Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Reporting Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-Confirmed Influenza A and/or B Infection. [ Time Frame: After the first dose during the corresponding surveillance period (from mid November 2008 to the end of April 2009 (end of influenza season)) ]
    Occurrence of PCR-confirmed influenza A and/or B infection, due to any matching or drift influenza strain relative to the vaccine strains (i.e. not emerging novel human influenza strain like H1N1v). PCR-confirmed influenza (PCI) was defined as an episode of influenza-like illness (ILI) occurring after the administration of the study vaccine for which a nasal and throat swab specimen yields influenza virus A and/or B by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis.

  • Serum Hemagglutination-inhibition (HI) Antibody Titers, Against Each of the 3 Vaccine Influenza Strains, in the FluNG Groups. [ Time Frame: At Days 0 (pre-vaccination Dose 1) and 21 (post-vaccination Dose 1) of the first year (2008/2009) of the study ]
    Vaccine strains assessed were A/Brisbane/59/2077, A/Uruguay/716/2007 and B/Brisbane/3/2007. Titers were expressed as geometric mean titers calculated on all subjects in the lot-to-lot subset of subjects.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Reporting Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-Confirmed Influenza A and/or B Infection. [ Time Frame: During the whole surveillance period (from mid November 2008 to end of April 2009 and from mid November 2009 to end of April 2010) ]
    Occurrence of PCR-confirmed influenza A and/or B infection, due to any matching or drift influenza strain relative to the vaccine strains (i.e. not emerging novel human influenza strain like H1N1v). PCR-confirmed influenza (PCI) was defined as an episode of influenza-like illness (ILI) occurring after the administration of the study vaccine for which a nasal and throat swab specimen yields influenza virus A and/or B by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Culture-confirmed Influenza A and/or B Infection. [ Time Frame: During the whole surveillance period (from mid November 2008 to end of April 2009 and from mid November 2009 to end of April 2010) ]
    Occurrence of culture-confirmed influenza A and/or B infection, due to any matching or drift influenza strain relative to the vaccine strains (i.e. not emerging novel human influenza strain like H1N1v). Culture-confirmed influenza (CCI) was defined as an episode of ILI occurring after the administration of the study vaccine for which a nasal and throat swab specimen yields influenza virus A and/or B by viral culture analysis.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Pneumonia or Clinical Influenza After the First Dose of Vaccine. [ Time Frame: During the influenza peak season within the first surveillance period (the influenza peak season being defined per country, falling somewhere between mid November 2008 to end of April 2009) ]

Detailed Description:

This Protocol Posting has been updated according to Protocol Amendment 3, Sep 2009.

After the analyses for this study were completed, questions arose regarding the integrity of study data from a single study site in Romania, which enrolled 102 subjects in the trial. Because evaluation of data from this site did not reveal irregularities when compared with overall study data and because GSK has no current plans to use the data from the study in support of any regulatory filings, they were not excluded from the analyses reflected in this results summary.
