lower respiratory tract infection
Accepts healthy volunteers


This randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled Phase 3 study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of maternal immunization with RSVpreF against medically attended lower respiratory tract illness (MA-LRTI) in infants.


This is a Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity of RSVpreF or placebo (1:1 randomization) in infants born to healthy women vaccinated during pregnancy, as well as the safety and immunogenicity in the pregnant women. This will be a global study which will span multiple RSV seasons.

History of severe adverse reaction associated with a vaccine and/or severe allergic reaction (eg, anaphylaxis) to any component of the investigational product or any related vaccine
Current pregnancy resulting from in vitro fertilization
Current pregnancy complications or abnormalities at the time of consent that will increase the risk associated with the participation in and completion of the study, including but not limited to the following
Preeclampsia, eclampsia, or uncontrolled gestational hypertension
Placental abnormality
Polyhydramnios or oligohydramnios
Significant bleeding or blood clotting disorder
Endocrine disorders, including untreated hyperthyroidism or untreated hypothyroidism. This also includes disorders of glucose intolerance (eg, diabetes mellitus type 1 or 2) antedating pregnancy or occurring during pregnancy if uncontrolled at the time of consent
Any signs of premature labor with the current pregnancy or having ongoing intervention (medical/surgical) in the current pregnancy to prevent preterm birth

participation in and completion of the study, including but not limited to the
Previous infant with a known genetic disorder or significant congenital anomaly
Prior preterm delivery ≤34 weeks' gestation
Congenital or acquired immunodeficiency disorder, or rheumatologic disorder or other illness requiring chronic treatment with known immunosuppressant medications, including monoclonal antibodies, within the year prior to enrollment
Other acute or chronic medical or psychiatric condition including recent (within the past year) or active suicidal ideation or behavior or laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk associated with study participation or investigational product administration or may interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the participant inappropriate for entry into this study
Participation in other studies involving investigational drug(s) within 28 days prior to consent and/or during study participation
Major illness of the maternal participant or conditions of the fetus that, in the
investigator's judgment, will substantially increase the risk associated with

the maternal or infant participant's participation in, and completion of, the
study or could preclude the evaluation of the maternal participant's response
