Brief Summary:
This is a Phase II randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in 120 males and non-pregnant females, 18 to 49 years old, inclusive, who are in good health and meet all eligibility criteria. This clinical trial will be conducted at 3 United States sites and is designed to assess the safety, reactogenicity, and immunogenicity of two priming doses of M-001 followed by a seasonal quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV4). The duration of this trial for each subject will be approximately 7 months. The entire study duration will be approximately 24 months. The primary objectives are: 1) To assess the safety as measured by vaccine related adverse events, reactogenicity, and laboratory adverse events of two doses of M-001 vaccine, each dose administered approximately 21 days apart; and 2) To assess the T cell responses to M-001 component peptides following two doses of M-001.

  3. Are males or non-pregnant females, 18 to 49 years old, inclusive.
  4. Are in good health*.

    *As determined by medical history and targeted physical examination to evaluate acute or currently ongoing chronic medical diagnoses or conditions, defined as those that have been present for at least 90 days, which would affect the assessment of the safety of subjects or the immunogenicity of study vaccinations. Chronic medical diagnoses or conditions should be stable for the last 60 days prior to investigational vaccine study product administration. This includes no change in chronic prescription medication, dose, or frequency as a result of deterioration of the chronic medical diagnosis or condition in the 60 days prior to enrollment and investigational vaccine study product administration. Any prescription 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 deviation 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 deviation 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 and do not indicate a worsening of medical diagnosis or condition. Similarly, medication changes subsequent to enrollment and investigational study product vaccination are acceptable provided there was no deterioration in the subject's chronic medical condition that necessitated a medication change. All chronic medical condtions should pose no additional risk to the subject or interference with the evaluation of responses to study vaccination. Note: Topical, nasal, and inhaled medications (with the exception of inhaled corticosteroids as outlined in the Subject Exclusion Criteria), herbals, vitamins, and supplements are permitted.
