  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of the concomitant administration of Menactra® vaccine and DAPTACEL® vaccine.

The main objectives are:

Immunogenicity:

To evaluate the antibody responses to both vaccines when Menactra vaccine is given concomitantly with DAPTACEL® compared to when either vaccine is given alone.

Safety:

To evaluate the rate of local and systemic reactions when DAPTACEL® and Menactra vaccines are administered concomitantly compared to when each vaccine is given alone.

Official Title: Immunogenicity and Safety of Meningococcal (Serogroups A, C, Y and W-135) Polysaccharide Diphtheria Toxoid Conjugate Vaccine (Menactra®) in Children Aged 4 to 6 Years in the US When Administered Concomitantly With a Fifth Dose Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Antibodies Against Diphtheria and Tetanus at ≥ 1.0 IU/mL After DAPTACEL Vaccination [ Time Frame: Day 30 post-vaccination (Visit 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum antibody titers were assessed for diphtheria by a seroneutralization assay and for tetanus by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay.

  • Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) of Antibodies Against Meningococcal Serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135 After Menactra Vaccination at Visit 1. [ Time Frame: Day 30 post-vaccination (Visit 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum antibody titers against meningococcal serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135 were assessed by serum bactericidal assay using human complement (SBA HC)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Geometric Mean Concentrations (GMCs) of Antibodies Against the Pertussis Antigens After DAPTACEL Vaccination at Visit 1 [ Time Frame: Day 30 post-vaccination 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum antibody titers against pertussis were assessed for pertussis toxoid (PT), filamentous hemagglutinin (FHA), Fimbriae types 2 and 3 (FIM), and pertactin (RN) by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

  • Serum Bactericidal Assay Using Human Complement Geometric Mean Titers for Serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135 After Menactra Vaccination [ Time Frame: Day 30 post-vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum antibody titers against meningococcal serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135 were assessed by serum bactericidal assay using human complement (SBA HC)

  • Number of Participants Reporting Fever When DAPTACEL and Menactra Vaccines Were Administered Concomitantly and Those Reporting When DAPTACEL Was Administered With IPOL Vaccine [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 7 post-vaccination at Visit 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Fever was defined as a maximum oral temperature of ≥ 100.4ºF.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Healthy, as determined by medical history and physical examination.
  • Aged 4 to < 7 years at the time of study vaccination on Day 0.
  • Informed consent form that has been approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and signed/dated by the parent or legal guardian.
  • Previous documented vaccination history of 4th dose diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis (DTaP) series.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Serious chronic disease (e.g. cardiac, renal, neurologic, metabolic, rheumatologic, psychiatric, hematologic)
  • Known or suspected impairment of immunologic function
  • Acute medical illness with or without fever within the last 72 hours or temperature ≥ 100.4°F (≥ 38°C) at the time of enrollment
  • History of documented invasive meningococcal disease or previous meningococcal vaccination
  • Received a 5th dose vaccination with any tetanus, diphtheria or pertussis vaccine, or 4th dose of IPV prior to this study.
  • Received either immune globulin or other blood products within the last 3 months; or received injected or oral corticosteroids, or other immunomodulator therapy, within 6 weeks of the study vaccines. Individuals on a tapering dose schedule of oral steroids lasting < 7 days and individuals (e.g., asthmatics) on a short schedule of oral steroids lasting 3 to 4 days may be included in the trial as long as they have not received more than one course within the last 2 weeks prior to enrollment.
  • Received oral or injected antibiotic therapy within the 72 hours prior to any blood draw.

  • Unavailable for the entire study period, or unable to attend the scheduled visits or to comply with the study procedures.
  • Enrolled in another clinical trial.
  • Diagnosed with any condition, which, in the opinion of the physician investigator, would pose a health risk to the subject or interfere with the evaluation of the vaccine.
  • Received any other vaccine 30 days prior to the first study vaccination or scheduled to receive any vaccination during the course of the study.
  • Personal or family history of Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
