The worldwide HIV epidemic highlights the importance of developing an affordable, globally successful vaccine for HIV prevention. The VRC-HIVADV014-00-VP adenoviral vector vaccine used in this study was developed to stimulate strong virus-specific CD8 cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) responses thought to be crucial in an effective preventive HIV vaccine. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and immunogenicity of a VRC-HIVADV014-00-VP vaccine boost given to healthy, HIV uninfected individuals who participated in HVTN 052, which evaluated the VRC-HIVDNA009-00-VP DNA plasmid vaccine. In that study, participants received either 3 injections of vaccine, 2 injections of vaccine and 1 injection of placebo, or 3 injections of placebo over a 2-month period.
This study will last one year. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive vaccine boost or placebo by intramuscular injection. The injections will be given 6 to 9 months after each participant's first HVTN 052 study injection, preferably as close to 6 months after the first HVTN 052 injection as possible. After a screening visit, study visits will occur at enrollment (when the injection will be given), at Week 2, and at Months 1, 3, 6, and 12. Blood collection, physical exam, and medication assessment will occur at every study visit; urine collection will occur at selected visits.

The purpose of the study is to determine the safety of and immune response to a DNA HIV vaccine followed by an adenoviral vector HIV vaccine in HIV uninfected adults.
This study will test whether a vaccination schedule of experimental HIV vaccines is safe and whether it causes side effects in healthy adult volunteers. It will also compare the effects of...
The aim of the study was the evaluation of the frequency of infections and co-infections among patients hospitalized because of non-specific symptoms after a tick bite.
Identification of new HIV infections (HIV incidence) is critical for monitoring AIDS epidemic and assessing the effectiveness of intervention measures. However, current methods for distinguishing new ...
Hospitalizations for infections have been associated with subsequent decreased cognitive ability, but it is uncertain if childhood infections influence subsequent scholastic achievement (SA). We aimed...
WHO estimates that 131 million new cases of urogenital Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) infections occur globally every year. Most infections are asymptomatic. Untreated infection in women can lead to sev...
