  Purpose

The purpose of this trial is to assess the safety and immunogenicity of MVA ME-TRAP and AdCH63 ME-TRAP candidate vaccines in healthy children and adult volunteers in a malaria endemic region. The regimen proposed here has protected non-immune volunteers in Oxford against sporozoite challenge, and so may be protective against naturally acquired infection in The Gambia.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of a heterologous prime-boost vaccine strategy with AdCh63 ME-TRAP and MVA ME-TRAP [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of the study, an expected average of 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To assess the safety of a heterologous prime-boost vaccine strategy with AdCh63 ME-TRAP and MVA ME-TRAP in healthy adults and children in The Gambia by recording local and systemic solicited and unsolicited adverse events


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity of a heterologous prime-boost vaccine strategy with AdCh63 ME-TRAP and MVA ME-TRAP [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of the study, an expected average of 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the immunogenicity of a heterologous prime-boost vaccine strategy with AdCh63 ME-TRAP and MVA ME-TRAP in healthy adults and children in The Gambia by assessing induced antibody and T cell response to the vaccine insert.
