Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with confirmed herpes zoster (HZ).cases [ Time Frame: During the entire study period (up to Month 72). ]

    A suspected case of HZ can be confirmed in two ways:

    • By Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
    • By the HZ Ascertainment Committee (HZAC)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with confirmed herpes zoster (HZ) cases [ Time Frame: 1 month post dose 2 in the previous Z-006/022 studies to study end (Month 72). ]

    A suspected case of HZ can be confirmed in two ways:

    • By Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
    • By the HZ Ascertainment Committee (HZAC)

  2. Number of subjects with confirmed post herpetic neuralgia (PHN) cases [ Time Frame: 1 month post dose 2 in the previous Z-006/022 studies to study end (Month 72). ]
    PHN is defined by the presence of HZ-associated severe 'worst' pain persisting or appearing more than 90 days after onset of the HZ rash.

  3. Number of HZ related complications (other than PHN) [ Time Frame: For the total duration of the Zoster-049 study, i.e. from Month 1 post dose 2 in the previous Z-006/022 studies to study end (Month 72). ]
    HZ complications include: HZ vasculitis, disseminated disease, ophthalmic disease, neurologic disease, visceral disease or stroke.

  4. Anti-glicoprotein E (gE) antibody (Ab) concentrations [ Time Frame: At Months 0, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 and 72 (LTFU Haemagglutination Inhibition(HI) subset, 1-Additional Dose, Revaccination and Control groups), at Month 1 (1-Additional Dose, Revaccination and Control groups), and at Month 3 (Revaccination and Control groups ]
    Anti-gE Ab concentrations were expressed as geometric mean concentrations (GMCs), as determined by ELISA.

  5. Cell mediated immunity (CMI) in terms of frequencies of antigen-specific CD4+ T cells. [ Time Frame: At Months 0, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 and 72 (LTFU CMI subset, 1-Additional Dose, Revaccination and Control groups), at Month 1 (1-Additional Dose, Revaccination and Control groups), and at Month 3 (Revaccination and Control groups). ]
    Frequencies of CD4+ T cells with antigen-specific Interferon gamma (IFN-γ) and/or Interleukin-2 (IL-2) and/or Tumour Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF-α) and/or CD40 Ligand (CD40L) secretion/expression to gE as determined by Intracellular Cytokine Staining (ICS).

  6. Number of subjects with any, and Grade 3 solicited local symptoms [ Time Frame: Within 7 days (Days 0-6) after each vaccination. ]
    These symptoms were assessed in subjects administered with 1 or 2 additional doses of HZ/su vaccine. Assessed solicited local symptoms were pain, redness and swelling. Grade 3 pain = pain that prevented normal activity. Grade 3 redness/swelling = redness/swelling spreading beyond 100 millimeters (mm) of injection site.

  7. Number of subjects with any, Grade 3 and related solicited general symptoms [ Time Frame: Within 7 days (Days 0-6) after each vaccination. ]
    These symptoms were assessed in subjects administered with 1 or 2 additional doses of HZ/su vaccine. Assessed solicited general symptoms were fatigue, fever [defined as oral temperature equal to or above 37.5 degrees Celsius (°C)], gastrointestinal symptoms,headache, myalgia, and shivering.Grade 3 symptom = symptom that prevented normal activity. Grade 3 fever = fever > 39.0 °C. Related = symptom assessed by the investigator as related to the vaccination.

  8. Number of subjects with unsolicited adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: During the 30 days (Days 0-29) after each vaccination. ]
    These symptoms were assessed in subjects administered with 1 or 2 additional doses of HZ/su vaccine. An unsolicited AE covers any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation subject temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product and reported in addition to those solicited during the clinical study and any solicited symptom with onset outside the specified period of follow-up for solicited symptoms. Any was defined as the occurrence of any unsolicited AE regardless of intensity grade or relation to vaccination.

  9. Number of subjects with any Serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From Month 0 to Month 12 (1-Additional Dose and Control groups) and from Month 0 until 12 months after last HZ/su vaccination (Revaccination group). ]
    SAEs assessed include medical occurrences that result in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization or result in disability/incapacity.

  10. Number of subjects with any SAEs related to investigational vaccine, related to study participation or to GSK concomitant medica-tion/vaccine. [ Time Frame: During the entire study (up to Month 72) ]
    SAEs assessed include medical occurrences that result in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization or result in disability/incapacity.

  11. Number of subjects with any and related Potential immune-mediated diseases (pIMDs). [ Time Frame: From Month 0 to Month 12 (1-Additional Dose and Control groups) and from Month until 12 months after last HZ/su vaccination (Revaccination group). ]
    Potential immune-mediated diseases (pIMDs) are a subset of AEs that include autoimmune diseases and other inflammatory and/or neurologic disorders of interest which may or may not have an autoimmune aetiology
