About The Lyme Disease Vaccine Study
Lyme disease is a common illness caused by a bacteria found in ticks. Bites from infected ticks can transfer the bacteria to humans and cause rashes, fever, and fatigue. If left untreated, Lyme disease can progress to cause severe, sometimes permanent symptoms. Currently, there are no approved vaccines available to prevent Lyme disease.
The VALOR research study is evaluating if an investigational (study) vaccine is safe and effective for preventing Lyme disease in people who have been exposed through tick bites.
Joining a clinical trial is an important and personal decision for you and your family. We hope it is one you will consider.
Who Can Participate
Healthy adults and children 5 years of age or older who live in or often visit outdoor areas that may expose them to ticks may be eligible to participate. Study participants cannot have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease within 3 months of enrollment.
Activities that may increase the risk of Lyme Disease include:
