The purpose of this study is to evaluate the immunogenicity, safety and reactogenicity of one dose of four different formulations of the MenACWY conjugate vaccine when given to healthy subjects aged 15-19 years. The selection of the best formulation will be based on data obtained up to one month after the vaccine dose.
The study is open. However, the 4 different formulations of GSK's MenACWY conjugate vaccine will be administered in a double-blind manner. Mencevax™ ACWY vaccine will serve as active control. Subjects will receive one vaccine dose only (GSK's MenACWY conjugate vaccine or Mencevax™ ACWY vaccine), and will have 2 blood samples taken, before and one month after vaccination.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

This study is aimed at assessing the safety and immunogenicity of different doses and formulations of a new Novartis Meningococcal B Recombinant Vaccine.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the vaccine called Group B Meningococcal 44/76 MOS NOMV 5D Vaccine is safe and free from side effects and if it will protect people from mening...
The purpose of this study is to determine when a memory immune response after re-vaccination with Meningococcal C conjugate vaccine (Menjugate) or challenge with Meningococcal A/C polysacc...
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of an investigational meningococcal B vaccine in healthy infants.
The study involves the measurement of immune response to vaccination with three doses of a meningococcal B vaccine and a single dose of a meningococcal ACYW conjugate vaccine in healthy ad...
Bacterial meningitis is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among children and adults. Better understanding of the seroepidemiology of meningitis is critical for both the selection an...
In sub Saharan Africa, the epidemiology, including the distribution of serogroups of strains of N. meningitidis is poorly investigated in countries outside "the meningitis belt". This study was conduc...
Antibiotic prophylaxis for contacts of meningitis cases is not recommended during outbreaks in the African meningitis belt. We assessed the effectiveness of single-dose oral ciprofloxacin administered...
The objective of our study was to assess meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) vaccine uptake among men who have sex with men (MSM) during an ongoing, invasive meningococcal disease outbreak in Southern Califo...
Recent serogroup C meningococcal disease outbreaks led to meningococcal vaccine recommendations for Southern California men who have sex with men (MSM). Assessment of vaccine confidence is critical to...
A species of gram-negative, aerobic BACTERIA. It is a commensal and pathogen only of humans, and can be carried asymptomatically in the NASOPHARYNX. When found in cerebrospinal fluid it is the causative agent of cerebrospinal meningitis (MENINGITIS, MENINGOCOCCAL). It is also found in venereal discharges and blood. There are at least 13 serogroups based on antigenic differences in the capsular polysaccharides; the ones causing most meningitis infections being A, B, C, Y, and W-135. Each serogroup can be further classified by serotype, serosubtype, and immunotype.
A fulminant infection of the meninges and subarachnoid fluid by the bacterium NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS, producing diffuse inflammation and peri-meningeal venous thromboses. Clinical manifestations include FEVER, nuchal rigidity, SEIZURES, severe HEADACHE, petechial rash, stupor, focal neurologic deficits, HYDROCEPHALUS, and COMA. The organism is usually transmitted via nasopharyngeal secretions and is a leading cause of meningitis in children and young adults. Organisms from Neisseria meningitidis serogroups A, B, C, Y, and W-135 have been reported to cause meningitis.

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 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 bacterial vaccine for the prevention of brucellosis in man and animal. Brucella abortus vaccine is used for the immunization of cattle, sheep, and goats.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
