  Purpose

To determine the safety and immunogenicity of rgp120/HIV-1SF2 combined with MF59 adjuvant emulsion versus MF59 alone in HIV-negative volunteers.

One approach to improve the immunogenicity of an HIV-1 subunit protein vaccine is to combine the immunogen with an adjuvant.

Enrollment: 30
Study Completion Date: January 1998
Detailed Description:

One approach to improve the immunogenicity of an HIV-1 subunit protein vaccine is to combine the immunogen with an adjuvant.

Healthy volunteers receive intramuscular injections of rgp120/HIV-1SF2 with MF59 adjuvant emulsion or MF59 alone at months 0, 1, 6, 9, 10 and 12 (was months 0, 1, 6 and 10, amended 12/19/96).

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

Volunteers must have:

  • Normal history and physical exam.
  • HIV negativity.
  • Absolute CD4 count >= 400 cells/mm3.
  • Normal urine dipstick with esterase and nitrite.
  • Lower risk sexual behavior.

Exclusion Criteria

Co-existing Condition:

Subjects with the following symptoms or conditions are excluded:

  • Positive hepatitis B surface antigen.
  • Medical or psychiatric condition (such as recent suicidal ideation or present psychosis) that precludes compliance.
  • Active syphilis. NOTE: Subjects with serology documented to be a false positive or due to a remote (> 6 months) treated infection are eligible.
  • Active tuberculosis. NOTE: Subjects with a positive PPD and a normal chest x-ray showing no evidence of TB and not requiring isoniazid therapy are eligible.

Subjects with the following prior conditions are excluded:

  • History of immunodeficiency, chronic illness, autoimmune disease, or use of immunosuppressive medications.
  • History of anaphylaxis or other serious adverse reactions to vaccines.
  • History of serious allergic reaction to any substance, requiring hospitalization or emergent medical care (e.g., Stevens-Johnson syndrome, bronchospasm, or hypotension).
  • Prior psychiatric condition (such as history of suicide attempts or past psychosis) that precludes compliance.
  • History of cancer unless there has been surgical excision that is considered to have achieved cure.

Prior Medication:

Excluded:

  • Live attenuated vaccines within 60 days prior to study entry. NOTE: Medically indicated killed or subunit vaccines (e.g., influenza, pneumococcal) do not exclude if administered at least 2 weeks from HIV immunizations.
  • Experimental agents within 30 days prior to study entry.
  • Prior HIV vaccines.

Prior Treatment:

Excluded:

  • Blood products or immunoglobulin within the past 6 months.

Identifiable high-risk behavior for HIV infection, including:

  • History of injection drug use within past 12 months.
  • Higher risk sexual behavior.
