IdStudy TitleThe Question the Study Seeks to Answer
10337A study looking at a vaccine for the H7N9 flu virus. The study will assess immune responses of both an injected and live weakened (nasal spray) vaccines and the adjuvant. It will also look at other possible side effects of the vaccines in the study.Will giving an non-live flu vaccine followed by a booster with a live vaccine produce a response to the flu strain, A/H7N9. Also, will the addition of an adjuvant, a substance added to the vaccine to help the effect of the flu vaccine, help to produce a better response.
