Strategies for the Development of aPandemic
Influenza Vaccine
  • Short term (lt 3 years) to develop as quickly as
    possible pandemic vaccines based on existing
    technology (Split vaccine/ egg-based technology)
  • Medium / long term to improve the performance of
    influenza vaccines and encourage RD into new
    vaccine approaches, including cell culture

Sanofi Pasteurs Pandemic Preparedness France
  • Research program initiated in 2002
  • NIAID research grant Production and testing of
    egg- and cell-based H5N1 and H7N1 vaccine strains
  • FLUPAN (EC) contract
  • Cell-based H7N1 vaccine production in PER.C6?
    cells (Crucell NV)
  • FLUPAN Phase 1 clinical study began in Norway in
    September 2006
  • Pilot scale egg-based production of H5N1 vaccines
    since 2004

Summary - Preclinical
  • An inactivated H5N1 pandemic flu vaccine, at a
    dose level of 30 µg HA adjuvanted with aluminum
    hydroxide (600 µg Al) was immunogenic in monkeys.
  • Immunization with the alum-adjuvanted H5N1 did
    not induce disease exacerbation when monkeys were
    challenged with parental viral strain.
  • Virus titration revealed that the animals
    receiving the aluminium hydroxide-adjuvanted
    vaccine were protected from viral challenge.
  • Protection was also observed with the
    unadjuvanted vaccine.

Clinical H5N1 sanofi pasteur France
  • Design
  • Randomised, open, multicenter study conducted in
  • 300 healthy adults, 50/group 18-40 years old
  • Six vaccine formulations
  • 7.5, 15 or 30 µg of hemagglutinin (HA) with or
    without aluminium hydroxide adjuvant (Ad)
  • Two i.m. vaccinations (deltoid), 21 days apart
  • Objectives
  • Immunogenicity after each vaccination
  • Safety profile within 21 days following each
  • Designed for EU Core Pandemic Dossier
  • Lancet 2006. 3671657-1664

  • Safety
  • D0-7 and D21-28 solicited AEs recorded
  • Erythema, Swelling, Induration, Ecchymosis gt0cm,
  • Fever (oral gt37.5C), Headache, Malaise, Myalgia,
  • D0-42 SAEs and unsolicited AEs recorded
  • Immunogenicity
  • D0, 21, D42 assayed by UK HPA (M. Zambon)
  • Haemagglutination inhibition (HI) using horse
    erythrocytes (LLOD 18)
  • Seroneutralization (SN) assay (LLOD 12)
  • Statistics
  • Descriptive analysis on intent-to-treat population

Clinical Results
  • Population
  • 300 subjects completed up to D42
  • No drop-outs, lost to follow-up or withdrawals
  • Mean age per group 24 26 years
  • Male/female per group 0.8 - 1.9
  • Safety
  • No SAEs D0-42
  • No fever with oral temp gt38C
  • No severe injection site pain

Immunogenicity Results
  • Population
  • Naïve pre-vaccination antibody below LLOD, given
    value of LLOD/2(one positive subject by HI SN,
    one borderline by SN only)
  • Seroconversionseroprotection
  • Presentation of results
  • Most relevant assessment criteria
  • Distribution of titers i.e., various
    seroconversion thresholds
  • Fold-rises

Immunogenicity Reverse cumulative HI titer
distribution (horse erythrocytes)
Immunogenicity Reverse cumulative
Seroneutralization (SN) titer distribution
Clinical Key Findings
  • H5N1 vaccine is safe and well tolerated
  • HI and SN results show similar trends
  • Two doses needed to optimize immune response
  • Two doses of 30µgAl induced response in gt60 of
    subjects HI titer gt32 gt2-fold rise in SN titer
  • Encouraging immune response seen with lower
  • gt40 of subjects seropositive (HI test) after two
    doses of 7.5µg, 15µg or 15µgAl
  • Adjuvant effect is seen with 30µg HA after the
    2nd dose

Next Steps sanofi pasteur, France
  • Phase II safety and immunogenicity clinical study
    conducted in 2006
  • Core mock-up dossier preparation and potential
    rolling submission

Sanofi Pasteurs Pandemic Preparedness United
  • In response to the US Government RFP
  • May 2004 production of 8000 doses of a
    monovalent H5N1 vaccine for clinical trials
    sponsored by the NIAID
  • September 2004 contract awarded for the supply
    of 2 million doses H5N1 vaccine from industrial
    scale batches
  • November 2004 contract awarded to establish and
    maintain flocks of egg-laying hens for the
    manufacture of vaccine at full capacity on a
    year-round basis
  • April 2005 contract awarded for the development
    of a cell culture vaccine
  • September 2005 H5N1 vaccine stockpile
  • Implementation of large scale production

  • First clinical study (phase I)
  • 451 healthy adults (18-64 years), 2 injections
    three weeks apart
  • Dosage 90, 45, 15, 7.5ug of hemagglutinin/placeb
  • Conclusion A two-dose regimen of 90 µg of
    subvirion H5N1 vaccine does not cause severe side
    effects and, in the majority of recipients,
    generates neutralizing antibody responses

  • Second clinical study (phase II)
  • Results of aluminum hydroxide adjuvanted H5N1
    vaccine trial to be presented by NIAID at the WHO
    meeting in February 2007

  • For all actors, including public health agencies
    and vaccine manufacturers, pandemic influenza
    vaccine development poses a challenge and
    requires strong cooperation
  • Financial support by national authorities,
    permanent dialog and interaction between public
    health authorities and vaccine companies,
    associated with active collaboration with
    academic research institutions and biotech
    companies are needed to meet such challenge
