Study of Meningococcal B Vaccine and ACWY Conjugate Vaccine in Healthy Adults

2014-08-27 03:19:55 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 adults (Laboratory workers). The study will be completed at the Manchester Medical Microbiology Partnership in the UK and will enrol staff who may be at potential occupational exposure to meningococci. Blood samples will be taken before and after each vaccination and used to determine if the vaccines induce protective responses.

Description

Laboratory staff at the Manchester Medical Microbiology Partnership may be at potential occupational exposure to meningococci. No licensed vaccine is available against serogroup B meningococci and the available plain polysaccharide serogroup ACYW vaccine is poorly immunogenic. Novartis Vaccines have developed an investigational serogroup B vaccine and a conjugated ACYW vaccine. This study will investigate these vaccines ability to induce a protective response in laboratory staff from the Manchester Medical Microbiology Partnership. Three doses of the meningococcal B vaccine will be administered at 0, 2 and 6 months and a single dose will be administered at 0 months. Blood samples will be taken before and after each vaccination and functional antibodies determined.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp689-701; Curr Opin Pediatr 1998 Feb;10(1):13-8)

A pneumococcal vaccine which 7 pneumococcal serotypes (6B, 14, 19F, 23F, 18C, 4, 9V), each conjugated individually to the outer membrane protein complex of NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS.

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.

Infections with bacteria of the species NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS.
