Clinical Trials

RSV Vaccine in Maternal Subjects

Posted on 7/23/2019

This clinical trial is evaluating an investigational vaccine given to healthy pregnant women to see if it may protect their babies against RSV.  The study will also measure the immune system response to the single study injection which contains either the investigational RSV vaccine or placebo (contains no active ingredients).  In addition, the trial will also assess the safety of the investigational product.

You may qualify to participate if you:
  • Are 18 to 49 years of age
  • Are a healthy pregnant woman expecting a healthy baby
  • Will be between 24 and 36 weeks pregnant on the day of your study injection
  • Meet additional requirements as determined by a screening process

The study duration will last about 17 months for you and 12 months for your baby.  You will attend 8 planned study visits and your baby will attend 5 visits.  Some unplanned visits may also be needed.

There will be no charge for participating in the study.  The study injection, study materials and study specific visits will be provided at no charge to you or your insurance company. 

If you qualify and decide to participate you will be compensated for your time and travel while participating in the study.  You will receive $100 for each planned study visit for you and $50 for each planned study visit for your baby.

What Our Research Patients are Saying
Being able to participate in the COPD research study has been a life changing event for me.  This is an ongoing positive experience that has already made major differences in my health and the quality of my life. 
At the initial interview I was met by a team of friendly, caring, extremely knowledgeable and professional staff.  The high level of care and concern extended to me by the research doctor and everyone involved in this research study is phenomenal.  The research coordinator who I’ve been assigned to is simply “The Best”.  She answers and explains every question I have, she listens when I am having problems with my COPD, and offers helpful suggestions to get me through the rough spots.  She cheers me on when I need it most and follows up with phone calls to make certain I’m ok afterwards.
I’m amazed with the positive changes in my health from the first month of my participation. To cough is a rare occurrence where previously it was chronic…all day, every day.   Just walking short distances would render me breathless.  I now can walk longer, do more physically, and breathe much better.  I’m also not so tired all the time.  What a welcome change!
I’m happier, less fearful, and more confident in coping with COPD as a result of this research program.  If my participation can contribute to helping others cope with COPD that would be the absolutely ultimate outcome for me.  Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.
