NCT01000584

  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness (immune response) to a licensed H1N12009 influenza vaccine in adults when given at the same time or prior to the seasonal influenza vaccine. The study will enroll 300 adults (ages 20-59 years). Participants will be randomized into 2 groups. One group will receive one dose of a licensed H1N1 vaccine and one dose of the seasonal influenza vaccine at the same time; the second group will receive the seasonal influenza vaccine 3 weeks after receiving the licensed H1N12009 influenza vaccine. Study procedures include: medical history, blood samples and completing a memory aid. Participants will be involved in study related procedures for approximately 3-6 weeks depending upon the group assignment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of adverse events (AEs) for days 0-6 after each vaccination [ Time Frame: Day 7 and Day 21 post vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Occurrence of serious adverse events (SAEs) and other significant health events up to 21 days after each vaccination [ Time Frame: Day 7 and Day 21 post vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity: Comparison of baseline and post-immunization antibody titres [ Time Frame: Day 21 post vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: November 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2010
Primary Completion Date: February 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
1
Group A: One dose of the licensed H1N1 vaccine and one dose of the seasonal influenza vaccine given concurrently
Biological: Arepanrix, Vaxigrip 2009/2010
Group A: Single dose of Arepanrix and single dose of Vaxigrip 2009/2010 given concurrently
2
Group B: One dose of seasonal influenza vaccine given 3 weeks after administration of one dose of the licensed H1N1 vaccine
Biological: Arepanrix, Vaxigrip 2009/2010
Group B: Single dose of Vaxigrip 2009/2010 given 3 weeks after single dose of Arepanrix

Detailed Description:

The objectives of this study are two-fold:

  1. To evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of H1N12009 influenza vaccine in a convenience sample of adults, soon after the pandemic vaccine becomes available so as to inform the subsequent use of vaccine in public programs.
  2. To evaluate the compatibility of co-administered H1N12009 pandemic vaccine and seasonal TIV vaccine in the same group of subjects, as the option of co-administration would be useful for public programs.
