occurrence of Severe Rotavirus Gastroenteritis
time frame: Up to 2 years of age of participants
time frame: Until completion of 2 years age of participant
All participants from 6 weeks up to 8 weeks old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Healthy infants as established by medical history and clinical examination before entering the study. - Age: 6-8 weeks at the time of enrollment. - Parental ability and willingness to provide informed consent. - Parent who intends to remain in the area with the child during the study period. Exclusion Criteria: - Presence of diarrhea or vomiting in the previous 72 hours or on the day of enrollment (temporary exclusion) - Presence of fever on the day of enrollment (temporary exclusion). - Acute disease at the time of enrollment (temporary exclusion) - Concurrent participation in another clinical trial throughout the entire timeframe for this study. - Presence of significant malnutrition (weight-for-height z-score <-3SD median) or any systemic disorder (cardiovascular, pulmonary, hepatic, renal, gastrointestinal, hematological, endocrine, immunological, dermatological, neurological, cancer or autoimmune disease) as determined by medical history and/or physical examination which would compromise the subject's health or is likely to result in nonconformance to the protocol. History of congenital abdominal disorders, intussusception or abdominal surgery - Known or suspected impairment of immunological function based on medical history and physical examination. - Household contact with an immunosuppressed individual or pregnant woman. - Prior receipt of rotavirus vaccine. - A known sensitivity or allergy to any components of the study vaccine. - Major congenital or genetic defect. - History of persistent diarrhea (defined as diarrhea more than 14 days). - Participant's parents not able, available or willing to accept active weekly follow-up by the study staff. - Has received any immunoglobulin therapy and/or blood products since birth or planned administration during the study period. - History of chronic administration (defined as more than 14 days) of immunosuppressants including corticosteroids. Infants on inhaled or topical steroids may be permitted to participate in the study. - History of any neurologic disorders or seizures. - Any medical condition in the parents/infant which, in the judgment of the investigator, would interfere with or serves as a contraindication to protocol adherence or a participant's parents' ability to give informed consent.
|Official title||Phase III, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Live Attenuated Bovine-Human Rotavirus Reassortant Pentavalent Vaccine (BRV-PV) Against Severe Rotavirus Gastroenteritis in Healthy Indian Infants|
|Description||The hypothesis is that a three dose series of BRV-PV administered orally to healthy Indian infants, with the initial dose given at 6-8 weeks of age and followed by vaccinations at monthly intervals, will significantly reduce the incidence of severe rotavirus gastroenteritis (SRVGE). Duration of follow-up is until aged 2 years of each enrolled child. The study is powered to detect vaccine efficacy significantly greater than 10% (95% confidence interval lower bound > 10%) if the true vaccine efficacy is 50% or higher.|
