Complement 2: Blood donations to develop vaccines against infectious diseases Age group – 18 to 70

 

The Oxford Vaccine Group is carrying out a research study to identify healthy adults between 18 and 70 years of age that are suitable as complement donors to support the evaluation of new vaccines against infectious diseases.

Infectious diseases account for several million deaths worldwide each year. Vaccines stimulate our immune system to protect us from infectious diseases. If a person comes into contact with an infectious disease against which they have been vaccinated (or “immunised”), their body will be able to recognise and fight the disease.

Investigating a new Vaccine Against Meningitis B in Oxford VAMBOX

You are invited to take part in a study to investigate a new Vaccine Against Meningitis B in Oxford (VAMBOX). The study is being run by the Oxford Vaccine Group at the University of Oxford.

If you are 18 to 50 yrs old and are in good health, then you may be eligible to take part in the study. We will provide reimbursement for your time, inconvenience and travel. Participants will receive up to £630.00 if they remain in the study for the entire period. The total study participation time is 12 months.

Background

Persistence of the immune response after immunisation with Ebola virus vaccines (PRISM Study)

The Oxford Vaccine Group is inviting participants of the ‘Evaluating Optimal Vaccine Schedules against Ebola’ (EVOLVE) vaccine study to take part in a study looking at the persistence of immunity induced by the vaccines administered in that study (Ad26.ZEBOV and MVA-BN-Filo).
