  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine if Valortim, or one or more of its selected formulation components, induces a wheal reaction when introduced percutaneously.

Two of 4 subjects dosed in a previous study with a modified formulation of Valortim experienced treatment related adverse events which were suggestive of allergic or allergic-like reactions. In order to better characterize these reactions and determine if they represent allergic or allergic-like reactions to Valortim or one or more of its components, skin testing of Valortim and selected components on naïve and Valortim-exposed subjects will be performed in this study

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Skin Testing Results [ Time Frame: Initial results assessed after 15minutes and up to 72 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Assessment of any wheal reaction from the study drug or its selected components and how this compares to the positive and negative control


Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: July 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Stage I
Three (3) healthy male or female volunteers aged 18-59 years, not previously exposed to Valortim and who do not have pre-existing allergies
Biological: Valortim and selected Components
  • Valortim (Lot #10-08-001, 25 mg/mL) will be filtered through a 0.22 µm syringe filter and diluted 1:1000, 1:100, 1:10, and 1:1 in saline.
  • Polysorbate 80 will be diluted in saline to the following concentrations: 0.06 mg/mL, 0.2 mg/mL, and 0.6 mg/mL.
  • Mannitol (30 mg/mL) will be diluted in saline to the following concentrations: 1:1000, 1:100, 1:10, and 1:1
  • Histamine (1 mg/mL), positive control
  • Saline (0.9%), negative control
Other Name: Anthrax
Experimental: Stage II
Up to 4 healthy male or female volunteers aged 18-59 previously exposed to intravenous (IV) Valortim in PharmAthene Study #0036-08-05
Drug: Valortim and Selected Components

• It is anticipated that up to 4 subjects that received Valortim in a previous study (#0036-08-05) will participate in Stage II of the study; two of these subjects experienced adverse events while being dosed with Valortim. Subjects will each be tested percutaneously with Valortim, polysorbate 80, mannitol, histamine, and saline.

  • Only one subject will be skin tested in a single day.
  • The appropriate dilution for Valortim, mannitol, and polysorbate 80 will be based on the results from Stage I of this study. As was done in Stage I, Valortim will be filtered through a 0.22 µm syringe filter. Histamine (1 mg/mL) and saline (0.9%) will be used as the positive and negative controls, respectively
Other Name: Anthrax
