About

This is a safety and Immunogenicity first-in-human dose-ranging study of self-amplifying RNA Seasonal Influenza Vaccine (ARCT-2138) in adults.

Full description

Phase 1, first-in-human, randomized, controlled, observer blind, dose-escalation study, to assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of different dose levels of the ARCT-2138 vaccine, administered as a single dose to healthy young and older adults, in comparison with an inactivated influenza vaccine. Study drug (ARCT-2138 or control) will be administered as an intramuscular (IM) injection. The study comprises of three parts. In Part 1, escalating dose levels of ARCT-2138 given as a single injection to younger adults will be evaluated sequentially. Low, medium, and high dose levels of ARCT-2138 (as recommended by DSMB) will be further evaluated in younger adults in Part 2. Part 3 will evaluate low, medium, and high dose levels of ARCT-2138 (as recommended by DSMB) in older adults. Investigational Vaccine: ARCT-2138 Control Vaccines: licensed influenza vaccines (inactivated) For younger adults: Flucelvax® Quad, Seqirus Pty Ltd. For older adults: Fluad® Quad, Seqirus Pty Ltd.

Inclusion criteria

  1. Individuals are male, female, or transgender adults 18 to 49 years of age or 65 to 85 years of age.
  2. Healthy participants or participants with pre-existing stable medical conditions. Pre-existing stable medical condition means a subject who: has full capacity of daily activity and no major medication modification; has not undergone surgical or minimally invasive intervention or had any hospitalization/emergency room visit for the specific medical condition within 3 months prior to Day 1.
  3. Participant or legally authorized representatives must freely provide documented informed consent prior to study procedures being performed.
  4. Individuals who have not received influenza vaccine within 6 months prior to enrollment.
  5. Individuals must agree to comply with all study visits and procedures (including blood tests, nasopharyngeal swabs, diary completion, receipt of telephone calls from the site, willingness to be available for Unscheduled Clinic Visits).
  6. Individuals of childbearing potential must be willing to adhere to contraceptive requirements.

Exclusion criteria

  1. Individuals with acute medical illness or febrile illness, including body temperature >100.4°F (>38.0°C) within 3 days prior to Randomization. These individuals may be offered the opportunity to enter the study after fever and illness has stabilized. Participants with suspected or confirmed influenza should be excluded and referred for medical care. Rescreening will be permitted for individuals who are presented with suspected influenza if another diagnosis is confirmed.
  2. Individuals with any medical, neurological, or psychiatric condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, could place the participant at an unacceptable risk of injury or render the participant unable to comply with all study procedures and achieve successful completion of the trial.
  3. Individuals with a known history of severe hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, or other significant adverse reactions to any mRNA vaccine, influenza vaccine, or excipients.
  4. Individuals who have a positive pregnancy test at the Screening visit or Day 1 or who intend to become pregnant or breastfeed during the study.
  5. Individuals with a history of myocarditis, pericarditis, myopericarditis or cardiomyopathy.
  6. Individuals with a history of Guillain-Barré syndrome, encephalomyelitis, or transverse myelitis.
  7. Individuals with a known bleeding disorder that would, in the opinion of the investigator, contraindicate intramuscular (I.M.) injection.
  8. Individuals with a history of congenital or acquired immunodeficiency.
  9. Individuals who have received immunomodulatory, immunostimulatory, or immunosuppressant drugs including interferon and cytotoxic drugs within 3 months of Screening/Day 1 or who plan to receive them during the study.
  10. Individuals requiring systemic corticosteroids exceeding 10 mg/day of prednisone equivalent for ≥10 days within 30 days of Screening. The use of topical, ophthalmic, inhaled, and intranasal steroid preparations will be permitted.
  11. Individuals who have received immunoglobulins and/or any blood or blood products within the 3 months before the first vaccine administration or plan to receive such products at any time during the study.
  12. Individuals with an immunosuppressive or immunodeficient state, asplenia, or recurrent severe infections.
  13. Individuals with a documented history of chronic infection including HIV, HBV, HCV, or who are currently known to have active tuberculosis.
  14. Individuals with chronic illness that, in the opinion of the Investigator, are at a stage where it might interfere with trial participation or interpretation of study results.
  15. Individuals receiving treatment with another investigational drug, biological agent, or device within 28 days of screening, or 5 half-lives of the investigational drug, whichever is longer; or are currently enrolled in or plan to participate in another clinical trial with an investigational agent during the study period.
  16. Individuals who received any influenza vaccine within 6 months prior to enrollment or plan to receive an influenza vaccine during the study period.
  17. Individuals who have received any other licensed vaccines within 14 days prior to enrollment in this study or who are planning to receive any vaccine up to 14 days after the study vaccination.
  18. Individuals who are investigator site staff members, employees of the Sponsor or the Clinical Research Organization directly involved in the conduct of the study, or site staff members otherwise supervised by the investigator or immediate family members of any of the previously mentioned individuals.
