Brief Summary

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. By 2030, COPD is expected to be the fourth main cause of death. Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) represents not only a frequent complication but also a deadly cause in COPD patients. Inhaled corticosteroids, which are frequently used among COPD patients increase the risk for pneumonia. The effect of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine 13 (PCV13) on the prevention of pneumococcal pneumonia among COPD patients in Korean population has not been studied yet.

Several factors such as multi-lobar pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa pneumonia, and high pneumonia severity are related to poor outcome of patients with COPD and pneumonia. Prior pneumococcal vaccine has a beneficial effect on outcomes of pneumonia with COPD patients. However, the effects of pneumococcal vaccine on the clinical outcome of COPD patients were evaluated mainly on 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23). The beneficial effects of PPV23 rapidly fade out after inoculation, which is more prominent in old age group. In this sense, PPV23 vaccine is not sufficient in preventing pneumococcal diseases in COPD patients because COPD is the disease of old ages and mortality rate increases exponentially with advancing age. Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine 13 (PCV13) can overcome the waning phenomenon by the production of memory B cells. Although PCV13 is expected to be the best option for the prevention of pneumococcal pneumonia in COPD patients, there are few available studies supporting it.

In this study, we will conduct prospective, multi-center trial with the collaboration of Korean pulmonologists in five university-affiliated hospitals. In this study, we will evaluate influenza and pneumococcal vaccination status, the pathogen distribution, pneumonia severity, and clinical outcomes of hospitalized pneumonia patients with COPD.

If successfully accomplished, this study will enhance the awareness of the preventive use of PCV13 in COPD patients among Korean pulmonologists and, most importantly, it will lead to protection of more COPD patients from pneumococcal pneumonia, one of the most frequent and deadly complication.

Detailed Description
  1. Objectives; Prospective evaluation of distribution of pathogens and its clinical characteristics in hospitalized pneumonia patients with COPD
  2. SUBJECTS AND CENTERS A. Subjects; COPD patients hospitalized for community-acquired pneumonia from Feb, 2017 to Feb, 2018.

    B. Centers; More than five university-affiliated hospitals of Korea

  3. OTHER THERAPY; Treatment for COPD with pneumonia will be done by the disposal of attending physicians of each hospital.
  4. STUDY DESIGN

    ; prospective, multi-center, cohort study

  5. STUDY ANALYSIS A. The required number of COPD patients hospitalized for community-acquired pneumonia

    • The sample size calculations were based on detecting 1 point difference in CURB-65 score between influenza/pneumococcal vaccine recipients and non-recipients (expecting the mean CURB-65 score of 3 points for influenza/pneumococcal vaccine recipients and 4 points for non-recipients), assuming a common standard deviation of 1 point in each group,* a two-tailed test at 5% type I error, and a desired power of 80%. In terms of PCV 13, the estimated sample size for an independent t-test is 90 when we expect that 10% of them were PCV13 recipients and the other 90% were non-recipients (in Korea, 10% of candidates are estimated to be vaccinated with PCV13). Since the CURB-65 scores may not be symmetrically distributed, adding 15% to the required number was considered for a non-parametric test and the desired number of patients with COPD and pneumococcal pneumonia is 104 for the analysis. Total 384 COPD patients admitted for community-acquired pneumonia will be enrolled, assuming 30% prevalence of pneumococcal pneumonia among them (the prevalence of pneumococcal pneumonia is 25~45% in Korea), with allowance of 10% possible data loss.

Parameters to be evaluated A) Demographic data . Age, gender, BMI, smoking status, socioeconomic status B) Past medical history

        . Comorbidities; diabetes, hypertension, malignancy, chronic renal disease, chronic liver disease…

        . Smoking status and amount of smoking by pack-year

        . Vaccination status (types and timing)

        - Will be checked both by history taking and by the review of medical record

        - PCV13, PPV23, Influenza vaccine, Zostavax…. C) Diagnostic tests for the identification of pneumonia pathogens

        . Sputum Gram stain/culture (adequacy will be evaluated with the Bartlett criteria)

        • Sputum PCR test for bacterial pneumonia pathogens

          • Multiplex PCR test designed for the detection of S. pneumoniae, M. pneumoniae, L. pneumophila, H. influenza, B. pertussis, C. pneumoniae
        • Urine antigen test(Binax and SS-UAD) for pneumococcus - two aliquots of the urine sample will be frozen and stored for subsequent shipment to the central laboratory (Pfizer Vaccines Research East and Early Development, Pearl River, PA, USA) for Luminex platform-based multiplex UAD assay testing as described previously (Pride et al. Clin Vaccine Immunol 2012;19:1131-41). Processing, storing and shipping of urine samples will be carried out according to Pfizer protocol. Urine will be tested locally using the commercially-available BinaxNOW® S. pneumoniae antigen test also.

          • Control urine samples will be collected from 400 adults without pneumonia according to the Pfizer urine collecting method and stored for subsequent shipment to the central laboratory (Pfizer Vaccines Research East and Early Development, Pearl River, PA, USA) for Luminex platform-based multiplex UAD assay testing.
        • Two sets of blood culture D) Severity scores
        • Pneumonia severity index (PSI)
        • CURB-65 E) Outcome parameters
        • ICU admission rate
        • Mechanical ventilation rate
        • ICU stay and hospital stay
        • Mortality
  6. SAFETY;

    ; This is an observational study which evaluates the effects of previously inoculated influenza/pneumococcal vaccine. Treatment for pneumonia and COPD will be done by attending physician with their own disposal. In this setting there would not be ethical issues to be debated.

  7. DECISION POINTS/ STATISTICAL METHODS/INTERIM ANALYSIS

    ; The statistics will be purely descriptive. Continuous variables will be presented as mean ± SD or median value with minimum and maximum values. Categorical data will be presented as frequency and percentile. Intergroup comparison of continuous variables will be done with student T test and that of categorical data will be done with Chi-square test or with Fisher's exact test. Statistical significance will be determined at the 5% level. We will consider non-parametric equivalent tests if the distributional assumptions are not suitably made.
