This is a research study about an experimental (investigational) vaccine called ACE527. ACE527 is a vaccine that is being made to prevent disease from a germ called enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC). This germ causes diarrhea, largely in children living in developing countries and in travelers to those countries. One purpose of this study is to see if the vaccine is safe and develops an immune response. Another purpose is to see if it prevents people from getting sick when exposed to the ETEC germ. This ETEC germ is also experimental (investigational).
This is a single-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase II vaccination and challenge study designed to assess the protective efficacy of the ACE 527 vaccine, as well as collect expanded safety and immunogenicity data. The study will be carried out in two phases. In the initial vaccination phase, up to 72 subjects will be randomized 1:1 to receive either ACE527 or placebo on an outpatient basis. Vaccine and placebo preparations will be given orally. Following vaccination, subjects will be followed as out-patients for safety using diary card surveillance, for vaccine shedding by qualitative stool culture (i.e. presence or absence) and for the development of local and systemic antibody responses to the ACE527 vaccine strains. In the subsequent inpatient challenge phase, up to 56 vaccinated subjects will be admitted as inpatients and challenged with the ETEC strain, H10407. The challenge dose will be administered orally.After challenge, subjects will be monitored for diarrhea and other signs/symptoms of enteric illness by daily medical checks, vital sign determinations, grading and weighing of all stools. Monitoring for fecal shedding of the challenge ETEC strain H10407 will occur daily, after challenge, while in-patient. Local and systemic antibody responses to the challenge ETEC strain H10407 will also be assessed. All subjects will be treated with Abx.

Although placebo analgesia is a well-recognized phenomenon with important clinical implications, the possibility that placebo effects occur during sleep has received little attention. This experimenta...
Recent evidence indicates that placebo effects can occur even when patients know that they are taking a placebo, termed the open-label placebo effect.
Despite remarkable progress in the reduction of under-five mortality, childhood diarrhea is still the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in this highly susceptible and vulnerable population. In ...
This study investigated recent trends in antibiotic use and factors associated with antibiotic use among children with acute infectious diarrhea. We obtained records of outpatients aged under 18 years...
One in three clinical trial patients with major depressive disorder report symptomatic improvement with placebo. Strategies to mitigate the effect of placebo responses have focused on modifying study ...
Infection with any of the rotaviruses. Specific infections include human infantile diarrhea, neonatal calf diarrhea, and epidemic diarrhea of infant mice.
Acute disease of cattle caused by the bovine viral diarrhea viruses (DIARRHEA VIRUSES, BOVINE VIRAL). Often mouth ulcerations are the only sign but fever, diarrhea, drop in milk yield, and loss of appetite are also seen. Severity of clinical disease varies and is strain dependent. Outbreaks are characterized by low morbidity and high mortality.
DIARRHEA occurring in infants from newborn to 24-months old.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
Miscellaneous agents found useful in the symptomatic treatment of diarrhea. They have no effect on the agent(s) that cause diarrhea, but merely alleviate the condition.
A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one ...
