  • Occurrence of unsolicited AEs [ Time Frame: During the 31-day period (Day 0 to Day 30) following any dose of Synflorix™ and overall ]
  • Occurrence of Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Throughout the PMS study period, starting at Dose 1 (Visit 1) and ending 31 days (Day 0 to Day 30) after the last dose of Synflorix™ for each subject in the PMS study ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: April 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Synflorix™ cohort
Only those subjects to whom Synflorix™ will be administered as per normal clinical practice, according to the locally approved PI, will be included in the study.
Other: Synflorix™ data collection
Safety monitoring and evaluation: recording of all AEs during the study period using diary cards, follow-up visit or telephone contact. Recording of SAEs throughout the study period for each subject.

Detailed Description:

The participating physicians (investigators) will be asked to enrol only those subjects to whom they administer Synflorix™ in the course of their normal clinical practice according to the locally approved Prescribing Information.

Since there is lack of clarity regarding the PMS study requirement (both from Regulatory agency and Ethics Committee), it was decided that GSK will submit Local PSURs on a regular basis as desired by Local regulatory agency. The same is communicated to Regulatory agency and if they want something more they are requested to revert back with specific requirements.
