Brief Summary:

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common cause of illness in infants and children around the world. This study will evaluate the safety and immune response to an RSV vaccine in RSV-seronegative infants and children.

This study is a companion study to CIR 291.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infections Biological: RSV LID ΔM2-2 Vaccine Biological: Placebo Vaccine Phase 1

Detailed Description:

RSV is the most common viral cause of serious acute lower respiratory illness (LRI) in infants and children under 5 years of age in the world. RSV illness can range from mild upper respiratory tract illness (URI) to severe LRI, including bronchiolitis and pneumonia. Severe RSV disease in infancy may also predispose children to develop reactive airway disease during childhood. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of an RSV vaccine (RSV LID ΔM2-2) in RSV-seronegative infants and children at least 6 months and through 24 months of age.

To determine study eligibility, the screening process will include a blood collection. Screening may begin after the RSV season (i.e., as of April 1) and enrollment must precede the RSV season (no later than October 14). At study entry, eligible participants will be randomly assigned to receive one dose of either the RSV vaccine or placebo, which will be delivered as nose drops. Participants will also undergo a review of medical history, clinical assessment, and a nasal wash. They will then receive their assigned vaccine and will remain under observation for monitoring for 30 minutes after receiving the vaccine. Additional study visits will occur at Days 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, 14, 17, 19, 21, 28, and 56. These visits will include clinical assessments and nasal washes; on Day 56, a blood collection will also occur. On days where no study visit is scheduled (through Day 29), participants' parents or guardians will report participants' temperatures and signs of illness to researchers by e-mail or phone.

In October following vaccination, participants may have a pre-RSV season blood collection visit. During RSV season, November through March following vaccination, researchers will contact participants' parents or guardians on a weekly basis for follow-up monitoring. During this time frame, participants seen by a medical provider for fever, respiratory illness, or otitis media will have a study visit, which will include a nasal wash and clinical assessment. In April following vaccination, participants will undergo a final blood collection.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: RSV LID ΔM2-2 Vaccine
Participants will receive one dose of the RSV LID ΔM2-2 vaccine at study entry, delivered as nose drops.
Biological: RSV LID ΔM2-2 Vaccine
10^5.0 plaque forming units (PFU); 0.5 mL dose delivered as nose drops (approximately 0.25 mL per nostril)

Placebo Comparator: Placebo Vaccine
Participants will receive one dose of placebo at study entry, delivered as nose drops.
Biological: Placebo Vaccine
0.5 mL dose delivered as nose drops (approximately 0.25 mL per nostril)




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frequency of vaccine-related solicited adverse events (AEs) that occur during the acute monitoring phase of the study, the first 28 days after inoculation [ Time Frame: Measured through Day 28 ]
  2. Severity of vaccine-related solicited AEs that occur during the acute monitoring phase of the study, the first 28 days after inoculation [ Time Frame: Measured through Day 28 ]
  3. Frequency of vaccine-related lower respiratory illness [ Time Frame: Measured through Day 56 ]
  4. Proportion of participants that develop 4-fold or greater rises in RSV-neutralizing antibody titer following vaccination [ Time Frame: Measured through Day 56 ]
    Antibody responses to the RSV F glycoprotein will also be assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

  • Participant has received routine immunizations appropriate for age. Prior vaccines were administered at least:

    • 2 weeks prior to enrollment for inactivated and subunit vaccines and rotavirus vaccine, and
    • 4 weeks prior to enrollment for all other live vaccines.
  • Participant is expected to be available for the duration of the study
  • If born to an HIV-infected woman, participant must be non-breastfeeding with documentation of two negative HIV nucleic acid (RNA or DNA) tests with both collected when at least 1 month of age and at least one collected when at least 4 months of age, and no positive HIV nucleic acid (RNA or DNA) test; or two negative HIV antibody tests, both collected at less than or equal to 6 months of age
