Table 2 Non-inferiority outcomes of Haemagglutination Inhibition (HI) antibody geometric mean titres (GMT) ratio (ATP cohort for immunogenicity)

From: A randomized, controlled non-inferiority trial comparing A(H1N1)pmd09 vaccine antigen, with and without AS03 adjuvant system, co-administered or sequentially administered with an inactivated trivalent seasonal influenza vaccine

Ratio order Strain Adjusted GMTa ratio Non-inferiority criteria
TIV b co-administration Value [97.5% CI c ]  
Group D Day 42/Group F Day 42 A/California/7/2009 0.62 [0.48-0.81] If the lower bound of 95% CI for GMT ratio between Group D Day 42; Group F Day 42 was >0.5
Group C Day 42/Group E Day 42 A/California/7/2009 0.66 [0.51-0.85] If the lower bound of 95% CI for GMT ratio between Group C Day 42; Group E Day 42 was >0.5
Sequential administration Value [95% CI]  
Group B Day 63/Group F Day 42 A/California/7/2009 0.68 [0.54-0.86] If the lower bound of 95% CI for GMT ratio between Group B Day 63; Group F Day 42 was >0.5
(TIV prior to adjuvanted H1N1 vaccine)
Group A Day 63/Group E Day 42 A/California/7/2009 0.60 [0.48-0.76] If the lower bound of 95% CI for GMT ratio between Group A Day 63; Group E Day 42 was >0.5
(TIV prior to unadjuvanted H1N1 vaccine)
Group B Day 63/Group A Day 63 A/California/7/2009 2.69 [2.14-3.39] If the lower bound of 95% CI for GMT ratio between Group B Day 63; Group A Day 63 was >0.5; Superiority criteria: Lower bound >1.0
