Russian health care workers currently use trivalent influenza vaccines with a strain of a single lineage of type B virus. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the immunogenicity of an adjuvanted quadrivalent inactivated subunit influenza vaccine Grippol Quadrivalent in pediatric population 6 to 17 years old. We compared this new vaccine to a trivalent Grippol Plus vaccine in terms of immunogenicity against certain strains of influenza virus. A multicenter double-blind randomized controlled clinical study was conducted in 440 pediatric subjects (age groups: 6 to 11; 12 to 17 y.o.); 221 subjects received Grippol Quadrivalent, 219 – Grippol Plus. Vaccine immunogenicity was evaluated by seroprotection rate (SPR), seroconversion rate (SCR), geometric mean titer (GMT) of antibodies, and an X-fold rise in antibodies level (↑GMT). Antibodies quantification was done using hemagglutination inhibition assay (HAI) in serial serum dilutions. No significant differences were found between the two vaccines’ performance against A(H1N1), A(H3N2) strains or Victoria B virus. With respect to type A virus, both vaccines satisfied three of CPMP criteria (SPR, SCR, ↑GMT). With respect to Victoria B virus, the two vaccines met but one CPMP criterion (↑GMT). The immunogenicity against Yamagata B virus was evaluated only for Grippol Quadrivalent vaccine which met two of CPMP requirements (SCR, ↑GMT). Our findings suggest that in terms of its prophylactic efficiency, Grippol Quadrivalent vaccine is no inferior to the Grippol Plus one.

Facial fracture management is often complex and demanding, particularly within the pediatric population. Although facial fractures in this group are uncommon relative to their incidence in adult counterparts, a thorough understanding of issues relevant to pediatric facial fracture management is critical to optimal long-term success. Here, we discuss several issues germane to pediatric facial fractures and review significant factors in their evaluation, diagnosis, and management.
