Viaskin Pertussis Vaccine Trial

Study Purpose

The study is a Phase I, first in human, monocenter study, aiming at assessing the safety and immunogenicity of a genetically detoxified pertussis toxin (PT) when administered via the cutaneous route with Viaskin patches to healthy volunteers at 2 different doses of 25 mcg or 50 mcg PT protein compared to Viaskin placebo. Two cohorts of 30 subjects will be successively enrolled. Safety of the product will be assessed throughout the 10-week study and its immunogenicity will be assessed at regular intervals with collection of blood samples for immunological analyses. Four weeks after the second Viaskin application (at Day 42 of the study), all subjects will receive a dose of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine (Boostrix® dTpa) to ensure the optimal recall of their immunity against pertussis.

Recruitment Criteria

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial Details

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

Trial ID:

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
