Experimental Protocol

Longitudinal study with time points at baseline (day 0), 24hr, day 7 and day 30. 136 total samples analyzed. This was a prospective cohort of previously healthy children 6 months to 14 years of age enrolled between October 2011 and February 2012. Thirty seven subjects were randomized to receive one dose of either LAIV (FluMist®, MedImmune) (n= 20) or TIV (Fluzone®, Sanofi Pasteur) (n= 17). Two exceptions were applied to the randomization: four children with ages between 6 months and 2 years old received TIV, since LAIV is not licensed on this age group, and four children with controlled asthma also received TIV following CDC’s recommendations. One child aged 6 months at the time of enrollment received two doses of the vaccine with one month interval apart, since it was his first influenza vaccination. Exclusion criteria included any medical comorbidities or chronic conditions (lung, kidney or heart disease), use of systemic steroids in the previous 2 weeks, and congenital or acquired immunodeficiencies. The 2011-2012 LAIV and TIV vaccines contained A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)-like, A/Perth/16/2009 (H3N2)-like and B/Brisbane/60/2008-like antigens, the same strains used on the 2010-2011 influenza vaccine. TIV recipients aged 6 to 35 months old received 0.25 mL intramuscularly and recipients aged 36 months and older received 0.5 mL. LAIV recipients received 0.2 mL by intranasal route, 0.1 mL per nostril. Blood samples were collected at four time points, on day zero prior to vaccination, and day 1, day 7 (range 6-8) and day 30 (range 27-33) post-vaccination.
