NCT00894686
First received: April 30, 2009
Last updated: July 11, 2012
Last verified: July 2012
  Purpose

The main purpose of this study is to assess the seropersistence of TBE virus antibodies in children, adolescents and young adults who received the first booster vaccination with either FSME-IMMUN 0.25 mL Junior or FSME-IMMUN 0.5 mL in precursor Study 700401.


Condition Intervention Phase
Encephalitis, Tick-Borne
Biological: FSME-IMMUN 0.25 mL Junior (1.2 µg TBE antigen/0.25 mL) or FSME-IMMUN 0.5 mL (2.4µg TBE antigen/0.5 mL)
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Open-label Phase 4 Study to Investigate the Seropersistence of Tick-Borne Encephalitis (TBE) Virus Antibodies After the First Booster Vaccination and the Response to a Second Booster Vaccination With FSME-IMMUN in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults (Follow-Up to Study 700401)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Seropositivity rate after the first booster vaccination administered in Study 700401 and after the second booster vaccination administered in this study [ Time Frame: At yearly intervals from approximately 3 years (38 months) to 10 years (118 months) after the first booster vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 160
Study Start Date: May 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: All subjects
Assessment of seropersistence of TBE antibodies at yearly intervals from approximately 3 years (38 months) to 10 years (118 months) after the first booster vaccination (in Study 700401), as well as antibody response to a second booster vaccination with either FSME-IMMUN 0.25 mL Junior or FSME-IMMUN 0.5 mL, depending on the subject´s age. Timing of the second booster vaccination will depend on the level of serum TBE antibodies detected at the defined assessment time points. Subjects who are not protected against TBE for an entire further season (NT titer <= 20 and/or ELISA value < 126 VIE U/mL) will be invited to receive the second booster vaccination at either the 40, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, or 120-month time point.
Biological: FSME-IMMUN 0.25 mL Junior (1.2 µg TBE antigen/0.25 mL) or FSME-IMMUN 0.5 mL (2.4µg TBE antigen/0.5 mL)
Dosage form: solution/suspension; injectable. Dosage frequency: once. Mode of administration: intramuscular.
