Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Humoral Immune Response in Terms of Hemagglutination Inhibition (HI) Antibodies Against Each of the 4 Vaccine Influenza Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 0 and Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Antibody titres were expressed as Geometric mean titers (GMTs). The vaccine strains assessed were Flu B/Florida/4/06 (Yamagata), FluB/Bri/60/08 (Victoria), Flu A/CAL/7/09 (H1N1) and Flu A/Victoria/210/09 (H3N2) antigens.

  • Number of Subjects Who Were Seroprotected for HI Antibodies Against Each of the 4 Vaccine Influenza Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 0 and Day 21 ] [ 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. The vaccine strains assessed were Yamagata, Victoria, H1N1 and H3N2 antigens.

  • Number of Seroconverted Subjects for HI Antibodies Against Each of the 4 Vaccine Influenza Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A seroconverted subject was defined as a subject who had either a pre-vaccination titer less than (<) 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. The vaccine strains assessed were Yamagata, Victoria, H1N1 and H3N2 antigens.

  • HI Antibody Seroconversion Factors (SCFs) Against Each of the 4 Vaccine Influenza Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SCFs were defined as the fold increase in serum HI GMTs post-vaccination compared to Day 0. The vaccine strains assessed were Yamagata, Victoria, H1N1 and H3N2 antigens.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any and Grade 3 Solicited Local Symptoms. [ Time Frame: During the 4-day (Days 0-3) post-vaccination period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Solicited local symptoms assessed were pain, redness and swelling. Any was defined as any solicited local symptom reported irrespective of intensity. Grade 3 pain was defined as pain that prevented normal everyday activities. Grade 3 redness and swelling were defined as redness/swelling greater than 100 millimeters (mm). i.e. >100mm.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any, Grade 3 and Related Solicited General Symptoms. [ Time Frame: During the 4-day (Days 0-3) post-vaccination period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Solicited general symptoms assessed were chest tightness, chills, cough, fatigue, headache, joint pain at other location, muscle pain, red eyes, sore throat, swelling of the face and fever [oral temperature ≥ 38.0 degrees Celsius (°C)]. Any = any solicited general symptom reported irrespective of intensity and relationship to vaccination. Related = symptoms considered by the investigator to have a causal relationship to vaccination. Grade 3 symptoms = symptoms that prevented normal activity. Grade 3 fever = oral temperature above 39.0°C

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any Unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs). [ Time Frame: During the 21-day (Days 0-20) post-vaccination period. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An unsolicited AE was defined as any AE (i.e. any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject, temporally associated with use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product) 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 grade or relation to vaccination.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Any and Related Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: During the entire study period (Day 0 - Day 20 after vaccination). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A serious adverse event was any untoward medical occurrence that resulted in death, was life threatening, required hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, resulted in disability/incapacity or was a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject. Any was defined as occurrence of any symptom regardless of intensity grade or relation to vaccination and related was an event assessed by the investigator as causally related to the study vaccination.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who the investigator believes that they can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol.
  • Written informed consent obtained from the subject
  • Male and female adults, 18 years of age and older in stable health as determined by investigator's clinical examination and assessment of subjects' medical history.
  • Female subjects of non-childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study.
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study, if the subject:

    • has practiced adequate contraception for 30 days prior to vaccination, and
    • has a negative pregnancy test on the day of vaccination, and
    • has agreed to continue adequate contraception during the entire treatment period and for 2 months after completion of the vaccination

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Administration of any influenza vaccine within 6 months preceding the study start or planned use of such vaccines during the study period.
  • Administration of any other vaccine(s) within 30 days prior to study enrolment or during the study period.
  • Use of any investigational or non-registered product (drug or vaccine) other than the study vaccine within 30 days preceding the dose of study vaccine, or planned use during the study period.
  • Acute disease and/or fever at the time of enrolment.
  • Significant acute or chronic, uncontrolled medical or psychiatric illness.
  • Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, based on medical history and physical examination.
  • Acute, clinically significant pulmonary, cardiovascular, hepatic or renal functional abnormality, based on history and physical examination.
  • Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
  • Presence of blood dyscrasias, including hemoglobinopathies and myelo- or lymphoproliferative disorder.
  • Chronic administration of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs within six months prior to study 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.
  • Any known or suspected allergy to any constituent of FLU-Q-QIV and/or a history of anaphylactic type reaction to consumption of eggs, and/or reactions to products containing mercury.
  • A history of severe adverse reaction to a previous influenza vaccination.
  • Pregnant and/or lactating/nursing female.
  • Any condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, prevents the subject from participation in the study.
