Egg-Free Flu Vaccine Beats Traditional Vaccine, Finds Study

Protein Sciences announced that Flublok Quadrivalent was better at preventing influenza than the traditional influenza vaccine in a recent study.

The study enrolled 9,000 patients aged ≥50 years and randomized half to Flublok Quadrivalent influenza vaccine and the other half to quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine produced in eggs. Study data showed Flublok protected 33% more patients than the egg-derived vaccine. Flublok produced significantly higher immune responses to the A strains of influenza (especially H3N2) in the Flublok Quadrivalent study.
