Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: August 17, 2021)
  • Number of Participants With qRT-PCR or Culture-confirmed Influenza-like Illness [ Time Frame: From Day 14 post-second vaccination day to end of influenza season, an average of 4 months per participant per year ]
    Prevention of influenza disease by comparing the occurrence of either qRT-PCR or culture confirmed influenza in the M-001 experimental group vs. placebo caused by any influenza A or B virus in association with a protocol defined Influenza Like Illness.
  • Number of Participants With One or More Serious Adverse Events, New Onset Chronic Illness, and Non-solicited Adverse Events [ Time Frame: From Day 0 to end of study completion by participant which coincides with end of flu season in the respective year, an average of 4 months per participant per year ]
    Number of participants with one or more Serious Adverse Events, New Onset Chronic illness, and Non-solicited Adverse Events assessed during one flu season per participant
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: February 23, 2018)
  • Clinical Efficacy: PCR and Culture Confirmed Influenza [ Time Frame: Up to 2 flu seasons (approximately 1.5 years) ]
    If a participant presents with ILI, then we will run Polymerase chain reaction (PCR). If the PCR is positive, then we will culture confirm. Outcome measure is percentage of PCR and culture confirmed influenza cases in the M-001 experimental group vs. placebo caused by any influenza A or B virus in association with Influenza-like illness (ILI) symptoms.
  • Safety: Occurrence of vaccine-related serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Occurrence of vaccine-related serious adverse events (SAEs) such as solicited and unsolicited injection site and systemic reactogenicity events.

    Occurrence of culture confirmed influenza in the M-001 experimental group vs. placebo caused by any influenza A or B virus in association with a protocol defined Influenza Like Illness.
  • Number of Participants With Reduction of Severity of qRT-PCR or Culture-confirmed Influenza [ Time Frame: From Day 14 post-second vaccination day to end of influenza season, an average of 4 months per participant per year ]
    Assessed by reduction of severity of either qRT-PCR or culture-confirmed influenza illness by the reduction due to M-001 in the average number of days with respiratory or systemic symptoms during the first laboratory-confirmed influenza illness episode.
  • Number of Participants With Influenza-like Illness Symptoms [ Time Frame: From Day 14 post-second vaccination day to end of influenza season, an average of 4 months per participant per year ]
    Assessment of number of participants having ILI symptoms in the experimental or control group
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: February 23, 2018)
  • Clinical Efficacy: PCR Confirmed Influenza [ Time Frame: Up to 2 flu seasons (approximately 1.5 years) ]
    Percentage of PCR confirmed influenza cases in the M-001 experimental group vs. placebo
  • Lot consistency [ Time Frame: 42 days ]
    Frequency of T-cell subsets from participants in the experimental group, expressing interferon gamma (IFN-g) in cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4+) peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) after stimulation with M-001 16 days after the second dose of M-001 as compared to baseline.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE A Pivotal Trial to Assess the Safety and Clinical Efficacy of the M-001 as a Standalone Universal Flu Vaccine
Official Title  ICMJE A Pivotal Multi-center, Randomized, Modified Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Phase 3 Trial to Assess the Safety and Clinical Efficacy of M-001 Influenza Vaccine Administered Intra-muscularly Twice in Older Adults and Elderly (≥50 Years).
Brief Summary The pivotal Phase 3 trial plans to enroll a total of approximately 12,460 participants aged 50+ over two years. Participants will be immunized twice with the M-001 universal influenza vaccine candidate or placebo and then followed for up to 2 seasons. The trial will evaluate the number of influenza cases in each group and the severity of illness during the follow up period.
Detailed Description

The placebo-controlled pivotal clinical efficacy Phase 3 trial plans to enroll a total of approximately 12,460 participants over two years. Participants will be immunized twice with the M-001 influenza vaccine candidate or placebo. Influenza incidence and illness severity will be evaluated throughout the follow-up period of up to two years. Participants will be 50 years and older, with at least half over 65 years of age.

The trial is expected to take place in eastern European countries and begin prior to the 2018/19 Northern Hemisphere flu season.

Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 3
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
Experimental group: 2 immunizations with M-001 Control group: 2 injection of saline (placebo)
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description:
All parties are blinded except for the person who prepares the syringe for injection. The M-001 is cloudy white and its appearance is different from the transparent saline that is used for placebo. The person prepares the syringe with an opaque sticker that fully covers the syringe contents. People administering the syringe are not involved or present during syringe preparation, and are thus fully blinded.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Influenza
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Biological: M-001
    A recombinant protein containing 9 conserved epitopes from Influenza A and B that are common to the vast majority of influenza viruses.
    Other Name: Multimeric-001
  • Biological: Saline
    0.9% sodium chloride (NaCl)
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: M-001
    Participants will be vaccinated with 1mg dose of M-001 twice: Once at Day 0, and once at Day 21.
    Intervention: Biological: M-001
  • Placebo Comparator: Saline
    Participants will be vaccinated with saline twice: Once at Day 0, and once at Day 21.
    Intervention: Biological: Saline
