Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity as measured by serum bactericidal activity of the two vaccines [ Time Frame: at one month after completion of immunization schedule ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability of the two vaccines [ Time Frame: throughout the clinical study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity as measured by serum bactericidal activity of the two vaccines [ Time Frame: at one month after 2 vaccine administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Group I
Novartis rMenB Vaccine without OMV
Biological: Serogroup B meningococcal Vaccine
In this study healthy infants aged 6 to 8 months at time of enrollment were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive 3 doses of Novartis rMenB Vaccine ±OMV at the time of enrollment (6 to 8 months of age), two months later and at 12 months of age. Novartis Meningococcal Recombinant Vaccine +/- OMV is supplied in a pre-filled syringe, 0.5 mL dose.
Experimental: Group II
Novartis rMenB Vaccine with OMV
Biological: Serogroup B meningococcal Vaccine
In this study healthy infants aged 6 to 8 months at time of enrollment were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive 3 doses of Novartis rMenB Vaccine ±OMV at the time of enrollment (6 to 8 months of age), two months later and at 12 months of age. Novartis Meningococcal Recombinant Vaccine +/- OMV is supplied in a pre-filled syringe, 0.5 mL dose.
