Details and patient eligibility


This is a specimen collection protocol designed with the purpose of understanding the immune responses to influenza in children and adult subjects through collection of blood specimens and influenza medical history data. This protocol will allow the investigators to evaluate influenza-specific immune responses to a variety of influenza strains in a broad age range of the U.S. population early and late in the 2010-2011 influenza season. Immune responses will be evaluated using blood samples. The underlying hypothesis for this protocol is that the detailed characterization of immune responses to influenza in subjects from different age groups will further the understanding of immune responses cross-reactivity and advance development of influenza vaccines that are cross-reactive against old, new and re-emerging influenza strains.
