What is the drug being tested?

The study vaccine is a protein (GBS-NN) that stimulates the immune system to recognise similar proteins from a bacteria known as Group B Strep, or GBS for short.  During the study the vaccine or placebo will be administered by injection into the muscle at the top of your arm. The study vaccine or placebo will be administered with and without an ingredient called Alhydrogel®.  Alhydrogel® is a known vaccine ingredient which can improve the immune response to a vaccine and is found in many vaccines currently on the market.  Alhydrogel® contains a small amount of aluminium.
