    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading viral cause of severe lower respiratory tract disease in infants and young children worldwide. In industrialized countries, nearly all children have been infected with RSV by 2 years of age. Most infected children present with mild upper respiratory tract symptoms, but a subset develops severe lower respiratory tract disease characterized by tachypnea, hyperinflation, crackles, and expiratory wheezing (i.e., bronchiolitis and pneumonia).

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine the efficacy of maternal immunization with the RSV F vaccine against medically-significant RSV lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) with EITHER hypoxemia (peripheral oxygen saturation [SpO2] < 95% at sea level or < 92% at altitudes > 1800 meters) OR tachypnea (≥ 70 bpm for infants 0 to 59 days of age or ≥ 60 bpm for infants ≥ 60 days of age) through the first 90 days of life in infants of maternal RSV F vaccinees as compared to placebo recipients. In the event that efficacy is shown through the first 90 days of life, a hierarchical sequence of hypothesis tests will be carried out to examine efficacy at 120, 150, and 180 days of life.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To determine the efficacy of maternal immunization with the RSV F vaccine in reducing the incidence of: RSV LRTI with severe hypoxemia (SpO2 < 92% at sea level or < 87% at altitudes > 1800 meters) or the need for high flow nasal cannula or mechanical ventilatory support, RSV LRTI leading to hospitalization, and resulting in death, through the first 90 days of life in infants of maternal RSV F vaccinees as compared to placebo recipients; to determine the efficacy of maternal immunization with the RSV F vaccine in reducing the incidence of all RSV LRTI through the first 90 days of life in infants of maternal RSV F vaccinees as compared to placebo recipients; to determine the efficacy of maternal immunization with the RSV F vaccine in reducing the incidence of healthcare interventions associated with wheezing through the first year of life in infants of maternal RSV F vaccinees as compared to placebo recipients.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1) ≥ 18 and ≤ 40 years-of-age (which connotes a lower limit of 18 years and 0 days and an upper limit of 40 years and 0 days).
    2) Singleton pregnancy of 28 to 360/7 weeks gestation on the day of planned vaccination. Documentation of gestational age will be based on one of the following composite criteria:
    (a) Gestational Age Dating Based on First Trimester Data (data obtained ≤ 136/7 weeks):
    (b) Gestational Age Dating Based on Early Second Trimester Data (data obtained 140/7 to 216/7 weeks):
    (c) Gestational Age Dating Based on Later Second Trimester Data (data obtained 220/7 to 276/7 weeks)
    (d) Gestational Age Dating When the LMP is Uncertain or Unknown AND No Prior First or Second Trimester Ultrasound Has Been Performed: An ultrasound performed at screening, within the second trimester (≤ 276/7 weeks) will be used to establish the gestational age.
    3) Documentation of a second or third (between 180/7 weeks and prior to randomization) trimester ultrasound with no major fetal anomalies identified.
    4) Good general maternal health as demonstrated by:
    o Medical history (including history of clinically significant adverse reactions to prior vaccines and allergies).
    o Physical examination including at least vital signs (blood pressure, pulse, respirations, and axillary body temperature); weight; height; examination of the HEENT, cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal (abdominal), musculoskeletal, lymphatic, and dermatologic organ systems; and documentation of fetal heart tones. Note that abnormal vital signs may be repeated at the investigator's discretion since these measures may be labile. Vital signs should be assessed in the context of normal values for the third trimester of pregnancy (see the Study Operations Manual).
    o Clinical laboratory parameters that include:
    o For the first year of study conduct in any country, normal/clinically insignificant blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), total
    bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase (ALP), hemoglobin, white blood count, and platelet count. Note that normal ranges for clinical laboratory parameters will be based on reference ranges appropriate for the third trimester of pregnancy, specified in the toxicity grading scale (TGS, provided in the Study Operations Manual) and should be referenced to assess for any abnormalities. This testing should be performed by the central laboratory.
    o For all subjects, serologic exclusion of infection with hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) viruses, syphilis and HIV as documented by testing (performed at the central or local laboratory) at screening or by medical records during the current pregnancy.
    5) Able to understand, and both willing and physically able to comply with study procedures. This includes anticipation of reasonable geographic proximity to the study clinic and adequate transportation to comply with scheduled and unscheduled study follow-up visits.
    6) Able and willing to provide written informed consent for themselves and infant.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1) Symptomatic cardiac or pulmonary disease requiring chronic drug therapy, including hypertension and asthma. Asthma is exclusionary if the subject is receiving chronic systemic glucocorticoids at any dose or inhaled glucocorticoids at any dose > 500 μg per day of beclomethasone or fluticasone, or > 800 μg per day of budesonide.
    2) Pregnancy complications (in the current pregnancy) such as preterm labor, hypertension (blood pressure [BP] > 140/90 in the presence of proteinuria or BP > 150/100 with or without proteinuria) or currently on an antihypertensive therapy or pre-eclampsia; or evidence of intrauterine growth restriction.
    3) Grade 2 or higher clinical laboratory or vital sign abnormality. Exclusion of subjects with grade 1 abnormalities will be based on the subject's prior medical history and the investigator's clinical judgment that the abnormality is indicative of a meaningful physiologic event.
    4) Receipt of any licensed vaccine (e.g., Tdap, inactivated influenza vaccine) within 14 days of study vaccination.
    5) Received any RSV vaccine at any time.
    6) Body mass index (BMI) of ≥ 40, at the time of the screening visit.

    18) Documentation that the infant will be a ward of the state or be released for adoption.
    19) History/presence of deep venous thrombosis or thromboembolism, or the use of anticoagulants during pregnancy (use of low-dose aspirin as prophylaxis [e.g., for the prevention of morbidity and mortality from preeclampsia] is acceptable in dosages consistent with local standards
    of care).
    20) Red blood cell allo-immunization.
    21) Prior stillbirth or neonatal death, or multiple (≥ 3) spontaneous abortions.
    22) Prior preterm delivery ≤ 34 weeks gestation or having ongoing intervention (medical/surgical) in current pregnancy to prevent preterm birth.
