November 2016 Editor's Pick. Take a look at the latest editor's pick from Expert Review of Gastroenterology & Hepatology.

Editorial board member Gus Rimmelzwaan discusses an interesting paper on maternal vaccination for the prevention of influenza. 'This month’s issue of Expert Review of Vaccines features an interesting paper by Varun K. Phadke and Saad B. Omer: “Maternal vaccination for the prevention of influenza: current status and hopes for the future”. Influenza vaccination has direct beneficial effects in these women who are at increased risk for cardiopulmonary hospitalizations caused by influenza. In addition, there is evidence for a protective effect of vaccine-induced maternally derived antibodies against influenza in infants. This is especially relevant because vaccination of young infants under 6 months of age, in which disease burden is very high, is not recommended. Last but not least, vaccination of pregnant women may even prevent adverse obstetric and perinatal outcomes otherwise caused by influenza virus infections during pregnancy. The authors provide guidance to fill gaps in our understanding, which could further support routine maternal influenza vaccination. To summarise, this article provides an interesting and comprehensive overview of the beneficial effects of vaccination of pregnant women against influenza.' Read the article for free until 20 November 2016.
