The Study:

  • Chikungunya virus is an arthropod-borne alphavirus of the family Togaviridae. In 1952 to 1953 the first outbreak was reported in Tanzania, this disease has been endemic in Africa and parts of Asia with transmission to humans occurring through Aedes aegypti and more recently via Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. Although mosquitoes are the primary mode of transmission of CHIKV, blood-borne transmission via needle stick is possible. CHIKV will cause high fever, rash, gastrointestinal complications, headache, muscle pain, nausea, fatigue, myalgia, and joint pain. This is a phase 3 randomized, placebo-controlled trial with four treatment groups. Each subject will be randomized within three age categories (ages 12 to <18, 18 to <46, and 46 to <65) to receive one of three consecutively manufactured lots of PXVX0317 or placebo.

 

Qualified Participants:

  • Be 12 years to <65 years of age.
  • Generally healthy, in the opinion of the investigator, based on medical history, physical examination, and screening laboratory assessments.

 

 

If Qualified and you participate you will receive:

  • All study-related medical exams, lab tests, investigational medication or placebo at no cost.
  • Compensation for time and travel.
