Immunogenicity consistency and safety with different production scales of recombinant adenovirus type-5 vectored COVID-19 vaccine in healthy adults: a randomized, double-blinded, immunobridging trial.

Publication date: Jul 13, 2023

The certification of immunogenicity consistency at different production scales is indispensable for the quality control of vaccines. A randomized, double-blind immunobridging trial in healthy adults aged 18-59 was divided into Scale A (50 L and 800 L) and Scale B (50 L and 500 L) based on vaccine manufacturing scales. Eligible participants in Scale A were randomly assigned to receive the single-dose recombinant adenovirus type-5 vectored COVID-19 vaccine (Ad5-nCoV) of different scales at a 1:1 ratio, as was Scale B. The primary endpoint was the geometric mean titer (GMT) of anti-live SARS-CoV-2-specific neutralizing antibodies (NAb) 28 days post-vaccination. 1,012 participants were enrolled, with 253 (25%) per group. The post-vaccination GMTs of NAb were 10. 72 (95% CI: 9. 43, 12. 19) and 13. 23 (11. 64, 15. 03) in Scale A 50 L and 800 L, respectively; 11. 64 (10. 12, 13. 39) and 12. 09 (10. 48, 13. 95) in Scale B 50 L and 500 L, respectively. GMT ratios in Scale A and B have a 95% CI of 0. 67-1. 5. Most adverse reactions were mild or moderate. 17 of 18 participants reported non-vaccination-related serious adverse reactions. The Ad5-nCoV in the scale-up production of 500 L and 800 L showed consistent immunogenicity with the original 50 L production scale, respectively.
