The main purpose of the this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of Immunose™ FLU based on Endocine™ and quadrivalent influenza antigen.
The overall aim of this study is to evaluate the safety, immunogenicity and dose sparing effects of H7N9 influenza antigen formulated with 2 different adjuvants .
To evaluate the antibody response to each influenza vaccine antigen when administering a single dose to subjects aged 18 years and over
Due to antigenic changes of influenza viruses, the virus strains used in influenza vaccines are adjusted every year according to WHO and CPMP recommendations. Immunogenicity and tolerabili...
To evaluate the antibody response to each influenza vaccine antigen when administering a single dose to subjects aged 65 years and over
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.
Human histocompatibility (HLA) surface antigen encoded by the A locus on chromosome 6. The HLA-A2 antigen is associated with recognition of the INFLUENZA A VIRUS.
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.
