Safety of HIV Vaccine

Safety and Immunogenicity of Ad4-HIV Envelope Vaccine Vectors in Healthy Volunteers

Background: Researchers want see if three new HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) vaccines are safe. Two vaccines are carried by live adenoviruses, which are natural and typically cause cold symptoms or an eye infection. Researchers want to see if all the vaccines help fight HIV and if the adenoviruses are contagious. Objectives: To test the safety and effects of three new HIV vaccines. Eligibility: Healthy adults 18 49 years old (vaccinees) Their household and intimate contacts 18 65 years old Design: Vaccinees will be screened with: Physical exam Medical history Blood and urine tests Questions about HIV risk Vaccinees will learn how to prevent spreading the viruses and about required contraception during the study. Vaccinees will get consent forms for their household and intimate contacts. All contacts must be age 18 65. All intimate contacts must sign a consent form. Contacts will have 4 visits over 8 months for blood tests and a physical exam. All applicable participants will have a pregnancy test at every visit. Vaccinees will have about 9 visits over 12 months. They will repeat screening tests and get: 1 of the 2 adenovirus vaccines sprayed in the nose at 2 visits The booster vaccine by needle in an arm at 1 visit Nasal swabs taken at some visits Vaccinees will note their temperature and symptoms for at least 1 4 weeks after each vaccine. Vaccinees may choose to have: Leukapheresis. Blood will be removed by needle in a vein in one arm. A machine will remove white blood cells. The rest of the blood will be returned into the other arm. Small pieces of the tonsil removed Sponsoring Institute: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
