Seasonal influenza can lead to pneumonia. In Hong Kong, deaths from pneumonia increased steadily from 2001 to 2015, and pneumonia was the second most common cause of death between 2012 and 2015. The s...
A phase 2/3 double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of a seasonal trivalent inactivated split-virion influenza vaccine (IVACFLU-S) in healthy adults in Vietnam.
Under the WHO's Global Action Plan for Influenza Vaccines, we conducted a Phase 2-3 study of IVACFLU-S, a trivalent, seasonal inactivated influenza vaccine candidate.
New influenza vaccines eliciting more effective protection are needed, particularly for the elderly who paid a large and disproportional toll of hospitalization and dead during seasonal influenza epid...
Seasonal influenza vaccination is the most effective way to prevent influenza virus infection and its complications. Currently, China has licensed trivalent (IIV3) and quadrivalent inactivated influen...
To demonstrate the potential of an MF59-adjuvanted inactivated trivalent seasonal influenza vaccine (aIIV3; Fluad™), to improve the immune response in young children, we review the immunogenicity, e...
The purpose of this study is to comply with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) guidance on enhanced safety surveillance for seasonal influenza vaccines in the European Union (EU) and aims...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and immunogenicity of three seasonal trivalent influenza vaccines (TIVs)manufactured by Glaxosmith Kline (GSK), Beijing Sinovac Biotech (S...
The purpose of this study is to conduct a pilot study to explore the potential use of routinely collected data in General Practitioner (GP) practices to conduct enhanced safety surveillanc...
Study to Evaluate the Immunogenicity and Safety of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Biologicals' Herpes Zoster Vaccine GSK1437173A When Co-administered With GSK Biologicals' Seasonal Influenza Vaccine GSK2321138A in Adults Aged 50 Years and Older
The purpose of this study is to assess immunogenicity, reactogenicity and safety of GSK Biologicals' HZ/su vaccine when its first dose is co-administered with the FLU-D-QIV vaccine in adul...
To evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of the three consecutive lots of an seasonal split influenza vaccine Anflu in adults, a randomized, double-blind and controlled clinical trial was...
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.
Community centers for older adults and providers of resources for the community. In addition to providing services and activities for older adults that reflect the community's diversity, they link participants with resources offered by other agencies.
Vaccines in which the infectious microbial nucleic acid components have been destroyed by chemical or physical treatment (e.g., formalin, beta-propiolactone, gamma radiation) without affecting the antigenicity or immunogenicity of the viral coat or bacterial outer membrane proteins.
The capacity of VACCINES to stimulate the ADAPTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE to produce antibodies and antigen-specific T-CELL responses.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with viruses from the genus SIMPLEXVIRUS. This includes vaccines for HSV-1 and HSV-2.

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...
