Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the immunological response and tolerance of 3 vaccine strategies against meningococcus B, a potentially fatal invasive infection.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Splenectomy Biological: Trumenba® Biological: Bexsero® Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Currently, in France, no immunogenicity data on Meningococal B vaccines, neither with Bexsero® nor with Trumenba®, are available in asplenic patients, population at high risk of infection.

As asplenic individuals (all causes) show less optimal immune response to conjugate meningococcal C vaccine compared to matched controls. [4], we hypothesize that a similar less optimal response may be expected for MenB vaccines among asplenic subjects. .

That is why, we proposed in this study to evaluate two reinforced strategies with 3 administrations (M0, M1, and M6) of Bexsero® or Trumenba ®. Moreover, the study will also allow exploring the persistence of the immune response in this population. Indeed, few data are available on this persistence in the general population.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of responders defined as participants with seroconversion [ Time Frame: One month after the completeness of three anti-meningococci B vaccine strategies (at M7 for all arms) in asplenic adults. ]
    Proportion of responders defined as participants with seroconversion (i.e. hSBA titer increases from <4 before vaccination to at least 4) or with hSBA titer showing a 4-fold increase (if hSBA titer was at least 4 before vaccination) one month after the completeness of three anti-meningococci B vaccine strategies (at M7 for all arms) in asplenic adults.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunogenicity [ Time Frame: one month after the completeness of each vaccine strategy ]

    Immunogenicity at M2/M7, i.e. one month after the completeness of each vaccine strategy:

    • Serum bactericidal antibody (hSBA) Geometric Mean Titer (GMT).
    • Proportion of responding participants using the conservative threshold of 8.
    • Proportion of participants achieving an hSBA titer equal to or greater than the lower limit of quantification of the assay.

  2. Persistence of immunogenicity [ Time Frame: At M12 M24, M36 and M48 ]

    Persistence of immunogenicity at M12 M24, M36 and M48 for each vaccine strategy

    • Serum bactericidal antibody (hSBA), GMT.
    • Proportion of responding participants using the conservative threshold of 8.
    • Proportion of participants achieving an SBA titre equal to or greater than the lower limit of quantification of the assay.

  3. Modeling of the determinants of immunogenicity [ Time Frame: during the trial ]
    Modeling of the determinants of immunogenicity: reason for splenectomy, age, gender, immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory agent

  4. Any event or serious adverse event [ Time Frame: 7 days following each vaccination. ]
    Any event or serious adverse event during the trial possibly or not related to vaccine immunization.

  5. safety and effectiveness [ Time Frame: through study completion ]
    To assess safety and effectiveness of Bexsero® and Trumenba® in asplenic adults older than 65 years of age.
