New England Journal of Medicine releases study showing GSK's FluLaval Quadrivalent vaccine effective in preventing seasonal flu in children
Date:12/11/2013

er public health authorities to estimate each year what three strains might be predominant.

Virus strains that scientists refer to as A-strains traditionally cause the most cases of flu, so two A strains have been included in seasonal flu vaccines.  The other circulating strains, referred to as B-strains, derive from two distinct strain lineages.  In six of the past 11 flu seasons, the B-strain included in flu vaccines was not the predominant B-strain in circulation.  The new quadrivalent flu vaccines protect against both B strains, providing the broadest strain protection currently available.

GSK has developed two quadrivalent vaccines that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have licensed for use.  GSK markets these vaccines as FluLaval® Quadrivalent and Fluarix® Quadrivalent. Both vaccines are approved to be administered to individuals three years and older, and they have been shown to have comparable safety and tolerability to three-strain (trivalent) seasonal influenza vaccines.  Complete prescribing information for both vaccines is available at us.gsk.com.

About Seasonal Influenza

Seasonal influenza may cause three to five million cases of severe illness and up to 500,000 deaths per year worldwide.  Vaccination against influenza is considered one of the most effective ways of preventing mortality, complications and hospitalizations.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that children six months of age and older and adults receive an influenza shot annually.  More information about seasonal influenza can be found at http://flu.gov and http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/season/flu-season-2012-2013.htm.
