The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a dengue vaccine administered subcutaneously in healthy adults and children. In addition the antibody response to the four dengue virus serotypes will be evaluated.

Condition Intervention Phase
Biological: DENVax
Biological: Phosphate buffered saline
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Age Descending and Expansion Phase 2 Study to Investigate the Safety and Immunogenicity of a Tetravalent Chimeric Dengue Vaccine in Healthy Volunteers Between the Ages of 1.5 - 45 Years

Further study details as provided by Takeda:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Local Injection site reactions to a dengue vaccine administered subcutaneously [ Time Frame: 30 days post dose ]
    Local injection site reactions that measure erythema (rash), edema, pain and itching will be evaluated. Active vaccine will be compared to placebo.

  • Systemic reactions to a dengue vaccine administered subcutaneously [ Time Frame: up to Day 120 ]
    Systemic reactions, including fever and rash, will be evaluated in subjects receiving dengue vaccine and compared to subjects receiving placebo.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Neutralizing Antibody titers of a dengue vaccine against four serotypes of dengue virus [ Time Frame: 30 days post dose 2 ]
    Neutralizing antibody titers (at Day 120) will be compared to baseline (day 0) titers.
