U.S. Swine Flu Vaccine Trials Set to Begin
Date:7/22/2009

Announcement comes day after first such program in world started in Australia

In the United States, several trials will be conducted concurrently, officials said.

"They have a really well-organized clinical trials infrastructure that is uniquely posed to do these kinds of studies when there's an emergency situation like there is now."

One of the NIAID studies will try to determine if one or two 15-microgram doses of the candidate H1N1 vaccine are sufficient to provoke an immune response in healthy adults aged 18 to 64 and in people aged 65 and older. Studies will also look at whether one or two doses of 30 microgra
