Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   37215   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6122   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Haemagglutinin Inhibition Test
    To detect the humoral immune response to influenza vaccination the haemagglutination inhibition (HAI) test will be performed at day 1, and 3-4 weeks following day 1.
    To evaluate the antibody responses, three parameters will be recorded:
    1. Fourfold titre rises, including seroconversions (defined as a serological outcome where the initial sample tests negative (below detection level of the assay) compared to a true positive result in the second sample i.e. fourfold above the detection limit)
    2. Achievement of titres 40, which are considered protective
    3. Geometric mean titres (GMT)

    Enzyme linked ImmunoSPOT (ELIspot) and memory B cell assay
    To enumerate the number of influenza specific plasma cells/ plasmablasts, an ELIspot assay will be performed on day 1, day 7 and 3-4 weeks following day 1.
    Memory b cells will be detected by culturing PBMCs for 6days with polyclonal mitogenic stimulants then quantifying by ELIspot.

    Analysis of clonality
    RNA will be isolated and to quantify clonality, variable genes will be sequenced from RNA of ASCs

    Cell-mediated responses
    Whole blood count, including lymphocyte subsets (CD3, CD4, CD8, CD19, CD16/56) will be measured from all participants. T cell subsets will also be further defined (central/ effector memory) by flow cytometry. To evaluate the cellular immune response to influenza vaccination, PBMC will be isolated from venous blood. T Helper cell populations in the PBMC samples will be analysed for their capacity to respond with proliferation and produce cytokines after in vitro stimulation with common mitogens and Influenza vaccine-derived antigens.
    Cell mediated responses to the 3 influenza variants will be assessed by IFN ELISPOT, Intracellular Cytokine (i.e. IFN, IL-2 and TNFα) detection by Flow Cytometry and assessment of proliferation of CD4 and CD8 T cells using CFSE dye dilution and analysis by Flow Cytometry.
