Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • antibody response, as measured by ELISA, to N. meningitidis serogroup C at one month following three doses of MenC Conjugate Vaccine administered at 3, 5, 11 months of age, together with a hexavalent vaccine.
  • safety and tolerability

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • antibody response as measured by ELISA at 1 month after second dose of MenC Vaccine and before third dose with hexavalent vaccine
  • antibody response as measured by BCA in subset of subjects in each group, at 1 month after second dose, immediately before the third and at 1 month following the third dose of MenC Vaccine together with a hexavalent vaccine.
