Safety Study of an Influenza Vaccine Against a Potential Pandemic Strain of Flu

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
PowderMed Identifier:
First received: June 30, 2006
Last updated: January 25, 2007
Last verified: January 2007
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how well the vaccine is tolerated at sites where administrations are given, any effects it may have on subjects' wellbeing and whether it can produce antibody responses in the body that may protect against the subjects catching a pandemic strain of flu

Condition Intervention Phase
Influenza (Pandemic) Biological: pPML7789 with and without pPJV2012 administered by PMED Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Randomised Double Blind Dose-Ranging Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Immunogenicity of a Monovalent H5 DNA Influenza Vaccine (A Vietnam/1194/2004) Administered by Particle Mediated Epidermal Delivery (PMED) to Healthy Adults

Further study details as provided by PowderMed:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety, tolerability and local reactogenicity-AEs and laboratory parameters.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity of the vaccine

Estimated Enrollment: 75
Study Start Date: August 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2007
Detailed Description:
Pandemic influenza occurs when a strain of influenza to which the human population has not been exposed develops the ability to infect man and spread from person to person. Some pandemics can have very severe health impacts and be widespread. This study will evaluate PowderMed's Particle Mediated Epidermal Delivery (PMED) DNA vaccine for pandemic influenza as a potential alternative to other vaccine technologies. This study represents the first study with this vaccine and will provisionally assess its safety and immunogenicity (ability to generate an immune response) at four different dose combinations. The vaccine will be given as a prime-boost regimen with vaccination on Days 0 and 28
