Injection site lichenoid dermatitis following pneumococcal vaccination. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Dermatol Ther (Heidelb). 2016 Jun ;6(2):287-98. Epub 2016 Mar 17. PMID: 26988991 Abstract Title:  Injection Site Lichenoid Dermatitis Following Pneumococcal Vaccination: Report and Review of Cutaneous Conditions Occurring at Vaccination Sites. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Cutaneous dermatoses and malignancies have occurred at the sites of vaccines.PURPOSE: To describe a man who developed a lichenoid dermatitis at the pneumococcal vaccine injection site and to review cutaneous dermatoses and malignancies occurring at vaccination sites.METHODS: PubMed was used to search the following terms, separately and in combination: adverse, condition, cutaneous, dermatosis, dermatitis, injection, PCV13, pneumococcal, pneumonia, prevnar, reaction, skin, site, vaccination, and vaccine. All papers were reviewed, and relevant manuscripts, along with their reference citations, were evaluated.RESULTS: Several vaccines-including bacillus Calmette-Guerin, hepatitis B, influenza, leishmaniasis, meningitis, pneumococcal, smallpox, tetanus (alone and in combination with diphtheria, pertussis, polio, Haemophilus influenza type B or plague and yellow fever), and varicella-zoster-have been associated with post-vaccination site reactions. A 70-year-old male developed a lichenoid dermatitis that occurred at the pneumococcal vaccine injection site within 2 weeks after PCV13 vaccination; the erythematous nodule resolved spontaneously within 9 weeks following immunization.CONCLUSIONS: Dermatoses at the injection sites of vaccines can be granulomatous, immunity-related conditions, infections, lichenoid, neutrophilic, or pseudolymphomatous. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common vaccination site-associated malignancies; however, melanoma and sarcomas (dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, fibrosarcoma, and malignant fibrous histiocytoma) are also smallpox vaccine-related site neoplasms. A cutaneous immunocompromised district that is created by vaccine-induced local immunologic changes is hypothesized to be the pathogenesis of vaccination site reactions.

Cervical cancers after human papillomavirus vaccination. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Obstet Gynecol. 2009 Feb ;113(2 Pt 2):550-2. PMID: 19155953 Abstract Title:  Cervical cancers after human papillomavirus vaccination. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Current randomized clinical trials have shown that the quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can reduce the morbidity of precancerous lesions associated with HPV infection of vaccine-related subtypes. However, to date, there is no definite evidence showing the vaccine reduces the incidence of invasive cervical carcinoma.CASES: We present two cases--one young, vaccinated woman who developed cervical carcinoma that was unrelated to HPV and another who developed cervical carcinoma secondary to infection with an HPV subtype not covered by the vaccine. Both patients were treated successfully and remained well without evidence of cancer.CONCLUSION: Long-term follow-up data are needed to evaluate the prophylactic effectiveness of the current HPV vaccine. These cases could represent non-vaccine-related HPV infections. Young women must be thoroughly counseled about the efficacy and limitations of the vaccine and about continuing lifelong screening even after vaccination.

Basocellular carcinoma in a smallpox vaccination scar. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Med Cutan Ibero Lat Am. 1988 ;16(2):137-9. PMID: 3050329 Abstract Title:  [Basocellular carcinoma in a smallpox vaccination scar]. Abstract:  A 52 year old housewife was vaccinated against smallpox at the age of 18, on her right deltoid area. At the age of 50 she noticed erythema and scaling on the vaccination scar and 2 years later a nodule appear that enlarged during the following 3 months. There was no history nor skin changes suggestive of significant sun exposure. The histological examination of an initial biopsy and of the subsequently excised lesion revealed a basal cell carcinoma of the solid type. The relevant literature was reviewed and discussed with emphasis on sex and age incidence, age and site of vaccination, free interval between inoculation and tumor appearance, coexistence or not of other sun induced neoplasias and precancerous lesions and other possibly relevant clinical and etiopathogenetic aspects.

Assessing the tumorigenic phenotype of VERO cells in adult and newborn nude mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biologicals. 2008 Jan ;36(1):65-72. Epub 2007 Oct 22. PMID: 17933552 Abstract Title:  Assessing the tumorigenic phenotype of VERO cells in adult and newborn nude mice. Abstract:  VERO cell lines are important substrates for viral vaccine manufacture. The mechanism by which these cells became neoplastically transformed is unknown. During tissue-culture passage, VERO cells can develop the capacity to form tumors. Although at the passage levels (around p140) currently used for vaccine manufacture, VERO cells are non-tumorigenic, questions have been raised about safety issues that might be associated with this capacity to acquire a tumorigenic phenotype. To begin to address these issues, the tumorigenicity of VERO cell lines, derived at different passage levels under different growth conditions, were evaluated in 365-day assays in adult and newborn nude mice. High passage (p>200) VERO cell lines established by random passaging in tissue culture produced tumors in adult (10 out of 27) mice and newborn (21 out of 30) mice, respectively. In contrast, a high passage (p>250) cell line established by passage at sub-confluence produced tumors only in newborn mice (16 out of 30). Progressively growing tumors began forming at 36 days in newborns and at 69 days in adults. Higher tumor incidences and shorter tumor latencies suggest that newborn nude mice may be more sensitive than adults in detecting the expression of a tumorigenic phenotype by some VERO cell lines.

Activation of metastatic potential in African green monkey kidney cell lines by prolonged in vitro culture. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  In Vitro Cell Dev Biol. 1985 Nov ;21(11):649-52. PMID: 4066602 Abstract Title:  Activation of metastatic potential in African green monkey kidney cell lines by prolonged in vitro culture. Abstract:  Studies on the tumorigenicity of Vero kidney cells of Cercopithecus aethiops monkey origin were extended to various passage levels of BSC-1 aneuploid cells and to low passage CV-1 diploid cells (derived also from C. aethiops monkey kidney). It was found that BSC-1 cells -- like Vero cells -- showed increased tumorigenicity with increasing passage level in antithymocyte globulin (ATG) treated newborn rats and in nude mice. Cells passaged over 250 times in cultures formed invasive adenocarcinomas in newborn rats. Their malignant tumor growth was further demonstrated around the 500 passage level when tumor metastases were detected in the lungs of four of the 14 inoculated rats. Vero cells induced such lung metastases in rats already at passage 227. CV-1 diploid cells at low passage level produced small nodules of epithelioid cells in newborn rats at 6th day after inoculation that had disappeared by the 21st day, and caused no local invasion nor lung metastasis. In vitro tumorigenicity tests on BSC-1 and CV-1 cells, using chick embryo skin, human muscle and colony formation in agarose, confirmed the animal test results. The results of this study indicate that BSC-1 and Vero cell lines at low and high passage levels may prove to be useful tools to study the molecular basis of malignancy.

Transmission of yellow fever vaccine virus through breast-feeding. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2010 Feb 12 ;59(5):130-2. PMID: 20150888 Abstract Title:  Transmission of yellow fever vaccine virus through breast-feeding - Brazil, 2009. Abstract:  In April, 2009, the state health department of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, was notified by the Cachoeira do Sul municipal health department of a case of meningoencephalitis requiring hospitalization in an infant whose mother recently had received yellow fever vaccine during a postpartum visit. The Field Epidemiology Training Program of the Secretariat of Surveillance in Health of the Brazilian Ministry of Health assisted state and municipal health departments with an investigation. This report summarizes the results of that investigation, which determined that the infant acquired yellow fever vaccine virus through breast-feeding. The mother reported 2 days of headache, malaise, and low fever occurring 5 days after receipt of yellow fever vaccine. The infant, who was exclusively breast-fed, was hospitalized at age 23 days with seizures requiring continuous infusion of intravenous anticonvulsants. The infant received antimicrobial and antiviral treatment for meningoencephalitis. The presence of 17DD yellow fever virus was detected by reverse transcription--polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in the infant's cerebrospinal fluid (CSF); yellow fever--specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies also were present in serum and CSF. The infant recovered completely, was discharged after 24 days of hospitalization, and has had normal neurodevelopment and growth through age 6 months. The findings in this report provide documentation that yellow fever vaccine virus can be transmitted via breast-feeding. Administration of yellow fever vaccine to breast-feeding women should be avoided except in situations where exposure to yellow fever viruses cannot be avoided or postponed.
