Brief Summary:

EV07 is an open label phase I clinical trial to evaluate the effect of late boost on HIV-uninfected vaccinees from EV06 trial.

The outcome of the EV06 trial has shown that the vaccine regimen is safe and well tolerated. Preliminary antibody immunogenicity analysis has demonstrated that the DNA/gp120 protein vaccine regimen induced strong gp120, gp140 and V1V2 region-focused binding IgG and neutralizing antibody responses. There is also preliminary evidence that S. mansoni infection may modulate antibody responses induced by vaccination1.

Based on these preliminary immunogenicity results of the EV06 study, a study with an additional boost with DNA-HIV-PT123 and AIDSVAX®B/E (Late Boost) is warranted in order to better investigate and understand the effects of the late boost on the response rate, magnitude and durability of vaccine induced immune responses.

The primary objective of EV07 is to evaluate the ability of the late boost combination of DNA-HIV-PT123 and AIDSVAX® B/E to enhance the pre-existing vaccine induced antibody responses.

  2. Symptomatic and asymptomatic malaria infection (presence of malaria parasites on thick blood smear)
  3. Clinically significant acute or chronic illness at the time of randomization.
  4. Any clinically relevant abnormality on history or examination
  5. Use of immunosuppressive medication (other than inhaled or topical immunosuppressants)
  6. Receipt of immunoglobulin within past 60 days

      • Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC): < 1000/mm3 or < 1.0 x 109/L
      • Absolute Lymphocyte Count (ALC): ≤ 500/mm3 or ≤ 0.5 x 109/L

Volunteers with low S mansoni egg count of <2000 eggs per gram of stool at screening will be asked to forgo treatment until after completion of week 24 visit of the trial. Volunteers with other helminth infections at screening will also receive treatment before vaccination.
