Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: rMenB+OMV NZ
Subjects who received two doses of rMenB+OMV NZ according to a 0, 2-month schedule
Biological: Meningococcal (group B) multicomponent recombinant adsorbed vaccine
One dose (0.5 mL) vaccine administered by intramuscular (IM) injection in the deltoid area of the non-dominant arm.
Other Name: rMenB+OMV NZ

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Subjects Reporting Unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs). [ Time Frame: From day 1 to day 7 after each vaccination (Vaccination 1: Day 1 to Day 7; Vaccination 2: Day 61 to Day 67) ]
    Safety was assessed as the number of the subjects who reported unsolicited AEs following vaccination.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Number of Adult Volunteers Whose Blood Can be Used as a Reference in Serum Bactericidal Activity (SBA) Test. [ Time Frame: Study day 1 blood sample was drawn between day -5 and day 1. Postvaccination 2 blood sample was drawn between day 23 and day 37 postvaccination 2. ]
    The number of identified healthy adult volunteers with pre and postvaccination blood donations were summarized to establish a control sera panel to be used as a reference in SBA test.
