OBJECTIVES: To estimate the impact that pharmacist immunization programs have on immunization rates. DATA SOURCES: Pubmed, Ovid/Medline, and Google Scholar were searched. References were checked and citation searches using identified studies conducted. STUDY SELECTION: Studies were eligible for the systematic review and meta-analysis if the study compared pharmacist as immunizer versus usual care. Any study design that involved a comparison group was acceptable...

Background. Studies had reported high rate of hepatitis B infection among hospital workers with low participation in vaccination programmes, especially those whose work exposes them to the risk of HBV infection. The study assessed knowledge of hepatitis B virus infection, risk perception, vaccination history, and challenges to control hepatitis among health workers. Methods. A descriptive cross-sectional study. Consenting health care workers completed a self-administered questionnaire that assessed respondents' general knowledge of HBV, vaccination history and HBsAg status, risk perception, and challenges to control hepatitis...

Aluminum-containing salts are important adjuvants in the formulations of many licensed human vaccines. However, in the early stage of the design of a new vaccine, a thorough understanding of the adsorption mechanisms of an antigen onto an aluminum salt is required. Therefore, we have developed a robust, rapid, and reproducible high-throughput screening (HTS) platform to study the adsorption capacity of aluminum-containing vaccines. The adsorption isotherms on aluminum hydroxide and aluminum phosphate of two model proteins, β-casein, and bovine serum albumin, were evaluated using a liquid handling system, which permitted rapid sample preparation in a small volume without nonspecific adsorption...

INTRODUCTION: In France, the « HPST » law of 21 July 2009 assigns new responsibilities to pharmacists. Given the fact that the majority of vaccination coverage targets set by the Public Health Act of August 9, 2004 is not met, the question arises in how far pharmacies in town can contribute to better promotion and accessibility of vaccination. The objective of this investigation was to describe the perception of vaccination by final year pharmacy students and how they see their future professional contribution to improving vaccination coverage...

There is little research on injecting drug use in Nigeria. We investigated the prevalence of HIV, hepatitis B and C, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among male injection drug users (IDUs) in Lagos. Male IDUs (N = 328) were recruited through respondent-driven sampling. Participants completed an interview about their sexual and injecting risk behaviours and were tested for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBV), hepatitis C antibody (HCV), HIV and syphilis, as well as genital chlamydia and gonorrhoea infections...

BACKGROUND: Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha inhibitors and other biologic response modifiers (BRMs) are frequently used to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases. Use of these agents may increase risk of serious infections, malignancies, and other complications such as worsening symptoms of heart failure or demyelinating disease. Because of these risks, a baseline assessment and routine monitoring have been recommended, but standardized guidelines for monitoring have yet to be established...

OBJECTIVE: To review the safety of immunizations in pregnancy. DATA SOURCES: PubMed search using the terms vaccine, immunizations, and pregnancy, as well as current national guidelines. DATA SYNTHESIS: Immunizations for women of childbearing age are an integral component of pregnancy planning. Some vaccines are compatible with pregnancy, whereas others, in particular live-attenuated vaccines, are contraindicated because of the theoretical risk to the fetus...

This study explores these and potential new roles 10 years on. DESIGN: Cross-sectional national study. Postal survey (three mailshots), plus a fourth telephone follow-up using a structured questionnaire based on the 1995 questionnaire. SETTING: Community pharmacies in England...

UNLABELLED: The CDC recommends that all hemodialysis (HD) patients be vaccinated against hepatitis B virus (HBV). In 1999, only 39 of our 134 (29%) HD patients had received HBV vaccine. Since the vaccine is indicated for all HD patients, this presented a drug-related problem (DRP): indication without treatment. In response, nurses and pharmacists initiated a proactive HBV vaccination program. METHODS: An immunization protocol based on then current CDC recommendations was developed...

OBJECTIVE: Hepatitis B vaccination (HBV) is unlike any other immunization series because it can be initiated in the hospital nursery. The objective of this study was to describe how hospital nurseries develop HBV policies and to describe the sources of information used for learning about national HBV recommendations. METHODS: A cross-sectional telephone survey was conducted on a national random sample of nursery medical directors of 290 hospital nurseries representing all 50 states...

Object of this investigation was to evaluate attitudes and opinions of general practitioners, internal specialists and pharmacists with regard to vaccination. At the same time we investigated the actual vaccination state of these groups and of the medical staff and pharmacy staff. Physicians and pharmacists answered by using a four-page written questionnaire. The vaccination state was evaluated by a single-page questionnaire. Analyses were made by using the statistical program SPSS. The 161 physicians and 188 pharmacists participating in this study generally agree that the risk of infection in practice and pharmacy is not significant...
