Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Meningococcal serogroup B (MenB) immune response (i.e. at least a 4-fold increase in serum bactericidal activity [SBA] from pre-vaccination titer) at 1 month postvaccination for each MenB strain assayed

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • For each MenB strain assayed, pre and 1m post dose 2 and 3: SBA seropositivity, titer and immune response (post dose 2 only)
  • After each vaccination: grade 3 and any solicited symptoms (Day 0-14), unsolicited symptoms (Day 0-30)
  • Serious adverse events [SAEs] (whole study)

Estimated Enrollment: 450
Study Start Date: July 2002
Detailed Description:

The study is open; however, vaccines given to study group at 0-1-6 months and to control group will be administered in an observer-blind manner. 3 blood samplings for antibody testing: before vaccination and one month after the second and third vaccine doses.
