Subjects received 2 doses of the HIV Vaccine 732462 into the deltoid muscle of the dominant arm, on a 0, 1 Month schedule.
Biological: HIV Vaccine 732462
Two doses reconstituted adjuvanted vaccine, injected intramuscularly, at an interval of approximately one month.

Biological: Placebo vaccine
Two doses of placebo, injected intramuscularly, at an interval of approximately one month




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with solicited local symptoms [ Time Frame: During a 7-day follow-up period after each vaccination (i.e. the day of vaccination and 6 subsequent days) ]
    Assessed solicited local symptoms were: pain, redness and swelling. Any = occurrence of the symptom regardless of intensity grade. Grade 3 pain = pain causing inability to perform usual social and functional activities. Grade 1 redness/swelling = redness/swelling spreading beyond (>) 50 millimeters (mm) of injection site.

  2. Number of subjects with solicited general symptoms [ Time Frame: During a 7-day follow-up period after each vaccination (i.e. the day of vaccination and 6 subsequent days) ]
    Assessed solicited general symptoms were abdominal pain, anorexia, diarrhoea, fatigue, headache, myalgia, nausea, sweating, vomiting and temperature [oral temperature equal to or above (≥) 37.7 degrees Celsius (°C)]. Any = occurrence of the symptom regardless of intensity grade. Grade 3 symptoms = symptoms causing inability to perform usual social and functional activities. Grade 3 anorexia = loss of appetite associated with significant weight loss. Grade 3 diarrhoea = bloody diarrhoea or increase of ≥7 stools per 24 hour period, or IV fluid replacement. Grade 3 nausea/vomiting = persistent nausea/vomiting resulting in minimal oral intake for more (>) than 48 hours/in orthostatic hypotension or aggressive rehydration indicated. Grade 3 temperature = temperature between 39.4- 40.5 °C

  3. Number of subjects with unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Day 0-Day 29 after each vaccination ]
    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 was defined as the occurrence of any unsolicited AE regardless of intensity grade or relation to vaccination. Grade 3 AE = an AE which prevented normal, everyday activities. Related = AE assessed by the investigator as related to the vaccination.

  4. Number of subjects with Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) and medically attended visits [ Time Frame: From Screening at Day -42 and up to the additional visit post study end, Month 12 ]
    Serious adverse events (SAEs) assessed include medical occurrences that result in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization or result in disability/incapacity. Medically attended visits include any kind of medical attention such as hospitalization, an emergency room visit or a visit to or from medical personnel (medical doctor) for any reason.

  5. Number of subjects with study pre-defined Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-related adverse events [ Time Frame: From Day 0 to study end at Month 12 ]
    Study pre-defined HIV-related AEs included: cluster of differentiation-4 (CD4) count decrease [(≥)25% post vaccination], viral load increase [(≥)50 copies per (/) milliliter (mL) of HIV ribonucleic acid (RNA) post-vaccination, for cohort A and at least 0.5 log post-vaccination for cohort B], initiation of Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy (HAART) for cohort B, or changes in HAART for cohort A, abnormal biochemistry and haematology parameters.

  6. Number of subjects presenting abnormal biochemical and haematological values (any and grade ≥ 3) [ Time Frame: From Day 0 to study end at Month 12 ]
    Assessed biochemical and haematological parameters included: Absolute neutrophil count (ANC), Haemoglobin (Hgb), Partial Thromboplastin Time (PTT), Platelets decreased (PLT/D), WBC decreased (WBC/D), Albumin serum low (ALB/SL), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), Alanine aminotransferase (SGPT), Aspartate aminotransferase (SGOT), Bilirubin Total (BL/T), Creatinine (CRT), Potassium serum high (K/SH), Potassium serum low (K/SL), Sodium serum high (Na/SH), Sodium serum low (NA/SL), Uric acid (UA).

  7. Time to initiation of HAART therapy (for treatment-naïve HIV-infected subjects) or change in HAART therapy (for HIV-infected subjects receiving HAART) [ Time Frame: From Day 0 to Month 12 ]
    Time to HAART initiation and/or HAART changes was expressed in days from administration of first dose.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. CD4 count and change of CD4 count from baseline [ Time Frame: From Day 0 to Month 12 ]
    Baseline was defined as the value measured in the pre-vaccination blood sample obtained at Day 0 prior to the administration of the first dose.

  2. Viral load and change in viral load from baseline [ Time Frame: From Day 0 to Month 12 ]
    Baseline was defined as the value measured in the pre-vaccination blood sample obtained at Day 0 prior to the administration of the first dose.

  3. Cluster of differentiation 40 ligand (CD40L+) CD4+ T-cell-mediated immune response (as measured by ICS) [ Time Frame: Months 0, 4, 12 and at Day 44 ]
    CD40L+ and CD4+ T cell immune response was assessed via Intracellular Cytokine Staining (ICS) and included: breadth which was by looking at response to at least 1, 2, 3 antigens and to all 4 antigens [p17, p24, Necrosis Factor (Nef) and Reverse Transcriptase (RT)], intensity which was defined as frequency of the 4 antigent-specific CD40L+CD4+ T cells expressing at least Interleukin 2 (IL-2) or Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNFa) and/or Interferon gamma (INFg) and cytokine co-expression profile defined as the frequency of the 4 antigen-specific CD40L+CD4+ Tcells expressing IL-2 and/or TNFa and/or IFNg.
