Tolerability and Immunogenicity Study of FLUVAL P H1N1 Flu Vaccine of Omninvest in Children and Adolescents
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This is a single-blind, reference drug controlled study to assess safety and tolerability of FLUVAL P H1N1 monovalent influenza vaccine (whole virus, inactivated, adjuvanted with alumn phosphate gel) containing 6 mcgHA per 0.5mL active ingredient in children and adolescents. To assess, as secondary objective, the efficacy (immunogenicity) of the vaccine by serology testing.
Condition or disease
Novel 2009 Influenza H1N1Influenza, Human
Biological: Vaccination with Fluval P monovalent influenza vaccineBiological: Vaccination with Fluval ABBiological: Vaccination with Fluval AB Novo
To assess tolerability/safety (incidence of adverse events 21-28 days following vaccination) of the study drug.
To assess the efficacy (immunogenicity) of the study drug by serology testing of blood samples taken at Day 21‑28 after immunization in groups and age groups.
To assess long term (180-210 days following vaccination) tolerability/safety (incidence of adverse events) of the study drug.
