This is a phase 3, double-blind, randomized, placebo- controlled trial with two groups of participants to receive seasonal trivalent split, inactivated influenza vaccine (A/H1N1; A/H3N2 and B) or placebo (phosphate buffered saline). A total of about 480 healthy male and female adults 18 through 65 years of age; 320 participants will be randomized to receive vaccine and160 will receive placebo (a 2:1 ratio). At least 25% of the participants (N=120) will be >/= 45 years of age (80 vaccine and 40 placebo recipients).
Safety will be assessed in all participants through Day 91. Immunogenicity will be assessed in serum samples obtained at baseline and 21 days after vaccination in a subset of at least 100 individuals randomized to study vaccine and 50 placebo recipients.

This is a multi-center, randomized, two stage, double-blind, placebo-controlled, two-dose administration study comprising 160 healthy participants.
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of an investigational Vero cell-derived, trivalent, seasonal influenza vaccine to prevent infection with an influenza virus that is...
Factors, such as age, comorbidities, vaccine type, herd immunity, previous influenza exposure, and antigenic shift, may impact the immune response to the influenza vaccine, protection against circulat...
Epidemics of seasonal influenza viruses cause considerable morbidity and mortality each year. Various types and subtypes of influenza circulate in humans and evolve continuously such that individuals ...
A quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIV) includes two A strains (A/H1N1, A/H3N2) and two B lineages (B/Victoria, B/Yamagata). The presence of both B lineages eliminate potential B lineage mismatch of tr...
Influenza vaccination is recommended for vulnerable individuals, including active drug users, to prevent influenza complications and decrease influenza spread. Recent studies suggest that opioids nega...
Vaccination is the most effective means of preventing influenza. However, the cost of producing annual seasonal influenza vaccines puts them out of reach for most developing countries. While live atte...
A sodium fluoride solution, paste or powder, which has been acidulated to pH 3 to 4 and buffered with a phosphate. It is used in the prevention of dental caries.
Vaccines used to prevent infection by viruses in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE. It includes both killed or attenuated vaccines. The composition of the vaccines is changed each year in response to antigenic shifts and changes in prevalence of influenza virus strains. The vaccine is usually bivalent or trivalent, containing one or two INFLUENZAVIRUS A strains and one INFLUENZAVIRUS B strain.
A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.
Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.
A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Influenza or 'flu' is a respiratory illness associated with infection by influenza virus. Symptoms frequently include headache, fever, cough, sore throat, aching muscles and joints. There is a wide spectrum of severity of illness ranging from min...
Swine Flu - H1N1 influenza - H7N9
Swine flu is the common name given to a relatively new strain of influenza (flu) that caused a flu pandemic in 2009-2010. It is also referred to as H1N1 influenza (because it is the H1N1 strain of virus). The H1N1 flu virus will be one of the main vi...
