Impact of a nurse vaccination program on hepatitis B immunity in a Swiss HIV clinic


Boillat-Blanco, Noémie; Probst, A; Da Costa, V W; Giulieri, S; Bernasconi, E; Calmy, A; Elzi, L; Rauch, A; Weber, R; Bertisch, B; Cavassini, M; Bochud, P Y (2011). Impact of a nurse vaccination program on hepatitis B immunity in a Swiss HIV clinic. Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes, 58(5):472-474.

Abstract

We evaluated the impact of a nurse program for hepatitis B virus vaccination in a center from the Swiss HIV Cohort Study. Immunity (anti-HBs >10 IU/mL) increased from 32% to 76% in the intervention center (n = 238) where vaccine management was endorsed by nurses, but only from 33% to 39% in control centers (n = 2712, P < 0.001) where management remained in charge of physicians. Immunity against HBV in the HIV population is insufficient in Switzerland. Specific nurse vaccination program may efficiently improve health care.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
