This study will provide preliminary safety and comparative immunogenicity data for the E.coli derived rPA vaccine administered by intramuscular (IM) injection at Day 0 and Month 1.Doses will range from 5 μg to 100 μg rPA, and at each dose-level, rPA will either be combined with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) or adsorbed to Alhydrogel.
This is a safety study with an open-label part (2 groups), followed by a dose-ranging part evaluating safety and immunogenicity using a double-blind, sequential-group design with randomization and placebo-control within each of the 6 groups. Volunteers in each dose group will receive two IM injections at Day 0 and Month 1
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Prevention

This is a dose ranging study comparing different vaccine schedules of rPA vaccine, for Anthrax, to the licensed dose of AVA, another Anthrax vaccine. Safety and the capability to induce an...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and immunogenicity of an anthrax vaccine. The vaccine schedule and dose will also be assessed.
The purpose of this phase 1 study is to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of rPA102 vaccine, using anthrax vaccine adsorbed (AVA) as a comparator.
This is a dose ranging study comparing different vaccine schedules of rPA vaccine for anthrax. Safety and the capability to induce an immune response will be evaluated.
The trial investigates Px563L and RPA563, two formulations of a novel anthrax vaccine.
Inhalational anthrax is a rare disease and Bacillus anthracis is a likely pathogen to be used in a biological attack. The lack of clinical experience with anthrax has led experts to develop treatment ...
Unusual human behavior leads to the emergence of new forms of infectious diseases and new routes of infection. In recent years, a new form of anthrax, called injectional anthrax, emerged and was relat...
Anthrax is hyper-endemic in West Africa. Despite the effectiveness of livestock vaccines in controlling anthrax, underreporting, logistics, and limited resources makes implementing vaccination campaig...
Anthrax is endemic in the country of Georgia. The most common cutaneous anthrax form accounts for 95% of anthrax cases and often is self-resolving. Humans are infected from processing contaminated ani...
The spores of the soil-borne bacterium, Bacillus anthracis, which causes anthrax are highly resistant to adverse environmental conditions. Under ideal conditions, anthrax spores can survive for many y...
An acute infection caused by the spore-forming bacteria BACILLUS ANTHRACIS. It commonly affects hoofed animals such as sheep and goats. Infection in humans often involves the skin (cutaneous anthrax), the lungs (inhalation anthrax), or the gastrointestinal tract. Anthrax is not contagious and can be treated with antibiotics.
ANTHRAX outbreak that occurred in 1979 and was associated with a research facility in Sverdlovsk, in the Ural mountain region of central RUSSIA. Most victims worked or lived in a narrow zone extending from the facility. The zone of anthrax-caused livestock mortality paralleled the northerly wind that prevailed shortly before the outbreak. It was concluded that an escape of ANTHRAX caused outbreak.
A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent ANTHRAX.
A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)
