Descriptive Information
Brief Title † Immunogenicity and Safety of Verorab™ in Indian Population
Official Title † Immunogenicity and Safety of Purified Vero Cell Rabies Vaccine (PVRV, Verorab™) Administered for Rabies Post-exposure Treatment. Comparison of Essen-IM, Zagreb-IM, and Thai Red Cross (TRC)-ID Regimens in the Indian Population.
Brief Summary - To demonstrate that rabies vaccine administered according to the Thai Red Cross, (TRC)-ID regimen (2-2-2-0-1-1) is not inferior to rabies vaccine administered according to the ESSEN IM regimen in terms of Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) at D28, in subjects with a WHO category III rabies exposure,or, - To demonstrate that Rabies vaccine administered according to the ZAGREB-IM regimen (2-1-1) is not inferior to Rabies vaccine administered according to the ESSEN IM regimen in terms of GMTs at D28, in subjects with a WHO category III rabies exposure. Secondary objectives: 1. To describe the immunogenicity profile of each regimen 2. To assess the safety of the vaccine in each group.
