    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Immunogenicity parameters for hemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibody titers for the 3 vaccine strains 21 days after vaccination according to CHMP criteria. The immunogenicity parameters will be assessed according to the CHMP 'Note for guidance on harmonisation of requirements for influenza vaccines', 1997. Assessments will be done with the HI test in serum (all subjects) against all the 3 strains included in the seasonal vaccine. To confirm immunogenicity, at least one of the following CHMP criteria has to be met for each strain: Seroconversion rate: defined as a ≥4-fold increase in HI antibody titer and a titer of ≥1:40 to be reached in >30% of subjects; Seroprotection rate: defined as an HI antibody titer ≥1:40 to be reached in >60% of subjects; Geometric mean titer (GMT): defined as >2.0-fold increase in the GMT of HI antibodies.
    Parametri di immunogenicità sui titoli anticorpali in termini di inibizione dell'emoagglutinazione (HI) per i 3 ceppi di vaccino 21 giorni dopo il vaccino, conformemente ai criteri CHMP. I parametri di immunogenicità verranno valutati conformemente alla ''Nota-guida sull'armonizzazione dei requisiti per i vaccini influenzali'' del CHMP, 1997. La valutazione verrà eseguita col test HI, test in siero (tutti i soggetti) per tutti i 3 ceppi inclusi nel vaccino stagionale. Per confermare l'immunogenicità, è opportuno che ogni ceppo soddisfi almeno uno dei seguenti criteri CHMP: Tasso di sieroconversione: definito come un aumento ≥ di 4 volte nel titolo anticorpale HI e un titolo di ≥1:40 da raggiungere nel >30% dei pazienti; Tasso di sieroprotezione: definito come un titolo anticorpale HI ≥1:40 da raggiungere nel >60% dei pazienti; Titolo geometrico medio (GMT): definito come un aumento di 2,0 volte nel GMT degli anticorpi HI.

    21 giorni dopo il vaccino
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Immunogenicity parameters for HI antibody titers for the 3 vaccine strains 6 months after vaccination according to CHMP criteria. The immune response against the A/H1N1 vaccine strain and 4 selected circulating heterogeneous A/H1N1 influenza strains will be assessed with the HI test as well with the microneutralization method to measure the neutralizing influenza antibodies 3 weeks after vaccination versus baseline. A microneutralization and HI titre of 1:40 or more will be considered protective; Cellular immunity will be evaluated for the first 30 enrolled subjects. The following 2 types of cytokines for two influenza strains (the A/H1N1 vaccine strain and one A/H1N1 heterogeneous strain) will be evaluated for cellular immunity 3 weeks after vaccination versus baseline in order to test the impact of vaccination on T-lymphocyte proliferation: o influenza specific IFN gamma production o influenza specific IL-2 production; Solicited local and systemic adverse events (AEs); Unsolicited AEs; Tolerability and acceptability.
    Parametri di immunogenicità sui titoli anticorpali HI per i 3 ceppi di vaccino 6 mesi dopo il vaccino, conformemente ai criteri CHMP; La riposta immunitaria del ceppo vaccinale A/H1N1 e l'eterogeneità dei 4 ceppi influenzali isolati A/H1N1 in circolo sarà valutata tramite test HI, oltre che col metodo della microneutralizzazione, al fine di misurare, rispetto al basale, gli anticorpi che neutralizzano l'influenza 3 settimane dopo il vaccino. Una microneutralizzazione e un titolo HI di 1:40 o più verranno considerati protettivi. L'immunità cellulare verrà valutata per i primi 30 soggetti arruolati. La valutazione rispetto al basale relativa all'immunità cellulare dei seguenti 2 tipi di citochine (il ceppo vaccinale A/H1N1 e un ceppo eterogeneo A/H1N1) sarà effettuata 3 settimane dopo il vaccino, al fine di testare l'impatto del vaccino sulla proliferazione del linfocita T: o produzione di interferone gamma specifico per l'influenza o produzione di IL-2 specifico per l'influenza; Eventi avversi (AEs) sollecitati locali e sistemici; Eventi avversi non sollecitati; Tollerabilità e accettabilità.
