|Brief Title||Screening Volunteers for Influenza Challenge Studies|
|Official Title||Screening of Volunteers for Influenza Human Challenge and Vaccine Studies|
- Influenza (the flu) is highly infectious and contagious. It causes considerable illness in the United States each year. The most severely affected are the very young, sick, and elderly. Researchers want to find healthy volunteers for influenza "challenge studies." In these studies, doctors expose a person to a flu virus. Then they study the flu through the body's natural healing process. This information will help to find better ways to prevent the flu. It may also improve the treatment of people who get the flu.
- To screen healthy volunteers for future influenza challenge studies.
The high morbidity and mortality associated with both pandemic and seasonal influenza and the anticipation for future influenza pandemics puts influenza front and center in infectious disease research. Because the natural history and pathogenesis of human influenza has not been well characterized and cannot be adequately studied in animal models or with current in vitro techniques, important questions about influenza pathogenesis can only be approached through human challenge studies.
Previous human challenge studies have addressed some aspects of the natural history by evaluating the timing of viral replication, shedding, clinical symptoms, and innate and adaptive immune responses. Although these studies have provided important information, all but one was performed prior to 1990. Without exception, these studies had limitations due to the scope of the study and/or the scientific techniques available at that time.
The primary goal of this study is to collect and store serum and PBMC samples and obtain clinical and laboratory data from volunteers to determine in advance if they are potentially eligible to participate in future influenza challenge and/or vaccine studies. To accomplish this objective, up to 5000 participants will be enrolled in this protocol at the NIH Clinical Center clinic or day hospital in order to maintain a pool of participants who have been evaluated and can be screened for future influenza challenge studies.
