Official Title: A Phase IV, Single-Centre, Open-label Study to Evaluate the Immunogenicity and Safety of the 2012/2013 Formulation of the Enzira® Vaccine in Two Groups of Healthy Volunteers: 'Adults' (Aged 18 to 59 Years) and 'Older Adults' (Aged 60 Years or Older)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Percentage of Evaluable Participants Achieving Seroconversion or Significant Increase in Antibody Titre. [ Time Frame: Approximately 21 days after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    As per the criteria specified in the CPMP/BWP/214/96 Note for Guidance on Harmonisation of Requirements for Influenza Vaccines. For haemagglutination inhibition (HI), seroconversion (H1N1, H3N2, and B influenza virus strains) was defined as achieving a post-vaccination titre of ≥ 40 for those participants with a pre-vaccination HI titre of < 10. A significant increase (H1N1, H3N2, and B influenza virus strains) was defined as a four-fold or greater increase in HI titre for those participants with a pre-vaccination HI titre of ≥ 10.

  • The Geometric Mean Fold Increase (GMFI) in Antibody Titre After Vaccination. [ Time Frame: Approximately 21 days after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    GMFI (H1N1, H3N2, and B influenza virus strains) was defined as the geometric mean of the fold increases of post-vaccination antibody titre over the pre-vaccination antibody titre.

  • The Percentage of Evaluable Participants Achieving a HI Titre ≥ 40 or Single Radial Haemolysis (SRH) Area ≥ 25 mm2. [ Time Frame: Approximately 21 days after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    For the H1N1, H3N2, and B influenza virus strains. Note: No SRH data were collected.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency and Intensity of Any Solicited Adverse Events (AEs). [ Time Frame: During the 4 days after vaccination (Day 0 plus 3 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    The percentage of participants reporting any solicited AEs and the percentage of participants reporting any solicited AEs with severe intensity. Note: Intensity of solicited AEs was collected for temperature only.

    Solicited local AEs collected included induration >50 mm, erythema, ecchymosis, and pain at the vaccination site.

    Solicited systemic AEs collected included temperature above 38.0°C, chills, and malaise.

    Solicited AE intensity grading: Mild: symptoms were easily tolerated and there was no interference with daily activities; Moderate: enough discomfort to cause some interference with daily activities; Severe: symptoms that prevented normal, everyday activities.


  • Frequency of Any Unsolicited AEs. [ Time Frame: After vaccination until the end of the study; approximately 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The percentage of participants reporting any unsolicited AEs. Unsolicited AEs included AEs other than those specifically solicited.

Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Adults
Healthy volunteers aged 18 to 59 years received a single 0.5 mL dose of CSL Influenza Vaccine by intramuscular or subcutaneous injection.
Biological: CSL Influenza Vaccine
The study vaccine (CSL Influenza Vaccine) is a sterile, thiomersal-free suspension containing 45 mcg total haemagglutinin antigen per 0.5 mL dose (15 mcg each of the three recommended influenza strains for the Northern Hemisphere 2012/2013 influenza season). The vaccine will be administered by intramuscular or subcutaneous injection.
Other Names:
  • Enzira® vaccine
  • Afluria® vaccine
Experimental: Older Adults
Healthy volunteers aged 60 years or older received a single 0.5 mL dose of CSL Influenza Vaccine by intramuscular or subcutaneous injection.
Biological: CSL Influenza Vaccine
The study vaccine (CSL Influenza Vaccine) is a sterile, thiomersal-free suspension containing 45 mcg total haemagglutinin antigen per 0.5 mL dose (15 mcg each of the three recommended influenza strains for the Northern Hemisphere 2012/2013 influenza season). The vaccine will be administered by intramuscular or subcutaneous injection.
Other Names:
  • Enzira® vaccine
  • Afluria® vaccine
