This study is being done to assess the possibility of the potential integration of malaria vaccine into the EPI regimen. It will evaluate whether the malaria vaccine is safe and immunogenic in infants aged 6 to 10 weeks at first dose, when co-administered with other EPI vaccine antigens. The Protocol Posting has been updated in order to comply with the FDA Amendment Act, Sep 2007.
Two vaccination schedules will be studied, which constitutes the two alternative three dose regimens for the malaria candidate vaccine 257049 integration into EPI. The co-administered EPI vaccines include GSK Biologicals' Tritanrix™-HepB/Hiberix™, a measles vaccine (depending on the supply availability), Aventis Pasteur's Yellow Fever vaccine Stamaril™ and GSK Biologicals' Oral Polio vaccine Polio Sabin™. Tuberculosis vaccine (Bacillus of Calmette and Guerin, BCG) will be administered according to national medical practice and will not be administered as part of this protocol, but will be documented.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)
A combined vaccine used to prevent MEASLES; MUMPS; and RUBELLA.
A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had mumps or been immunized with live mumps vaccine. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine.
A live attenuated virus vaccine of duck embryo or human diploid cell tissue culture origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of nonpregnant adolescent and adult females of childbearing age who are unimmunized and do not have serum antibodies to rubella. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (Dorland, 28th ed)
