- Brief summaryHypo- or dysgammaglobulinemia, caused by several primary immunodeficiency syndromes, usually leads to recurrent infections. Vaccination to prevent these infections in general does not result in an adequate generation of protective antibodies in this category of patients. However, for prevention of influenza virus infection, besides protective antibodies T-cell responses have been shown to prevent this infection or to reduce the severity of influenza virus infection.
Although in a number of the primary immunodeficiency syndromes causing hypo- or dysgammaglobulinemia B-cell dysfunction may accompanied by reduced T-cell responses, and treatment with intravenous immunoglobulins alters cellular immunity, no studies have been performed on vaccination against influenza with the currently used subunit vaccines in this category of patients.
In this context, of patients unable to produce protective antibodies, but possibly capable of eliciting protective T-cell responses to influenza virus, we designed a study protocol to determine the cellular immune response following influenza vaccination in patients with hypo- or dysgammaglobulinemia and to determine the usefulness of administering influenza vaccine to this category of patients.
Humoral and T-cell responses will be determined by several proven methods in patients with hypo- or dysgammaglobulinemia at three time points following vaccination with influenza virus subunit vaccine for the season 2006-2007, and compared with the responses measured in healthy controls. A number of 50 patients and 50 matched healthy controls will be included. Patients will be stratified according to the treatment with intravenous immunoglobulins. The two questions to be answered are:
1. Is vaccination with trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine in hypo- and dysgammaglobulinemic patients useful; elicit these patients adequate T-cell responses after influenza vaccination?
2. Is the cellular response dependent on IVIG substitution therapy?
