Read our disclaimer for details.
The primary purpose of this study is to demonstrate the lot-to-lot consistency of 3 production lots of GSK Biologicals' Hib-MenAC (Haemophilus influenzae type b and meningococcal serogroups A and C) vaccine when reconstituted with Tritanrix™-HepB (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and hepatitis B) vaccine and administered as a single injection.
Condition or disease
TetanusHepatitis BHaemophilus Influenzae Type bWhole Cell PertussisDiphtheria
Biological: Hib-MenAC mixed with Tritanrix™-HepB
The study is double blind. However the active control vaccine Tritanrix™-HepB/Hiberix™ will be administered in a single-blind manner. Blood samples will be collected for immunogenicity analyses. GSK Biologicals' OPV vaccine will be administered concomitantly with the study vaccines at 2, 4 and 6 months of age according to local country regulation. The study will last approximately 5 months per subject
Demonstrate Lot-to-lot Consistency of Final Production Method of GSK Biologicals' Hib-MenAC Vaccine Mixed Extemporaneously With Tritanrix™-HepB & Demonstrate Its Non-inferiority vs Tritanrix™-HepB/Hiberix™ in Healthy Infants at 2, 4 and 6 Months
