Brief Summary:

The primary objective of this study is:

To demonstrate that VRVg-2 (purified rabies vaccine) is non-inferior to Verorab and Imovax Rabies vaccines in each age group (pediatric and adult populations), in terms of proportion of participants achieving a rabies virus neutralizing antibody (RVNA) titer ≥ 0.5 international units (IU)/ milliliter (mL) at Day 42, i.e., 14 days after the last injection.

The secondary objectives of this study are:

  • To describe the safety profile of VRVg-2 versus Verorab and Imovax Rabies vaccines after each vaccine injection in each age group.
  • To describe the safety of a single booster dose of VRVg-2 in a subset of adults following primary series with VRVg-2, Verorab, and Imovax Rabies vaccine
  • To demonstrate that at least 99% of participants in the VRVg-2 group achieve an RVNA titer ≥ 0.5 IU/mL at Day 42.
  • To demonstrate that VRVg-2 is non-inferior to Verorab and Imovax Rabies vaccines in each age group, in terms of proportion of participants achieving a RVNA titer of ≥ 0.5 IU/mL at Day 28.
  • To describe the immune response induced by VRVg-2 versus Verorab and Imovax Rabies vaccines at Day 28 and Day 42 in all age groups.
  • To describe the immune response induced by VRVg-2 at Day 14 after a single booster of VRVg-2 administered 12 months after the primary series with VRVg-2, Verorab or Imovax Rabies vaccines in a subset of adult participants.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Rabies (Healthy Volunteers) Biological: Purified vero rabies vaccine - serum free VRVg-2 Biological: Purified inactivated rabies vaccine (Verorab) Biological: Purified inactivated rabies vaccine (Imovax rabies) Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The duration of each participant's participation in the study is approximately 7 months (28 day-vaccination period followed by 6 month safety follow-up period). For the subset of adults who receive a single booster dose of VRVg-2, the duration is approximately 18 months (1 booster dose 12 months after the first injection, followed by a 6 month safety follow-up period).

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 1010 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: The study is conducted in an observer-blind manner for all vaccinations. Unblinded staff members, independent of the safety evaluation and other trial evaluations, prepare and administer the vaccine. The Investigator or delegate in charge of safety assessment as well as the participants are blinded and do not know which vaccine is administered.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Participant with RVNA titer ≥ 0.5 IU/mL [ Time Frame: Day 42 ]
    Percentage of participants with RVNA titer above threshold (≥ 0.5 IU/mL). RVNA titers are measured by the rapid fluorescent focus inhibition test (RFFIT) assay


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with immediate adverse events [ Time Frame: Within 30 minutes after vaccination ]
    Immediate adverse events include systemic unsolicited adverse events in the 30 minutes after vaccination

  2. Number of participants with solicited injection site or systemic reactions [ Time Frame: Within 7 days after vaccination ]
    Injection site reactions are tenderness/pain, erythema, and swelling. Systemic reactions are: in participants aged ˃= 1 year to <=23 months: fever, vomiting, crying abnormal, drowsiness, appetite lost, and irritability; in participants aged 2 years and above: fever, headache, malaise, and myalgia.

  3. Number of participants with unsolicited adverse events [ Time Frame: Within 28 days after vaccination ]
    Unsolicited (spontaneously reported) adverse events are unsolicited injection site reactions occurring within 28 days after each injection and unsolicited systemic adverse events between each injection and up to 28 days after the last injection

  4. Number of participants with serious adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after last vaccination ]
    Serious adverse events, including adverse events of special interest, are reported throughout the study.

  5. RVNA titer [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 28, Day 42, Month 12, and Month 12 + 14 days ]
    RVNA titers are measured by RFFIT and expressed as geometric mean titers (GMT)

  6. RVNA titer ≥ 0.5 IU/mL [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 28, Day 42, Month 12, and Month 12 + 14 days ]
    Percentage of participants with RVNA titers above threshold (≥ 0.5 IU/mL). RVNA titers are measured by RFFIT

  7. RVNA titer above lower limit of quantification [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 28, Day 42, Month 12, and Month 12 + 14 days ]
    Percentage of participants with RVNA titers above lower limit of quantification are measured by RFFIT

  8. RVNA titer ratio [ Time Frame: Day 28 and Day 42 ]
    Individual RVNA titer ratio: Day 28 / Day 0, and Day 42 / Day 0 - 9. Percentage of participants with complete or incomplete neutralization at the dilution of 1/5 in RFFIT.

  9. Participant with complete or incomplete neutralization at the starting dilution of the RFFIT assay [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 28, Day 42, Month 12, and Month 12 + 14 days ]
    Percentage of participants with complete or incomplete neutralization at the dilution of 1/5 in RFFIT.
