Brief Summary:
A phase I prospective, randomized study in healthy adult subjects at a single center. Adult subjects age 18 to 47 years and meeting all enrollment criteria will choose to participate as subjects who receive inactivated vaccine followed by a live vaccine boost at 4 weeks (Group 1), 12 weeks (Group 2), or 24 weeks (Group 3), or to be in an observational group (Group 4) which will not be scheduled for a booster dose but may serve as a roll-over group for subjects who withdraw prior to the second vaccination but agree to remain in follow-up. A fifth group will receive two intramuscular doses of adjuvanted H7N9 pIIV separated by four weeks. The primary objectives of this study are to (1) assess the safety of H7N9 pLAIV administered to individuals who have previously received MF59-adjuvanted or unadjuvanted H7N9 pIIV, (2) evaluate the ability of a single dose of unadjuvanted H7N9 pIIV to prime for enhanced immunogenicity (booster response) to subsequent administration of antigenically-matched H7N9 pLAIV vaccine, and to (3) evaluate the ability of a single dose of MF59-adjuvanted H7N9 pIIV to prime for enhanced immunogenicity (booster response) to subsequent administration of antigenically-matched H7N9 pLAIV vaccine.

Detailed Description:
The study will be conducted as a Phase I prospective, randomized study in healthy adult subjects at a single center. Adult subjects age 18 to 47 years and meeting all enrollment criteria will choose to participate as subjects who receive unadjuvanted or adjuvanted H7H9 pIIV vaccine followed by a live vaccine boost at 4 weeks (Group 1, n=24), 12 weeks (Group 2, n=24), or 24 weeks (Group 3, n=24), or to be in an observational group (Group 4, n=16) which will not be scheduled for a booster dose but may serve as a roll-over group for subjects who withdraw prior to the second vaccination but agree to remain in follow-up. Within each group, subjects will be randomized at a 1:1 ratio to receive a single dose of either unadjuvanted H7N9 pIIV at 15 mcg (Subgroup A), or the same vaccine adjuvanted with the oil-in-water emulsion, MF59, (Subgroup B) delivered intramuscularly. Finally, a fifth group (Group 5, n=12) will receive two intramuscular doses of adjuvanted H7N9 pIIV separated by four weeks. The total duration of study participation for all subjects will be approximately 13 months. Recruitment, enrollment and administration of study product will be suspended when one of the following occurs in the clinical or research laboratory at the clinical site: at least two respiratory cultures or PCR assays are determined to be positive for influenza or at least 10% diagnostic tests (rapid tests, respiratory cultures or PCR assays) performed for influenza as positive during two consecutive weeks in the clinical or research laboratory at the clinical site. Recruitment, enrollment and administration of study product may be resumed after 2 weeks without a signal that influenza is still circulating in the community, as defined by the same measures that indicate the start of influenza season (i.e., less than 2 respiratory cultures or PCR assays are determined to positive for influenza or less than 10% of diagnostic tests performed or influenza with positive results). The primary objectives of this study are to (1) assess the safety of H7N9 pLAIV administered to individuals who have previously received MF59-adjuvanted or unadjuvanted H7N9 pIIV, (2) evaluate the ability of a single dose of unadjuvanted H7N9 pIIV to prime for enhanced immunogenicity (booster response) to subsequent administration of antigenically-matched H7N9 pLAIV vaccine, and to (3) evaluate the ability of a single dose of MF59-adjuvanted H7N9 pIIV to prime for enhanced immunogenicity (booster response) to subsequent administration of antigenically-matched H7N9 pLAIV vaccine. The secondary objectives of this study are to (1) assess the safety of priming with MF59-adjuvanted H7N9 pIIV or unadjuvanted H7N9 pIIV, (2) assess the immune response in subjects vaccinated with a single dose of MF59-adjuvanted H7N9 pIIV or a single dose of unadjuvanted H7N9 pIIV, and to (3) compare the booster effect seen after intervals of 4 weeks, 12 weeks, or 24 weeks within each priming group.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 47 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  3. Are males or non-pregnant, non-breastfeeding females, 18 to 47 years old, inclusive.
  4. Are in good health, as determined by medical history, and targeted physical examination to ensure any existing medical diagnoses or conditions (except those exclusionary) are stable* **.

    *Stable chronic medical condition - no change in prescription medication, dose, or frequency of medication in the last 3 months (defined as 90 days) and health outcomes of the specific disease are considered to be within acceptable limits in the last 6 months (defined as 180 days). Any change that is due to change of health care provider, insurance company etc., or that is done for financial reasons, as long as in the same class of medication, will not be considered a violation of this inclusion criterion. Any change in prescription medication due to improvement of a disease outcome, as determined by the site principal investigator or appropriate sub-investigator, will not be considered a violation of this inclusion criterion.

    **Subjects may be on chronic or as needed (prn) medications if, in the opinion of the site principal investigator or appropriate sub-investigator, they pose no additional risk to subject safety or assessment of reactogenicity and immunogenicity. Note: Topical, nasal, and inhaled medications (with the exception of steroids as outlined in the Subject Exclusion Criteria), vitamins, and contraceptives are permitted.

  5. Oral temperature is less than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Pulse is 55 to 100 bpm, inclusive.
  7. Systolic blood pressure is 90 to 140 mmHg, inclusive.
  8. Diastolic blood pressure is 55 to 90 mmHg, inclusive.
  9. Women of childbearing potential* in sexual relationships with men must use an acceptable method of contraception** from 30 days prior to pIIV administration until 90 days after last study vaccination.

    *Not sterilized via tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy and still menstruating or < 1 year of the last menses if menopausal).

    **Includes, but is not limited to, abstinence from intercourse with a male partner, monogamous relationship with a vasectomized partner, male condoms with the use of applied spermicide, intrauterine devices, and licensed hormonal methods, with use of a highly effective method of contraception for a minimum of 30 days prior to study product exposure and agree to practice highly effective contraception for the duration of study product exposure, including 3 months (defined as 90 days) after the last study vaccination. A highly effective method of contraception is defined as one which results in a low failure rate (i.e., less than 1% per year) when used consistently and correctly.
