Recently Published Real-World Evidence Study Shows Effectiveness of Cell-Based Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccine Over Three Seasons

02 May 2024

• A real-world evidence (RWE) study recently published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases (OFID) examined three consecutive U.S. flu seasons in the United States. The study suggests that cell-based quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIVc) may have the potential to be more effective than egg-based vaccines (QIVe) in preventing test-confirmed influenza.1
• The study results reveal that the relative vaccine effectiveness of QIVc versus QIVe in prevention of test-confirmed influenza was at least 10% higher across three consecutive flu seasons, 2017–2020.

New Data at IDWeek 2023 Demonstrates Public Health Benefit Cost Savings with Cell-Based and Adjuvanted Influenza Vaccines

11 Oct 2023

• Data evaluating the impact of cell-based quadrivalent influenza vaccines suggests an additional 31%–39% of influenza cases may have been prevented among persons 0–64 years of age during the 2017-2020 U.S. flu seasons.1
• Vaccination of children 6 months to 17 years of age with cell-based quadrivalent influenza vaccines would be cost-effective in >95% of simulations, compared to traditional egg-based vaccines based on modeling data from 2011/12 and 2017/18 U.S. flu seasons.2
• Influenza vaccination with an adjuvanted quadrivalent influenza vaccine or standard-dose egg-based quadrivalent vaccine significantly reduced cardiovascular, respiratory, and other complications of influenza among U.S. adults 65 years of age and older over the 2018/19 and 2019/20 influenza seasons.3

CSL Seqirus Presents Real-World Evidence at ESWI Demonstrating the Impact of Influenza Vaccination Campaigns to Help Protect People and Healthcare Systems

• Results from a retrospective cohort study from 2015 to 2020 demonstrated a notable rise with increasing age in pneumonia-related medical encounters following an influenza encounter.1
• Results from a retrospective cohort study during the 2019/20 season demonstrated the benefit of an adjuvanted influenza vaccine in prevention of influenza-related medical encounters among adults 65 years and older.2
• Results from a study across three consecutive influenza seasons showed that vaccination with cell-based influenza vaccines resulted in lower rates of test-confirmed influenza compared with traditional egg-based vaccines.3
