Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The study will be conducted in 2 parts:

• Part 1 will enroll approximately 90 healthy adult volunteers 18 to 22 years of age, inclusive in two escalating dose levels of Tdap-1018. 45 participants will be enrolled into each of the groups:
- Group A (Tdap 1018, 1500mcg n=30; Boostrix n=15)
- Group B (Tdap-1018, 3000 mcg n=30; Boostrix n=15)
• Part 2 will enroll healthy adolescent volunteers 10 to 17 years of age, inclusive. Part 2 will consist of approximately 48 participants in 2 escalating dose levels of Tdap-1018 (Group C: 1500 mcg; Group D: 3000 mcg) with approximately 24 participants (Tdap 1018 n = 16; Boostrix n = 8) in each group.

A Safety Monitoring Committee (SMC) will oversee the dose escalation. Enrollment of adolescent participants will be initiated after 12 vaccine recipients in Part 1, Group B have completed week 4 and a preliminary safety assessment is completed by the SMC.

All adult and adolescent participants will receive 1 dose of their assigned treatment. All participants will undergo assessments of safety and immunogenicity. Participants will be followed for safety for 12 weeks after the study injection.
All participants will have a pre-vaccination blood draw and receive the assigned treatment vaccine at Day 1. Blood draws for measuring post-vaccination antibody levels and exploratory evaluations will be done at Week 4. Safety assessments will be done at Weeks 4 and 12.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 325299 0
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of Tdap-1018.
This is a composite primary outcome where each component is assessed by monitoring the following parameters:
1. Incidence of local and systemic post-injection reactions (PIRs)
2. Incidence of serious adverse events (SAEs)
3. Incidence of adverse events (AEs) leading to treatment discontinuation PIRs, AEs and SAEs will be graded based on the United States Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Guidance for Industry: Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) Toxicity Grading Scale for Healthy Adult and Adolescent Volunteers Enrolled in Preventive Vaccine Clinical Trials.
In clinical monitoring will be done for 48 hours for any adverse events, after that telephonic follow up will be done. These will be monitored through telephone follow-up, participant self-report via online or paper diary and in-center clinical monitoring by study nurse.
Timepoint [1] 325299 0
The primary outcome parameters like AEs, SAEs will be monitored through Day 1 to week 12 or End of Study/Early Discontinuation.
Assessment of PIRs will be collected for a minimum of 30 minutes following the study injection at the clinical site , and during the 7-day (Days 1-7) follow-up period after vaccination.
Secondary outcome [1] 387441 0
To assess the immunogenicity to pertussis of Tdap-1018 compared with Boostrix 4 weeks after a booster vaccination
Timepoint [1] 387441 0
This is a composite secondary outcome. Each component is assessed by obtaining blood samples at the following timepoints:
1) Geometric mean concentration (GMC) of antibodies to each of the pertussis antigens:
anti-pertussis toxin (anti-PT), anti- filamentous hemagglutinin (anti-FHA), and anti-pertactin (anti-PRN) at Day 1 and Day 29 (Week 4).
2) Booster response rates for antibodies to pertussis antigens (inactivated pertussis toxin [PT], filamentous hemagglutinin [FHA], and pertactin [PRN]) at Day 1 and Day 29 (Week 4).
3) Ratio of GMCs of antibodies to pertussis antigens comparing Tdap 1018 with Boostrix at Day 1 and Day 29 (Week 4).
4. Geometric mean fold increase of anti-PT, anti-FHA, and anti-PRN at Day 1 and Day 29 (Week 4).
Secondary outcome [2] 387442 0
To assess the immunogenicity to tetanus and diphtheria for Tdap-1018 compared with Boostrix 4 weeks after a booster vaccination
Timepoint [2] 387442 0
This is a composite secondary outcome. Each component is assessed by obtaining blood samples for corresponding parameters at the following timepoints:
1) Booster response rates for anti-tetanus (anti-T) and anti-diphtheria (anti D) antibodies at Day 1 and Day 29.
2) Percentage of participants with (anti-T) antibodies greater than or equal to 0.1 IU/mL at Day 1 and Day 29.
3) Percentage of participants with anti-T antibodies greater than or equal to 1.0 IU/mL at Day 1 and Day 29.
4) Percentage of participants with (anti-D) antibodies greater than or equal to 0.1 IU/mL at Day 1 and Day 29.
5) Percentage of participants with anti-D antibodies greater than or equal to 1.0 IU/mL at Day 1 and Day 29.
6) GMCs of anti-T and anti-D antibodies at Day 1 and Day 29.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of the study is to determine what dose of Tdap-1018, a vaccine intended for booster immunization against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis in individuals 10 to 22 years of age is optimum for use.
The study will enroll healthy adolescent and adult volunteers aged between 10 and 22 years. The total duration of the study will be approximately 16 weeks.
Study details:
The study will be conducted in 2 parts:
• Part 1 will enroll approximately 90 healthy adult participants 18 to 22 years of age, inclusive. Part 1 has two groups evaluating two dose levels of Tdap-1018.
• Part 2 will enroll approximately 48 healthy adolescent participants 10 to 17 years of age, inclusive. Part 2 will also have two groups for evaluating two dose levels of Dtap-1018.
All participants will receive 1 dose of their assigned treatment (Tdap 1018 Dose 1, Tdap-1018 Dose 2, or Boostrix). All participants will undergo assessments of safety and immunogenicity. Participants will be followed for safety for 12 weeks after the study injection.
All participants will have a pre-vaccination blood draw and receive the assigned treatment vaccine at Day 1. Blood draws for measuring post-vaccination antibody levels and exploratory evaluations will be done at Week 4. Safety assessments will be done at Weeks 4 and 12.
It is perhaps intended that this study will determine the dose of Tdap-1018 vaccine intended for active booster immunization against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis.
