Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hemagglutination Inhibition (HI) Antibody Titer [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Titers given as geometric mean titer (GMT) were presented for all three vaccine influenza virus strains

  • Number of Seroprotected Subjects [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A seroprotected subject is a subject with a serum HI antibody titer ≥ 1:40

  • Number of Seroconverted Subjects [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A seroconverted subject is a subject with a pre-vaccination serum HI titer < 1:10 and a post-vaccination serum HI titer ≥ 1:40, or a pre-vaccination serum HI titer ≥ 1:10 and a fold increase (Day 21/Day 0) ≥ 4

  • Seroconversion Factor [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seroconversion factor, defined as the fold increase in serum HI GMT post-vaccination compared to pre-vaccination (Day 0), is presented for all three vaccine influenza virus strains

  • Seroprotection Power [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seroprotection power is defined as the number of subject who had a pre-vaccination titer < 1:40 and a post-vaccination titer ≥ 1:40


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Reporting Solicited Local Symptoms [ Time Frame: During the 4-day (Day 0-3) post-vaccination period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Solicited local symptoms assessed include ecchymosis, induration, pain, redness, and swelling.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Solicited General Symptoms [ Time Frame: During the 4-day (Day 0-3) post-vaccination period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Solicited general symptoms assessed include arthralgia, fatigue, headache, myalgia, shivering, sweating, and fever.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Unsolicited Adverse Events (AE) [ Time Frame: During the 21-day (Day 0-20) post-vaccination period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation subject, temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Serious Adverse Events (SAE) [ Time Frame: During the entire study period (From Day 0 up to Day 21) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An SAE is any untoward medical occurrence that: results in death, is lifethreatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject, or may evolve into one of the outcomes listed above.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who the investigator believes that they can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol should be enrolled in the study.
  • A male or female aged 18 years or above at the time of the vaccination.
  • Written informed consent obtained from the subject.
  • Healthy subjects or with well-controlled chronic diseases as established by medical history and clinical examination before entering into the study.
  • If the subject is female, she must be of non-childbearing potential or if she is of childbearing potential, she must practice adequate contraception for 30 days prior to vaccination, have a negative pregnancy test and continue such precautions for 2 months after completion of the vaccination series.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Use of any investigational or non-registered product other than the study vaccine(s) within 30 days preceding the vaccination or planned use during the study period.
  • Chronic administration of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs within six months prior to the vaccine dose.
  • Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products within the three months preceding the administration of the study vaccine or planned during the study.
  • Administration of an influenza vaccine within 6 months preceding the study start.
  • Administration of an influenza vaccine other than the study vaccine during the entire study
  • Clinically or virologically confirmed influenza infection within 6 months preceding the study start
  • History of allergic disease or reactions likely to be exacerbated by any component of the vaccine.
  • Acute disease at the time of enrolment.
  • Acute clinically significant pulmonary, cardiovascular, hepatic or renal functional abnormality, as determined by physical examination or laboratory screening tests.
  • Not stabilized or clinically serious chronic underlying disease.
  • Lactating female.
  • History of chronic alcohol consumption and/or drug abuse.
  • Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, based on medical history and physical examination.
  • Any condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, prevents the subject from participation in the study.
