Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 1 m after the 3rd dose of primary vaccination: SBA-MenC titre ≥ 1:8 (seroprotection status), anti-PRP concentration ≥ 0.15 µg/ml. 42 d after the booster vaccination: SBA-MenC titre ≥ 1:128, anti-PRP concentration ≥ 1 μg/ml [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Antibody levels to all vaccine antigens:1 m post dose 3, prior to & 42 d post booster. After each dose: Solicited (d 0-3, local & general), unsolicited (d 0-30) & MMR specific (d 0-42) symptoms. SAEs (whole study). [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

This multicenter study is open with respect to the treatment allocation, but double-blind with respect to the Hib-MenC-TT lots (3 lots). The study will be conducted in two stages. Primary vaccination phase: 3 doses Hib-MenC-TT with Infanrix™-IPV or for the control group a licensed Men-C vaccine with Pediacel™ at 2, 3, 4 months of age; Booster/persistence phase: 1 dose Hib-MenC with Priorix™. 4 blood samples of 3.5ml (5ml for the UK subset) are collected (Study Months 0 & 3, prior to & 42 days after the booster).
