on 7/5/21 we started enrolling for the intradermal Japanese Encephalitis trial
We are seeking 50 participants who are 18-45 years of age. We will give each participant a 1/5 dose – a microdose as it were – of the registered Japanese Encephalitis (JE) Vaccine to determine if this will be equally effective at encouraging antibodies to JE. There will be three blood tests: at enrollment and then after one and two months. More info is at the clinic website on this link.
