Immunogenicity Study of Antibody Persistence and Booster Effect of PENTAXIM™ at 18 Months in Healthy Argentinean Infants

2014-08-27 03:45:38 | BioPortfolio


This study will assess both the antibody persistence of the investigational vaccine and the immune response and safety of a booster dose of PENTAXIM™ vaccine in 18 months-old toddlers who participated in an earlier study in order to determine if they are still protected before they receive a booster dose of D, T, IPV, pertussis or Hib vaccines and also to assess the quality of the induced immune memory in response to a booster dose of the same vaccine as in the primary series.

Primary Objective:

To describe the antibody persistence at 18 months of age and the booster effect of a dose of PENTAXIM™ on immunogenicity.

Secondary objective:

To describe the safety profile of the booster dose PENTAXIM™ in each vaccine group defined by the vaccines received during the primary series.

Study Design

Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.

A vaccine consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and whole-cell PERTUSSIS VACCINE. The vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough.

Combined vaccines consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and an acellular form of PERTUSSIS VACCINE. At least five different purified antigens of B. pertussis have been used in various combinations in these vaccines.

A suspension of killed Bordetella pertussis organisms, used for immunization against pertussis (WHOOPING COUGH). It is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (DTP). There is an acellular pertussis vaccine prepared from the purified antigenic components of Bordetella pertussis, which causes fewer adverse reactions than whole-cell vaccine and, like the whole-cell vaccine, is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

Vaccines or candidate vaccines containing antigenic polysaccharides from Haemophilus influenzae and designed to prevent infection. The vaccine can contain the polysaccharides alone or more frequently polysaccharides conjugated to carrier molecules. It is also seen as a combined vaccine with diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine.
