In order to reduce the amount of thiomersal in its vaccines, GSK Biologicals has developed a DTPw-HBV vaccine with low thiomersal content (Tritanrix™- HepB low thio). This vaccine is to be used in combination with a Hib low dose vaccine containing 2.5µg of PRP antigen (Hib 2.5). The purpose of this study is to generate clinical data with Tritanrix™-HepB low thio vaccine when extemporaneously mixed with Hib 2.5 vaccine. The control group will receive Tritanrix™-HepB/Hiberix™.
Subjects received primary vaccination in study 208108/091 (double blind). Of these subjects 50% were randomised to participate in the PRP challenge study (208108/092) (open), and all subjects will be invited to participate in a booster study DTPWHBV=HIB2.5-093 (101477).
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Prevention

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.
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 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 vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one ...
