"The purpose of this study is to compare the immune response, safety and reactogenicity of Tritanrix™-HepB/Hib-MenAC vaccine given either with or without a birth dose of hepatitis B vaccine to Tritanrix™-HepB/Hiberix™ when given to healthy infants (born to mothers who do not carry hepatitis B virus) at 6, 10 & 14 weeks of age. This study will also include a small group of infants born to mothers who do carry hepatitis B virus; these infants will receive a birth dose of hepatitis B vaccine and will be vaccinated with Tritanrix™ HepB/Hib-MenAC at 6, 10 & 14 weeks age."

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity: One month post-dose 3, measurement of serum bactericidal titers against meningococcal serogroups A & C (SBA-MenA; SBA-MenC), anti-PRP, anti-HBs & anti-diphtheria concentrations; & in some subjects anti-tetanus & anti-BPT concentrations.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reactogenicity and safety: After each vaccination, solicited (day 0-3, local & general) & unsolicited (day 0-30) symptoms. Over the full course of the study: serious adverse events (SAEs)

Estimated Enrollment: 996
Study Start Date: May 2004
Intervention Details:
    Biological: DTPw-HBV/Hib-MenAC conjugate vaccine
    Other Name: DTPw-HBV/Hib-MenAC conjugate vaccine
Detailed Description:

"Randomized study with three groups (subjects born to mothers who do not carry hepatitis B virus) to receive one of the following vaccination regimens: - GSK Biologicals' Tritanrix™-HepB/Hib-MenAC and hepatitis B vaccine at birth

- GSK Biologicals' Tritanrix™-HepB/Hib-MenAC and no hepatitis B vaccine at birth - GSK Biologicals' Tritanrix™-HepB/Hiberix™ There will also be a fourth group (subjects born to mothers who do carry hepatitis B virus) to receive: - GSK Biologicals' Tritanrix™-HepB/Hib-MenAC and hepatitis B vaccine at birth "
