Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence, intensity of solicited local and general adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Days 0-6 after each vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence, intensity of unsolicited AEs [ Time Frame: Days 0-29 after each vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence, intensity of unsolicited AEs [ Time Frame: Any time during the study up to Day 29 after the last vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of all serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: During the entire study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence and relationship to vaccination of any new onset of autoimmune diseases and other immune mediated inflammatory disorders [ Time Frame: During the entire study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Hematological and biochemical evaluations [ Time Frame: Months 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequency of CD4 T cells specific for Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) antigens. [ Time Frame: Month 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • VZV-specific antibody concentrations [ Time Frame: Month 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of CD4 T cells specific for VZV antigens [ Time Frame: Months 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • VZV-specific antibody concentrations [ Time Frame: Months 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Confirmed Herpes Zoster (HZ) cases [ Time Frame: During the entire study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • HZ pain severity in subjects with confirmed HZ [ Time Frame: 4-week period following the onset of the HZ rash ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • HZ disease severity as determined by the total score of HZ-associated disease in subjects with confirmed HZ [ Time Frame: 4-week period following the onset of the HZ rash ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN) in the entire study cohort [ Time Frame: During the entire study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of other HZ-associated complications following the onset of HZ rash in subjects with confirmed HZ in the entire study cohort. [ Time Frame: During the entire study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who the investigator believes that they can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol;
  • Male and female subjects at least 18 years old at the time of vaccination;
  • Serological evidence of prior VZV infection for all subjects born in 1980 or later and for subjects born outside the US before 1980 in a tropical or sub-tropical region. No testing for serological evidence of prior VZV infection is required for US subjects born before 1980;
  • Has undergone autologous HCT within the past 50-70 days for treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma (T or B cell), myeloma or acute myeloid leukemia, and there are no plans for additional HCTs
  • Written informed consent obtained from the subject;
  • If the subject is female, she must be of non-childbearing potential or if she is of childbearing potential, she must practice adequate contraception for 30 days prior to vaccination, have a negative pregnancy test and continue such precautions for 2 months after completion of the vaccination series.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Use of any investigational non-registered product other than the study vaccine(s) within 30 days preceding the first dose of study vaccine, or planned use during the study period;
  • Administration or planned administration of a vaccine that is not part of the study protocol since transplantation. However licensed non-replicating vaccines (i.e. inactivated and subunit vaccines, including inactivated and subunit influenza vaccines, with or without adjuvant) may be administered up to 8 days prior to dose 1;
  • Administration of immunoglobulins since transplantation;
  • Previous vaccination against varicella or HZ;
  • History of HZ within the previous 12 months;
  • Known exposure to VZV since transplantation;
  • Evidence of active infection at the time of enrollment including a temperature of ≥ 37.5° C or any serious HCT-related complication;
  • History of allergic disease or reactions likely to be exacerbated by any component of the vaccine;
  • Hypersensitivity or intolerance to acyclovir or valacyclovir;
  • Pregnant or lactating female.
