Streptococcus pneumoniae is the major cause of bacterial infection in HIV-infected patients. The current pneumococcal vaccine is poorly efficacious in patients with a CD4 cell count lower than 500/mm3. This study will test the efficacy and safety of a new pneumococcal vaccine strategy in patients with a CD4 cell count between 200 and 500/mm3.

Condition Intervention Phase
HIV Infections
Biological: 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (vaccine)
Biological: 23-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (vaccine)
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Immunological Efficacy of a Prime-Boost Strategy Combining a 7-Valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV) Followed by a 23-Valent Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine (PPV) Versus PPV Alone in HIV-Infected Adults. ANRS 114 PNEUMOVAC.

Further study details as provided by French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients responders to 7 pneumococcal polysaccharides at W8

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Persistence of antibody responses at W24 and W96
  • Clinical tolerance of pneumococcal vaccines at W8
  • Evolution of the CD4 count and plasma HIV RNA load
  • Immunological substudy (predictive factors of the antibody responses) at W24

Estimated Enrollment: 212
Study Start Date: February 2003
Study Completion Date: January 2006
Detailed Description:
Streptococcus pneumoniae (SP) is the major cause of bacterial infection in HIV-infected patients. The 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide (PPV) is poorly immunogenic in patients with CD4 below 500 cells/mm3. The purpose of this multicentric national study is to evaluate whether a prime with a 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), able to induce immunological memory, would improve immunogenicity against SP polysaccharides. 212 HIV-1 infected patients, with a CD4 count between 200 and 500/mm3, will be randomly assigned to one of two vaccine groups: PCV at Week 0 followed by PPV at Week 4 or PPV alone at Week 4. Evaluation will be done at week 8. The primary endpoint is the proportion of patients who had antibody responses against 7 pneumococcal polysaccharides at Week 8. Secondary endpoints include the persistence of antibody responses at Weeks 24 and 96, vaccines safety and occurrence of pneumococcal disease over time.
