A Phase I Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Immunogenicity of eOD-GT8 60mer Vaccine, Adjuvanted
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This is a phase 1 first-in-human clinical trial to assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of eOD-GT8 60mer Vaccine, Adjuvanted, in up to 48 healthy adult HIV-negative volunteers. The study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled dosage-escalation Phase 1 study intended to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of eOD-GT8 60mer Vaccine, Adjuvanted in a prime-boost regimen.

Safety and Tolerability: frequency of local and systemic reactogenicity events [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of the study regimens based on the frequency of local and systemic reactogenicity events as assessed using the DAIDS Table for Grading the Severity of Adult and Pediatric Adverse Events (v2.1).
Safety and Tolerability: proportion of volunteers with moderate or greater unsolicited adverse events [ Time Frame: 16 months ]
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of the study regimens based on the proportion of volunteers with moderate or greater unsolicited adverse events including safety laboratory as assessed using the DAIDS Table for Grading the Severity of Adult and Pediatric Adverse Events (v2.1).
Safety and Tolerability: proportion of volunteers in each group with potential immune-mediated diseases (pIMDs) [ Time Frame: 16 months ]
To evaluate the proportion of volunteers in each group with potential immune-mediated diseases (pIMDs) based on a defined list of pIMDs in the study protocol.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Immunogenicity: Frequency of responses [ Time Frame: 16 months ]
To evaluate the frequency of eOD-GT8 60mer-specific, eOD-GT8 monomer-specific, and epitope-specific serum antibody responses after 1st and/or 2nd immunization compared to baseline and placebo
Immunogenicity: Magnitude of responses [ Time Frame: 16 months ]
To evaluate the magnitude of eOD-GT8 60mer-specific, eOD-GT8 monomer-specific, and epitope-specific serum antibody responses after 1st and/or 2nd immunization compared to baseline and placebo

Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Healthy male and female, including transgender individuals, as assessed by a medical history, physical exam, and laboratory tests;
At least 18 years of age on the day of screening and has not reached his/her 51st birthday on the day of first IP administration;
Willing to comply with the requirements of the protocol and available for follow-up for the planned duration of the study;
In the opinion of the Principal Investigator or designee and based on Assessment of Informed Consent Understanding results, has understood the information provided and potential impact and/or risks linked to vaccination and participation in the trial; written informed consent will be obtained from the volunteer before any study-related procedures are performed;
Willing to undergo HIV testing, risk reduction counseling and receive HIV test result;
All heterosexually active female volunteers must commit to use an effective method of contraception for 4 months following investigational product administration
All female volunteers must be willing to undergo urine pregnancy tests at time points indicated in the Schedule of Procedures and must test negative prior to each study vaccination;
All sexually active males (unless anatomically sterile or in a monogamous relationship with a female partner who uses a documented non-barrier method of birth control) must be willing to use an effective method of contraception (such as consistent condom use) from the day of first vaccination until at least 4 months after the last vaccination ;
Willing to forgo donations of blood, or any other tissues during the study and, for those who test HIV-positive due to vaccine-induced antibodies, until the anti-HIV antibody titers become undetectable;
Women, who are not heterosexually active at screening, must agree to utilize an effective method of contraception if they become hetero-sexually active, as outlined above.
Confirmed HIV-1 or HIV-2 infection; any clinically relevant abnormality on history or examination including history of immunodeficiency or autoimmune disease; use of systemic corticosteroids (the use of topical, nasal or inhaled steroids is permitted), immunosuppressive, anticancer, anti-tuberculosis or other medications considered significant by the investigator within the previous 6 months;
The following exceptions are permitted and will not exclude study participation: use of corticosteroid nasal spray for rhinitis, topical corticosteroids for an acute uncomplicated dermatitis; or a short course (duration of 10 days or less, or a single injection) of corticosteroid for a non-chronic condition (based on investigator clinical judgment) at least 2 weeks prior to enrollment in this study;
Any clinically significant acute or chronic medical condition that is considered progressive or in the opinion of the investigator makes the volunteer unsuitable for participation in the study;
Reported risky behavior for HIV infection within 12 months prior to vaccination
If female, pregnant or planning a pregnancy during the period of enrollment until 4 months after the last study vaccination; or lactating;
Bleeding disorder that was diagnosed by a physician (e.g., clotting factor deficiency, coagulopathy or platelet disorder that requires special precautions) (Note: A volunteer who states that he or she has easy bruising or bleeding, but does not have a formal diagnosis and has had IM vaccine administrations and blood draws without any adverse experience, is eligible);
