Experimental: LEISH-F2 + MPL-SE vaccine
Recombinant three antigen Leishmania polyprotein + MPL-SE adjuvant
Biological: LEISH-F2 + MPL-SE
10 μg LEISH-F2 + 25 μg MPL-SE on Days 0, 28 and 56
Other Name: There are no other names for the vaccine.
Active Comparator: Sodium stibogluconate (SSG)
20 mg/kg/day IV for 20 days
Drug: Sodium stibogluconate
20 mg/kg/day IV daily for 20 days
Other Name: Marfan SSG
- Date of Clinical Cure [ Time Frame: Day 84 ]Efficacy of immunotherapy with the LEISH-F2 + MPL-SE vaccine was compared to the efficacy of chemotherapy with sodium stibogluconate in the treatment of CL. Efficacy is measured by the date of clinical cure.
- Adverse Events of Grade 1 Severity or Higher Occurring in ≥ 3 Patients During Active Treatment Phase of the Study. [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 84 ]Safety of immunotherapy with the vaccine was compared to the safety of chemotherapy with sodium stibogluconate. All adverse events are listed regardless of relatedness.
- IgG Antibodies and T-cell Cytokine Responses (IFN-g and IL-10) [ Time Frame: Days 0, 56 or 84, and 168 ]Immunogenicity of the vaccine was evaluated by measuring IgG antibody and T-cell responses to the LEISH-F2 protein and soluble Leishmania antigen (SLA). IgG antibodies were measured by ELISA and T-cell cytokine responses (IFN-g and IL-10) were measured by Luminex. Data is presented as median Post:Pre ratios comparing Days 56/84 or 168 to baseline at Day 0.
