Untreated or repetitive infections with Chlamydia trachomatis frequently result in pelvic inflammatory disease in 1 in 6 women, and approximately half of infants born to mothers with chlamydia will develop congenital infection; such infection is further responsible for 370,000 disability adjusted life years annually.According to study results published in the Lancet Infectious Disease, researchers at the National Institute for Health Research Imperial Clinical Research Facility at Hammersmith Hospital in London have demonstrated immunogenic responses in the first phase 1 human trials of a novel vaccine for the prevention of C trachomatis infection, based on the recombinant protein subunit CTH522 of the bacteria. The researchers included 35 healthy women aged 19 to 45 years who were not pregnant; had no history of chlamydia, gonorrhea, pelvic inflammatory disease other significant gynecologic disease, HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or syphilis; and who agreed to use 2 approved forms of contraception and to refrain from sexual intercourse for the trial period. Participants were randomly assigned in a 3:3:1 ratio to receive either CTH522:CAF01 (CTH522 adjuvanted with CAFO1 liposomes), CTH522:AH (CTH522 adjuvanted with aluminum hydroxide), or placebo, followed by 2 intranasal doses of unadjuanted CTH522 or placebo.
