Healthy Volunteers: Pneumococcal Disease Study
If You Are Age 65 or Older, You Have an Increased Risk of Developing Pneumococcal Disease.
Researchers are studying an investigational vaccine that may provide protection against pneumococcal disease in healthy adults age 65 and older. Pneumococcal disease is caused by a type of bacterium that is a major cause of infections that may be in the ears, sinuses, blood, lungs, or brain.
This study will test the effectiveness and safety of an investigational vaccination compared to a vaccine already approved for use.
You may qualify for this study if you are 65 years of age or older and:
- Are in good health
- Have not previously received any pneumococcal vaccine
- Have no history of invasive pneumococcal disease or impairment of immunological function
- Have no hypersensitivity to any component of pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccines, pneumococcal conjugate vaccines, or any diphtheria toxoid-containing vaccines
- Are not currently taking any medicines that lower your body’s immune function, including steroids
The study doctor will review additional criteria with you to determine whether you can participate in the study.
