MCCV advice for kidney disease children

08 August 2003



by Health Newswire reporters

Withholding the menogococcal vaccine could be the best way of dealing with children with kidney disorder nephritic syndrome, according to top paediatrician.


Paediatric vaccination advice

Anecdotal evidence has linked vaccination with the development of nephritic syndrome, but this is the first time it has been properly investigated.

Dr Richard Trompeter, from
London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust, said a 30 per cent increase in relapse of nephritic syndrome occurred after meningoccocal C vaccination was introduced for all people under the age of 18 in 1999.

In a cohort of 106 patients, there were 63 relapses during the 12 months before vaccination and 96 during the equivalent period post-vaccination, he said. The relapse of nephritic syndrome increased significantly after administration of MCCV.

Investigators propose that the conjugated vaccine influences processes in the immune system that could promote production of proteinuria – meaning protein in the urine, one of the main features of nephritic syndrome.

In a research letter, published in The Lancet, Dr Trompeter says, “Our results indicate a causal relation between administration of MCCV and relapse of nephroic syndrome.

“The risk of relapse after vaccination might be greater for this group of patients than the risk of meningoccocal C infection, so the decision to vaccinate should be carefully considered.”
