MedImmune to present 4 abstracts on RSV and influenza at 47TH Annual IDSA Meeting
Date:10/30/2009

p>BACKGROUND: In September 2007, the approval of live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) was expanded for use in children between 24 and 59 months in age. The vaccine was not approved for use in children younger than 24 months, or for use in children with asthma or recurrent wheezing, or those with altered immunocompetence. This study evaluates the usage and safety of the vaccine in those patient populations younger than 59 months of age that were not in the approved indication. The study found that healthcare providers appear to be complying with the indications for the use of LAIV in children <5 years, and no adverse safety outcomes were detected in the small number of children in unapproved groups who received the vaccine.

  • Whole Genome Transcriptional Analysis of the Early Immune Responses Induced by Live Attenuated and Inactivated Influenza Vaccines in Young Children Zhu W, et al. Poster Session: October 31, 2009; 12:30-2:00 PM; Hall A / Poster #1181

    BACKGROUND: This study examined the early genomic immune response to live attenuated and inactivated vaccines in previously unvaccinated children 12 to 35 months of age. Among LAIV recipients, an increase in interferon (a natural anti-viral immune protein) production was seen, which may partly explain previous clinical study observations of LAIV-induced protection against illness in the first 2 weeks after administration.

  • Influenza-Associated Antibiotic Use in Children Receiving Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Compared With Inactivated Influenza Vaccine Belshe R, et al. Poster Session: October 31, 2009; 12:30-2:00 PM; Hall A / Poster #1180

    BACKGROUND: Influenza illness in children commonly results in the unnecessary use of prescription antibiotics. This analysis evaluated the efficacy of live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) and trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) in preventing antibiotic use in children ranging from six months to 17 years in age.
