The purpose of this trial is to describe the immunogenicity, the safety, and tolerability of FluLaval™ TR and Fluarix®, the latter serving as active comparator. The results will be compared to a standard immune response criteria, for both young and elderly populations.

Condition Intervention Phase
Biological: Influenza vaccine (A/H3N2, A/H1N1, and B strains)
Biological: Fluarix
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind Trial Evaluating the Safety and Immunogenicity of an Influenza Vaccine With Reduced Preservative (FluLaval™ TR) and a Standard Influenza Vaccine (Fluarix®) in Subjects Between 18-60 and Over 60 Years of Age.

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 21 days after vaccination: seroconversion rate, seroprotection rate,
  • geometric mean titer fold increase

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immediate AEs; solicited and spontaneous AEs within 42 days of vaccination;
  • SAEs over the whole study period

Estimated Enrollment: 600
Study Start Date: September 2006
Study Completion Date: November 2006
Intervention Details:
    Biological: Influenza vaccine (A/H3N2, A/H1N1, and B strains) Biological: Fluarix
    Other Name: Influenza vaccine (A/H3N2, A/H1N1, and B strains)
Detailed Description:
This randomized trial will assess the immune protection offered at Day 21 by FluLaval™ TR, Fluarix® being the comparator. In both groups, immune response will be assessed through a blood test before and 21 days following vaccination. The safety and tolerability of the study vaccine will be contrasted to the comparator vaccine over a period of 42 days following vaccination.
