Dear Mr. Gollwitzer-
 
Our review of Novartis' Flucelvax Biologics License Application STN 125408 is ongoing. We have the following requests for additional information:
 
In your application, you refer to Study V58P14, an immunogenicity and safety study comparing Optaflu and Agrippal in adults and elderly with and without underlying medical conditions. You note that the study was prematurely terminated due to vaccine unavailability. Please provide the following information for Study V58P14:
 
1. Additional information for the reasons that Optaflu was unavailable for use in this study.
2. Line listings for serious adverse events.
3. Line listings for any adverse events consistent with an allergic reaction to either study vaccine.
 
Please submit the requested information as an amendment to STN 125408. We recommend that you restate each item and follow it with your explanation or clarification. Use of this format helps organize the relevant information and provides a self-contained document that facilitates future reference.
 
If you have any questions, please contact the Regulatory Project Manager, Drs Brenda Baldwin or Timothy Fritz, at 301-796-2640 or via e-mail.
 
Thank you.
