Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish at which day meningococcal C specific B cells are detectable in the blood of healthy infants following first and third immunisation with MenC Conjugate Vaccine as determined by Men C specific B-cell ELISPot assay.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish how long the B cells persist in the blood
  • To note the difference between plasma cell response following the first and third MenC vaccination.
  • To determine the immune response to Neisseria meningitidis serogroup C 26-34 days after the third immunisation
