Indication/ConditionEbola Virus Disease
Since its first outbreak occurred in 1976, Zaire Ebola virus have been associated with 14 outbreaks reported up to 2014. The Zaire Ebola virus in 2014 causing the most serious outbreak was considered to be a new epidemic strain, with GP homology of the gene was only 97.6%, compared to the GP gene of the strain in 1976. This investigational Ad5-EBOV vaccine was developed according to the 2014 epidemic Zaire strain and formulated as freeze-dry products which could be stored at 4℃.
This is a single center, double-blind, placebo control, dose-escalation phase 1 clinical trial. This study will determine the safety and side-effect profile, and immunogenicity of an investigational Ad5-EBOV vaccine.
