Clinical Trials Related to Rabavert (Rabies Vaccine Flury LEP)

Study of Intradermal Administration of PCEC Rabies Vaccine [Not yet recruiting]

Phase 2 FMP2.1 Trial in Mali [Active, not recruiting]
Malaria is a disease that affects many people in Africa. Malaria is caused by germs that are spread by mosquito bites. The purpose of this study is to compare the number of children who get malaria after receiving an experimental malaria vaccine (FMP2. 1/AS02A) to the number of children who get malaria after receiving a vaccine for rabies (an approved vaccine that does not prevent malaria). The children will be assigned to one of the vaccine groups by chance. Participants and doctors will not know which vaccine was given. Study participants will include 400 children, ages 1-6 years, living in Bandiagara, Mali. Children will receive 3 vaccine doses, by injection, to their upper arm. Study procedures will include physical exams and several blood samples. Participants will be involved in the study for 26 months.
