Brief Summary:

The present trial is a phase I first in human, double blind, parallel and placebo controlled trial of SSI's adjuvanted chlamydia vaccine CTH522: CTH522-CAF01 (CAF01 is an adjuvant system) and CTH522-Al(OH)3. The trial will be conducted at Imperial College Research site in the United Kingdom.

Subjects are randomly assigned to one of the following three treatment groups in a ratio of 3:3:1.

This trial consisted of 10 visits and 5 telephonic interviews

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CTH522-CAF01

CTH522-CAF01: CTH522 chlamydia antigen adjuvanted with CAF01 for IM administration (preferably the non-dominant arm)

CTH522 chlamydia antigen diluted with Tris buffer for IN administration

Biological: CTH522-CAF01
CTH522 chlamydia antigen adjuvanted with CAF01 for IM administration

Experimental: CTH522-Al(OH)3

CTH522-Al(OH)3: CTH522 chlamydia antigen adjuvanted with aluminium hydroxide, Al(OH)3 , for IM administration (preferably the non-dominant arm)

CTH522 chlamydia antigen diluted with Tris buffer for IN administration

Biological: CTH522-Al(OH)3
CTH522 chlamydia antigen adjuvanted with aluminium hydroxide, Al(OH)3 , for IM administration

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Saline for IM and In administrations
Biological: Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of adverse events/reactions and laboratory safety of adjuvanted chlamydia vaccine [ Time Frame: Through study completion (Day 0 to Day 168) ]
    Solicited local injection site reactions (recorded at any visit) after intramuscular (IM) administration (pain, erythema, tenderness, pruritus, warmth, stiffness and swelling) Solicited local reactions (recorded at any visit) after IN administration (discharge, including bleeding, congestion, discomfort, sneezing and cough) Solicited systemic reactions (recorded at any visit) after IM and IN administration (abnormally raised temperature, chills, myalgia, malaise, fatigue, rash, headache, nausea and vomiting, and clinically significant abnormal values among full blood count, liver function test and renal profile results)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Serum immunoglobulin G antibody responses after vaccination with CTH522 [ Time Frame: At Days 0, 28, 112, 126, 140, 154 and 168 ]
    Percentage of subjects achieving seroconversion for anti-CTH522 immunoglobulin G antibody at any time points after IM vaccination(s)

  6. Has BMI of 35 kg/m2 or greater
  7. Is currently participating in another clinical trial with an investigational or noninvestigational drug or device
  8. Has received, or plans to receive, an active immunisation within 14 days of the start of the trial or any of the immunisation visits in this trial
  9. Is currently receiving treatment with immunosuppressive agents e.g. oral, inhaled, nasal or injected corticosteroids. (Topical steroids are allowed, unless applied to the IM injection site.)
  10. Is using an intrauterine device
