PT RECEIVED PEDIARIX, HIB, AND PREVNAR ON 02/06/15.

NO ADVERSE EVENT
REPORTED DURING THAT DAY. NO SYMPTOMS. PT WAS FOUND UNRESPONSIVE
AROUND 8AM ON 02/07/15. CAUSE OF DEATH HAS YET TO BE DETERMINED.
This spontaneous report was received from a physician concerning a 3 year old
patient (gender unknown), who on an unknown date was vaccinated with a varicella
containing vaccine which could be possible VARIVAX (Merck) or PROQUAD (Merck)
(vaccines, routes, doses, lot numbers and expiration dates were not provided).
Other suspect therapies or concomitant medication were not provided. The
physician reported, that she was told that a patient's younger relative developed
febrile seizure and on an unknown date died after getting the varicella containing
vaccine. The physician stated that she was not sure the brand name of the vaccine
(possibly VARIVAX (Merck) or PROQUAD (Merck)). The patient cause of death was
febrile seizure. It was unknown if an autopsy was performed. Upon internal review,
the event of febrile seizure was considered to be another important medical event.
This is one of several reports received from the same source. Additional information
is not expected because the physician did not have much information about the
patient and refused to continue with the AE reporting.

This case was reported in a literature article and described the occurrence of
vomiting in a 7-year-old male patient who received Influenza vaccine. On an
unknown date, the patient received Influenza vaccine (unknown). On an unknown
date, 3 days after receiving Influenza vaccine, the patient experienced vomiting,
appetite lost and influenza A virus infection. On an unknown date, the outcome of
the vomiting, appetite lost and influenza A virus infection were unknown. The
reported cause of death was Reye's syndrome. An autopsy was performed. The
autopsy determined cause of death was hepatic steatosis, kidney tubule disorder,
cerebral edema, influenza A virus infection and salicylate intoxication. It was
unknown if the reporter considered the vomiting, appetite lost and influenza A virus
infection to be related to Influenza vaccine. Additional information received: This
case was reported in a literature article and it described the occurrence of vomiting
in a 7-year-old male patient who had received unspecified influenza A vaccination
(manufacturer unknown). No information on the patient's medical or family history
or concurrent condition was provided. On an unspecified date, the patient received
unspecified influenza A vaccine (administration route and site unspecified; dosages
unknown; batch numbers not provided). On an unspecified date, 3 days after
receiving vaccination the patient developed profound vomiting and loss of appetite.
The patient's mother had given him PEPTO-BISMOL and Gatorade as treatment and
sent the patient to bed. The patient was found unresponsive less than 12 hours
later and pronounced dead 4 minutes after arrival at the hospital. Autopsy findings
included diffuse mixed micro and macro vesicular steatosis of the liver, micro
vesicular steatosis in the renal tubule cells, and cerebral edema. A postmortem
nasopharyngeal swab screening was positive for influenza A. Toxicology was positive
for salicylate. The outcomes of the events were unspecified. The authors did not
comment on causality relationship between the vaccine and the event. The authors
concluded that "Reye's syndrome is a rare severe neurologic disorder consisting of a

biphasic illness characterized by a viral infection followed by an acute onset of noninflammatory encephalopathy and hepatic failure, with rapid progression to death if
not properly treated. It most commonly affects children younger than 16 years of
age who are treated with aspirin during certain viral infections, including varicella
and influenza. The exact cause is unknown, but it is thought to result from
mitochondrial impairment resulting from the actions of salicylate and its
metabolites, hydroxyhippurate and gentisate. This impairment appears to be
intensified during viral illnesses".

A spontaneous health professional report from a regulatory authority in an article,


concerns a 19 year old female. The patient's medical history included cold sweat,
nausea, dizziness, and difficulty reading numbers on the day prior to death.
Concomitant medications included quadrivalent human papilloma virus vaccine and
meningococcal conjugate. Patient received Nasal FLUMIST QUADRIVALENT on an

causes. Despite an extensive post-mortem examination including autopsy and
microscopic, neuropathological, toxicological, and chemical evaluation, the
immediate cause of death could not be ascertained. Autopsy revealed no obvious
cause of death. The reporter assessed the death to be serious by the criterion of
death.

A report from VAERS concerns a three year old male patient. The patient was born

defect. The patient received nasal FLUMIST and 10 days later experienced hypoxicischemic brain injury. The patient died of the hypoxic-ischemic brain injury on an
unknown date. It was unknown if autopsy was performed. The reporter assessed the
event as serious due to death. Based on the information in this report, and awaiting
the reporter's assessment, the company physician considered the event to be at
least possibly related to FLUMIST.

In the morning, I had leg cramps. Later in the afternoon, I had abdominal pain. By
8PM, I was in pre-term labor. I had extremely high blood pressure and rapid heart
rate upon entrance to the ER. I was in labor for at least 6 hours, giving birth to a
stillborn 16-weeks-gestation baby just after 2AM. Later determined to be
chorioamnionitis of the placenta and pneumonia in the baby, resulting in fetal
death. I had an ultrasound and doctor appointment 36 hours prior to the
miscarriage and everything appeared healthy with no signs of infection. The
vaccine was administered immediately after the ultrasound on 11/07/2014.
