Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   36086   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5931   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Healthy subjects without known medical conditions will be vaccinated against N. menigitidis serogroup C. Active prevention of menigococcal C disease caused by Neisseria menigitidis
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To demonstrate non-inferiority, 10 days after the booster vaccination, of the memory antibody response (in terms of percent responders) to Neisseria meningitidis serogroup C after 1 dose of Menjugate® at 2 months of age plus a booster in the second year of life (study group 2) in comparison with the memory antibody response after 2 doses of Menjugate at 2 and 4 months of age plus a booster in the second year of life (study group 1), as measured by bactericidal assay using rabbit complement (rBCA).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    -Compare the memory response (% responders) in group 3 with the memory response in study group 1.
    -Compare the memory response group 1, with the antibody response elicited after 1 dose given in the 2nd year of life.
    -Evaluate the response 1 month after 1 dose of Menjugate at 2 or 6 months of age.
    Compare the response 1 month after 1 dose of Menjugate at either 2 or 6 months of age with the antibody response 1 month after 2 doses at 2 and 4 months of age.
    -Evaluate the persistence of the response in study groups 1 to 3 and the persistence of antibody response after 2 doses at 2 and 4 months of age, before the administration of the booster at ≥8 to ≤10, 12-16, and at 24 months of age after booster vaccination.
    -Evaluate the memory response after 1 dose of Menjugate at either 2 or 6 months of age plus a booster dose in the 2nd year of life.
    -Evaluate the imm. response of hexavalent vaccine components with priority on H.influenzae type B, when concomitantly given with Menjugate.
