Safety and Tolerability of Herpes Zoster Vaccine Rheumatologic Patients

Safety and Tolerability of Herpes Zoster Vaccine in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis Immunized prior to biologics and tofacitinib therapy initiation Background The reactivation of varicella zoster virus (VZV) (herpes zoster (HZ)) is of substantial public health concern. Its predilection for the elderly and immunosuppressed make it an important cause of ...

Safety and Immunogenicity of Measles Vaccine Varicella Vaccine and Hepatitis-A Vaccine

Measles vaccine (MV) can reduce childhood mortality and is currently recommended to all South African children aged 6 months. Only one study has examined the safety and immunogenicity of the recommended CAM-70 measles vaccine strain in children under 9 months of age. In addition, there are limited data on the ...

Efficacy Trial of a Vaccine to Prevent Herpes Zoster in Adults Over 40 Years of Age

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a herpesvirus that causes two distinct clinical syndromes.Primary infection is manifested as varicella (chickenpox), whereas reactivation of latent VZV results in a localized eruption known as herpes zoster. More than 99.6% of people 40 years of age orolder had evidence of previous VZV infection. This study ...

Immunity Against Varicella in Pediatric Orthotopic Liver Transplantation Recipients

VZV vaccine given to pediatric liver transplant recipients at least one year after transplantation if tehy fulfill inclusion criteria and give informed consent.

Phase

Tzanck Smear With Methylene Blue Stain for Herpes

A smear from the lesional skin of the patients suspected having Herpes simplex, Herpes zoster and Varicella zoster skin infections will be collected (in a clinical routine setting). The specimen will be stained with methylene blue in addition to the Giemsa stain. Polymerase chain reaction study for herpes antigen will ...

A Comparative Study of FV-100 vs. Valacyclovir for the Prevention of Post-Herpetic Neuralgia

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, active controlled comparative study of the safety and efficacy of 2 dosing regimens of FV-100 versus valacyclovir administered for 7 days in subjects with uncomplicated AHZ(acute herpes zoster). Subjects diagnosed with uncomplicated AHZ within 72 hours of lesion appearance and worst pain of ...

Phase

Development of a Bedside Pain Assessment Kit for Postherpetic Neuralgia

We hypothesize: (a) that a Bedside Sensory Testing Kit for PHN can be designed such that it works efficiently with Subjects and Investigators, is tolerated well by Subjects, and is statistically reliable between Investigators; (b) that the sensory testing kit can distinguish between PHN patients with different sensory qualities to ...

The Natural History of Severe Viral Infections and Characterization of Immune Defects in Patients Without Known Immunocompromise

Viral infections in the normal host are usually self-limited as the innate and acquired immune systems mount successful antiviral responses. However, in some instances, apparently immunocompetent persons manifest infections with viruses that would otherwise be observed only in severely immunocompromised hosts. For example, cases of herpes simplex virus (HSV) encephalitis, ...

The Immunogenicity and Safety of Zostavax in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Using Abatacept

Recently, a live-attenuated vaccine (Zostavax, Merck) to prevent herpes zoster (HZ) has been developed and approved for use among individuals age 50 years or older, regardless of previous HZ or varicella history. In a pivotal study of 38,456 older adults led by Dr. Michael Oxman (a co-investigator in the parent ...

The Superiority of Contralateral Oblique View for Mid-thoracic Epidural Assess

A thoracic epidural assess (block or catheter insertion) is a widely used intervention to reduce pain in patients with postherpetic neuralgia or who underwent chest and upper abdominal surgery. In order to achieve the correct procedure, accurate access to the thoracic epidural space is needed. However, a thoracic epidural assess ...
