Post-hoc analysis in which post-vaccination geometric mean titres (GMTs) were adjusted according to pre-vaccination titres and ratios of GMT (adjuvanted vaccine/intradermal vaccine) for the three virus strains on day 21 in the per protocol set assessed by haemagglutinin inhibition (HI) and single radial haemolysis (SRH) methods
