A randomized clinical trial to identify the optimal antigen and MF59(®) adjuvant dose of a monovalent A/H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccine in healthy adult and elderly subjects


Hatz, Christoph; von Sonnenburg, Frank; Casula, Daniela; Lattanzi, Maria; Leroux-Roels, Geert (2012). A randomized clinical trial to identify the optimal antigen and MF59(®) adjuvant dose of a monovalent A/H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccine in healthy adult and elderly subjects. Vaccine, 30(23):3470-3477.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Vaccines against pandemic A/H1N1 influenza are required to protect the entire population. This dose range study aimed to identify priming antigen and adjuvant doses resulting in optimal levels of antibody-mediated protection after primary and one-year booster immunizations.
METHODS: This randomised trial enrolled 410 healthy adult (18-60 years) and 251 healthy elderly (>60 years) participants. Subjects received vaccine containing either 3.75 μg or 7.5 μg antigen, adjuvanted with half the standard dose, or a standard dose of MF59(®) (Novartis Vaccines) adjuvant, respectively. An additional adult cohort received non-adjuvanted vaccine containing 15 μg antigen. Two doses of investigational vaccine were administered three weeks apart, followed by a single booster dose of adjuvanted seasonal influenza vaccine one year after priming. Immunogenicity was assessed by haemagglutination inhibition and microneutralization assays pre- and post-immunization, the safety profile of each vaccine was also evaluated.
RESULTS: All of the vaccine formulations investigated were highly immunogenic and well tolerated in both adult and elderly subjects. The 7.5 μg formulation induced the highest antibody titres after primary and booster immunizations, and resulted in better long-term antibody persistence, in both age groups. Assessment according to European licensure criteria for influenza vaccines concluded that single adjuvanted priming doses containing 3.75 μg and 7.5 μg antigen were optimal for the adult and elderly populations, respectively.
CONCLUSIONS: These data demonstrate that one priming dose of MF59-adjuvanted A/H1N1 vaccine provided healthy adult (3.75 μg or 7.5 μg formulations) and healthy elderly (7.5 μg formulation) individuals with adequate levels of seroprotection. Booster administration after two priming doses of either vaccine formulation resulted in the rapid development of seroprotective antibody titres.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
