A pre-requisite to the yearly licensing process of the Influenza vaccine (FluarixTM/ Influsplit SSW®) is to demonstrate in clinical studies, the immunogenicity and reactogenicity of the vaccine composed of the new strains (2005/2006).
Condition or disease
Biological: Influsplit SSW®
Since 1998 it is common practice within the European Community, to grant new licensees for Influenza Vaccines including the actual strain composition, by realizing the EU "Mutual Recognition Procedure" The procedure foresees the clinical testing of the vaccine before approval according to the particulars in the EU-Document CPMP/BWP/214/96: "Note for Guidance on Harmonization of Requirements for Influenza Vaccines" of the "Committee for Proprietary Medical Products (CPMP) as Sub-Organization of the "European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products". Assessment of the Immunogenicity and Reactogenicity of the in its strain composition actualized, Influenza split vaccine2004/2005 (Influenza split vaccine 2005/2006) versus the criteria of the CPMP.
