Clinical Trial VICCBMT1335


A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 3 Trial to Evaluate the Protective Efficacy and Safety of a Therapeutic Vaccine, ASP01113, in Cytomegalovirus (CMV)-Seropositive Recipients Undergoing Allogeneic, Hematopoietic Cell Transplant (HCT)

Principal Investigator(s)

Madan Jagasia


  • Protocol No. VICCBMT1335
  • Open Date: 02/18/2014
  • Staging: Phase III
  • Age Group: Adults
  • Scope: International
  • Objective: To assess the adequacy of the primary endpoint, overall mortality, through one year post-transplant to evaluate the vaccine efficacy of ASP0113 in HCT recipients, and, if necessary, select additional components for an alternative primary composite endpoint.
  • Disease Sites: Leukemia; Lymphoma
  • Therapies: Supportive Care
  • Drugs: ASP0113
  • Participating Institutions: Vanderbilt University
  • National Clinical Trial ID: NCT01877655
  • Secondary Protocol No: 0113-CL-1004


The purpose of the research study is to determine if a vaccine, ASP0113, prevents or reduces cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections and complications resulting from the infection and how safe ASP0113 is in patients who receive a hematopoietic cell transplant. ASP0113 is an investigational vaccine. An investigational vaccine means that it is being tested and is not approved by regulatory authorities. This vaccine is made from manufactured genes that could give protection from the CMV virus.
