Brief Summary:
This is a study to show that vaccination with 1 dose of Tritanrix HB+Hib followed by Quinvaxem vaccine as the 2nd and 3rd dose is not inferior to vaccination with Quinvaxem for all 3 doses, with respect to protection against all antibodies (anti-hepatitis B surface antibodies, anti-polyribosyl ribitol phosphate (PRP), anti-diphtheria, anti-tetanus and anti-Bordetella pertussis) 1 month after completion of the 6-10-14 week vaccination course.

Masking: Single (Care Provider)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Phase IV, Single-blind, Randomized, Controlled, Monocentric Study to Assess the Interchangeability of Quinvaxem (DTwP-HepB-Hib) as the 2nd and 3rd Dose After Initial Vaccination With Tritanrix HB+Hib (DTwP-HepB/Hib) With Respect to Safety and Immunogenicity in Healthy Infants at 6, 10 and 14 Weeks of Age
Study Start Date : May 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 2011
Actual Study Completion Date : September 2011


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Quinvaxem Biological: Quinvaxem

A single dose (0.5 mL) of Quinvaxem contains:

diphtheria antitoxin (>= 30 IU), tetanus antitoxin (>= 60 IU), whole-cell inactive pertussis bacteria (>= 4 IU), 10 mcg Hib oligosaccharide conjugate (approx. 25 mcg CRM197), 10 mcg Hepatitis B surface antigen

One dose of Quinvaxem given at Weeks 6, 10 and 14


Active Comparator: Tritanrix Hib/HepB + Quinvaxem Biological: Quinvaxem/Tritanrix

A single dose (0.5 mL) of Quinvaxem contains:

diphtheria antitoxin (>= 30 IU), tetanus antitoxin (>= 60 IU), inactive pertussis bacteria (>= 4 IU), 10 mcg Hib polysaccharide conjugate (approx. 25 mcg tetanus toxoid), 10 mcg Hepatitis B surface antigen

One dose of Quinvaxem given at Weeks 6, 10 and 14





Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Seroprotection Rate: Anti-PRP Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after the third vaccination ]
    Percentage of subjects with an anti-PRP titer ≥0.15 µg/mL (i.e. seroprotection rate)

  2. Seroprotection Rate: Anti-hepatitis B Surface Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after the third vaccination ]
    Percentage of subjects with an anti-hepatitis B surface antibody titer ≥10 IU/L (i.e. seroprotection rate)

  3. Seroprotection Rate: Anti-diphtheria Toxoid Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after the third vaccination ]
    Percentage of subjects with antibody levels against diphtheria toxoid ≥0.1 IU/mL (i.e. seroprotection rate)

  4. Seroprotection Rate: Anti-tetanus Toxoid Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after the third vaccination ]
    Percentage of subjects with antibody levels against tetanus toxoid ≥0.1 IU/mL (i.e. seroprotection rate)

  5. Seroprotection Rate: Anti-B. Pertussis Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after the third vaccination ]
    Percentage of subjects with an anti-B. pertussis antibody titer ≥20 EU/mL or a 4-fold increase over baseline (i.e. seroconversion rate)
