vaccinated between October and November 2009 and received 2 doses of Pandemrix. Serum samples were collected at baseline before vaccination and 1 month after the first and second vaccination. Individual hemagglutination-inhibiting serum antibody titers were measured.Frequency of > 4 -fold increase in antibody titers and seroconversion from non-protective prevaccination titers to protective postvaccination titers were recorded. Adverse events were reported.
