- Efficacy of Nexvax2 compared to placebo in reducing Celiac Disease (CeD) associated GI symptoms. [ Time Frame: 79 to 93 days after baseline ]Measured by the CeD Patient Reported Outcome (CeD PRO) between baseline and day of the first masked food challenge (MFC) containing gluten. The CeD PRO captures patient ratings for a number of CeD-associated symptoms, on a 0 to 10 scale, with 0 being absent or no symptoms, and 10 being the most severe symptoms. The Total GI domain score is calculated as an average of summed average and individual symptom scores relevant to the GI tract, to yield a value of 0 to 10.
- Evaluate efficacy of Nexvax 2 compared with placebo on immune-system activation after the first MFC containing gluten. [ Time Frame: 79 to 93 days after baseline ]Differences in levels of pharmacodynamic markers between baseline and day of the first MFC containing gluten.
- Evaluate efficacy of Nexvax2 compared with placebo in reducing CeD associated GI symptom sub-domains. [ Time Frame: 79 to 93 days after baseline ]Differences in daily GI symptom domain score between baseline and day of the first MFC containing gluten.
- Evaluate efficacy of Nexvax2 compared with placebo in reducing individual GI symptoms. [ Time Frame: 79 to 93 days after baseline ]Differences in each of the individual GI item scores in the CeD PRO between baseline and day of the first MFC containing gluten. GI symptoms assessed on the CeD PRO include abdominal cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, gas, loose stool, and nausea. Each are rated on a 0 to 10 scale, where 0 is absent and 10 is the most severe.
- Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) in assessing safety and tolerability of Nexvax2. [ Time Frame: Study Duration: 21 weeks ]Treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs) will be summarized by treatment arm, severity, relationship to study drug and to known or potential gluten exposure, and phase of treatment and presented as the number and percentage of patients reporting an event(s) as well as the number of events reported.
