Study Description
Brief Summary:
The aim of this study was to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of the Quinvaxem vaccine (a liquid combination vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus, B. pertussis, hepatitis B and H. influenzae Type B). Healthy Vietnamese infants received three doses of vaccine at 2, 3 and 4 months of age according to the local Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI) schedule

Study Design

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 131 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Assessment of the Immunogenicity and Safety of Quinvaxem Vaccine (DTwP-HepB-Hib) Against Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Hepatitis B and Diseases Caused by H. Influenzae Among Healthy Vietnamese Children
Study Start Date : April 2010
Primary Completion Date : July 2010
Study Completion Date : April 2011


Arms and Interventions

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 2, 3 and 4 months of age



Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunogenicity - Seroprotection (Seroconversion for Pertussis) to Each Vaccine Component [ Time Frame: at 5 months (equivalent to 1 month after the third vaccination) ]
    Assessment of the proportion of subjects who have seroconverted to each of the 5 vaccine components (D, T, P, HepB, Hib)

  2. Immunogenicity - Seroprotection (Seroconversion for Pertussis) to Each Vaccine Component [ Time Frame: at 14 months (equivalent to 12 months after the first vaccination ]
    Assessment of the proportion of subjects who have seroconverted to each of the 5 vaccine components (D, T, P, HepB, Hib)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety: Adverse and Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: From Day 1 up to 30 days after the third vaccination ]
    Assessment of the proportion of children with adverse events and/or serious adverse events following each Quinvaxem vaccine injection
