Exclusion Criteria
The factors, or reasons, that prevent a person from participating in a clinical study.
Show details

  • Phase 1 only: Individuals with a history of autoimmune disease or an active autoimmune disease requiring therapeutic intervention.

  • Bleeding diathesis or condition associated with prolonged bleeding that would, in the opinion of the investigator, contraindicate intramuscular injection.

  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Previous vaccination with any coronavirus vaccine.

  • Individuals who receive treatment with immunosuppressive therapy, including cytotoxic agents or systemic corticosteroids, eg, for cancer or an autoimmune disease, or planned receipt throughout the study.

  • Phase 1 only: Regular receipt of inhaled/nebulized corticosteroids.

  • Receipt of blood/plasma products or immunoglobulin, from 60 days before study intervention administration or planned receipt throughout the study.

  • Participation in other studies involving study intervention within 28 days prior to study entry and/or during study participation.

  • Previous participation in other studies involving study intervention containing lipid nanoparticles.

  • Phase 1 only: Positive serological test for SARS-CoV-2 IgM and/or IgG antibodies at the screening visit.

  • Phase 1 only: Any screening hematology and/or blood chemistry laboratory value that meets the definition of a ≥ Grade 1 abnormality.

  • Phase 1 only: Positive test for HIV, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis B core antibodies (HBc Abs), or hepatitis C virus antibodies (HCV Abs) at the screening visit.

  • Phase 1 only: SARS-CoV-2 NAAT-positive nasal swab within 24 hours before receipt of study intervention.

Brief Title  ICMJE Study to Describe the Safety, Tolerability, Immunogenicity, and Efficacy of RNA Vaccine Candidates Against COVID-19 in Healthy Individuals
Official Title  ICMJE A PHASE 1/2/3, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED, RANDOMIZED, OBSERVER-BLIND, DOSE-FINDING STUDY TO EVALUATE THE SAFETY, TOLERABILITY, IMMUNOGENICITY, AND EFFICACY OF SARS-COV-2 RNA VACCINE CANDIDATES AGAINST COVID-19 IN HEALTHY INDIVIDUALS
Brief Summary

This is a Phase 1/2/3, randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blind, dose-finding, vaccine candidate-selection, and efficacy study in healthy individuals.

The study consists of 2 parts: Phase 1: to identify preferred vaccine candidate(s) and dose level(s); Phase 2/3: an expanded cohort and efficacy part.

The study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of 2 different SARS CoV 2 RNA vaccine candidates against COVID 19 and the efficacy of 1 candidate:

  • As a 2-dose (separated by 21 days) schedule;
  • At various different dose levels in Phase 1;
  • In 3 age groups (Phase 1: 18 to 55 years of age, 65 to 85 years of age; Phase 2/3: ?12 years of age [stratified as 12-15, 16-55 or >55 years of age]).

The candidate selected for evaluation in Phase 2/3 is BNT162b2 (mid-dose).

Participants ?16 years of age who originally received placebo will be offered the opportunity to receive BNT162b2 at defined points as part of the study.
