These regions cover 1/3 of the global population with the highest dengue incidence rate.

Additional institutions received license agreements including Butantan Institute in Brazil and Merck in North America and Europe.  

Indication

TetraVax-DV-TV003 is indicated to protect against infection with a controlled human infection strain of either DENV-2 or DENV-3 in adults 18 to 50 years of age with no history of previous flavivirus infection.

Dosage

TetraVax-DV-TV003 will be administered by subcutaneous injection in the deltoid region of the upper arm

Clinical Trials

Clinical Trial NCT03416036Evaluation of the Efficacy of the Live Attenuated Tetravalent Dengue Vaccine Against DENV-2 and DENV-3 Challenge (Completed)

  • This Phase 1 study will evaluate the ability of a single dose of a live attenuated recombinant tetravalent dengue vaccine (TetraVax-DV-TV003, referred to as TV003) to protect against infection with a controlled human infection strain of either DENV-2 (rDEN2Δ30-7169) or DENV-3 (rDEN3Δ30) in adults 18 to 50 years of age with no history of previous flavivirus infection.
  • Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either TV003 or placebo at study entry (Day 0) and either rDEN2Δ30-7169 or rDEN3Δ30 on Day 28.
  • Study visits will occur on Days 0, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 21, 28, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 49, 56, 84, 118, and 208. Visits may include a physical examination and blood collection.

Clinical Trial NCT03485144: A Phase II Randomized, Double-blinded, Placebo-controlled Clinical Study to Evaluate the Immunogenicity and Safety of TetraVax-DV in Healthy Adults in Taiwan

  • The goal of this Phase 2 study is to determine the immunogenicity and safety of TV003(TetraVax-DV), a live attenuated tetravalent dengue vaccine candidate, in healthy human subjects in Taiwan
