BACKGROUND A candidate tetravalent dengue vaccine is being assessed in three clinical trials involving more than 35,000 children between the ages of 2 and 16 years in Asian-Pacific and Latin American countries. We report the results of long-term follow-up interim analyses and integrated efficacy analyses. METHODS We are assessing the incidence of(More)
BACKGROUND. Sanofi Pasteur has developed a tetravalent dengue vaccine (TDV) against the world's most common arbovirus infection. METHODS. We assessed the safety and immunogenicity of the TDV in healthy adults randomized into 2 groups. Group 1 received 3 TDV injections at months 0, 4, and 12-15; group 2 received saline placebo at month 0 and then 2 TDV(More)
A randomized double-blind Phase I Trial was conducted to evaluate safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of a yellow fever (YF)-dengue 2 (DEN2) chimera (ChimeriVax-DEN2) in comparison to that of YF vaccine (YF-VAX). Forty-two healthy YF naïve adults randomly received a single dose of either ChimeriVax-DEN2 (high dose, 5 log plaque forming units [PFU] or(More)
A dengue vaccine effective against all four serotypes is urgently needed. However, safety and immunogenicity could be affected by prior exposure to flaviviruses. This open, controlled, phase IIa study was conducted in 35 healthy adults who had received monovalent, live attenuated Vero cell-derived dengue vaccine against dengue virus 1 (VDV1) or 2 (VDV2) or(More)
UNLABELLED Several ChimeriVax-Dengue (CYD)-based vaccination strategies were investigated as potential alternatives to vaccination with tetravalent CYD vaccine (CYD-TDV) in this phase IIa trial conducted in 2008-9 in 150 healthy adults. Participants were randomized and vaccinated on D0 and D105 (± 15 days). One group received bivalent CYD vaccine against(More)
Propafenone, a class I antiarrhythmic agent, inhibits several membrane currents (I(Na), I(Ca), I(K), Ito), however, its effects on ATP-sensitive potassium current (I(K)ATP) of cardiac cells have not been tested. We evaluated the blocking effects of 0.1 to 100 microM propafenone applications at 35 degrees C on the whole-cell I(K)ATP as triggered by(More)
Dengue fever, caused by four serotypes of a mosquito-borne virus, is a growing problem in tropical countries. Currently, there is no treatment or vaccine. We evaluated safety and immunogenicity of two doses, given six months apart, of seven formulations of dengue tetravalent live-attenuated vaccine (containing different concentrations of the component(More)
We conducted a Phase 1b study to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of two live attenuated tetravalent dengue vaccines in healthy adult volunteers. After one injection, all subjects reported systemic reactions consistent with a mild dengue-like syndrome. Seven volunteers developed dengue 3 viraemia after vaccination. All subjects developed a(More)
Three independent, phase 1 clinical trials were conducted in Australia and in USA to assess the safety and immunogenicity of sanofi pasteur dengue vaccine candidates. In this context, Dengue 1-4 and Yellow Fever 17D-204 (YF 17D)-specific CD4 and CD8 cellular responses induced by tetravalent chimeric dengue vaccines (CYD) were analyzed in flavivirus-naive or(More)
OBJECTIVE The safety and immunogenicity of tetravalent live-attenuated dengue vaccines after a three dose vaccination series were evaluated in Thai children. METHOD One hundred three healthy flavivirus-seronegative schoolchildren ages 5 to 12 years were randomized to receive either dengue vaccine containing 3, 2, 1 and 2 log10 of the 50% cell culture(More)
