Chikungunya Virus Infection
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
This study is a randomized, double-blinded, Phase 1, placebo- controlled, and dose comparison trial to evaluate the safety, immunogenicity and schedule of MV-CHIK. Two dosage levels and 3 immunization schedules will be evaluated. This study will enroll up to 180 healthy subjects aged 18 to 45 years.Study duration is approximately 22 months. Subject participation duration is approximately 8-13 months. The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of 5 x 10^4 TCID50 and 5 x 10^5 TCID50 MV-CHIK and placebo following two consecutive intramuscular injections and to assess the CHIKV serum plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT50) antibody responses to 5 x 10^4 TCID50, 5 x 10^5 TCID50 of MV-CHIK or placebo on day 29 following the first dose.

- Provide written informed consent before initiation of any study procedures.
- Women of childbearing potential must agree to practice adequate contraception during the 30 days prior to Day 1, the first injection, through 85 days after the second study injection. A woman is considered of childbearing potential unless surgically sterile (tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy) or post-menopausal (> /= 1 year) or successful Essure placement (permanent, non-surgical, non-hormonal sterilization) with documented confirmation test at least 3 months after the procedure. Acceptable birth control methods include but are not limited to: abstinence from sexual intercourse with men; monogamous relationship with a vasectomized partner; double-barrier methods (condoms, diaphragms, spermicides; and intrauterine devices); and licensed hormonal methods.

Subjects may be on chronic or as needed (prn) medications if, in the opinion of the site principal investigator or appropriate sub-investigator, they pose no additional risk to subject safety or assessment of reactogenicity and immunogenicity. NOTE: Athletically trained subjects with a pulse > \= 45 - 49 may be enrolled if an ECG shows no evidence of first, second or third degree heart block.
- Screening laboratory values must be within site normal limits, though trace urine protein is acceptable. Screening labs will include: Blood hemoglobin, White blood cell (WBC) count, Absolute neutrophil count, Platelets, Creatinine, Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST), Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Bilirubin (total), Glucose (random, must be less than 140), Urine dipstick for protein and glucose (negative to trace protein are acceptable), Negative HIV 1/2 antibody/antigen test, Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody NOTE: Creatinine values lower than the normal range may be acceptable if the PI or a designated licensed clinician determines that these laboratory findings are not clinically significant. HIV and hepatitis C viral load PCR testing may be performed for individuals suspected of having indeterminate antibody/antigen testing (Sites will use the standard HIV testing protocol for their institution).

(Examples of countries with local chikungunya virus transmission include, but are not limited to, countries in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, the Indian and Pacific Ocean). Residence in or travel to Central and South America, the Caribbean, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin islands, if prior to 2013, will be permitted.
- Plan to travel to a location known to have local CHIKV transmission during the course of the study or history of travel to one of these countries within 30 days prior to screening. Travel to Florida will be permitted. Those planning travel to Florida will be provided information on mosquito bite protection.
- Body temperature >/ =100 °F (>/ =37.8°C) or acute illness within 3 days before study injection days (subject may be rescheduled).
- A positive serum or urine pregnancy test at screening or within 24 hours prior to study injection, women who are planning to become pregnant, or women who are breastfeeding. If female of childbearing potential as defined in Inclusion Criterion 3. From 30 days prior to entering the study until 85 days after the final study injection.
- Any clinically significant acute or chronic medical condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, would preclude participation. E.g., History of seizure disorders (other than febrile seizures as an infant), autoimmune disease, immunodeficiency, any spleen disease, active malignancy, active asthma, known cardiac disease, pulmonary disease, liver disease, renal disease, unstable or progressive neurological disorders, diabetes mellitus, and transplant recipients.

This study is a randomized, double-blinded, Phase 1, placebo- controlled, and dose comparison trial to evaluate the safety, immunogenicity and schedule of MV-CHIK. Two dosage levels (5 x 10^4 or 5 x 10^5 TCID50) and 3 immunization schedules (days 1 and 29, days 1 and 85 or days 1 and 169) will be evaluated. The study will have 6 cohorts, each with 30 subjects, 25 of whom will receive study vaccine and 5 of whom will receive placebo. Cohorts 1-3 will receive the low dosage of the lyophilized vaccine product (5 x 10^4 TCID50) and cohorts 4-6 will receive the high dosage (5 x 10^5 TCID50) of the lyophilized vaccine product. Each subject will receive two study injections using one of the three dosing schedules outlined above. This study will enroll up to 180 healthy subjects aged 18 to 45 years (inclusive). Subjects will be counseled on the study and will then sign an informed consent prior to any study procedures. Screening will be performed which will include evaluation of medical history, travel history to countries with known CHIKV circulation, medication history, a physical examination and safety laboratory evaluations. Study duration is approximately 22 months. Subject participation duration is approximately 8-13 months. The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of 5 x 10^4 TCID50 and 5 x 10^5 TCID50 MV-CHIK and placebo following two consecutive intramuscular injections and to assess the CHIKV serum plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT50) antibody responses to 5 x 10^4 TCID50, 5 x 10^5 TCID50 of MV-CHIK or placebo on day 29 following the first dose. The secondary objectives are to assess the CHIKV serum plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT50) antibody responses to 5 x 10^4 TCID50, 5 x 10^5 TCID50 MV-CHIK and or placebo using three dose schedules (days 1 and 29, days 1 and 85, or days 1 and 169) on day 29 following the second dose, assess CHIKV serum PRNT50 antibody responses to 5 x 10^4 TCID50, 5 x 10^5 TCID50 MV-CHIK or placebo on days 15, 85 and 169 following the second dose of vaccine, assess the CHIKV serum ELISA antibody responses to 5 x 10^4 TCID50, 5 x 10^5 TCID50 MV-CHIK or placebo on day 29 following the first dose of vaccine and days 15, 29, 85 and 169 following the second dose of vaccine, and to assess the durability of CHIKV serum ELISA and PRNT50 antibody responses to 5 x 10^4 TCID50, 5 x 10^5 TCID50 MV-CHIK or placebo on day 85 (Groups 2+5) and day 169 (Groups 3+6) following the first dose of vaccine.
