The purpose of this study is to evaluate the optimal vaccination schedule for a Quadrivalent Meningococcal (A, C, Y and W-135) Tetanus Protein Conjugate Vaccine (TetraMen-T) in order to provide an effective protein conjugate quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine in the population with the highest incidence of disease.
- To describe the safety profile of TetraMen-T vaccine administered at 5 different schedules and concomitantly with routine pediatric vaccinations.
- To describe the immunogenicity profile of TetraMen-T vaccine administered at 5 different schedules and concomitantly with routine pediatric vaccinations.
- To describe the immunogenicity profiles of selected licensed pediatric vaccines (Pentacel, Prevnar, M-M-RII and Varivax) when administered either concomitantly with or without TetraMen-T vaccine.
Participants will receive study vaccinations beginning at age 2, 6, or 12 months, depending on the assigned schedule in their randomized groups. All participants will undergo safety and immunogenicity assessments according to the schedule for their assigned group.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate the non-inferiority of the antibody responses to meningococcal serogroups A, C, W, and Y when MenACYW conjugate vaccine is administered...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to describe the safety and immunogenicity of one or two doses of Menactra® (TetraMenD) administered in children less than 2 years of age. Primary O...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine when used as a single-dose toddler vaccine in individuals who are either meningococcal vaccine naï...
The purpose of the study is to demonstrate the immune lot consistency of the antibody responses to meningococcal serogroups A, C, Y, and W following the administration of a single dose of ...
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...
Immunogenicity and safety of the quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine MenACWY-TT co-administered with a combined diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis vaccine versus their separate administration in adolescents and young adults: A phase III, randomized study.
This study evaluated the immunogenicity and safety of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine using tetanus (T) toxoid as carrier protein (MenACWY-TT) co-administered with combined diphtheria-tet...
Invasive meningococcal disease has its highest incidence in infants. Co-administration of serogroup B (4CMenB) and quadrivalent conjugate (MenACWY-CRM) vaccines could protect against 5 clinically-rele...
Safety and immunogenicity of a pentavalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine containing serogroups A, C, Y, W, and X in healthy adults: a phase 1, single-centre, double-blind, randomised, controlled study.
Invasive meningococcal disease is an important public health problem, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. After introduction of MenAfriVac in 2010, Neisseria meningitidis serogroup A disease has been al...
Given the characteristics of meningococcal carriage and transmission and the sudden, often severe onset and long-term consequences of disease, vaccination can most effectively provide large-scale cont...
Semisynthetic vaccines consisting of polysaccharide antigens from microorganisms attached to protein carrier molecules. The carrier protein is recognized by macrophages and T-cells thus enhancing immunity. Conjugate vaccines induce antibody formation in people not responsive to polysaccharide alone, induce higher levels of antibody, and show a booster response on repeated injection.
A disease caused by tetanospasmin, a powerful protein toxin produced by CLOSTRIDIUM TETANI. Tetanus usually occurs after an acute injury, such as a puncture wound or laceration. Generalized tetanus, the most common form, is characterized by tetanic muscular contractions and hyperreflexia. Localized tetanus presents itself as a mild condition with manifestations restricted to muscles near the wound. It may progress to the generalized form.
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.
An antitoxin used for the treatment of TETANUS.
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 ...
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...
