Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Investigate the safety of AERAS-404 in HIV-uninfected, HIV-unexposed, BCG-primed infants. [ Time Frame: Subjects will be followed for up to 1 year and 4 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events (SAE) will be collected on subjects throughout their participation in the study. Solicited adverse events are captured 28 days post each vaccination. Evaluation of the safety profile of AERAS-404 will be performed using data from all subjects who received at least one dose and has 7 days of safety data, and will be summarized by cohort and treatment group. The number (percentage) of subjects with any adverse event (including solicited, unsolicited, and serious adverse events) will be summarized by Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA) system organ class and Preferred Term. Additional summaries will present the number (percentage) of subjects with any adverse events by severity and by relationship to study vaccine; parameters evaluable by the Aeras 404 Pediatric Toxicity Table provided in the protocol, will be summarized by severity corresponding to Toxicity Grade, as appropriate.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Investigate the safety of a 3-dose AERAS-404 regimen in HIV-uninfected, HIV-unexposed, BCG-primed infants [ Time Frame: Subjects will be followed for up to 1 year and 4 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The number and percentage of subjects who are enrolled into the three-dose regimen (Cohorts 4-6) with solicited and unsolicited AEs (including serious adverse events [SAEs], local and systemic reactions, and clinical laboratory values or vital sign values recorded as newly abnormal following study vaccination) recorded post-vaccination will be summarized to address the secondary safety objective of the study. Subjects in Cohorts 4 and 5 will be followed for : 1 year and 3 months, Cohort 6: 1 year 4 months and Solicited adverse events are captured 28 days post each vaccination.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the immunogenicity of a 3-dose AERAS-404 regimen in HIV-uninfected, HIV-unexposed, BCG-primed infants. [ Time Frame: Subjects will be followed for up to 1 year and 4 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    T-cell response, as measured by Intracellular Cytokine Staining (ICS) following stimulation with peptide pools spanning the vaccine antigens, will be used to assess immunogenicity.

  • Select an appropriate dose regimen for AERAS-404 in HIV-uninfected, HIV-unexposed, BCG-primed infants. [ Time Frame: After all subjects in Cohorts 4 and 5 have completed Study Day 126, the safety and immunogenicity data from these Cohorts will be evaluated. The data will inform the decision on the study vaccine dose for Cohort 6. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety and immunogenicity analyses will be reviewed for the selection of the appropriate dose regimen

  • Explore interactions between AERAS-404 and EPI vaccines. [ Time Frame: Antibody concentration blood samples taken when subjects reach 12 months of age for all Cohorts and in addition, 28 post second study vaccine dose (Study Day 56) for subjects in Cohort 6 only. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Antibody concentration levels at 12 months of age for all Cohorts, and in addition at 28 days post second study vaccine dose (Study Day 56) for Cohort 6 will be presented. Summaries will include antibody titers to Tetanus toxoid vaccine (tetanus; given at 6, 10, 14 weeks of age), and Haemophilus influenza B conjugate vaccine (given at 6, 10, 14 weeks of age). Responses to other EPI vaccines may also be assessed.

  • Assess the immunogenicity of a 2-dose AERAS-404 regimen in HIV-uninfected, HIV-unexposed, BCG-primed infants. [ Time Frame: Subjects will have Immunology samples taken at multiple time points for up to 1 year and 4 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase I/II, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, safety, immunogenicity and dose-range finding study in HIV-uninfected, HIV-unexposed, BCG-primed infants. The study vaccine AERAS-404 or placebo will be administered without concomitant EPI vaccines (Cohorts 1 to 5, N = 159 subjects) and with concomitant EPI vaccines (Cohort 6, N = 70 subjects). Study vaccine or placebo will be administered as a single dose (injection) at Study Day 0 ( ≥168 to ≤ 196 days of age, Cohorts 1 and 2), a 2-dose schedule at Study Day 0 (≥ 168 to ≤ 189 days of age) and Study Day 28 (Cohorts 3A and 3B) or a 3-dose schedule at Study Day 0 (≥ 84 to ≤ 98 days of age), Study Day 42 and Study Day 98 (Cohorts 4 and 5). Subjects in Cohort 6 will receive the study vaccine or placebo at Study Day 0 (≥ 64 to ≤ 83 days of age), Study Day 28 (≥ 91 to ≤ 105 days of age), and Study Day 210 (≥ 273 to ≤ 287 days of age). A cohort will enroll once safety in the previous cohort has been established.
