This is single site, randomized, blinded comparison of the immunogenicity, of Imovax (RVi) and Rabavert (RVa) rabies vaccines when subjects are administered rabies immune globulin (RIG) or SYN023. Subjects will be randomized into one of four dose groups: RVi + SYN023, RVi+RIG, RVa+SYN023 and RVa+RIG. The initial dose of RVi and RVa will be co-administered with either RIG or SYN023). Rabies virus neutralizing activity (RVNA) and blood levels of SYN023 will be measured for the remainder of the trial while the rest of the five RVi and RVa doses are given. The study will last 112 days. SYN023 concentrations and anti-SYN023 antibodies will also be measured.
Administered immunoglobulins directed against vaccine antigens have the potential to inhibit the immune response to a vaccine. Both vaccination and immune globulin are used together in the post exposure prophylaxis of rabies virus infection. SYN023 (a mixture of two monoclonal antibodies CTB011 and CTB012) may be used instead of human rabies immune globulin. Since there is a risk of antagonism of vaccine induced immunity by SYN023, as there is with rabies immune globulin, it is necessary to study possible interactions of these two agents that might be used concurrently. This is single site, randomized, blinded comparison of the immunogenicity, of Imovax (RVi) and Rabavert (RVa) rabies vaccines when administered concurrently with rabies immune globulin (RIG) or SYN023. Subjects will be randomized into one of four dose groups: RVi + SYN023, RVi + RIG, RVa+SYN023 and RVa + RIG. The initial dose of RVi and RVa will be co-administered with either RIG or SYN023). The remaining 4 doses of RVi and RVa will be administered intramuscularly as specified in the product labeling. Serum rabies virus neutralizing activity (RVNA) and serum concentrations of the components of of SYN023 will be measured for the remainder of the trial while the rest of the five RVi and RVa doses are given. Adverse events will be collected for the duration of the trial. The study will last 112 days. Anti-SYN023 antibodies will also be measured.

RATIONALE: Antibodies, such as human immune globulin, can block the growth of abnormal cells in different ways. Some block the ability of abnormal cells to grow and spread. Others find abn...
The purpose of the study is to determine the feasibility of infusing a full 4-week dose of Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human), 10% in a single subcutaneous site and the amount of recombin...
This study will evaluate visual improvement in patients treated with Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human), 10% Caprylate/Chromatography Purified (IGIV-C) or placebo who have Age-Related Mac...
In the absence of accurate data on trends and the burden of human rabies infection in developing countries, animal bite injuries provide useful information to bridge that gap. Rabies is one of the mos...
Recent studies demonstrate that rabies post-exposure prophylaxis (RPEP) in international travelers is suboptimal, with only 5-20% of travelers receiving rabies immune globulin (RIG) in the country of ...
Coordinated surveillance, vaccination and public information efforts have brought the Chinese rabies epizootic under control, but significant numbers of fatalities are still reported annually with som...
In Côte d'Ivoire, rabies is endemic and remains largely uncontrolled. The numbers of human exposures and rabies cases are unknown and are probably much higher than reported. Data on human rabies case...
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent and treat RABIES. The inactivated virus vaccine is used for preexposure immunization to persons at high risk of exposure, and in conjunction with rabies immunoglobulin, for postexposure prophylaxis.
A genus of the family RHABDOVIRIDAE that includes RABIES VIRUS and other rabies-like viruses.
Mice homozygous for the mutant autosomal recessive gene "scid" which is located on the centromeric end of chromosome 16. These mice lack mature, functional lymphocytes and are thus highly susceptible to lethal opportunistic infections if not chronically treated with antibiotics. The lack of B- and T-cell immunity resembles severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) syndrome in human infants. SCID mice are useful as animal models since they are receptive to implantation of a human immune system producing SCID-human (SCID-hu) hematochimeric mice.
The complete genetic complement contained in the DNA of a set of CHROMOSOMES in a HUMAN. The length of the human genome is about 3 billion base pairs.
A specific pair of human chromosomes in group A (CHROMOSOMES, HUMAN, 1-3) of the human chromosome classification.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
A vaccine is any preparation intended to produce immunity to a disease by stimulating the production of antibodies. It creates immunity but does not cause the disease. There are several differnt types of vaccine avalable; Killed microorganisms; which s...
