BACKGROUND This phase II study evaluated the immunogenicity and reactogenicity of primary vaccination with a novel Hib-MenC conjugate vaccine (GlaxoSmithKline [GSK] Biologicals) coadministered with DTPa-HBV-IPV (GSK Biologicals) at 2, 4 and 6 months. METHODS Healthy infants were randomized to receive Hib-MenC coadministered with DTPa-HBV-IPV (N = 117) or(More)
Safety, reactogenicity and immunogenicity of GSK Biologicals' hexavalent DTPa-HBV-IPV/Hib vaccine (Infanrix)hexa) was assessed when used for primary vaccination at 3, 4 and 5 months of age (N = 2163), compared to the separate administration of DTPa-IPV/Hib and HBV vaccines (N = 720). A similar safety and reactogenicity profile was demonstrated for both(More)
BACKGROUND This phase I/II partially blinded, randomized, dose-ranging study assessed the safety and immunogenicity of a novel human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) vaccine candidate consisting of a recombinant fusion protein (F4) containing 4 HIV-1 clade B antigens (Gag p24, Pol reverse transcriptase, Nef, and Gag p17) adjuvanted with AS01 in(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the concurrent use of meningococcal C tetanus conjugate (MenC-TT) vaccine (NeisVac-C) with DTaP-based combinations, according to 2 vaccination schedules, one of which included hepatitis B vaccination at birth (Trial DTaP-HBV-IPV/Hib-097). METHODS Healthy infants were randomized to receive either DTaP-HBV-IPV/Hib (Infanrix(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) vaccine candidate F4/AS01 has previously been shown to induce potent and persistent polyfunctional CD4(+) T-cell responses in HIV-1-seronegative volunteers. This placebo-controlled study evaluated two doses of F4/AS01 1-month apart in antiretroviral treatment (ART)-experienced and ART-naïve HIV-1-infected(More)
After a birth dose of acellular pertussis (aP) and diphtheria (DT)aP-hepatitis B virus (HBV)-inactivated polio vaccine (IPV)/Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib) at 2, 4, and 6 months, a booster dose of DTaP-HBV-IPV/Hib at 12 to 23 months induced strong anti-pertussis booster responses. Thus, neonatal aP priming did not lead to immune tolerance to pertussis(More)
Intracellular cytokine staining (ICS) assay is increasingly used in vaccine clinical trials to measure antigen-specific T-cell mediated immune (CMI) responses in cryopreserved peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and whole blood. However, recent observations indicate that several parameters involved in blood processing can impact PBMC viability and(More)
OBJECTIVE The availability of a hepatitis A virus vaccine for infant and early childhood immunization could reduce the transmission of hepatitis A virus in the United States. This study evaluated the immunogenicity and safety of a hepatitis A virus vaccine (Havrix, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, Rixensart, Belgium) administered concomitantly with(More)
BACKGROUND Diphtheria-tetanus-whole-cell pertussis (DTPw)-based combination vaccines are an attractive option to rapidly achieve high coverage and protection against other important pathogens, such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib). To ensure adequate antigen supply, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals has introduced a new DTPw(More)
BACKGROUND Sequential prime-boost or co-administration of HIV vaccine candidates based on an adjuvanted clade B p24, RT, Nef, p17 fusion protein (F4/AS01) plus a non-replicating adenovirus 35 expressing clade A Gag, RT, Int and Nef (Ad35-GRIN) may lead to a unique immune profile, inducing both strong T-cell and antibody responses.
