Trial record 12 of 85 for:    "Rubella"

Serological Study in Children 12 to 23 Months Vaccinated With MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella)

This study has been completed.

On a previous study conducted in Brazil. The MMR vaccine from 2 different producers had a mumps seroconversion much lower (71%) than the expected 95%, according to the package insert. This could indicate that a substantial proportion of children was not protected after MMR dose.

Condition Intervention
Biological: MMR (Mumps, Measles and Rubella)

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Serological Study of Measles, Mumps and Rubella in Children 12 to 23 Months Vaccinated With MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) in Health Centers Where a Phase III Study Should be Conducted

Further study details as provided by The Immunobiological Technology Institute (Bio-Manguinhos) / Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunoresponse after first dose [ Time Frame: 42 days ]
    Assess the immunoresponse for measles, mumps and rubella after vaccination with MMR in children 12-23 months and 29 days old, in the routine of National Immunization Program (NIP) in health units in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunoresponse after revaccination [ Time Frame: 42 days ]
    To evaluate the immunoresponse after revaccination of children who did not seroconvert for any of the three components of the vaccine.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Whole blood

Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Biological: MMR (Mumps, Measles and Rubella)
    MMR (Mumps, Measles and Rubella)
Detailed Description:
Given the above and considering: (1) future clinical study with the MMR vaccine produced entirely in Bio-Manguinhos/Fiocruz from technology transfer from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), (2) the importance to the National Immunization Program (NIP) to provide the population a MMR vaccine to ensure high protection against mumps, similar to what occurs with measles and rubella components, it was considered essential to conduct a preliminary immunogenicity assessment of the MMR vaccine produced by BioManguinhos.
