  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to generate data on immunogenicity and safety of the monovalent H1N1 vaccine in support of the development and registration.

Primary objectives:

  • To describe the immune response to vaccines 21 days after each vaccination in all participants.
  • To describe the antibody persistence eight months after the first vaccine administration using hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) method in a subset of participants who received two half-doses of either formulation 1 or 2.
  • To describe the immune response against the A/H1N1 strain using the HAI method 21 days after last vaccination with the 2010-2011 NH seasonal Trivalent Influenza Vaccine (TIV) administered 13 months after the first vaccination in a subset of subjects who received two half-doses of either t either formulation 1 or 2 of the A/H1N1 influenza vaccines as primary series.
  • To describe the safety profile of each vaccine in all participants.

Enrollment: 401
Study Start Date: September 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2011
Primary Completion Date: January 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A/H1N1 Vaccine Group 1
All participants will receive A/H1N1 Influenza vaccine formulation 1 at Visits 1 and 2; and a subset will receive a trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) at Month 13 (antibody persistence subset)
Biological: Swine A/H1N1 influenza vaccine (split virion, inactivated)
0.5 mL, Intramuscular on Day 0 and Day 21 (all participants); and 0.5 mL of a trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) at Month 13 (antibody persistence subset).
Experimental: A/H1N1 Vaccine Group 2
All participants will receive A/H1N1 Influenza vaccine formulation 2 at Visits 1 and 2; and a subset will receive a trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) at Month 13 (antibody persistence subset).
Biological: Swine A/H1N1 influenza vaccine (split virion, inactivated + Adjuvant)
0.5 mL, Intramuscular on Day 0 and Day 21 (all participants); and 0.5 mL of a trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) at Month 13 (antibody persistence subset)
Experimental: A/H1N1 Vaccine Group 3
Participants will receive A/H1N1 Influenza vaccine formulation 3
Biological: Swine A/H1N1 influenza vaccine (split virion, inactivated + adjuvant)
0.5 mL, Intramuscular on Day 0 and Day 21

Detailed Description:

All participants will receive two injections of their randomized vaccine on Day 0 and Day 21, respectively.

A subset of the participants eligible who received two half-doses of either formulation 1 or 2 will also be proposed to receive the 2010-2011 Northern Hemisphere (NH) seasonal Trivalent Influenza Vaccine (TIV) 13 months after the first vaccination as Follows:

  • Subjects less than 36 months at the time of TIV injection will receive two half-doses and additional sampling for immunogenicity assessment (one before the first TIV vaccination and one 21 days after last TIV vaccination).
  • Subjects aged more than 36 months at the time of TIV injection will receive a full TIV dose and additional sampling for immunogenicity assessment (one before TIV vaccination and one 21 days after TIV vaccination).
