A Double-Dose Safety Study of An Influenza Vaccine (Multimeric-001) Injected to Elderly Volunteers

2014-07-24 14:10:58 | BioPortfolio


This is a phase I/II, randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled escalating double-dose, safety and priming potential study of an intramuscular Influenza vaccine (Multimeric-001) injected to elderly volunteers.


This is a Phase I/II single-center, randomized, placebo-controlled, single-blind, dose-escalation, double-dose administration study comprising two dosing cohorts (Cohort 1: 250 mcg per injection and Cohort 2: 500 mcg per injection) with 30 subjects in each cohort. In each cohort, eligible subjects will be randomized to receive one of the following administrations (as two single IM injections with an interval of 21 days between each injection).

All participants will be immunized with a conventional trivalent vaccine on day 42.

There will be a minimum of 10 days interval between last dosing of the first injection to the last subject of the 250 μg cohort (Cohort 1) and first dosing of the first subject injection with 500 µg cohort (Cohort 2).

For each subject, the second injection will take place 21+2 days after his/her first injection, provided they are deemed fit to be dosed by a study physician.

DSMB must review the safety data obtained from cohorts 1 and 2 before approving their second injection and before dose escalation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A formulation for presenting an antigen to induce specific immunologic responses. It consists of an assembly of antigens in multimeric form. The assembly is attached to a matrix with a built-in adjuvant, saponin. ISCOMs induce strong serum antibody responses, and are used as highly immunogenic forms of subunit vaccines.

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.

Single chains of amino acids that are the units of multimeric PROTEINS. Multimeric proteins can be composed of identical or non-identical subunits. One or more monomeric subunits may compose a protomer which itself is a subunit structure of a larger assembly.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
