Clinical Trials Related to Rabavert (Rabies Vaccine Flury LEP)

Rabies Immune Plasma Booster Study [Completed]
Rabies immune globulin is a product that is lifesaving to unvaccinated individuals exposed to the rabies virus. Rabies immune globulin is made from plasma from immune donors. Currently the only practical method to obtain this plasma is to immunize normal volunteer Source Plasma donors and collect their plasma while titers are adequate. The use of rabies vaccine for immunization of normal Source Plasma donors is currently limited to a level that, while protective for the individual, is unsuitable for production of rabies immune globulin. The objective of this study is to obtain efficacy and safety data regarding the rabies boostering program to demonstrate that: 1. Rabies immune plasma production can be substantially increased by giving booster doses to previously immunized donors whose titers are below 10. 0 IU/mL. 2. It is safe for normal Source Plasma donors to receive booster doses of rabies vaccine on a regular basis. This study utilizes two rabies vaccines approved by the FDA, Imovax® (Sanofi-Pasteur) and RabAvert® (Novartis).

Phase I Pediatric FMP2.1/AS02A Trial in Mali [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and dosages of a malaria vaccine in 100 children, 1-6 years old, in Bandiagara, Mali. The study is testing the safety of the vaccine when it is given to people who are regularly exposed to malaria and it will provide information regarding optimal vaccine dosage. This study will compare 3 injections of different vaccine doses to a rabies vaccine that is already approved. During the study, the child's health will be checked in the clinic and during home visits. Children may participate for about 14 months, and blood will be taken from each child throughout the study. If the child becomes sick from malaria, he/she will be treated. Information from this study may be used to develop a malaria vaccine that will help control the disease.

Study of Intradermal Administration of PCEC Rabies Vaccine [Completed]

Immunogenicity of Rabies Vaccine for Pre Exposure [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of a two dose versus a three dose schedule and intramuscular versus intradermal injection for pre-exposure prophylaxis.

Phase 1 Trial of a Malaria Vaccine in Young Kenyan Children [Completed]
To assess the safety and reactogenicity of the FMP-1/AS02A malaria vaccine in malaria-exposed children living in western Kenya and aged 12-47 months
