2 Dosage And Administration

For intramuscular use only

2.1 Dose And Schedule

The dose and schedule for Fluzone Quadrivalent are presented in Table 1.Table 1: Dose and Schedule for Fluzone QuadrivalentAgeDoseSchedule"-" Indicates information is not applicable6 months through 35 monthsOne or two doses1 or 2 doses depends on vaccination history as per Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices annual recommendations on prevention and control of influenza with vaccines, 0.25 mL eachIf 2 doses, administer at least 4 weeks apart36 months through 8 yearsOne or two doses, 0.5 mL eachIf 2 doses, administer at least 4 weeks apart9 years and olderOne dose, 0.5 mL-

2.2 Administration

Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and/or discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. If any of these defects or conditions exist, Fluzone Quadrivalent should not be administered.Before administering a dose of vaccine, shake the prefilled syringe or vial. Withdraw one dose of vaccine from the single-dose vial using a sterile needle and syringe. Use a separate sterile needle and syringe for each dose withdrawn from the multi-dose vial.The preferred sites for intramuscular injection are the anterolateral aspect of the thigh in infants 6 months through 11 months of age, the anterolateral aspect of the thigh (or the deltoid muscle if muscle mass is adequate) in persons 12 months through 35 months of age, or the deltoid muscle in persons ≥36 months of age. The vaccine should not be injected into the gluteal area or areas where there may be a major nerve trunk.Do not administer this product intravenously, intradermally, or subcutaneously.Fluzone Quadrivalent should not be combined through reconstitution or mixed with any other vaccine.

3 Dosage Forms And Strengths

Fluzone Quadrivalent is a suspension for injection.Fluzone Quadrivalent is supplied in 4 presentations:1) Prefilled single-dose syringe (pink syringe plunger rod), 0.25 mL, for persons 6 months through 35 months of age.2) Prefilled single-dose syringe (clear syringe plunger rod), 0.5 mL, for persons 36 months of age and older.3) Single-dose vial, 0.5 mL, for persons 36 months of age and older.4) Multi-dose vial, 5 mL, for persons 6 months of age and older.

4 Contraindications

Do not administer Fluzone Quadrivalent to anyone with a history of a severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any component of the vaccine [see Description (11)], including egg protein, or to a previous dose of any influenza vaccine.

5.1 Guillain-Barré Syndrome

The 1976 swine influenza vaccine was associated with an elevated risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). Evidence for a causal relation of GBS with other influenza vaccines is inconclusive; if an excess risk exists, it is probably slightly more than 1 additional case per 1 million persons vaccinated. (See ref. 1) If GBS has occurred within 6 weeks following previous influenza vaccination, the decision to give Fluzone Quadrivalent should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.

5.2 Preventing And Managing Allergic Reactions

Appropriate medical treatment and supervision must be available to manage possible anaphylactic reactions following administration of Fluzone Quadrivalent.

5.3 Altered Immunocompetence

If Fluzone Quadrivalent is administered to immunocompromised persons, including those receiving immunosuppressive therapy, the expected immune response may not be obtained.

5.4 Limitations Of Vaccine Effectiveness

Vaccination with Fluzone Quadrivalent may not protect all recipients.

Other

Children 6 Months Through 8 Years of AgeStudy 1 (NCT01240746, see http://clinicaltrials.gov) was a single-blind, randomized, active-controlled multi-center safety and immunogenicity study conducted in the US. In this study, children 6 months through 35 months of age received one or two 0.25 mL doses of either Fluzone Quadrivalent or one of two formulations of a comparator trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV-1 or TIV-2), and children 3 years through 8 years of age received one or two 0.5 mL doses of either Fluzone Quadrivalent, TIV-1, or TIV-2. Each of the trivalent formulations contained an influenza type B virus that corresponded to one of the two type B viruses in Fluzone Quadrivalent (a type B virus of the Victoria lineage or a type B virus of the Yamagata lineage). For participants who received two doses, the doses were administered approximately 4 weeks apart. The safety analysis set included 1841 children 6 months through 35 months of age and 2506 children 3 years through 8 years of age. Among participants 6 months through 8 years of age in the three vaccine groups combined, 49.3% were female (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 49.2%; TIV-1, 49.8%; TIV-2, 49.4%), 58.4% Caucasian (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 58.4%; TIV-1, 58.9%; TIV-2, 57.8%), 20.2% Black (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 20.5%; TIV-1, 19.9%; TIV-2, 19.1%), 14.1% Hispanic (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 14.3%; TIV-1, 13.2%; TIV-2, 14.7%), and 7.3% were of other racial/ethnic groups (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 6.8%; TIV-1, 8.0%; TIV-2, 8.5%). Table 2 and Table 3 summarize solicited injection-site and systemic adverse reactions reported within 7 days post-vaccination via diary cards. Participants were monitored for unsolicited adverse events for 28 days after each dose and serious adverse events (SAEs) during the 6 months following the last dose.Table 2: Study 1NCT01240746: Percentage of Solicited Injection-site and Systemic Adverse Reactions Within 7 Days After Vaccination in Children 6 Months Through 35 Months of Age (Safety Analysis Set)The safety analysis set includes all persons who received at least one dose of study vaccineFluzone QuadrivalentFluzone Quadrivalent containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage)(NN is the number of participants in the safety analysis set=1223)TIV-12010-2011 Fluzone TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), licensed(B Victoria)(N=310)TIV-2Investigational TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage), non-licensed(B Yamagata)(N=308)Any(%)Grade 2Grade 2 - Injection-site pain: sufficiently discomforting to interfere with normal behavior or activities;

6.2 Post-Marketing Experience

  • Currently, there are no post-marketing data available for Fluzone Quadrivalent vaccine.The following events have been spontaneously reported during the post-approval use of the trivalent formulation of Fluzone. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to vaccine exposure. Adverse events were included based on one or more of the following factors: severity, frequency of reporting, or strength of evidence for a causal relationship to Fluzone.Blood and Lymphatic System Disorders: Thrombocytopenia, lymphadenopathyImmune System Disorders: Anaphylaxis, other allergic/hypersensitivity reactions (including urticaria, angioedema)Eye Disorders: Ocular hyperemiaNervous System Disorders: Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), convulsions, febrile convulsions, myelitis (including encephalomyelitis and transverse myelitis), facial palsy (Bell's palsy), optic neuritis/neuropathy, brachial neuritis, syncope (shortly after vaccination), dizziness, paresthesiaVascular Disorders: Vasculitis, vasodilatation/flushingRespiratory, Thoracic and Mediastinal Disorders: Dyspnea, pharyngitis, rhinitis, cough, wheezing, throat tightnessSkin and Subcutaneous Tissue Disorders: Stevens-Johnson syndromeGeneral Disorders and Administration Site Conditions: Pruritus, asthenia/fatigue, pain in extremities, chest painGastrointestinal Disorders: Vomiting

Teratogenic Effects

Pregnancy Category B: A developmental and reproductive toxicity study has been performed in female rabbits at a dose approximately 20 times the human dose (on a mg/kg basis) and has revealed no evidence of impaired female fertility or harm to the fetus due to Fluzone Quadrivalent. There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, Fluzone Quadrivalent should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.In the developmental and reproductive toxicity study, female rabbits were administered Fluzone Quadrivalent or control saline (each 0.5 mL/dose) by intramuscular injection 24 and 10 days before insemination, and on Days 6, 12, and 27 of gestation. The administration of Fluzone Quadrivalent did not result in systemic maternal toxicity (no adverse clinical signs and no change in body weight or food consumption). In addition, no adverse effects on pregnancy, parturition, lactation, or embryo-fetal or pre-weaning development were observed. There were no vaccine-related fetal malformations or other evidence of teratogenesis noted in this study.Sanofi Pasteur Inc. is maintaining a prospective pregnancy exposure registry to collect data on pregnancy outcomes and newborn health status following vaccination with Fluzone Quadrivalent during pregnancy. Healthcare providers are encouraged to enroll women who receive Fluzone Quadrivalent during pregnancy in Sanofi Pasteur Inc.'s vaccination pregnancy registry by calling 1-800-822-2463.

8.3 Nursing Mothers

It is not known whether Fluzone Quadrivalent is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Fluzone Quadrivalent is administered to a nursing woman.

8.4 Pediatric Use

Safety and effectiveness of Fluzone Quadrivalent in children below the age of 6 months have not been established.

8.5 Geriatric Use

Safety and immunogenicity of Fluzone Quadrivalent were evaluated in adults 65 years of age and older. [See Clinical Studies (14.3).] Antibody responses to Fluzone Quadrivalent are lower in persons ≥65 years of age than in younger adults.

11 Description

Fluzone Quadrivalent (Influenza Vaccine) for intramuscular injection is an inactivated influenza vaccine, prepared from influenza viruses propagated in embryonated chicken eggs. The virus-containing allantoic fluid is harvested and inactivated with formaldehyde. Influenza virus is concentrated and purified in a linear sucrose density gradient solution using a continuous flow centrifuge. The virus is then chemically disrupted using a non-ionic surfactant, octylphenol ethoxylate (Triton® X-100), producing a "split virus". The split virus is further purified and then suspended in sodium phosphate-buffered isotonic sodium chloride solution. The Fluzone Quadrivalent process uses an additional concentration factor after the ultrafiltration step in order to obtain a higher hemagglutinin (HA) antigen concentration. Antigens from the four strains included in the vaccine are produced separately and then combined to make the quadrivalent formulation.Fluzone Quadrivalent suspension for injection is clear and slightly opalescent in color.Antibiotics are not used in the manufacture of Fluzone Quadrivalent.The Fluzone Quadrivalent prefilled syringe and vial presentations are not made with natural rubber latex.Fluzone Quadrivalent is standardized according to United States Public Health Service requirements and is formulated to contain HA of each of the following four influenza strains recommended for the 2017-2018 influenza season: A/Michigan/45/2015 X-275 (H1N1), A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 X-263B (H3N2), B/Phuket/3073/2013 (B Yamagata lineage), and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (B Victoria lineage). The amounts of HA and other ingredients per dose of vaccine are listed in Table 6. The single-dose, pre-filled syringe (0.25 mL and 0.5 mL) and the single-dose vial (0.5 mL) are manufactured and formulated without thimerosal or any other preservative. The 5 mL multi-dose vial presentation contains thimerosal, a mercury derivative, added as a preservative. Each 0.5 mL dose from the multi-dose vial contains 25 mcg mercury. Each 0.25 mL dose from the multi-dose vial contains 12.5 mcg mercury.Table 6: Fluzone Quadrivalent IngredientsIngredientQuantity(per dose)Fluzone Quadrivalent0.25 mL DoseFluzone Quadrivalent0.5 mL Dose"-" Indicates information is not applicableActive Substance: Split influenza virus, inactivated strainsper United States Public Health Service (USPHS) requirement:30 mcg HA total60 mcg HA total  A (H1N1)7.5 mcg HA15 mcg HA  A (H3N2)7.5 mcg HA15 mcg HA  B/(Victoria lineage)7.5 mcg HA15 mcg HA  B/(Yamagata lineage)7.5 mcg HA15 mcg HAOther:  Sodium phosphate-buffered isotonic sodium chloride solutionQSQuantity Sufficient to appropriate volumeQS to appropriate volume  Formaldehyde≤50 mcg≤100 mcg  Octylphenol ethoxylate≤125 mcg≤250 mcgPreservative  Single-dose presentations--  Multi-dose presentation (thimerosal) 12.5 mcg mercury25 mcg mercury

12.1 Mechanism Of Action

Influenza illness and its complications follow infection with influenza viruses. Global surveillance of influenza identifies yearly antigenic variants. Since 1977, antigenic variants of influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) viruses and influenza B viruses have been in global circulation. Since 2001, two distinct lineages of influenza B (Victoria and Yamagata lineages) have co-circulated worldwide. Protection from influenza virus infection has not been correlated with a specific level of hemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibody titer post-vaccination. However, in some human studies, antibody titers ≥1:40 have been associated with protection from influenza illness in up to 50% of subjects. (See ref. 2) (See ref. 3)Antibodies against one influenza virus type or subtype confer limited or no protection against another. Furthermore, antibodies to one antigenic variant of influenza virus might not protect against a new antigenic variant of the same type or subtype. Frequent development of antigenic variants through antigenic drift is the virologic basis for seasonal epidemics and the reason for the usual change of one or more new strains in each year's influenza vaccine. Therefore, influenza vaccines are standardized to contain the hemagglutinins of influenza virus strains representing the influenza viruses likely to be circulating in the US during the influenza season.Annual vaccination with the influenza vaccine is recommended because immunity during the year after vaccination declines and because circulating strains of influenza virus change from year to year.

13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment Of Fertility

Fluzone Quadrivalent has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential. A reproductive study of female rabbits vaccinated with Fluzone Quadrivalent was performed and revealed no evidence of impaired female fertility [see Pregnancy (8.1)].

14 Clinical Studies

The effectiveness of Fluzone Quadrivalent was demonstrated based on clinical endpoint efficacy data for Fluzone (trivalent influenza vaccine) and on an evaluation of serum HI antibody responses to Fluzone Quadrivalent. Fluzone Quadrivalent, an inactivated influenza vaccine that contains the hemagglutinins of two influenza A subtype viruses and two influenza type B viruses, is manufactured according to the same process as Fluzone.

14.1 Efficacy Of Fluzone (Trivalent Influenza Vaccine) In Children 6 Through 24 Months Of Age

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted at a single US center during the 1999-2000 (Year 1) and 2000-2001 (Year 2) influenza seasons. The intent-to-treat analysis set included a total of 786 children 6 through 24 months of age. Participants received two doses of either Fluzone (N = 525) or a placebo (N = 261). Among all randomized participants in both years, the mean age was 13.8 months; 52.5% were male, 50.8% were Caucasian, 42.0% were Black, and 7.2% were of other racial groups. Cases of influenza were identified through active and passive surveillance for influenza-like illness or acute otitis media and confirmed by culture. Influenza-like illness was defined as fever with signs or symptoms of an upper respiratory infection. Vaccine efficacy against all influenza viral types and subtypes was a secondary endpoint and is presented in Table 7.Table 7: Estimated Efficacy of Fluzone Against Culture-Confirmed Influenza in Children Aged 6 through 24 Months during the 1999-2000 and 2000-2001 Influenza Seasons – Intent-to-Treat Analysis SetThe intent-to-treat analysis set includes all enrolled participants who were randomly assigned to receive Fluzone or placebo and vaccinatedFluzoneFluzone: 1999-2000 formulation containing A/Beijing/262/95 (H1N1), A/Sydney/15/97 (H3N2), and B/Yamanashi/166/98 (Yamagata lineage) and 2000-2001 formulation containing A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1), A/Panama/2007/99 (H3N2), and B/Yamanashi/166/98 (Yamagata lineage)PlaceboPlacebo: 0.4% NaClFluzone vs. PlaceboYearnn is the number of participants with culture-confirmed influenza for the given year of study as listed in the first columnNN is the number of participants randomly assigned to receive Fluzone or placebo for the given year of study as listed in the column headers (intent-to-treat analysis set)Rate(n/N)Rate (%) = (n/N) * 100(95% CI)nNRate(n/N)(95% CI)Relative Risk(95% CI)Percent Relative ReductionRelative reduction in vaccine efficacy was defined as (1-relative risk) × 100 (95% CI)Year 1Includes all culture confirmed influenza cases throughout the study duration for Year 1 (12 months of follow-up)(1999-2000)152735.5(3.1; 8.9)2213815.9(10.3; 23.1)0.34 (0.18; 0.64)66 (36; 82)Year 2 Includes all culture-confirmed influenza cases throughout the study duration for Year 2 (6 months of follow-up)(2000-2001)92523.6(1.6; 6.7)41233.3(0.9; 8.1)1.10 (0.34; 3.50)-10 (-250; 66)

14.2 Efficacy Of Fluzone (Trivalent Influenza Vaccine) In Adults

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted in a single US center during the 2007-2008 influenza season. Participants received one dose of either Fluzone vaccine (N = 813), an active comparator (N = 814), or placebo (N = 325). The intent-to-treat analysis set included 1138 healthy adults who received Fluzone or placebo. Participants were 18 through 49 years of age (mean age was 23.3 years); 63.3% were female, 83.1% were Caucasian, and 16.9% were of other racial/ethnic groups. Cases of influenza were identified through active and passive surveillance and confirmed by cell culture and/or real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Influenza-like illness was defined as an illness with at least 1 respiratory symptom (cough or nasal congestion) and at least 1 constitutional symptom (fever or feverishness, chills, or body aches). Vaccine efficacy of Fluzone against all influenza viral types and subtypes is presented in Table 8.Table 8: Estimated Efficacy of Fluzone Vaccine Against Influenza in Adults Aged 18 through 49 Years during the 2007-2008 Influenza Season – Intent-to-Treat Analysis SetThe intent-to-treat analysis set includes all enrolled participants who were randomly assigned to receive Fluzone or placebo and vaccinatedLaboratory-Confirmed Symptomatic InfluenzaFluzoneFluzone: 2007-2008 formulation containing A/Solomon Islands/3/2006 (H1N1), A/Wisconsin/67/2005 (H3N2), and B/Malaysia/2506/2004 (Victoria lineage)(N=813)N is the number of participants randomly assigned to receive Fluzone or placeboPlaceboPlacebo: 0.9% NaCl(N=325)Fluzone vs. Placebonn is the number of participants satisfying the criteria listed in the first columnRate(%)Rate (%) = (n/N) * 100(95% CI)nRate(%)(95% CI)Relative Risk(95% CI)Percent Relative ReductionRelative reduction in vaccine efficacy was defined as (1 - relative risk) × 100 (95% CI)Positive culture212.6(1.6; 3.9)319.5(6.6; 13.3)0.27 (0.16; 0.46)73 (54; 84) Positive PCR283.4(2.3; 4.9)3510.8(7.6; 14.7)0.32 (0.20; 0.52)68 (48; 80) Positive culture, positive PCR, or both283.4(2.3; 4.9)3510.8(7.6; 14.7)0.32 (0.20; 0.52)68 (48; 80)

14.3 Immunogenicity Of Fluzone Quadrivalent In Children 6 Months Through 8 Years Of Age

In Study 1 (NCT01240746) [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)], 1419 children 6 months through 35 months of age and 2101 children 3 years through 8 years of age were included in the per-protocol immunogenicity analysis. Participants received one or two 0.25 mL doses or one or two 0.5 mL doses, respectively of Fluzone Quadrivalent, TIV-1, or TIV-2. For participants who received two doses, the doses were administered approximately 4 weeks apart. The distribution of demographic characteristics was similar to that of the safety analysis [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)].HI antibody geometric mean titers (GMTs) and seroconversion rates 28 days following vaccination with Fluzone Quadrivalent were non-inferior to those following each TIV for all four strains, based on pre-specified criteria (see Table9 and Table10).Table9: Study 1NCT01240746: Non-inferiority of Fluzone Quadrivalent Relative to TIV for Each Strain by HI Antibody GMTs at 28 Days Post-Vaccination, Persons 6 Months Through 8 Years of Age (Per-protocol Analysis Set)Per-protocol analysis set included all persons who had no study protocol deviationsAntigen StrainFluzone QuadrivalentFluzone Quadrivalent containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage)NN is the number of participants in the per-protocol analysis set=2339Pooled TIVPooled TIV group includes participants vaccinated with either TIV-1 or TIV-2N=1181GMT Ratio (95% CI)Non-inferiority was demonstrated if the lower limit of the 2-sided 95% CI of the ratio of GMTs (Fluzone Quadrivalent divided by pooled TIV for the A strains, or the TIV containing the corresponding B strain) was >0.66GMTGMTA (H1N1)112410961.03 (0.93; 1.14)A (H3N2)8228280.99 (0.91; 1.08)Fluzone QuadrivalentN=2339TIV-12010-2011 Fluzone TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), licensed(B Victoria)N=582TIV-2Investigational TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage), non-licensed(B Yamagata)N=599GMT Ratio (95% CI)GMTGMTGMTB/Brisbane/60/2008(B Victoria)86.164.3(19.5)TIV-2 did not contain B/Brisbane/60/20081.34 (1.20; 1.50)B/Florida/04/2006(B Yamagata)61.5(16.3)TIV-1 did not contain B/Florida/04/200658.31.06 (0.94; 1.18)Table10: Study 1NCT01240746: Non-inferiority of Fluzone Quadrivalent Relative to TIV for Each Strain by Seroconversion Rates at 28 Days Post-Vaccination, Persons 6 Months Through 8 Years of Age (Per-protocol Analysis Set)Per-protocol analysis set included all persons who had no study protocol deviationsAntigen StrainFluzone QuadrivalentFluzone Quadrivalent containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage)NN is the number of participants in the per-protocol analysis set=2339Pooled TIVPooled TIV group includes participants vaccinated with either TIV-1 or TIV-2N=1181Difference of Seroconversion Rates(95% CI)Non-inferiority was demonstrated if the lower limit of the 2-sided 95% CI of the difference in seroconversion rates (Fluzone Quadrivalent minus pooled TIV for the A strains, or the TIV containing the corresponding B strain) was >-10%SeroconversionSeroconversion: Paired samples with pre-vaccination HI titer <1:10 and post-vaccination titer ≥1:40 or a minimum 4-fold increase for participants with pre-vaccination titer ≥1:10 (%)A (H1N1)92.491.40.9 (-0.9; 3.0)A (H3N2)88.084.23.8 (1.4; 6.3)Fluzone QuadrivalentN=2339TIV-12010-2011 Fluzone TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), licensed(B Victoria)N=582TIV-2Investigational TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage), non-licensed(B Yamagata)N=599Difference of Seroconversion Rates(95% CI)Seroconversion (%)B/Brisbane/60/2008(B Victoria)71.861.1(20.0)TIV-2 did not contain B/Brisbane/60/200810.7 (6.4; 15.1)B/Florida/04/2006(B Yamagata)66.1(17.9)TIV-1 did not contain B/Florida/04/200664.02.0 (-2.2; 6.4)Non-inferiority immunogenicity criteria based on HI antibody GMTs and seroconversion rates were also met when age subgroups (6 months to <36 months and 3 years to <9 years) were examined.

In Study 2 (NCT00988143) [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)], 565 adults 18 years of age and older who had received one dose of Fluzone Quadrivalent, TIV-1, or TIV-2 were included in the per-protocol immunogenicity analysis. The distribution of demographic characteristics was similar to that of the safety analysis [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)].HI antibody GMTs 21 days following vaccination with Fluzone Quadrivalent were non-inferior to those following each TIV for all four strains, based on pre-specified criteria (see Table11).Table11: Study 2NCT00988143: Non-inferiority of Fluzone Quadrivalent Relative to TIV for Each Strain by HI Antibody GMTs at 21 Days Post-Vaccination, Adults 18 Years of Age and Older (Per-protocol Analysis Set)Per-protocol analysis set included all persons who had no study protocol deviationsAntigen StrainFluzone QuadrivalentFluzone Quadrivalent containing A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1), A/Uruguay/716/2007 (H3N2), B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage)NN is the number of participants in the per-protocol analysis set=190Pooled TIVPooled TIV group includes participants vaccinated with either TIV-1 or TIV-2N=375GMT Ratio(95% CI)Non-inferiority was demonstrated if the lower limit of the 2-sided 95% CI of the ratio of GMTs (Fluzone Quadrivalent divided by pooled TIV for the A strains, or the TIV containing the corresponding B strain) was >2/3GMTGMTA (H1N1)1611511.06 (0.87; 1.31)A (H3N2)3043390.90 (0.70; 1.15)Fluzone QuadrivalentN=190TIV-12009-2010 Fluzone TIV containing A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1), A/Uruguay/716/2007 (H3N2), and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), licensed(B Victoria)N=187TIV-22008-2009 Fluzone TIV containing A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1), A/Uruguay/716/2007 (H3N2), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage), licensed(B Yamagata)N=188GMT Ratio(95% CI)GMTGMTGMTB/Brisbane/60/2008(B Victoria)101114(44.0)TIV-2 did not contain B/Brisbane/60/20080.89 (0.70; 1.12)B/Florida/04/2006(B Yamagata)155(78.1)TIV-1 did not contain B/Florida/04/20061351.15 (0.93; 1.42)

14.5 Immunogenicity Of Fluzone Quadrivalent In Geriatric Adults ≥65 Years Of Age

In Study 3 (NCT01218646) [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)], 660 adults 65 years of age and older were included in the per-protocol immunogenicity analysis. The distribution of demographic characteristics was similar to that of the safety analysis [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)].HI antibody GMTs 21 days following vaccination with Fluzone Quadrivalent were non-inferior to those following TIV for all four strains, based on pre-specified criteria (see Table 12). Seroconversion rates 21 days following Fluzone Quadrivalent were non-inferior to those following TIV for H3N2, B/Brisbane, and B/Florida, but not for H1N1 (see Table 13). The HI antibody GMT following Fluzone Quadrivalent was higher than that following TIV-1 for B/Florida but not higher than that following TIV-2 for B/Brisbane, based on pre-specified criteria (the lower limit of the 2-sided 95% CI of the ratio of the GMTs [Fluzone Quadrivalent divided by TIV] >1.5 for each B strain in Fluzone Quadrivalent compared with the corresponding B strain not contained in each TIV). Seroconversion rates following Fluzone Quadrivalent were higher than those following TIV for the B strain not contained in each respective TIV, based on pre-specified criteria (the lower limit of the two 2-sided 95% CI of the difference of the seroconversion rates [Fluzone Quadrivalent minus TIV] >10% for each B strain in Fluzone Quadrivalent compared with the corresponding B strain not contained in each TIV).Table 12: Study 3NCT01218646: Non-inferiority of Fluzone Quadrivalent Relative to TIV for Each Strain by HI Antibody GMTs at 21 Days Post-Vaccination, Adults 65 Years of Age and Older (Per-protocol Analysis Set)Per-protocol analysis set included all persons who had no study protocol deviationsAntigen StrainFluzone QuadrivalentFluzone Quadrivalent containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage)NN is the number of participants in the per-protocol analysis set=220Pooled TIVPooled TIV group includes participants vaccinated with either TIV-1 or TIV-2N=440GMT Ratio (95% CI)Non-inferiority was demonstrated if the lower limit of the 2-sided 95% CI of the ratio of GMTs (Fluzone Quadrivalent divided by pooled TIV for the A strains, or the TIV containing the corresponding B strain) was >0.66GMTGMTA (H1N1)2312700.85 (0.67; 1.09)A (H3N2)5013241.55 (1.25; 1.92)Fluzone QuadrivalentN=220TIV-12010-2011 Fluzone TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), licensed(B Victoria)N=219TIV-2Investigational TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage), non-licensed(B Yamagata)N=221GMT Ratio (95% CI)GMTGMTGMTB/Brisbane/60/2008(B Victoria)73.857.9(42.2)TIV-2 did not contain B/Brisbane/60/20081.27 (1.05; 1.55)B/Florida/04/2006(B Yamagata)61.1(28.5)TIV-1 did not contain B/Florida/04/200654.81.11 (0.90; 1.37)Table 13: Study 3NCT01218646: Non-inferiority of Fluzone Quadrivalent Relative to TIV for Each Strain by Seroconversion Rates at 21 Days Post-Vaccination, Adults 65 Years of Age and Older (Per-protocol Analysis Set)Per-protocol analysis set included all persons who had no study protocol deviationsAntigen StrainFluzone QuadrivalentFluzone Quadrivalent containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage)NN is the number of participants in the per-protocol analysis set=220Pooled TIVPooled TIV group includes participants vaccinated with either TIV-1 or TIV-2N=440Difference of Seroconversion Rate(95% CI)Non-inferiority was demonstrated if the lower limit of the 2-sided 95% CI of the difference in seroconversion rates (Fluzone Quadrivalent minus pooled TIV for the A strains, or the TIV containing the corresponding B strain) was >-10%SeroconversionSeroconversion: Paired samples with pre-vaccination HI titer <1:10 and post-vaccination titer ≥1:40 or a minimum 4-fold increase for participants with pre-vaccination titer ≥1:10(%)A (H1N1)65.9169.77-3.86 (-11.50; 3.56)A (H3N2)69.0959.329.77 (1.96; 17.20)Fluzone QuadrivalentN=220TIV-12010-2011 Fluzone TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (Victoria lineage), licensed(B Victoria)N=219TIV-2Investigational TIV containing A/California/07/2009 (H1N1), A/Victoria/210/2009 (H3N2), and B/Florida/04/2006 (Yamagata lineage), non-licensed(B Yamagata)N=221Difference of Seroconversion Rate(95% CI)Seroconversion(%)B/Brisbane/60/2008(B Victoria)28.6418.72(8.60)TIV-2 did not contain B/Brisbane/60/20089.91 (1.96; 17.70)B/Florida/04/2006(B Yamagata)33.18(9.13)TIV-1 did not contain B/Florida/04/200631.221.96 (-6.73; 10.60)
