Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Novartis ( Novartis Vaccines )
  Purpose
The goals of the proposed study are to evaluate the safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of a GBS vaccine. Previous studies suggest that immune responses against GBS can protect humans from infection.

Condition Intervention Phase
Invasive Group B Streptococcus (GBS) Disease Biological: Monovalent GBS-CRM glycoconjugate vaccine Biological: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Phase I, Randomized, Single-blind, Controlled, Single Center Study to Evaluate the Safety and Immunogenicity of a Dose Range of a Glycoconjugate Antigen Vaccine of Group B Streptococcus in Healthy Women 18-40 Years of Age

Further study details as provided by Novartis ( Novartis Vaccines ):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of an intramuscular GBS conjugate vaccine. Safety will be assessed by measuring the incidence of local and systemic reactogenicity, adverse events and serious adverse events. [ Time Frame: 1 month ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To study the magnitude and durability of GBS-specific antibody responses over 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Enrollment: 65
Study Start Date: December 2007
Study Completion Date: May 2009
Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Biological: Monovalent GBS-CRM glycoconjugate vaccine
1 dose of GBS conjugate vaccine
Placebo Comparator: 2 Biological: Placebo
1 dose of placebo
