This is phase I, double blind, placebo-controlled safety and infectivity study of experimental human Norovirus genogroup GII.4 administered to healthy adults 18-49 years of age. Subjects susceptible to the human norovirus GII.4 challenge strain. The challenge study will be conducted in 2-3 cohorts of approximately 20 subjects each.Subjects will remain in the inpatient facility for at least four days following challenge and assessed daily for clinical and virologic evidence of norovirus infection.
This is phase I, double blind, placebo-controlled safety and infectivity study of experimental human Norovirus genogroup GII.4 administered to healthy adults 18-49 years of age. The unblinded pharmacist will assign treatments. Subjects will be admitted to an inpatient nursing unit, challenged with live GII.4 Norovirus strain by oral administration, remain in the unit for at least 4 days following challenge and then followed for post-challenge safety and efficacy with multiple clinical assessments and collection of blood and stool specimens.
Subjects susceptible to the human norovirus GII.4 challenge strain, CIN-1 (i.e. presence of a functional FUT-2 gene), regardless of ABO blood type, will be housed in the Cincinnati Center for Clinical Research (CCCR) inpatient facility and challenged orally with different doses of the virus. The challenge study will be conducted in 2-3 cohorts of approximately 20 subjects each, with the initial cohort receiving 103 RT-PCR units or placebo (9 "challenge" and 1 "placebo" per 10 subjects). Based on the illness rate of acute gastroenteritis (AGE) in the initial cohort, the second cohort will be enrolled to receive a challenge dose based on the results of the previous studies. Additional cohorts may be necessary. Illness is defined as infection accompanied by vomiting and/or diarrhea during the inpatient stay.Two to three additional subjects per cohort will serve as alternates in the event that any of the study subjects are unavailable or become ineligible at the time of the inpatient study.Subjects will remain in the inpatient facility for at least four days following challenge and assessed daily for clinical and virologic evidence of norovirus infection. Subjects will return to the investigational site for evaluation on Day 6 (+2 days) and about 15 (14-16 days) and 30 days (28-35 days) and 45 (40-45 days) post challenge.

A genus in the family CALICIVIRIDAE, associated with epidemic GASTROENTERITIS in humans. The type species, NORWALK VIRUS, contains multiple strains.
The type species in the genus NOROVIRUS, first isolated in 1968 from the stools of school children in Norwalk, Ohio, who were suffering from GASTROENTERITIS. The virions are non-enveloped spherical particles containing a single protein. Multiple strains are named after the places where outbreaks have occurred.
