Key exclusion criteria
- Are pregnant, breast feeding, or plan to become pregnant during the study period.
- Have had treatment with any other investigational therapy within 30 days or within 5 half-lives of that investigational therapy, whichever is longer, prior to Day 1.
- Have had treatment with antibiotics within one month of commencement on trial or expect to require antibiotic treatment during the trial.
- Have a known or suspected defect of the immune system that would prevent an immune response to the vaccine, such as congenital or acquired immunodeficiency, including infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
- Have clinically significant gingivitis or periodontal disease or are undergoing a current treatment plan for these.
- Full or partial dentures, or dental implants.
- Chronic use (more than 14 continuous days) of any medication that may be associated with changes in immune function
- Have clinically significant laboratory values at Screening, as assessed by an investigator.

Brief summary
This study will assess the safety and immune response to GPV381. Participants will be admitted as day patients to the unit and receive a dose of IP on Day 1 and remain in the unit for 4 hours post dose for tests and observations. They will be discharged following assessments and return for an outpatient visit on Day 8. They will be readmitted as a day patient for a second and third dose on Day 28 and Day 56, respectively, and return for outpatient safety assessments on Days 35 and 63, and for longer-term safety and immunogenicity follow up visits on Day 90 and Day 120.
