Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Prevalence of N. meningitis in CSF samples [ Time Frame: At enrollment (Day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Serogroup of N. meningitis positive samples [ Time Frame: At enrollment (Day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Further characterization of N. meningitidis using Multi Locus Sequence Typing [ Time Frame: At enrollment (Day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Prevalence of Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae in CSF samples as causes of bacterial meningitis [ Time Frame: At enrollment (Day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Serotype of Streptococcus pneumoniae positive samples [ Time Frame: At enrollment (Day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Further classification of Haemophilus influenzae positive samples into Type B and non-B Types [ Time Frame: At enrollment (Day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Total number of subjects with suspected bacterial meningitis (according to diagnostic criteria used by each participating hospital to identify this condition) [ Time Frame: At enrollment (Day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) sample (collected as part of routine practice)


Enrollment: 521

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Study cohort

Other: Data collection
Collection of demographic data and vaccination history
Other: CSF samples testing
CSF samples will be tested for the determination of N. meningitidis and other likely bacterial pathogens that cause bacterial meningitis (S. pneumoniae and H. influenzae)
