The purpose of this clinical study was to evaluate immune responses measuring antibodies in serum and secretions and cellular immune responses generated by CAIV-T vaccine in healthy adults aged 18 years and older as a means to develop assays for application in investigating potential immunological correlates of protection and/or establishing assays to measure vaccine take.

The primary objective of this study is to estimate the relative efficacy and assess the safety of CAIV-T compared to TIV.
- The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of CAIV-T in a diverse Asian population aged from 6 months to less than 36 months, in tropical and temperate climates, against cult...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy, safety and tolerability of the liquid formulation of CAIV-T against culture confirmed influenza illness in adults aged 60 years and ...
To assess whether CAIV-T was transmitted from vaccinated children to their unvaccinated contacts in a day care setting; and if so, to estimate the rate of transmission.
- Trial to compare the efficacy of the liquid formulation of CAIV-T with TIV against culture confirmed influenza illness in children.
The development of a broadly protective or universal influenza virus vaccine is currently a public health priority worldwide. The vast majority of these efforts is exclusively focused on influenza A v...
New treatments for severe influenza are needed. Passive transfer of influenza-specific hyperimmune pooled immunoglobulin (Flu-IVIG) boosts neutralising antibody responses to past strains in influenza-...
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...
The association of influenza with meteorological variables in tropical climates remains controversial. Here we investigate the impact of weather conditions on influenza in the tropics and factors that...
Influenza is an acute viral disease with involvement of the respiratory tract. It can be life-threatening. New types of influenza viruses can spread globally and cause influenza pandemics with exalted...
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.
Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.
Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.
A genus of the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE comprising viruses similar to types A and B but less common, more stable, more homogeneous, and lacking the neuraminidase protein. They have not been associated with epidemics but may cause mild influenza. Influenza C virus is the type species.
A genus in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE causing influenza and other diseases in humans and animals. It contains many strains as well as antigenic subtypes of the integral membrane proteins hemagglutinin (HEMAGGLUTININS) and NEURAMINIDASE. The type species is INFLUENZA A VIRUS.
A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one ...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
