Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: October 13, 2021)
  • Number of Participants Who Became Infected With Wild-Type Cytomegalovirus Infection Starting at 4 Weeks Post Last Dose (V160 3-dose Regimen Group and Placebo Group) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks post last vaccination (Month 7) up to ~Month 24 ]
    Cytomegalovirus infection (CMVi) was defined as the detection of wild-type cytomegalovirus (CMV) (non vaccine type) by polymerase chain reaction in a single saliva or urine sample in a previously CMV-uninfected participant. CMVi cases in the 3-dose regimen and placebo groups were reported and incidence rate (per 100 person-years) calculated based on follow-up time starting at 4 weeks post last dose (Month 7) through approximately Month 24 (or time point to reach required cases for assessment). The percent reduction in CMVi incidence rate in the 3-dose regimen group compared to the placebo group was assessed.
  • Number of Participants With Solicited Injection-site Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 5 days after each vaccination ]
    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant, temporally associated with the use of study treatment, whether or not considered related to the study treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of a study treatment. Following vaccination with V160 or placebo, the number of participants with solicited injection-site AEs was assessed. The solicited injection-site AEs assessed were redness/erythema, swelling, and pain.
  • Number of Participants With Solicited Systemic AEs [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after each vaccination ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant, temporally associated with the use of study treatment, whether or not considered related to the study treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of a study treatment. Following vaccination with V160 or placebo, the number of participants with solicited systemic AEs was assessed. The solicited systemic AEs assessed were fatigue, joint pain/arthralgia, muscle pain/myalgia, and headache.
  • Number of Participants With Vaccine-related Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after each vaccination ]
    A serious adverse event (SAE) is an AE that is life-threatening, requires or prolongs an existing hospitalization, results in persistent or significant disability or incapacity, is a congenital anomaly or birth defect, or is another important medical event deemed such by medical or scientific judgment. Relatedness of an SAE to the study vaccine was determined by the investigator. Following vaccination with V160 or placebo, the number of participants with vaccine-related serious adverse events was assessed.
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 28, 2018)
  • Incidence of Cytomegalovirus Infection in the 3-dose Regimen Group [ Time Frame: Up to Month 36 ]
    CMV infection is defined as detection of CMV (non-vaccine type) by polymerase chain reaction in a single saliva or urine sample in a previously CMV-uninfected participant. The incidence of CMV infection in participants receiving the 3-dose V160 regimen will be assessed.
  • Solicited Injection-site AEs [ Time Frame: Up to 5 days after each vaccination ]
    The percentage of participants with one or more solicited injection-site AE (pain/tenderness, erythema/redness, swelling) will be assessed.
  • Solicited Systemic AEs [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after each vaccination ]
    The percentage of participants with one or more solicited systemic AEs (headache, fatigue, muscle pain, joint pain) will be assessed.
  • Vaccine-related Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after each vaccination ]
    The percentage of participants with a vaccine-related SAE will be assessed.

The percent reduction in CMVi incidence rate in the 2-dose regimen group compared to the placebo group was assessed.

Brief Title  ICMJE V160 2-Dose and 3-Dose Regimens in Healthy Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Seronegative Females (V160-002)
Official Title  ICMJE Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Phase 2b, Multi-center Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Efficacy and Immunogenicity of a 2-Dose and a 3-Dose Regimen of V160 (Cytomegalovirus [CMV] Vaccine) in Healthy Seronegative Women, 16 to 35 Years of Age
Brief Summary This study evaluated the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of the cytomegalovirus (CMV) vaccine (V160) administered in a 2-dose or 3-dose regimen to healthy seronegative women 16 to 35 years of age. Participants received blinded V160 on Day 1, Month 2, and Month 6 (3-dose regimen), V160 on Day 1 and Month 6 and placebo at Month 2 (2-dose regimen), or placebo on Day 1, Month 2, and Month 6, and were followed to approximately Month 24. The primary hypothesis of the study was that administration of a 3-dose regimen of V160 will reduce the incidence of primary CMV infection compared to placebo.
