Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immune response assessed by the proportion of Immunoglobulin A (IgA) anti-Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) Antibody-Secreting Cells (ASC) responders.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 1) Immune Response:
  2. -Proportion of volunteers who have a B subunit antibody response
  3. -Proportion of volunteers who have a LPS response
  4. 2) SC599 Shedding
  5. -Proportion of volunteers who will excrete the vaccine strain and by the duration of the SC5999 shedding, defined as the time (days) between the first an last stool that were positive for SC599.
  6. 3) Safety Assessment
  7. -The safety will be evaluated by the proportions of clinical and biological adverse events. Illness after vaccination will be defined as either diarrhoea or fever.

  • Individuals who are found to have HLA-B27 tissue type at the time of initial screening
  • Individuals with a known or suspected history of gastrointestinal disease or abnormality
  • Concomitant therapy with antibiotics, iron, zinc, H2-receptor antagonists or proton pump inhibitors
  • Individuals who have received any vaccine against Shigella or had proven or suspected shigellosis (bloody diarrhoea with fever) within 6 months prior to study entry
  • Individuals with a significant level of immunity against Shigella detected at the screening visit (defined as serum ELISA anti-LPS IgG antibody titre greater than 3 S.D. above the mean background activity of a bank of healthy human sera)

  • A positive Shigella stool culture at the screening visit
  • Individuals with a known impairment of immune function or those receiving immunosuppressive therapy (including systemic corticosteroids). Inhaled or topical steroid preparation are not a non-inclusion criterion
  • Individuals with acute infections (including fever > 37.5°C oral temperature)at the time of immunisation or any chronic disease
  • Women capable of becoming pregnant who do not agree to have pregnancy testing before immunisation, or who do not agree to take effective contraception during the study period
  • Breastfeeding women
  • Individuals with a current problem with substance abuse or with a history of substance abuse which in the opinion of the investigator, might interfere with participation in the study
  • Individuals with any condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, might interfere with the evaluation with the study objectives
