Immunogenicity and Safety of a DTPa-HBV-IPV/Hib Vaccine Given at 2, 3 and 4 Months of Age
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to show that the immunogenicity of newly formulated DTPa-HBV-IPV/Hib vaccine is as good as the immunogenicity of the currently licensed formulation of the vaccine. The vaccine will be administered as a primary vaccination course to healthy infants at 2, 3 and 4 months of age and its safety and reactogenicity will also be assessed.
