Non-adjuvanted 2009 influenza A (H1N1)v vaccine in pregnant women: the results of a French prospective descriptive study

E OmonB Escourrou


In 2009, during the influenza A (H1N1)v pandemic, the French Health authorities recommended influenza immunisation for pregnant women because of the higher risk of serious influenza outcomes in that population. Thus, the non-adjuvanted inactivated influenza vaccine Panenza(®) was administered to French women from the second trimester of pregnancy. Several studies suggest that inactivated seasonal influenza vaccines are safe during pregnancy but there are few data about the effects of new A (H1N1)vaccines (new antigen) on pregnant women. The aim of the present prospective study was to describe pregnancy outcomes among women vaccinated with non-adjuvanted influenza vaccines in South Western France. the study ran from November 2009 to February 2010 and included, on a voluntary basis, pregnant women who were vaccinated against A (H1N1) influenza in vaccination clinics or maternity wards. 569 pregnant women were monitored until delivery. Compared with the general population, the risks of maternal conditions, malformations and neonatal conditions were not statistically different. This study does not reveal any sign of safety concerns regarding the effects of the vaccine on pregnancy outcomes.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
