CSL Limited, Australia’s leading biopharmaceutical company, announced today that preliminary data from the first study of its candidate pandemic H1N1 vaccine demonstrated a robust immune response in healthy adults after a single unadjuvanted15mcg dose.

The preliminary data, published today as an original article in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that over 95% of participants receiving the single 15mcg dose of the vaccine achieved antibody levels that correlate with the prevention of influenza infection.1

The study also shows that the vaccine has a tolerability profile consistent with seasonal influenza vaccines.
