Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Reporting Fever, Defined as Oral Temperature ≥ 101°F [ Time Frame: Study Days 1-8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A comparison of the rate of fever (oral temperature ≥ 101°F) reported during the 7 days post administration of investigational product between the monovalent vaccine and placebo groups.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Reporting Any Solicited Symptom [ Time Frame: Study Days 1-8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Solicited symptoms were events that were considered likely to occur post dosing. Solicited symptoms for this study are listed below.

  • Percentage of Participants Reporting Any Adverse Event. [ Time Frame: Study Days 1-8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An adverse event (AE) was defined as: Any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product.

  • Percentage of Participants Reporting Any Solicited Symptom. [ Time Frame: Study Days 1-15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Solicited symptoms were events that were considered likely to occur post dosing. Solicited symptoms for this study are listed below.

  • Percentage of Participants Reporting Any Adverse Event. [ Time Frame: Study Days 1-15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An adverse event (AE) was defined as: Any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product.

  • Percentage of Participants Reporting at Least One Serious Adverse Event (SAE) or New Onset Chronic Disease (NOCD), Study Days 1-29 [ Time Frame: Study Days 1-29 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    SAEs were those that resulted in death; were life-threatening; resulted in inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization; resulted in persistent or significant disability or incapacity; were a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study participant; or were a medical event that may have jeopardized the subject and may have required medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed above. An NOCD was a newly diagnosed medical condition of a chronic, ongoing nature and assessed by the investigator as medically significant.

  • Percentage of Participants Reporting at Least One Serious Adverse Event (SAE) or New Onset Chronic Disease (NOCD), Study Days 1-181 [ Time Frame: Study Days 1-181 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    SAEs were those that resulted in death; were life-threatening; resulted in inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization; resulted in persistent or significant disability or incapacity; were a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study participant; or were a medical event that may have jeopardized the subject and may have required medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed above. An NOCD was a newly diagnosed medical condition of a chronic, ongoing nature and assessed by the investigator as medically significant.


Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: May 2010
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Single dose of monovalent vaccine
Biological: Monovalent Frozen FluMist®
Single dose of monovalent vaccine (240 subjects) by intranasal spray on Study Day 1.
Placebo Comparator: 2
Placebo
Other: Placebo
Single dose of placebo (60 subjects) by intranasal spray on Study Day 1

Detailed Description:

This prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled release study will enroll approximately 300 healthy adults 18-49 years of age. Eligible subjects will be randomly assigned in a 4:1 fashion to receive a single dose of monovalent vaccine or placebo by intranasal spray. This study will be conducted at multiple sites in the United States. Randomization will be stratified by site.

Each subject will receive one dose of investigational product on Study Day 1. The duration of study participation for each subject is the time from receipt of investigational product through 180 days after receipt of investigational product.

To summarize the primary safety phase data (Study Days 1-8), the study will be unblinded to the analysis team at MedImmune after all data through at least Study Day 8 are locked.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 49 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female, 18 through 49 years of age (not yet reached their 50th birthday) at the time of investigational product administration
  • Healthy by medical history and physical examination
  • Written informed consent and any locally required authorization (eg, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act in the United States of America, European Union [EU] Data Privacy Directive in the EU) obtained from the subject/legal representative prior to performing any protocol-related procedures, including screening evaluations
  • Female subjects of child-bearing potential, (ie, unless at least 2 years postmenopausal, surgically sterile [eg, bilateral tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy], has sterile male partner, or practices abstinence) must use an effective method of avoiding pregnancy (including oral, transdermal, or implanted contraceptives, intrauterine device, female condom with spermicide, diaphragm with spermicide, cervical cap, or use of a condom with spermicide by the sexual partner) for 30 days prior to administration of investigational product, and must agree to continue using such precautions for 60 days after investigational product administration. In addition, the subject must also have a negative urine or blood pregnancy test at screening and, if screening and Day 1 do not occur on the same day, on the day of vaccination prior to randomization.
  • Males, unless surgically sterile must use an effective method of birth control with a female partner and must agree to continue using such contraceptive precautions for at least 30 days after dosing with investigational product (from Study Day 1 through Study Day 31)
  • Subject available by telephone
  • Ability to understand and comply with the requirements of the protocol, as judged by the investigator
  • Ability to complete follow-up period of 180 days after dosing as required by the protocol

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of hypersensitivity to any component of the vaccine, including egg or egg protein or serious, life threatening, or severe reactions to previous influenza vaccinations
  • History of hypersensitivity to gentamicin
  • Any condition for which the inactivated influenza vaccine is indicated, including chronic disorders of the pulmonary or cardiovascular systems (eg, asthma), chronic metabolic diseases (eg, diabetes mellitus), renal dysfunction, or hemoglobinopathies that required regular medical follow-up or hospitalization during the preceding year Note: A history of asthma that requires regular medical follow-up or hospitalization during the preceding 2 years is exclusionary. Investigator judgment is required to determine whether or not a subject has a history of asthma; however, for adult subjects, a remote history of wheezing or a remote diagnosis of asthma that the investigator does not consider to be relevant to current health does not need to be considered to be a history of asthma. For example, childhood asthma that has not required treatment in adulthood is not necessarily exclusionary
  • Acute febrile (> 100.0°F oral or equivalent) and/or clinically significant respiratory illness (eg, cough or sore throat) within 14 days prior to randomization
  • Any known immunosuppressive condition or immune deficiency disease, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, or ongoing immunosuppressive therapy
  • History of Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • A household contact who is severely immunocompromised (eg, hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipient, during those periods in which the immunocompromised individual requires care in a protective environment); additionally, subject should avoid close contact with severely immunocompromised individuals for at least 21 days after receipt of investigational product
  • Receipt of any investigational agent within 30 days prior to randomization, or expected receipt through 30 days after the dose of investigational product
  • Receipt of any non-study vaccine within 30 days prior to randomization, or expected receipt through 30 days after receipt of investigational product
  • Expected receipt of antipyretic or analgesic medication on a daily or every other day basis from randomization through 14 days after receipt of investigational product Note: A daily dose of up to 81 mg of aspirin for prophylactic use is not considered a contraindication to enrollment.
  • Administration of intranasal medications within 14 days prior to randomization, or expected receipt through 14 days after administration of investigational product
  • Receipt of influenza antiviral therapy or antiviral agents within 48 hours prior to investigational product administration or expected receipt of influenza antiviral therapy or antiviral agents through 14 days after receipt of each dose of investigational product
  • Known or suspected mitochondrial encephalomyopathy
  • Nursing mother
  • Any condition (eg, chronic cough) that, in the opinion of the investigator, would interfere with evaluation of the investigational product or interpretation of subject safety or study results
  • Employees of the clinical study site, any other individuals involved with the conduct of the study, or immediate family members of such individuals
