IM doses of MEDI-524 administered at 3 mg/kg or 15 mg/kg at 30 day intervals

Detailed Description:
This study is designed to describe the safety, tolerability, immunogenicity, and pharmacokinetics of escalating, repeated IM injections (the intended route of administration for immunoprophylaxis) of MEDI-524, initially in children £6 months old with a history of prematurity (³32 to £35 weeks gestation, without BPD), one of the target populations of infants at high risk for serious RSV disease.

Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Months to 24 Months   (Child)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All male or female children must have met all the following criteria:
  • [Groups 1, 2, and 3] The child must have been born at ³32 to £35 weeks gestation and have been £6 months of age at the time of entry into the study (child must have been entered on or before their 6-month birthday) or [Group 3 only] The child must have been £24 months of age at the time of entry into the study (child must have been entered on or before their 24-month birthday) and diagnosed with BPD, with stable or decreasing doses of diuretics, steroids, or bronchodilators within the previous 6 months
  • The child must have been in general good health at the time of entry
  • The child's parent or legal guardian must have provided written informed consent; and
  • The child must have been able to complete the follow-up visits through 90 days following last injection of MEDI-524
  • Parent/legal guardian of patient must have had available telephone access

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Children must have had none of the following:
  • Hospitalization at the time of study entry (unless discharge was expected within 3 days after entry into the study)
  • [All children in Groups 1 and 2; only children £6 months of age in Group 3] Birth hospitalization >6 weeks duration or [Only children >6 months of age in Group 3] Birth hospitalization >12 weeks duration
  • Been receiving chronic oxygen therapy or mechanical ventilation at the time of study entry (including CPAP)
  • [Groups 1 and 2 only] Diagnosis of BPD, defined as history of prematurity and associated chronic lung disease with oxygen requirement for >28 days
  • Congenital heart disease (CHD) (Children with medically or surgically corrected [closed] patent ductus arteriosus and no other CHD may be enrolled)
  • Evidence of infection with hepatitis A, B, or C virus
  • Known renal impairment, hepatic dysfunction, chronic seizure disorder, or immunodeficiency or HIV infection
  • Mother with known HIV infection
  • Any of the following laboratory findings in blood obtained within 7 days prior to study entry: BUN or creatinine >1.5´ the upper limit of normal for age; AST (SGOT) or ALT (SGPT) >1.5´ the upper limit of normal for age; hemoglobin <9.5 gm/dL; white blood cell count <4,000 cells/mm3; platelet count <120,000 cells/mm3
  • Acute illness or progressive clinical disorder
  • Active infection, including acute RSV infection
  • Previous reaction to IGIV, blood products, or other foreign proteins
