Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability of different doses of JNJ-63871860 (ExPEC4V) in participants greater than or equal to (>=)18 years of age and to evaluate the dose-dependent immunogenicity of ExPEC as measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Biological: ExPEC4V (4 : 4 : 4 : 4) Biological: ExPEC4V (4 : 4 : 4 : 8) Biological: ExPEC4V (8 : 8 : 8 : 8) Biological: ExPEC4V (8 : 8 : 8 : 16) Biological: ExPEC4V (16 : 16 : 16 : 16) Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 2, double-blind (neither the researchers nor the participants know what treatment the participant is receiving), randomized (study medication assigned to participants by chance), placebo-controlled (an inactive substance; a pretend treatment [with no drug in it] that is compared in a clinical trial with a drug to test if the drug has a real effect), parallel group, multicenter (when more than one hospital work on a medical research study) study, with a single-blind, long-term follow-up to Year 3. The study will be split into 2 phases, a double-blind phase with screening (Day -12 to Day 1), Vaccination (Day 1) and Safety and Immunogenicity Follow-up (Day 1 up to Day 360), and a single-blind long-term follow-up phase thereafter until Year 3 for participants in placebo and two ExPEC4V dose groups selected based on the primary (Day 30) analysis. Participants will be stratified in 2 age groups (>=18 to less than [<] 50 years and >=50 years) and in each dosing group in each stratum randomized to a single vaccination with 1 of 5 doses of ExPEC4V or placebo. The duration of the double-blind phase (from randomization/vaccination) will be approximately 360 days for placebo participants and participants in the dose group selected based on the primary analysis, and approximately 180 days for the participants in the other groups. The duration of the single-blind long-term follow-up phase will be approximately 2 years after the double-blind phase for placebo participants and participants in the selected dose group. Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.

Experimental: ExPEC4V (4 : 4 : 4 : 4)
Participants will be stratified according to their age in 2 groups >=18 to <50 years and >=50 years. Part 1: In age group >= 18 to <50 years, participants will receive single vaccination of ExPEC4V dose (4 : 4 : 4 : 4) as an intramuscular (i.m) injection into deltoid muscle. The ExPEC4V doses contain polysaccharide antigen (in microgram [mcg]) from the ExPEC serotypes O1A, O2, O6A, and O25B. Participants in >=50 years group will be enrolled in stepwise,dose-escalating procedure. In step 1, lowest dose of ExPEC4V (4:4:4:4) or Placebo will be given, in step 2 either of 2 medium doses of ExPEC4V or placebo and in step 3, either of 2 highest doses of ExPEC4V or placebo. Participants will be enrolled into subsequent steps only if vaccination in previous steps is deemed safe based on review of safety data by the IDMC. Participants will be enrolled into Part 2 only if vaccination in Part 1 is deemed safe based on the review of safety data through Day 8 by the IDMC.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants with Solicited Local Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: up to Day 8 ]
    Solicited AEs are precisely defined events that participants are specifically asked about and which are noted by participants through the electronic Subject Diary. Solicited Local AEs: Participants will be instructed on how to note occurrences of pain/tenderness, erythema, and induration/swelling at the injection site daily for 8 days postvaccination (day of vaccination and the subsequent 7 days) in the electronic Subject Diary. Participants will be instructed on how to measure (using the ruler supplied) and record erythema and induration.

  2. Number of Participants with Solicited Systemic AEs [ Time Frame: up to Day 8 ]
    Solicited AEs are precisely defined events that participants are specifically asked about and which are noted by participants through the electronic Subject Diary. Solicited Systemic AEs: Participants will be instructed on how to note daily symptoms in the electronic Subject Diary for 8 days post vaccination (day of vaccination and the subsequent 7 days) of the following systemic events: fever, headache, fatigue, malaise, nausea, and myalgia.

  3. Number of Participants with Unsolicited AEs [ Time Frame: Up to Day 30 ]
  4. Number of Participants with Serious Adverse Events (SAE's) [ Time Frame: Until 360 days post vaccination ]
    An SAE is any adverse event that results in: death, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, requires inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, is life threatening experience, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect and may jeopardize participant and/or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed above.

  5. Dose-dependent Immunogenicity of ExPEC4V on Day 15 (ELISA) [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
    Dose-dependent immunogenicity will be measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) on day 15 in participants with >=18 years of age. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody levels elicited by the vaccine will be measured by ELISA.

  6. Long-Term Immunogenicity of ExPEC4V Dose Selected for Further Clinical Development (ELISA) [ Time Frame: Year 2 and 3 ]
    Evaluation of the immunogenicity of a single vaccination with the ExPEC4V dose selected for further clinical development based on the primary analysis, as measured by ELISA.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose-dependent Immunogenicity of ExPEC4V on Day 15 (Opsonophagocytic Killing [OPK] Assay) [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
    Dose-dependent immunogenicity will be measured by opsonophagocytic killing (OPK) assay on day 15 in participants with >=18 years of age. Specific functional antibacterial antibodies will be measured by OPK.

  2. Correlation Between ELISA (total antibody) and OPK (functional antibody) Serum Titers [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
  3. Dose-dependent Immunogenicity of ExPEC4V on Day 30 (ELISA) [ Time Frame: Day 30 ]
    Dose-dependent immunogenicity will be measured by ELISA on day 30 in participants with >=18 years of age. IgG antibody levels elicited by the vaccine will be measured by ELISA.

  4. Immunogenicity of ExPEC4V Dose Selected for Further Clinical Development (ELISA) [ Time Frame: Day 180 and 360 ]
    The immunogenicity of the ExPEC4V dose selected for further clinical development based on the interim analysis, as measured by ELISA will be evaluated. IgG antibody levels elicited by the vaccine will be measured by ELISA.

  5. Immunogenicity of ExPEC4V Dose Selected for Further Clinical Development (OPK) [ Time Frame: Days 30, 180, and 360 ]
    The immunogenicity of the ExPEC4V dose selected for further clinical development based on the interim analysis, as measured by OPK assay will be evaluated. Specific functional antibacterial antibodies will be measured by OPK.
