Brief Summary:
This Phase 3/4, randomized, observer-blind, multi-center study, stratified study evaluated the immune (antibody) response, efficacy and safety of a cell-derived quadrivalent subunit influenza virus vaccine (Seqirus QIVc) in comparison with a non-influenza comparator, meningococcal serogroup A, C, W-135, and Y (Menveo®, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, S.A.) in healthy pediatric subjects ≥2 Years to <18 Years of Age

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Influenza, Human Biological: QIVc Biological: Non-influenza Comparator Vaccine Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This Phase 3/4, randomized, observer-blind, multi-center, stratified study evaluated the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity of a cell-derived quadrivalent subunit influenza virus vaccine (Seqirus QIVc) compared to a non-influenza comparator vaccine in healthy male and female participants between 2 to <18 years of age. A total of 4514 children/teens were randomized, receiving either QIVc or the non-influenza comparator vaccine. The comparator was (meningococcal [Groups A, C, W-135, and Y] oligosaccharide diphtheria CRM197 conjugate vaccine [Men ACWY]). Randomized enrollment was stratified in a 1:1 ratio via an Interactive Response Technology (IRT) system which assigned the participants into two age cohorts: 2 to <9 years of age and 9 to <18 years of age. Subjects between 2 to <9 years of age were further stratified by previous influenza vaccine status ("previously vaccinated" or "not previously vaccinated").
