Additional file 7: of Effect of homeostatic T-cell proliferation in the vaccine responsiveness against influenza in elderly people

Figure S2. Protocol. Subjects were vaccinated with one intradermal dose of the trivalent influenza vaccine Intanza (15 μg). Blood samples were collected pre-vaccination (from 29 to 0 days before the administration of the vaccine) and post-vaccination (from 12 to 33 days after vaccination). HAI titres were measured in the pre-vaccination and post-vaccination samples. T-cell immunophenotypes and soluble biomarkers were measured in the pre-vaccination samples. Deaths occurring within one year after vaccination were recorded. (TIF 123 kb)
