Study of Menactra® in US Adolescents When Administered Concomitantly With Tdap Vaccine

2014-08-27 03:26:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of the concomitant administration of Menactra® vaccine and Tdap vaccine in adolescents aged 11 to 17 years.

Primary Objective:

To determine whether concomitant administration of two vaccines, Tdap and Menactra®, induces antibody responses that are similar to those observed when each vaccine is given separately.

Secondary Objective:

To compare the rates of injection site reactions at the Tdap injection site after Tdap and Menactra® vaccines are administered concomitantly to the corresponding rates of reactions when Tdap vaccine is administered alone.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The formaldehyde-inactivated toxin of Corynebacterium diphtheriae. It is generally used in mixtures with TETANUS TOXOID and PERTUSSIS VACCINE; (DTP); or with tetanus toxoid alone (DT for pediatric use and Td, which contains 5- to 10-fold less diphtheria toxoid, for other use). Diphtheria toxoid is used for the prevention of diphtheria; DIPHTHERIA ANTITOXIN is for treatment.

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 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.

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.
