Adults Age 60 and Older in Georgia, Maryland and Texas Encouraged to Join Clinical Trial for RSV Prevention Vaccine

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Feb. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Javara, a leading Integrated Research Organization focused on delivering access to clinical trials at the point of care, today announced an opportunity for adults age 60 or older who live in the Fayetteville, Georgia; Annapolis, Maryland; or Fort Worth, Texas areas to participate in a clinical trial of a new investigational vaccine aimed at protecting them from the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). This clinical trial is being launched in partnership with certain Privia Health Group (Nasdaq: PRVA) subsidiaries and affiliates.

Many are aware of RSV as a seasonal illness that affects infants but don't realize that the virus also frequently causes severe acute respiratory illness in older adults. Each year in the U.S., more than 177,000 individuals who are age 65 or over are hospitalized due to RSV, and approximately 14,000 of them die from the virus.1 Furthermore, the treatment of RSV in older adults generates an estimated $3 billion in annual medical costs nationally. Due to these concerns, preventing RSV in older adults is urgently important to public health, yet there is no approved preventive vaccine available.

In the phase 2/3 ConquerRSV clinical trial, the biotechnology company Moderna, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA) is evaluating its investigational mRNA-1345 vaccine for safety and efficacy in preventing the symptoms of RSV in older adults. It is hoped that this investigational vaccine will prepare the immune system first to recognize the virus by identifying the presence of RSV glycoprotein F, and then to fight the virus by generating neutralizing antibodies. Because the investigational vaccine does not use a weakened or inactive form of RSV, mRNA-1345 cannot cause RSV infection.

Javara, along with their healthcare partners, is working to ensure communities and patients have access to cutting edge developments while enabling diverse representation that is much needed as part of the scientific evaluation of this investigational vaccine.

"Second only to the flu when it comes to causing significant respiratory illness in adults,3 RSV represents an often unrecognized yet very real and imminent threat to our older population. Being able to vaccinate against this virus could save lives, prevent hospitalizations, and conserve healthcare resources," said Javara's Chief Operating Officer, Michael Clay. "By taking this opportunity to test an investigational vaccine aimed at preventing RSV, older adults may increase the possibility that they will be protected from the discomforts and dangers of this virus. At the same time, by helping to move this research forward, these trial participants will be doing their part to prevent suffering and save lives around the world."

Privia Health's Chief Clinical Officer Keith Fernandez, MD, commented, "We are proud to offer Privia patients the opportunity to participate in this clinical trial. This new vaccine candidate for RSV has significant potential to improve the health of our aging population and decrease unnecessary costs within our health system — two key components of Privia's mission of offering high-quality, low-cost care to patients."

The ConquerRSV trial will enroll approximately 34,000 participants who are in general good health. Participants will receive either mRNA-1345 or a placebo. Those interested in participating can contact any of the following locations:
