Study to Evaluate Reactogenicity and Immunogenicity of Revaccination With Adjuvanted Influenza Vaccine in Elderly

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
GlaxoSmithKline Identifier:
First received: October 9, 2006
Last updated: September 29, 2011
Last verified: September 2011
Since influenza vaccines are normally administered every year because of the frequent change in their antigenic composition, the safety and immunogenicity profile of adjuvanted influenza vaccine need to be re-evaluated after repeated vaccine administration. In this study, subjects previously vaccinated with Fluarix or the influenza adjuvanted vaccine, will receive a booster dose with the 2006-2007 season's formulations of either Fluarix or the adjuvanted vaccine.

Condition Intervention Phase
Influenza Biological: Fluarix and adjuvanted influenza vaccine Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Phase II, Open, Controlled Study to Evaluate the Reactogenicity and the Immunogenicity of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals Adjuvanted Influenza Vaccine in Elderly Adults Previously Vaccinated With Either Fluarix™ or the Adjuvanted Vaccine.

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the safety and reactogenicity of repeated vaccination with adjuvanted influenza vaccine, during 21 days following administration of the vaccine.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the humoral immune response & cell-mediated immune response 21 days after revaccination with candidate vaccine.

Estimated Enrollment: 83
Study Start Date: October 2006

Ages Eligible for Study:   67 Years and older   (Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The subjects must be healthy elderly >/= 67 years and previously vaccinated with Fluarix or the adjuvanted vaccine.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects will be excluded if they take/have taken chronically high doses of immunosuppressants or other immunemodifying drugs within six months before vaccination, or immunoglobulins or blood products within three months before vaccination, or any investigational product within 30 days before vaccination, have a history of influenza infection since previous vaccination, or if subjects have acute or chronic clinically significant disease or an immunosuppressive/deficient condition, or have contra-indications to influenza vaccination
