 A double-blind, placebo-controlled animal study suggests that vaccination with seasonal influenza vaccine did, in fact, worsen symptoms after subsequent exposure to H1N1 flu, researchers found. The 16 ferrets vaccinated against seasonal influenza experienced significantly greater weight loss -- 7.4% versus 5.2% for the 16 ferrets given placebo (P=0.02), Danuta Skowronski, MD, a fellow in epidemiology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and her colleagues reported here at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.
