  Purpose

This is a phase I study to test the immunogenicity of a recombinant vaccine based on Modified Vaccinia Ankara (MVA) expressing the antigen 85A (from Mycobacterium tuberculosis). This vaccine is delivered intradermally by a needle injection in healthy volunteers previously vaccinated with BCG.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The occurance and severity of local and systemic side effects will be monitored. Vital signs and local reactions will be monitored at 30 and 60 minutes after each mmunisation (and after 7 days).
  • Blood will be taken at: the screening visit, prior to the BCG vaccination, 1 and 4 weeks after the BCG vaccination, and also at 1,4, 8, 12 and 24 weeks after the MVA85A vaccination.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity will be measured: The induction of T cell responses (as measured by an interferon-gamma Elispot assay) will be performed on PBMCs from blood samples taken at the specified time points.
  • Proliferation assays and cytotoxic T cell assays will be performed. Other serological measures of immune response, i.e. antibody titres will be analysed on frozen plasma samples.
