The purpose of this study is to evaluate how effective the vaccine is at preventing subjects developing flu symptoms after they are directly exposed to flu virus. The study will also evaluate how well the vaccine is tolerated at sites where administrations are given, any effects it may have on subjects' wellbeing and whether it can produce antibody responses in the body
Influenza is a contagious disease of the upper airways and the lungs. It rapidly spreads around the world in seasonal epidemics, killing hundreds of thousands of people and having high economic consequences due to healthcare costs and lost productivity. Each year governments recommend groups who are at risk of influenza or its complications to receive influenza vaccination. Current vaccine supply is not sufficient to meet the demand if this recommendation were to be taken up by all. This study will evaluate PowderMed's Particle Mediated Epidermal Delivery (PMED) DNA vaccine for influenza as a potential alternative to existing vaccine technologies. This study will assess how effective two different PMED vaccine combinations are at preventing subjects developing influenza following exposure to flu virus 56 days after a single dose of vaccine.

Safety, Tolerability, and Immunogenicity of Different Combinations of Trivalent Influenza Vaccine Varying Influenza Antigen Dose, Adjuvant Dose, and Route of Administration in Healthy Elderly Individuals Ages 65 Years and Older
The study will evaluate the safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of different doses and types of Influenza Vaccine in healthy elderly subjects.
This is a study to assess the immune (antibody) response and safety of a bioCSL split virion, inactivated quadrivalent influenza vaccine, in comparison with a US licensed 2014/2015 trivale...
This study is powered to prospectively evaluate the relative effectiveness of adjuvanted trivalent influenza vaccine (aTIV; FLUAD) in preventing influenza mortality, hospitalization, and f...
2015/16 I-MOVE/I-MOVE+ multicentre case control study in Europe: moderate vaccine effectiveness estimates against influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 and low estimates against lineage mismatched influenza B among children.
During the 2015/16 influenza season in Europe, the co-circulating influenza viruses were A(H1N1)pdm09 and B/Victoria, which was antigenically distinct from the B/Yamagata component in the trivalent in...
Since 2007, trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine has been provided free-of-charge to older adults aged ≥60 years in Beijing, China, but the data regarding influenza vaccine effectiveness (VE) am...
To inform national healthcare authorities whether quadrivalent influenza vaccines (QIVs) provide better value for money than trivalent influenza vaccines (TIVs), we assessed the cost-effectiveness of ...
The benefit of influenza vaccines is difficult to estimate due to the complexity of accurately assessing the burden of influenza. To improve the efficacy of influenza vaccines, vaccine manufacturers h...
In the 2015-2016 season, quadrivalent live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) and both trivalent and quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) were available in the United States.
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 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)
The relationship between an elicited ADAPTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE and the dose of the vaccine administered.
Active immunization where vaccine is administered for therapeutic or preventive purposes. This can include administration of immunopotentiating agents such as BCG vaccine and Corynebacterium parvum as well as biological response modifiers such as interferons, interleukins, and colony-stimulating factors in order to directly stimulate the immune system.
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.
