Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Endpoints : Safety/immunogenicity.Immunogenicity of GSK Biologicals' HRV vaccine in terms of anti-rotavirus IgA antibody seroconversion at Visit 6 in the group receiving of HRV vaccine concomitantly with OPV versus placebo group.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity of GSK Biologicals' HRV vaccine in terms of anti-rotavirus IgA antibody seroconversion, vaccine take, and rotavirus shedding at Visit 6 in each group; Immunogenicity of OPV at Visit 6 in each group; Reactogenicity and safety in each group.

Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: June 2005
Detailed Description:
"The study will have four groups: Group HRV + OPV, Group HRV alone, Group Placebo + OPV and Group Placebo alone. Two-dose immunisation will be administered in healthy infants at approximately 12 and 16 weeks of age. Immunogenicity, reactogenicity and safety relative to the placebo will also be evaluated. Treatment allocation: randomized (2:2:1:1). Routine EPI vaccines should be administered during the study following the EPI recommendation in Bangladesh."

Ages Eligible for Study:   5 Weeks to 7 Weeks   (Child)

Inclusion criteria:

  • Healthy infants aged 6 weeks±1 at first study vaccination.

Exclusion criteria:
