Conditions meningitis, meningococcal infection
Treatment meningococcal (groups a, c, y and w-135) polysaccharide diphtheria toxoid conjugate vaccine
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Sanofi Pasteur, a Sanofi Company
Start date June 2013
End date March 2016
Trial size 300 participants
Trial identifier NCT01890759, CTRI/2014/12/005272, MTA70, U1111-1122-2171


The purpose of this study is to assess the immunogenicity and safety of Menactra® vaccine given as a two-dose series in infants and toddlers.

Primary Objectives:

- To assess the seroprotection rate (percentage of subjects with a serum bactericidal assay using human complement [SBA-HC] titer ≥ 1:8) 28 days after the second of 2 doses of Menactra® administered 3 to 6 months apart.

Secondary Objectives:

- To assess the immune responses to meningococcal antigens (serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135) 28 days following the second vaccination with Menactra® using SBA-HC and SBA-BR titers.

- To assess the safety profile of Menactra® after each and any vaccination.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants from 9 months up to 17 months old.

Exclusion Criteria: - Participation in the 4 weeks preceding inclusion or planned participation during the present trial period in another clinical trial investigating a vaccine, drug, medical device, or medical procedure. - Receipt of any vaccine in the 4 weeks preceding each trial vaccination or planned receipt of any vaccine in the 4 weeks following each trial vaccination, except for: - (i) influenza vaccination, which may be received at least 2 weeks before study vaccines. - (ii) measles (M) or measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) routine vaccination, which can be administered concomitantly with the first dose of study vaccine as per routine immunization schedule - (iii) for subjects enrolled at Indian sites: oral poliomyelitis vaccine (OPV) received during National Immunization Days (NIDs) and supplementary immunization activity days (SIADs) - Previous vaccination against meningococcal disease with either the study vaccine or another meningococcal vaccine - Receipt of immune globulins, blood or blood-derived products in the past 3 months - Known or suspected congenital or acquired immunodeficiency; or receipt of immunosuppressive therapy, such as anti-cancer chemotherapy or radiation therapy, within the preceding 6 months; or long-term systemic corticosteroid therapy (prednisone or equivalent for more than 2 consecutive weeks within the past 3 months) - History of meningococcal diseases, confirmed either clinically, serologically, or microbiologically - At high risk, in the opinion of the Investigator, for meningococcal disease during the trial - Known or suspected systemic hypersensitivity to any of the vaccine components, or history of a life-threatening reaction to the vaccine used in the trial or to a vaccine containing any of the same substances - Known thrombocytopenia, contraindicating intramuscular vaccination - Bleeding disorder, or receipt of anticoagulants in the 3 weeks preceding inclusion, contraindicating intramuscular vaccination - In an emergency setting, or hospitalized involuntarily - Chronic illness that, in the opinion of the investigator, is at a stage where it might interfere with trial conduct or completion - For subjects enrolled at Indian sites: Moderate or severe acute illness/infection (according to investigator judgment) on the day of vaccination or febrile illness (temperature ≥ 38.0°C). - For subjects enrolled at Russian sites: Acute disease of any severity on the day of vaccination or febrile illness (axillary temperature ≥ 37.0°C). A prospective subject should not be included in the study until the condition has resolved or the febrile event has subsided. - Receipt of oral or injectable antibiotic therapy within 72 hours prior to the first blood draw - Identified as a natural or adopted child of the Investigator or employee with direct involvement in the proposed study - Personal history of Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
