Primary Outcome Measures:
  • vaccine effectiveness [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    serum antibody response measured by ELIZA method time frame:1 and 3 months after vaccination

Enrollment: 130
Study Start Date: October 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2010
Primary Completion Date: November 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: intradermal influenza vaccine Biological: intradermal influenza vaccine
0.25ml ,intradermal
Active Comparator: intramuscular influenza vaccine Biological: intramuscular influenza vaccine

Detailed Description:

Hemodialysis patients are at high risk of influenza infection due to suppress immune status.It is recommended to immunize them against influenza intradermal vaccination antigens directly present to the large numbers of antigen-presenting cells in the skin and it may cause greater immunogenicity than in the intramuscular method. Reduced-dose intradermal influenza vaccine is immunogenic in healthy adult, patients with solid cancer and three groups of immunocompromized patients including Rheumatologic patients treated with anti-TNF, HIV-infected and stem cell transplanted patients.

In this study we compare the efficacy of influenza vaccines in half dose intradermal and standard intramuscular methods among hemodialysis patients.
