Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Assess Lot-to-lot Consistency of 3 Lots (Double Blind Design) of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals' 10-valent Pneumococcal Vaccine and Evaluate Non-inferiority to Prevenar™ (Single Blind Design) When Administered as 3-dose Primary Immunization Course Before 6 Months of Age

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lot-to-lot consistency: antibody (Ab) concentrations to pneumococcal serotypes 1, 4, 5, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19F and 23F and to carrier protein PD
  • Non-inferiority of 10-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (pooled data of 3 10-Pn-PD-DiT vaccine groups) w.r.t. Prevenar: all anti-pneumococcal serotypes Ab concentrations>=0.20 µg/mL

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • After each vaccination, occurrence of: solicited local, general symptoms within 4 days; [ Time Frame: After each vaccination ]
  • Unsolicited adverse events within 31 days, SAEs (whole study period)
  • 1m post dose3: For all vaccine pneumococcal serotypes: Opsono titres
  • Antibody (Ab) concentrations >= 0.20 µg/mL
  • Ab concentrations to protein D and seropositivity (S+) status
  • S+/seroprotection status to antigens in DTPa combo vaccine

Estimated Enrollment: 1600
Study Start Date: November 2005
Detailed Description:
Test groups: 4 (400 subjects/group). 3 groups receiving 10-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (3 different lots) as follows: - 10-valent vaccine (lot 1, 2 or 3) + DTPa combined vaccine; Control group receiving Prevenar + DTPa combined vaccine

Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Weeks to 12 Weeks   (Child)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion criteria:

  • Male or female between, and including, 6 and 12 weeks (42-90 days) of age at the time of the first vaccination, free of obvious health problems and with written informed consent obtained from the parent/guardian of the subject.

Exclusion criteria:

  • Use of any investigational or non-registered drug or vaccine other than the study vaccine within 30 days preceeding the first dose of study vaccine, or planned use during the study period.
  • Planned administration/ administration of a licensed vaccine not foreseen by the study protocol during the period starting from one month before the first dose of vaccine(s) and during the entire study period.
