  Purpose

A growing number of patients with Crohn's disease are treated with immunosuppressive agents, such as anti-tumor necrosis factor blockers and immunomodulators. Several recent studies have indicated that immunosuppressive treatment may impair the immunological response to pneumococcal vaccination in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and Ulcerative colitis). One of weaknesses in the previous studies did not focus on specific disease, such as Crohn's disease. In addition, predictive factors affecting impaired response following pneumococcal vaccination have not clearly evaluated in patients with Crohn's disease. In this study, patients with Crohn's disease will be assessed for serological response to pneumococcal vaccination. Further, potential predictive factors that impact on vaccination outcomes and adverse events related to vaccination will be evaluated.

Further study details as provided by Kyunghee University Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Serological response rates [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serological response rates, defined by number of patients showing adequate response to pneumococcal vaccination (at least a 2-fold increase in antipneumococcal antibodies in the serum compared with baseline)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety assessment of the vaccine [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    adverse events related to vaccine administration, including worsening of Crohn's disease activity by changes in Harvey-Bradshaw index (HBI) and inflammatory markers


Estimated Enrollment: 172
Study Start Date: December 2011

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients over the age of 18
  • Informed consent
  • Patients who had a definitive diagnosis of Crohn's disease for more than 6 months (documented by the standard clinical, radiographic, endoscopic, and histopathologic criteria)

Exclusion Criteria:
