İster inanın ister inanmayın! Kolesterol ilaçları (statinler) grip aşılarının (domuz gribi dahil) etkisini azaltıyor veya önlüyor!. Umarım uzmanlar bu konuda fikirlerini söylerler…Yaşlılara boşu boşuna mı aşı yapılıyor?
Using a managed care database in Georgia, Omer and colleagues[9] conducted a retrospective cohort study over nine influenza seasons (2002-2011) to assess the effect of influenza vaccination and prescription statin status on medically attended acute respiratory illness (MAARI), a commonly used indicator of the population impact of influenza. Most patients were younger than 65 years. After adjustment for prespecified variables, statin therapy was associated with reduced effectiveness of the influenza vaccine against MAARI.
In a post hoc analysis of a randomized controlled trial[10] comparing the immunogenicity of adjuvanted vs unadjuvanted influenza vaccine in people aged 65 years or older, Black and colleagues[11] performed a cross-sectional observational study of 6961 study participants to evaluate the influence of statin therapy on the immune response to influenza vaccination. The titers of antibodies to influenza were substantially lower in persons taking statins. In statin users, titers to influenza A (H1N1) were 38% lower (95% CI, 27%-50%), titers to influenza A (H3N2) were 67% lower (95% CI, 54%-80%), and titers to B strains were 38% lower (95% CI, 28%-29%) than in nonusers, regardless of the vaccine type received (adjuvanted or unadjuvanted).
Statins, which have been shown to reduce cardiovascular mortality and major vascular events,[12,13] are among the most commonly prescribed medications in the world. In the United States, more than 40% of people who are older than 65 years use statins.[14] On the other hand, influenza is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality, especially in elderly persons, raising the question of benefit vs risk of statins in terms of possible reduced efficacy of the influenza vaccine.[15]
