Brief Summary:
To compare three formulations of Hib-MenAC vaccines mixed with Tritanrix™-HepB vaccine with that of Tritanrix™-HepB vaccine concomitantly administered with GSK Biologicals’ Hiberix™ vaccine and Tritanrix™-HepB vaccine mixed with Hiberix™ vaccine and concomitantly administered with Wyeth Lederle’s meningococcal C conjugate vaccine (Meningitec™), with respect to antibody response to vaccine antigens (meningococcal serogroups A and C and PRP) after a three-dose primary vaccination course.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. One month after the third dose of the primary vaccination course, measurement of serum bactericidal titers against meningococcal serogroups A and C (SBA-MenA; SBA-MenC) and anti-PRP antibody concentration.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunogenicity: Before the first dose, antibody concentrations or titres against vaccine antigens (MenA, MenC, PRP, pertussis)
  2. One month after the third dose, antibody concentrations or titres against all vaccine antigens
  3. Reactogenicity & safety: after each dose: solicited (d 0-7, local & general) & unsolicited (d 0-30) symptoms
  4. Over the full course of the study: serious adverse events (SAEs)
