SLU researchers enroll volunteers for flu vaccine study

ST. LOUIS – Clinical researchers at Saint Louis University are recruiting volunteers to participate in a ongoing flu vaccine study.

There are already approved flu vaccines and treatments, but current vaccines are about 50% effective. The aim is to discover and produce a more effective vaccine.

The study, now in its third phase, is taking place at 200 sites across the country, including SLU.

The university’s Center for Vaccine Development will study whether the vaccine stimulates the production of antibodies in response to influenza.

The researchers are looking for about 100 healthy adults over the age of 65 who have not had a flu shot in the past six months. Each volunteer is asked to make three clinical visits.

Pfizer, which developed the vaccine being studied, is funding the research. The study started in mid-September 2022 and is expected to be completed in August 2023.
