Safety and Efficacy Study of a Vaccine Against Enterotoxigenic Escherichia Coli (ETEC) to Prevent Moderate to Severe Diarrhea

2014-08-27 03:16:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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).

Description

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
