Sanofi Pasteur's Fluzone High-Dose Vaccine Significantly More Effective Than Standard Dose Fluzone Vaccine in Preventing Influenza in Adults 65 Years of Age and Older
Date:8/26/2013

onally, the study results suggested consistent clinical benefit across the study years, influenza virus types, clinical illness definitions, and laboratory methods of influenza confirmation. This large, multi-year trial also reaffirmed the safety of Fluzone High-Dose vaccine as demonstrated in previous studies.

"Influenza vaccines have been shown to offer public health benefits in preventing influenza and its complications in all age groups; however, older adults still have the highest rates of influenza-related hospitalization and death despite having high immunization rates," said John Shiver, Senior Vice President, Research and Development, Sanofi Pasteur. "This led Sanofi Pasteur to develop Fluzone High-Dose vaccine, which this trial has confirmed provides better protection against influenza compared to Fluzone vaccine in people 65 years of age and older."

Fluzone High-Dose vaccine was licensed in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in December 2009 based on the vaccine's safety profile and superior immunogenicity compared to Fluzone vaccine. Immunogenicity (the ability of a vaccine to trigger the body to produce antibodies against an infectious agent) is commonly used to evaluate vaccines in clinical trials. Fluzone High-Dose vaccine contains 60 mcg of hemagglutinin antigen per strain of influenza virus in the vaccine as compared to 15 mcg of influenza virus hemagglutinin antigen per strain of influenza virus in standard dose Fluzone vaccine. Fluzone High-Dose vaccine was licensed by the FDA under an accelerated approval process to address the medical need in older adults. As a requirement of the accelerated approval pathway, Sanofi Pasteur embarked on this large-scale, two-season, confirmatory efficacy trial, involving more than 30,000 participants 65 years of age and older, to evaluate the clinical benefit of Fluzone High-Dose vaccine compared t
