  Purpose
Disturbances of acquired immunity are considered to be responsible, at least partly, for the high infection rate and inadequate response to vaccinations observed in hemodialysis (HD) patients and renal transplant recipient (RTR). The present prospective trial aims at (a) evaluating the immunogenicity of a standard influenza vaccine in HD and RTR patients and (b) at identifying determinants of the immune response.

Condition Intervention Phase
Hemodialysis Renal Transplantation Biological: trivalent split influenza vaccine Phase 4

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Seroprotection rate, defined as the percentage of patients with an HI antibody titer ≥ 40,

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Seroresponse rate, defined as the percentage of patients with a fourfold rise in HI titer after vaccination; impact of booster vaccination on the immune response, and safety of influenza vaccination.

Enrollment: 407
Study Start Date: September 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2004
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: influenza vaccination
All participants received a standard dose of 0.5 ml commercially available trivalent split influenza vaccine (Vaxigrip®, Aventis Pasteur MSD) by intramuscular injection. The vaccine contained 15 μg hemagglutinin of each of the following influenza strains: A/ New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1), A/ Panama/2007/99 (H3N2), and B/Shangdong/7/97, recommended by WHO as components of the influenza vaccine for the epidemic season 2003/2004.
Biological: trivalent split influenza vaccine
