Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare immunogenicity of a single IM inj. of an adj. inactivated subunit flu vaccine vs. inactivated subunit virus flu vaccine, with regards to A/H3N2 antigen, when administered to adults with underlying chronic disease, as measured by HI test at day 22 [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare immunogenicity of an IM injection of an adj. inactivated subunit flu vaccine vs. inactivated subunit virus flu vaccine, with regards to B antigen, when administered to adults with underlying chronic disease, as measured by HI test at day 22 [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate immunog. of a single IM inj. of an adj. inactivated subunit flu vaccine vs. inactivated subunit virus flu vaccine, with regards to A/H1N1 antigen, when administered to adults with underlying chronic disease, as measured by HI test at day 22 [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate the safety of a single IM injection of the two influenza vaccines, when administered to adult subjects with underlying chronic disease(s). [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
