  • Number of Subjects Reporting Unsolicited Adverse Events, Following Vaccination With Two Injections of rMenB+OMV NZ Vaccine Between Day 1 Through Day 91. [ Time Frame: Day 1 to day 91 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of subjects with serious adverse events (SAE), medically attended adverse events and adverse events (AEs) leading to premature withdrawal, following two injections of rMenB+OMV NZ vaccine are reported.
  • Number of Subjects (Who Had Received Two Injections of rMenB+OMV NZ Vaccine in Part I of This Study) Reporting Unsolicited Adverse Events During Safety Follow-up (Part II of the Study). [ Time Frame: Day 92 to day 331 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of subjects (who had received two injections of rMenB + OMV NZ vaccine in the part I of this study) reporting unsolicited AEs during the safety follow-up in part II of the study, are reported. Unsolicited AEs in part two of the study include - AEs considered to be related to blood draw procedure and all SAEs.
All SAEs, AEs that result in a subject's withdrawal from the study and medically attended AEs will be collected throughout the study period (i.e., from ICF signature up to Visit 3, 1 month after last vaccination. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

A Phase 3b Study to Assess the Safety of Novartis Meningococcal B Recombinant Vaccine When Administered in Healthy At-risk Adults
A Phase 3b, Single-Center, Open-label Study to Assess the Safety of Novartis Meningococcal B Recombinant Vaccine When Administered at a 0, 2-Month Schedule in Healthy At-risk Adults

The proposed study will evaluate the safety of the rMenB+OMV NZ in an adult population potentially at risk for meningococcal disease (e.g. lab workers).

In the second part of the study additional blood samples of high responding vaccinated subjects will be collected for the purpose of generating a control serum panel for the human serum bactericidal assay (hSBA) tests.

Phase 3
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
  • Meningococcal Disease
  • Meningococcal Meningitis
Biological: Recombinant meningococcal B + OMV NZ
2 injections 2 months apart
Experimental: rMenB+OMV NZ
Healthy adults (≥18 to ≤65 years), at high risk for meningococcal B disease due to routine occupational exposure to N. Meningitidis cultures (e.g. lab workers), were administered two injections of Recombinant meningococcal B (rMenB) + Outer Membrane Vesicle (OMV NZ) vaccine, 2 months apart, in part I of the study, were enrolled for optional blood draws and safety follow-up in part II of the study.
Intervention: Biological: Recombinant meningococcal B + OMV NZ
