|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Rabies||Biological: RABIPUR® Biological: PIKA rabies vaccine||Phase 2|
A multi-center, open labelled, randomized study in healthy naïve adult subjects. Subjects were randomly assigned to groups A (60) and B (60). Group A as a control arm of the study, had received a commercially available rabies vaccine, RABIPUR®. Group B had received doses of the investigational PIKA rabies vaccine in an accelerated regimen.
Group A followed the vaccine regimen of (1-1-1-1),one injection on days 0, 3, 7 and 14 was administered respectively. Group B received the accelerated regimen (2-2-1), two injections on both days 0 and 3 were administered in different arms; and only one injection was administered on day 7.
Each vaccine dose comprise 1.0 ml of PIKA rabies vaccine for Group B and 1.0 ml of RABIPUR® for Group A after reconstitution. The route of administration is intramuscular injection, given in the deltoid region of the arm.

- Titer level of Rabies Virus Neutralizing Antibody (RVNA) from serum at accelerated regimen [ Time Frame: 42 days ]Evaluation of the accelerated regimen is studied to check if the levels of anti-rabies antibodies (serum RVNA titer) will be better than a classic course with control commercialized vaccine.
- Identification of any adverse events for all the treatment groups [ Time Frame: 42 days ]Assessment of safety based on the identification of any adverse events for all the treatment groups, Group A, Group B and Group C through to the end of the study at day 42.
- Number of subjects in Group B who has higher RVNA titre level on Day 7 when compared to classic course. [ Time Frame: Day 7 ]To analyze the titer level of RVNA from serum at day 7 after the first injection and with RVNA titer meeting the 0.5 IU(International units) /ml World Health Organization (WHO) requirement
