A Study to Evaluate the One Year Long-term Persistence of Immune Responses Following Two Different Rabies Vaccine Post-exposure Regimens in Chinese Children

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03192371
Recruitment Status : Withdrawn (Due to supply constraints & prioritization according to medical need (availability of alternative rabies vaccines), Rabipur will no longer be supplied to China.)

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the 1 year immunogenicity persistence of Rabipur in children 6-17 years of age, and compare the Zagreb regimen with the Essen regimen.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Virus Diseases Biological: Rabipur Phase 4

Detailed Description:

The clinical basis for the last renewal of the Rabipur license in China was the results from study V49_24 (NCT01680016), an immunogenicity and safety trial conducted in Chinese children (6 to 17 years) and adults (≥51 years), which confirmed the non-inferior immunogenicity of the Zagreb versus the conventional Essen post exposure prophylaxis intramuscular (PEP IM) regimen at Day 15 for both age groups.

At the time of license renewal in 2015, the Chinese health authorities requested that GSK continue to conduct immunogenicity persistence follow-ups for at least 1 year to compare the Zagreb regimen with the Essen regimen in populations under 17 years old.

V49_24E1 is an extension study to meet this request, in which subjects aged 17 years or younger who were immunized in the parent trial V49_24 will be recalled for a blood immunogenicity analysis approximately 4-5 years after the original vaccination.

Actual Enrollment : 0 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Subjects will be stratified into age subsets of equal numbers within each age cohort (children: 6 to11 years of age and 12 to 17 years of age).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Zagreb 2-1-1 Group
4 doses of Rabipur vaccine, administered intramuscularly according to the Zagreb (2-1-1) regimen (i.e., 2 doses of vaccine administered on Day 1 and 1 dose of vaccine administered on Days 8 and 22).
Biological: Rabipur
Rabies vaccine administered as an intramuscular injection according to Zagreb or Essen regimen to subjects aged ≥6 to ≤17 years.
Other Name: Rabies Vaccine (Chicken Embryo Cell) for Human use

Experimental: Essen 1-1-1-1-1 Group
5 doses of Rabipur vaccine, administered intramuscularly according to the Essen (1-1-1-1-1) regimen (i.e., 1 dose of vaccine administered on Days 1, 4, 8, 15, and 29).
Biological: Rabipur
Rabies vaccine administered as an intramuscular injection according to Zagreb or Essen regimen to subjects aged ≥6 to ≤17 years.
Other Name: Rabies Vaccine (Chicken Embryo Cell) for Human use




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of immunogenicity in terms of antibody concentrations. [ Time Frame: Study days 1, 15, 43, 197 and 393. ]

    Immunogenicity is assessed in terms of Geometric Mean Concentration (GMC) of Rabies Virus Neutralizing Antibody (RVNA) concentrations.

    Comparison between Zagreb and Essen groups will be reported in terms of difference between GMCs.


  2. Percentage of subjects with RVNA concentrations ≥ 0.5 IU/mL [ Time Frame: Study days 1, 15, 43, 197 and 393. ]
    Comparison between Zagreb and Essen groups will be reported in terms of difference between percentages of subjects with RVNA concentrations ≥ 0.5 IU/mL.

  3. All Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) and Adverse Events (AEs) leading to subject withdrawal. [ Time Frame: From Day1/Visit 1 through Day 393/Visit 11 (study termination). ]

    Only SAEs and unsolicited AEs leading to study withdrawal will be collected. SAEs to be assessed include medical occurrences that result in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, result in disability/incapacity, result in congenital anomaly/or birth defect or significant medical event that may not be immediately life threatening or resulting in death or hospitalization but may jeopardize the subject or require intervention to prevent one of the other outcomes listed.

    An unsolicited AE is an AE that was not solicited using a Subject Diary and that was spontaneously communicated by a subject and/or parent(s)/legal guardian(s) who has signed the informed consent. Potential unsolicited AEs may be medically attended (defined as symptoms or illnesses requiring hospitalization, or emergency room visit, or visit to/by a health care provider), or were of concern to the subject and/or parent(s)/legal guardian(s).
