  Purpose

The study will evaluate the immunogenicity of the Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis and Inactivated Poliovirus Vaccine (DTP-IPV) with concomitant administration of RotaTeq™ (V260) in healthy Japanese infants. The hypothesis to be tested is that the antibody response rates to DTP-IPV with concomitant administration of RotaTeq™ are non-inferior to those with staggered administration of RotaTeq™.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Achieving Seroresponse for Diphtheria Toxin, Tetanus Toxin, Pertussis Filamentous Hemagglutinin (FHA), and Poliovirus Type 1, 2, and 3 [ Time Frame: 4 to 6 weeks after the third dose of DTP-IPV ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participant serum was collected for determination of antibody responses. Threshold levels for seroresponse were the following: Diphtheria Toxin, >=0.1 International Units (IU)/mL; Tetanus Toxin, >=0.01 IU/mL; Pertussis Toxin and Pertussis FHA, >=10 Enzyme Units (EU)/mL; Poliovirus Types 1, 2, and 3, neutralizing antibody (NA) titer >=8.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Reporting an Adverse Event With Incidence >=1% [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after any of the 6 study visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An adverse event is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered study drug and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the study drug is also an adverse event. Adverse events with an incidence >=1% in either treatment group were recorded.

  • Percentage of Participants Reporting an Adverse Event of Special Interest: Fever [ Time Frame: Period 1 (up to 14 days after Visit 1 [V1] or V2), Period 2 (up to 14 days after V3 or V4), Period 3 (up to 14 days after V5 or V6), and Overall (up to 14 days after any visit) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An adverse event is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered study drug and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment.
