Clinical Trial Summary

The study is a first-in-human Phase 1/2a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to assess the clinical safety and efficacy of ShigActive in healthy adults with experimental Shigella challenge.


Clinical Trial Description

The purpose of this study is to determine if ShigActive is safe and effective in healthy adults in a continuous Phase 1/2a trial. Phase 1 will asses the safety of ShigActive in healthy adults, while Phase 2a will evaluate the safety and efficacy of ShigActive in healthy adults after a challenge with Shigella. ShigActive is a collection of bacteriophages. Bacteriophages (or phages) are viruses that infect only bacteria. The phages in ShigActive infect a specific type of bacteria called Shigella, which is the causative agent of shigellosis or dysentery. ShigActive is intended to significantly reduce or eliminate Shigella levels in the human gastrointestinal tract, which in turn, is anticipated to reduce the incidence and/or severity of shigellosis. ;
