The purpose of this study is to document the immunological response to the investigational hexavalent vaccine at the 6, 10, and 14 weeks schedule

The primary objective is to demonstrate that the hexavalent DTaP-IPV-HB-PRP~T combined vaccine does not induce lower immune responses than CombAct-HIB® with Engerix B® Paediatric and OPV in terms of seroprotection rates to D, T, polio, HB, and PRP, one month after a 3-dose primary series (6, 10, and 14 weeks) with no HB vaccination at birth.

The secondary Objectives are:

To describe the safety in terms of any adverse events in the first 28 days after each injection and any serious adverse events during the entire trial.

To describe Immunogenicity after the primary series and prior to and after a booster vaccination.
