Safety and High Level Efficacy of the Combination Malaria Vaccine Regimen of RTS,S/AS01B With Chimpanzee Adenovirus 63 and Modified Vaccinia Ankara Vectored Vaccines Expressing ME-TRAP

Background. The need for a highly efficacious vaccine against Plasmodium falciparum remains pressing. In this controlled human malaria infection (CHMI) study, we assessed the safety, efficacy and immunogenicity of a schedule combining 2 distinct vaccine types in a staggered immunization regimen: one inducing high-titer antibodies to circumsporozoite protein (RTS,S/AS01B) and the ...

Reporting characteristics of non-primary publications of results of randomized trials: a cross-sectional review

Other aspects of a randomized trial’s findings (that is, non-primary results) are often reported in subsequent publications. Methods We carried out a cross-sectional review of the characteristics and ...
