Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Seroprotection for Anti-Hep Bs, Anti-PRP, Anti-Tetanus, and Anti-Diphtheria Antibodies After Vaccination With Either DTaP-Hep B-PRP~T Concomitantly With OPV or Tritanrix-Hep B/Hib™ Concomitantly With OPV [ Time Frame: 1 month post third vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Seroprotection was assessed by means of radioimmunoassay (RIA) for anti-Hepatitis B (Hep Bs) and anti-PRP antibodies, enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for anti-Tetanus, and serum neutralization (SN) for anti-Diphtheria.

    Seroprotection was defined as titers ≥ 10 mIU/mL for anti-Hep Bs; ≥ 0.15 μg/mL for anti-PRP; ≥ 0.01 IU/mL for anti-Tetanus and anti-Diphtheria at 30 days after the third vaccination.


  • Number of Participants With Observed High Fever During the 7-Day After Vaccination With DTaP-Hep B-PRP~T Concomitantly With OPV or Tritanrix-Hep B/ Hib™ Concomitantly With OPV. [ Time Frame: Day 0 to Day 7 post-vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Occurence of at least one high fever episode (≥ 39.6ºC rectal temperature equivalent) observed within 7 days after any of the three injections.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) of Vaccine Antibodies After Vaccination With Either DTaP-Hep B-PRP-T Concomitantly With OPV or Tritanrix-Hep B/Hib™ Concomitantly With OPV [ Time Frame: 1 month post third vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Immunogenicity was assessed by means of radioimmunoassay (RIA) for anti-Hepatitis B (Hep Bs) and anti-PRP antibodies; enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for anti-Tetanus; serum neutralization (SN) for anti-Diphtheria; and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for anti-Pertusiss (PT) and anti-Filamentous Hemagglutinin (FHA) titers at Day 150, 1 month after the third vaccination.

  • Number of Participants Reporting At Least One Solicited Injection Site Reaction or Systemic Reactions Following Each Vaccination With Either DTaP-Hep B-PRP-T Concomitantly With OPV or Tritanrix-Hep B/Hib™ Concomitantly With OPV [ Time Frame: Day 0 to Day 7 after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Solicited injection site reactions: Pain, Erythema, and Swelling; Solicited systemic reactions; Fever (temperature), Vomiting, Abnormal Crying, Drowsiness, Loss of Appetite, and irritability.

    Grade 3 reactions are defined as: Pain - cries when injected limb is moved; Erythema and Swelling - ≥ 5cm; Fever - rectal temperature ≥ 39.6ºC; Vomiting - ≥6 episodes per 24 hours; Crying - inconsolable crying for >3 hours; Somnolence - sleeping most of the time or difficulty to wake up; Anorexia - refuses ≥3 feeds; and Irritability - inconsolable.
