MENINGOCOCCAL VACCINE

Meningococcal Vaccine Searches in MEDLINE
and EMBASE (in OVID SP)

Meningococcal vaccine searches in MEDLINE and EMBASE started with one “base set” with which all specific adverse events identified for consideration were combined:

  1. (Meningococcal vaccines/ or MPSV4.mp. or menomune.mp. or MCV4.mp. or menactra.mp. or ((vaccination/ or vaccines/) and exp meningitis/))

The set above was combined with each of the sets below. Each pair resulting from this combination was deduplicated, when the online database provided this utility, and then exported to an EndNote library:

  • Anaphylaxis/ or anaphylactic shock/
  • Exp headache disorders/ or (chronic adj2 headache?)
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy/ or polyradiculoneuropathy, chronic inflammatory demyelinating/ or exp multiple sclerosis
  • Exp encephalitis/ or exp encephalitis, viral/
  • Exp brain disease/ or encephal*.ti,ab.
  • Frozen shoulder/ or exp bursitis/ or shoulder impingement syndrome/ or exp synovitis/
  • Exp Guillain-Barré syndrome/ or myelitis, transverse/ or encephalomyelitis, acute disseminated/
  • Exp syncope/

Meningococcal Vaccine Searches in BIOSIS (in OVID SP) and Web of
Science (Science Citation Index and Social Science Citation Index)

Meningococcal vaccine searches in BIOSIS and Web of Science started with one “base set” with which all specific adverse events identified for consideration were combined:

  1. (Mening* vaccin* or ((vaccin* or immuniz*) and meningitis))
