Brief Summary:

Background:

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a virus that infects the lungs and breathing passages. Healthy adults who are infected generally have mild cold symptoms for a week or two. But it can also be serious, especially for infants and older adults. It can be spread by direct or indirect contact with respiratory secretions. Researchers want to study a new vaccine to prevent RSV.

Objective:

To see if a vaccine for RSV is safe and if it causes side effects.

Eligibility:

Healthy adults 18-50 years old

Design:

Volunteers were screened in a separate screening protocol.

Subjects had 13 visits over 1 year.

Some subjects received just vaccine. Some received vaccine mixed with alum adjuvant.

All subjects received their dose by injection in the upper arm. They received up to two doses, one at the beginning of the study and another 12 weeks later.

Subjects were monitored for 1 hour after injection and called to check on their safety 1 day after.

Subjects recorded their temperature and side effects for 7 days after each vaccination.

Subjects were provided with a thermometer to measure their temperature and a ruler to measure any changes if these occurred on their skin at the injection site.

At all visits, subjects were checked for health changes or problems. They may have had blood drawn.

At some visits, subjects had samples collected from their nose and mouth.

Subjects were counted once for each symptom at the worst severity if they indicated experiencing the symptom more than one time at any severity during the reporting period. The number reported for "Any Local Symptom" is the number of subjects reporting any local symptom at the worst severity. Reactogenicity grading (Mild, Moderate, Severe) was done using the Toxicity Grading Scale for Healthy Adult and Adolescent Volunteers Enrolled in Preventive Vaccine Clinical Trials (FDA Guidance - September 2007).

  7. Number of Subjects With Abnormal Laboratory Measures of Safety [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 308 ]
    Any abnormal laboratory results recorded as unsolicited AEs are summarized. Safety laboratory parameters included hematology (hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), platelets, white blood cell (WBC) and red blood cell (RBC) counts, and neutrophil, lymphocyte, monocyte, eosinophil and basophil percents and counts) and chemistry (alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and creatinine). Complete blood count (CBC) differential, platelet, creatinine and ALT results were collected at screening (≤ 56 days before enrollment), Day 0 prior to study product administration (baseline), and at Days 7, 28, 84, 91 and 112. Institutional laboratory normals as well as the Toxicity Grading Scale for Healthy Adult and Adolescent Volunteers Enrolled in Preventative Vaccine Clinical Trials FDA Guidance, September 2007 were used.

  8. Number of Subjects With One or More Unsolicited Non-Serious Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 28 after product administration ]
    Unsolicited AEs and attribution assessments were recorded in the study database from receipt of the first study product administration through the visit scheduled for 28 days after each study product administration. At other time periods between study product administrations and when greater than 28 days after the last study product administration, only serious AEs (SAEs reported as a separate outcome and in the AE module) and new chronic medical conditions that required ongoing medical management were recorded through the last study visit. The relationship between an AE and the study product was assessed by the investigator on the basis of his or her clinical judgment and the definitions outlined in the protocol. A subject with multiple experiences of the same event is counted once using the event of worst severity.

  9. Number of Subjects With Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 308 ]
    SAEs were reported from receipt of first study product administration through the last expected study visit at Day 308. The relationship between a SAE and the study product was assessed by the investigator on the basis of his or her clinical judgment and the definitions outlined in the protocol. A subject with multiple experiences of the same event is counted once using the event of worst severity.

  10. Number of Subjects Who Had Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Infection Following Product Administration [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 308 ]
    Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) cases were recorded in the study database from receipt of the first study product administration through the last study visit.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Respiratory Syncytial Virus Subtype A (RSV A) Antigen-specific Neutralizing Antibody Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) at 4 Weeks After the First Product Administration of DS-Cav1 Alone or With Alum Adjuvant [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after the first product administration (Week 4) ]
    Neutralizing antibody titers were determined against a reporter RSV A2 virus (RSV A), and were summarized using geometric mean 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50). Negative samples were reported and IC50 titers were calculated using half the limit of detection. Measurements were normalized to international units per milliliter.

  2. Respiratory Syncytial Virus Subtype A (RSV A) Antigen-specific Neutralizing Antibody Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) at 4 Weeks After the Second Product Administration of DS-Cav1 Alone or With Alum Adjuvant [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after the second product administration (Week 16) ]
    Neutralizing antibody titers were determined against a reporter RSV A2 virus (RSV A), and were summarized using geometric mean 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50). Negative samples were reported and IC50 titers were calculated using half the limit of detection. Measurements were normalized to international units per milliliter.
