The purpose of this study is to test the safety and immune response of a new intranasal vaccine against influenza, called NB-1008. The vaccine is composed of a licensed vaccine that is normally given as an injection, called Fluzone, and an adjuvant (additive that helps a vaccine work better), called W805EC. In a prior clinical study this vaccine showed promising results in terms of being well tolerated and eliciting mucosal and systemic immune responses after administration by a dropper. In this study NB-1008 is being administered by dropper as well as a nasal sprayer to determine if the sprayer further enhances the immune response.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Male or female.
  2. Are 18-49 years of age, inclusive.
  3. If female, must be non-pregnant as confirmed by a negative serum pregnancy test conducted at screening and a negative urine pregnancy test conducted at the site within 24 hours preceding receipt of vaccine.
  4. Females who are not surgically sterile or at least one year post-menopausal agree to use oral, implantable, transdermal or injectable contraceptive or another reliable form of contraception approved by the Investigator for a minimum of 30 days prior to vaccination and for 3 months following vaccination.
  5. Healthy, as determined by medical history, physical examination, vital signs, and clinical laboratory examinations.
  6. Comprehension of the study requirements, expressed availability for the required study period, and ability to attend scheduled visits.
  7. Has given written informed consent to participate in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Presence of significant acute or chronic, uncontrolled medical or psychiatric illness (institution of new medical or surgical treatment, or a significant dose alteration for uncontrolled symptoms or drug toxicity within 3 months). Subjects with a history of chronic cough, frequent sinus infections, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps or obstruction, including deviated septum significant enough to obstruct the nasal openings are to be excluded. Subjects with seasonal rhinitis may be included if their 'season' does not occur within 3 months of the vaccination date and they are not currently receiving intranasal steroids.
  2. Receipt of the 22010-2011 influenza vaccine or the 2009 pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine.
  3. Positive serology for HIV-1 or HIV-2, or HCV antibodies.
  4. Platelet count <150,000/mm3.
  5. Positive urine drug screen.
  6. History of aspiration, dysphagia, swallowing disorders, stroke or other neurologic conditions that may predispose the subject to aspiration of test articles into the respiratory tract.
  7. History of Bell's palsy.
  8. Cancer or treatment for cancer, within 3 years. Subjects with a history of cancer who are disease-free without treatment for 3 years or more are eligible. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) or (SCC) are allowed, unless present on or near the nose.
