Lack of Association of Guillain-Barré Syndrome With Vaccinations

Background. Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute polyradiculoneuropathy, thought to be an autoimmune process. Although cases of GBS have been reported following a wide range of vaccines, a clear association has only been established with the 1976 H1N1 inactivated influenza vaccine. Methods. We identified hospitalized GBS cases from Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC...

Protective Association Between Rotavirus Vaccination and Childhood Seizures in the Year Following Vaccination in US Children

Background. Rotavirus illness has been linked to childhood seizures. We investigated whether a protective association exists between receipt of rotavirus vaccine and being hospitalized or visiting the emergency department for seizures in the year after vaccination. Methods. We retrospectively analyzed a cohort of children born after 28 February 2006 (when rotavirus vaccine was...

Recurrent Guillain-Barré Syndrome Following Vaccination

Background. Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute polyradiculopathy, thought to be autoimmune, which has been reported following vaccinations. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends not administering influenza vaccine to individuals who have had a history of GBS within 6 weeks of a prior influenza vaccination if they are not at high risk of severe...

Preterm Infants' T Cell Responses to Inactivated Poliovirus Vaccine

Background The antigen-specific T cell responses of preterm infants to immunization are not well understood. The aim of the present study was to compare the T cell responses of preterm infants after inactivated poliovirus vaccination with those of term infants. Methods We prospectively enrolled 2-month-old preterm (gestational age, ⩽33 weeks) and term (gestational age, ⩾37 weeks...
