    The markers assessed were Cluster of Differentiation 40 Ligand (CD40L), interleukin-2 (IL-2), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), interferon-gamma (IFN-γ)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The GM Number of Influenza-specific CD4 T-cells Per Million CD4+ T-cells Identified After in Vitro Stimulation With Pooled Vaccine Strains and With Each Vaccine Strain Separately Which Were Producing at Least Two Different Markers [ Time Frame: At Day 0, 21, 42 and 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The markers assessed were CD40L, IL-2, TNF-α, IFN-γ. The separate vaccine strains tested included A/Brisbane, A/Uruguay, B/Brisbane antigens.

    The markers assessed were CD40L, IL-2, TNF-α, IFN-γ. The separate vaccine strains tested included A/Brisbane, A/Uruguay, B/Brisbane antigens.

  • Haemagglutinin Inhibition (HI) Antibody Titers [ Time Frame: At Day 0, 21, 42 and 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Antibody titers were expressed as Geometric mean titers (GMTs) calculated after invitro stimulation with separate vaccine strains.

  • The Number of Subjects Seropositive to HI Antibodies Calculated After in Vitro Stimulation With Separate Vaccine Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 0, 21, 42 and 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seropositivity was defined as antibody titer greater than or equal to the cut-off value i.e ≥ 1:10

  • The Number of Subjects Seroconverted to HI Antibodies [ Time Frame: At Day 21, 42 and 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seroconversion was defined as the number of vaccinees who had either a prevaccination titer < 1:10 and a post-vaccination titer ≥ 1:40 or a pre-vaccination titer ≥ 1:10 and at least a 4-fold increase in post-vaccination titer.

  • HI Antibody Seroconversion Factors [ Time Frame: At Day 21, 42 and 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seroconversion factors were defined as the fold increase in serum HI GMTs post-vaccination compared to Day 0.

  • The Number of Subjects Seroprotected to HI Antibodies [ Time Frame: At Day 0, 21, 42 and 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A seroprotected subject was defined as a subject with a serum HI titer greater than or equal to 1:40 that usually is accepted as indicating protection.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any and Grade 3 Solicited Local Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Day 0 -6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Grade 3 ecchymosis, redness and swelling was >100mm and grade 3 pain was considerable pain at rest, that prevented normal everyday activity.

  • Duration of Solicited Local AEs [ Time Frame: Day 0 -6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration was defined as the number of days with any grade of local symptoms.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any, Grade 3 and Related Solicited General AEs [ Time Frame: Day 0 -6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Any fever was defined as oral temperature ≥ 38.0 degree centigrade (°C), grade 3 fever was defined as oral temperature ≥ 39.0°C. For other symptoms grade 3 was defined as general symptom that prevented normal activity and related was general symptom assessed by the investigator as causally related to the study vaccination.

  • Duration of Solicited General AEs [ Time Frame: Day 0 -6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration was defined as number of days with any grade of general symptoms.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any, Grade 3 and Related Unsolicited AEs [ Time Frame: Day 0-20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Unsolicited AE covers any AE reported in addition to those solicited during the clinical study and any solicited symptom with onset outside the specified period of follow-up for solicited symptoms. Any was defined as occurrence of any unsolicited symptom, regardless of intensity or relation to vaccination, grade 3 was unsolicited symptom that prevented normal activity and related was event assessed by investigator as causally related to the study vaccination.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any, Grade 3 and Related AEs With a Medically Attended Visit (MAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 0-179 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    For each solicited and unsolicited AE the subject experienced, the subject was asked if they received medical attention defined as hospitalization, an emergency room visit or a visit to or from medical personnel (medical doctor) for any reason. Any was defined as occurrence of any symptom, regardless of intensity or relation to vaccination, grade 3 was defined as symptom that prevented normal activity and related was event assessed by investigator as causally related to the study vaccination.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any AEs of Specific Interest (AESI) [ Time Frame: Day 0-364 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AESI for safety monitoring are a subset of AEs that include both clearly autoimmune diseases and also other inflammatory and/or neurologic disorders which may or may not have an autoimmune etiology. Any was defined as occurrence of any symptom, regardless of intensity or relation to vaccination.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any and Related Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 0-364 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SAEs assessed include medical occurrences that result in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, result in disability/incapacity or are a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject. Any was defined as occurrence of any symptom, regardless of intensity or relation to vaccination and related was event assessed by investigator as causally related to the study vaccination.
