This study involves the use of investigational vaccines. A vaccine is a medicine that causes the body to make antibodies. Antibodies help destroy foreign substances that enter the body. The purpose of this study is to find the right dose of a new vaccine that is safe and produces a good immune response (how well your body recognizes and defends itself against harmful foreign substances). There are two Staphylococcus aureus toxoids (components or antigens) under investigation in this study; one of them is a protein known as rAT and the other is a protein known as rLukS-PV. They are being developed to see if they are effective at preventing infections caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus.
Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of skin and soft tissue infections. Antibiotic resistance, such as seen with new community-acquired methicillin-resistant strains, presents a major challenge in treating and preventing these infections. Therefore, a preventative vaccine is considered a potentially better approach.
This study assesses the safety and immunogenicity of monovalent and bivalent S. aureus vaccine components. Healthy adult subjects will be randomized to receive 1 dose of monovalent or bivalent toxoid vaccine, or placebo in a dose escalation schedule.
Antigen-specific antibody will be measured by ELISA in sera collected for three months after injection. Safety data will be collected as 7 day reactogenicity diaries after each injection, adverse events and Staphylococcus aureus and skin and soft tissue infections will be collected through Day 84, and serious adverse events and chronic illnesses will be collected for the full 6 month study period.
To evaluate the possible utility of booster doses, the cohort receiving the highest dose of bivalent antigen will have a 2nd dose administered at Day 84, with a new 7-day reactogenicity diary and sera collected after the 2nd dose. All subjects will be followed up with a 6 month phone call after vaccination or booster.
The total subject observation period will be for 24 weeks from Day 0, plus 12 additional weeks for the cohorts that receive a 2nd dose. With a recruitment period of 4 months, the study duration is expected to be approximately 13 months.

Positively charged atoms, radicals or group of atoms with a valence of plus 1, which travel to the cathode or negative pole during electrolysis.
Ion channels that are regulated by cyclic GMP or cyclic AMP binding and contain six transmembrane segments and an ion conducting pore that passes monovalent cations. They are expressed in OLFACTORY NERVE cilia and in PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS and some PLANTS. They are blocked by DILTIAZEM.
A class of ionotropic glutamate receptors characterized by affinity for N-methyl-D-aspartate. NMDA receptors have an allosteric binding site for glycine which must be occupied for the channel to open efficiently and a site within the channel itself to which magnesium ions bind in a voltage-dependent manner. The positive voltage dependence of channel conductance and the high permeability of the conducting channel to calcium ions (as well as to monovalent cations) are important in excitotoxicity and neuronal plasticity.
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
