Immunogenicity and tolerability of an inactivated and adjuvanted pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine, in HIV-1-infected patients.Vaccine. 2011 Feb 04; 29(7):1359-63.V
We evaluated the efficacy and tolerability of a single dose of the split virion AS03-adjuvanted pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine (A/California/7/2009) in 84 HIV-1 infected individuals. Antibody titers were determined by hemagglutination inhibition assay and by microneutralization. Vaccine was well tolerated. At 21 days post vaccination, 56 (67%) patients had seroconverted. There was no correlation between baseline CD4 cell count (p=0.539) or HIV viral load (p=0.381) and immune response. Other vaccine strategies should be evaluated in this HIV population, to improve response rates.
