Official Title: A Phase II, Observer-Blind, Randomized, Parallel Groups, Multicenter, Exploratory Clinical Study to Evaluate the Immunogenicity and Safety of One and Two 0.25 mL Intramuscular Doses of a Commercially Available Influenza Vaccine Versus Two 0.25 mL Intramuscular Doses of a Commercially Available Influenza Vaccine in Healthy Children

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the immunogenicity of the 2 vaccines in terms of post-immunization geometric mean titers (GMTs), as measured by the hemagglutination inhibition (HI) test

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the immunogenicity of the 2 vaccines in terms of seroprotection, and seroconversion or significant increase, as measured by HI test
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of the 2 vaccines administered 4 weeks apart
