History of Changes

Purpose

Section 1:

The purpose of the study is to obtain safety and immunogenicity data of different dose levels of a multivalent recombinant OspA Lyme Borreliosis (mv rOspA LB) Vaccine with and without adjuvant in seronegative healthy adults aged 18 to 70 years. The outcome shall provide the basis for dose/formulation selection for Section 2 of the study.

Section 2:

An additional purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of the optimal dose(s)/formulation of the mv rOspA LB Vaccine in a larger population of seronegative and seropositive healthy subjects aged 18 to 70 years.

Further study details as provided by Baxter Healthcare Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:

  • Antibody response to the vaccine [ Time Frame: 28 days after the third vaccination (= Day 85) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequency and severity of injection site and systemic reactions [ Time Frame: Within 7 days after each vaccination (i.e. Days 8, 36 and 64) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • Antibody response [ Time Frame: At baseline, 28 days after each vaccination (i.e. Days 29, 57 and 85), 180 and 270 days after the first vaccination (Day 181, Day 271) and 180 days after the booster vaccination (Day 361 or Day 451 - 546) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Fold increase in antibody titer compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 28 days after each vaccination, 180 and 270 days after the first vaccination and 180 days after the booster vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Seroconversion rate (at least 4-fold increase of each rOspA type-specific Immunoglobulin G (IgG) titer) as compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 28 days after each vaccination, 180 and 270 days after the first vaccination and 180 days after the booster vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequency and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: 28 days after each vaccination and during entire study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
