  Purpose

The safety and immunogenicity of the GSK324332A vaccine has been evaluated up to Month 12 post-vaccination in the primary study. In the extension studies presented here, the persistence of the cellular and humoral immune responses will be evaluated 30 and 42 months after the first vaccination in young and elderly adults who received the GSK324332A vaccine. This protocol posting deals only with objectives & outcome measures of the extension phase at Months 30 and 42. No new recruitment will be done in these extension phases of the primary study. No vaccines are administered in this phase of the study.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequencies of gE-specific CD4 T cells with at least two antigen-specific cytokines (IFN-У, IL-2, TNF-α, CD40L). [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42 after the first vaccination. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequencies of VZV-specific CD4 T cells with at least two antigen-specific cytokines (IFN-У, IL-2, TNF-α, CD40L). [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42 after the first vaccination. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequencies of gE-specific CD4/CD8 T cells with antigen-specific IFN-У and/or IL-2 and/or TNF α and/or CD40L secretion/expression. [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequencies of VZV-specific CD4/CD8 T cells with antigen-specific IFN-У and/or IL-2 and/or TNF α and/or CD40L secretion/expression. [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Anti-gE -Ab concentrations [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Anti-VZV Ab concentrations [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequencies of gE-specific memory B cells [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequencies of VZV-specific memory B cells [ Time Frame: At months 30 and 42 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of SAEs [ Time Frame: From last visit (Month 12) of primary study to month 42 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of clinically diagnosed HZ episodes [ Time Frame: From last visit (Month 12) of primary study to month 42 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
