Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects With at Least One >= Grade "2" Fever, Vomiting or Diarrhoea [ Time Frame: During the 8-day solicited follow-up period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Grade 2 fever was defined as axillary temperature > 38.0 to <= 39.0 degrees Celsius and grade 3 fever as axillary temperature > 39.0 degrees Celsius.

    Grade 2 vomiting was defined as 2 episodes of vomiting per day and grade 3 as 3 or more episodes of vomiting per day.

    Grade 2 diarrhoea was defined as 4-5 looser than normal stools per day and grade 3 as 6 or more looser than normal stools a day.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Reporting Each Type of Solicited General Symptoms [ Time Frame: During the 8-day follow-up period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Solicited symptoms included cough, diarrhoea, irritability, loss of appetite, fever (degrees Celsius) and vomiting.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: During the 31-day follow-up period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Unsolicited AEs cover any AE reported in addition to those solicited during the clinical study and any solicited symptom with onset outside the specified period of follow-up for solicited symptoms.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Throughout the study period (Day 0 to Month 3 or 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SAEs assessed include medical occurrences that result in death, is life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, result in disability/incapacity or are a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject
