Research Study Summary
SHINE Study: We're looking for young adults to volunteer a clinical research study exploring new immunization options for meningococcal diseases like meningitis.
Did you know?
Meningococcal germs are the common causes of serious blood infections and meningitis (serious brain infection), which could lead to brain damage, hearing loss, and learning disabilities. The SHINE study was created to find out how a new vaccine for meningococcal disease will work for children, adolescents, and young adults aged 10-25 years.
We're looking for young adults to volunteer a clinical research study exploring new immunization options for meningococcal diseases like meningitis.
Talk to your doctor today about the SHINE study to see if you may be able to join.
Who Can participate in the SHINE study?
You may be able to volunteer for the SHINE study if you:
- Are at least 10 years old but not older than 25
- Are up to date on vaccinations
- Are in good health
Why should I volunteer for this study?
Clinical research is needed to find out if new vaccines work and are safe. All vaccines and medicines have to be researched before they are approved for people to use. Researchers hope that the information learned from this study may help with the development of a new vaccine against meningococcal disease. By participating in this study, you might be protected against some of the germs that cause meningococcal disease.
What will I be asked to do?
Study volunteers will be asked to:
- Receive a one-time injection
- Have blood tests and other study- related medical exams
- You will be asked to answer a short phone survey 6 months after you are vaccinated (you must be reachable by cell phone and/ or landline).
