Detailed Description:

There will be two cohorts in the study: Cohort 1 (children aged 2-4 years) and Cohort 2 (infants aged 8-10 weeks).

Before evaluating the two formulations of GSK Biologicals' pneumococcal vaccine 2189242A in infants (Cohort 2), safety and reactogenicity of the highest dose formulation of the vaccine will be evaluated in children aged 2 to 4 years (Cohort 1). Prevenar 13TM will be used as a control.

In the second step of the study, the two formulations of 2189242A will be tested in infants (Cohort 2). Both formulations of GSK Biologicals' pneumococcal vaccine 2189242A will be evaluated according to the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) schedule i.e. a 2, 3, 4 months vaccination schedule, using licensed SynflorixTM and Prevenar 13 TM vaccines as comparators. The higher dose formulation of GSK Biologicals' pneumococcal vaccine 2189242A will be also evaluated according to the 2, 4, 9 months vaccination schedule using licensed SynflorixTM vaccine as comparator.

The study in infants will also assess the immune responses to routine vaccines when co-administered with the candidate pneumococcal vaccine, using licensed SynflorixTM and Prevenar 13™ vaccines as comparators.
