Influenza Vaccination in Bone Marrow Transplantation
The purpose of this study is to determine whether influenza vaccination protects patients who receive a certain type of bone marrow transplantation.
Biological: inactivated split-virus influenza vaccine
|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Immunogenicity of Influenza Vaccination (Flu Vac) in Patients Receiving Nonmyeloablative Allogeneic Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation (NM Allo PBSCT) Compared to Healthy Controls|
- Is the influenza vaccine immunogenic in patients receiving nonmyeloabalative allogeneic PBSCT compared to healthy controls as judged by their humoral antibody response?
|Study Start Date:||October 2002|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||April 2003|
Patients who receive bone marrow transplantation are at high risk for complications from influenza infection. It is not whether influenza vaccination protects patients who undergo a type of bone marrow transplantation called "nonmyeloablative", or "reduced intensity" bone marrow transplantation. This study compares the response to influenza vaccination in a group of these patients to that in healthy people.
