This is a randomized, parallel dose assigned, double blind, multi center, Phase II study assessing the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity of VLP vaccine (Authentic and Alpha variants) in adults between 18 and 59 years who are healthy or have medically stable chronic diseases and who have no known history of SARS-CoV-2 infection


The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the humoral and cellular immune response of VLP vaccine candidates (harboring M, N, E, and HexaPro S antigens of the virus), as an efficacy criteria.

Approximately 330 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive two doses of 40 mcg VLP vaccine for Wuhan (n=110) or 40 mcg VLP vaccine for Alpha (British) variant (n=110) or 40 mcg VLP vaccine for Wuhan+Alpha variant (n=110) 21 days apart.

The study will be completed in 14 months.

All injections will be done subcutaneously.
