Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate different dose levels of the investigational RSV maternal vaccine (GSK3888550A) based on safety/reactogenicity and immune response data.

As this is the first time the investigational RSV maternal vaccine (GSK3888550A) is being been used in humans, this study will be performed in healthy non-pregnant women 18-45 years of age before testing in pregnant women.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infections Biological: GSK3888550A RSV Maternal vaccine formulation 1 Biological: GSK3888550A RSV Maternal vaccine formulation 2 Biological: GSK3888550A RSV Maternal vaccine formulation 3 Drug: Placebo (Normal Saline) Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Healthy non-pregnant women 18-45 years of age will be randomized in a 1:1:1:1 ratio to receive one of three dose levels (30, 60, 120 micrograms [µg]) of the investigational RSV maternal vaccine (GSK3888550A) or placebo, administered as a single intramuscular injection (IM).

There will be a screening visit and five study visits scheduled at Day 1 (study vaccination), Day 8, Day 31, Day 61, and Day 91 to evaluate the primary and secondary objectives of safety/reactogenicity and immunogenicity profiles of the 3 dose levels. Subjects will also be contacted at Day 181. During this contact, the investigator (or delegate) will ask the subject if she has experienced any serious adverse events (SAEs) and or any adverse events (AEs) leading to study withdrawal since the last study visit (Day 360), as well as if she has become pregnant during the post-vaccination period. The investigator (or delegate) will also ask the subject about concomitant vaccinations/products/medications that she has received since the last study visit (D91). Contact should be performed preferably via telephone. Other means of contact (email/other) may be acceptable provided the required information can be fully collected.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with any solicited local adverse events (AE) [ Time Frame: During a 7-day follow-up period (i.e., on the day of vaccination and 6 subsequent days). ]
    Assessed solicited local symptoms include pain, redness and swelling, at the injection site. Any = occurrence of the AE regardless of intensity grade.

  2. Number of subjects with any solicited general AEs [ Time Frame: During a 7-day follow-up period (i.e., on the day of vaccination and 6 subsequent days). ]
    Assessed solicited general symptoms include fatigue, fever [defined as oral temperature higher than or equal to (≥) 38.0 degrees Celsius (°C), or 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (°F], gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and/or abdominal pain) and headache. Any = occurrence of the symptom regardless of intensity grade.

  3. Number of subjects with any unsolicited AEs [ Time Frame: During a 30-day follow-up period after vaccination (i.e., on the day of vaccination and 29 subsequent days). ]
    An unsolicited AE covers any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation subject temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product and reported in addition to those solicited during the clinical study and any solicited symptom with onset outside the specified period of follow-up for solicited symptoms. Any is defined as the occurrence of any unsolicited AE regardless of intensity grade or relation to vaccination.

  4. Number of subjects with serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From Day 1 (vaccination) up to Day 30 (i.e., on the day of vaccination and 29 subsequent days). ]
    Assessed SAEs include any untoward medical occurrence that results in death, is life-threatening, requires hospitalization, or prolongation of hospitalization or results in disability/incapacity, as well as any spontaneous pregnancy loss, early neonatal death and any congenital anomaly or birth defect identified in the offspring of a study subject.

  5. Number of subjects presenting haematological laboratory abnormalities. [ Time Frame: At Day 8 ]
    Assessed haematological laboratory parameters include erythrocytes, white blood cells (WBC) and differential count, platelets count and hemoglobin level. Haematological abnormalities refer to results above or below normal ranges.

  6. Number of subjects presenting haematological laboratory abnormalities. [ Time Frame: At Day 31 ]
    Assessed haematological laboratory parameters include erythrocytes, white blood cells (WBC) and differential count, platelets count and hemoglobin level. Haematological abnormalities refer to results above or below normal ranges.

  7. Number of subjects presenting biochemical laboratory abnormalities [ Time Frame: At Day 8 ]
    Assessed biochemical laboratory parameters include: alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN). Biochemical abnormalities refer to results above or below normal ranges.

  8. Number of subjects presenting biochemical laboratory abnormalities [ Time Frame: At Day 31 ]
    Assessed biochemical laboratory parameters include: alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN). Biochemical abnormalities refer to results above or below normal ranges.

  9. Number of subjects presenting hematological laboratory abnormalities, by maximum grading [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 31 ]
    Assessed haematological laboratory parameters include erythrocytes, white blood cells (WBC) and differential count, platelets count and hemoglobin level, as graded by the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] Guidance for Industry "Toxicity Grading Scale for Healthy Adult and Adolescent Volunteers Enrolled in Preventive Vaccine Clinical Trials. Assessed grades from baseline to Day 31 are Grade 1 = mild, Grade 2 = moderate, Grade 3 = severe and Grade 4 = life threatening, as compared to the baseline status of the same parameters, at baseline [e.g. WBC Grade 1 - Grade 1 = WBC Grade 1 at baseline versus Grade 1 from Day 8 to Day 31].

  10. Number of subjects presenting biochemical laboratory abnormalities, by maximum grading [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Day 31 ]
    Assessed biochemical laboratory parameters include alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN), as graded by the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] Guidance for Industry "Toxicity Grading Scale for Healthy Adult and Adolescent Volunteers Enrolled in Preventive Vaccine Clinical Trials. Assessed grades from baseline to Day 31 are Grade 1 = mild, Grade 2 = moderate, Grade 3 = severe and Grade 4 = life threatening, as compared to the baseline status of the same parameters, at baseline [e.g. ALT Grade 1 - Grade 1 = ALT Grade 1 at baseline versus Grade 1 from Day 8 to Day 31].


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with SAEs [ Time Frame: From Day 1 (vaccination) up to Day 91 and up to Day 181. ]
    Assessed SAEs include any untoward medical occurrence that results in death, is life-threatening, requires hospitalization, or prolongation of hospitalization or results in disability/incapacity, as well as any spontaneous pregnancy loss, early neonatal death and any congenital anomaly or birth defect identified in the offspring of a study subject.

  2. Neutralizing antibody (Nab) titers against RSV serotype A. [ Time Frame: At pre-vaccination (Screening visit), 7 days post vaccination (Day 8), 30 days post vaccination (Day 31), 60 days post vaccination (Day 61) and 90 days post vaccination (Day 91) ]
    Neutralizing antibody titers are given as geometric mean titers (GMTs) and expressed as Estimated Dose: serum dilution giving a 60% reduction of the signal compared to a control without serum (ED60).

  3. Anti-Respiratory Syncytial Virus Prefusion 3 (RSVPreF3) Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody concentrations. [ Time Frame: At pre-vaccination (Screening visit), 7 days post vaccination (Day 8), 30 days post vaccination (Day 31), 60 days post vaccination (Day 61) and 90 days post vaccination (Day 91) ]
    Concentrations are presented as geometric mean concentrations (GMCs), expressed in Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) units per millilitre (EL.U/mL), calculated on subjects seropositive (subjects with anti-RSVPreF3 antibody concentrations equal to or above the assay cut-off).
