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   35419   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5814   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).

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the safety of PEDIACEL® booster dose by comparing the fever rates between PEDIACEL® and Infanrix® hexa vaccines when both are co-administered with Prevenar® to toddlers at 11-18 months of age.
    Protection of trial subjects
    Only subjects that met all the study inclusion and none of the exclusion criteria were randomized and vaccinated in the study. Vaccinations were performed by qualified and trained study personnel. Subjects with allergy to any of the vaccine components were not vaccinated. After vaccination, subjects were also kept under clinical observation for 30 minutes to ensure their safety. Appropriate medical equipment were also available on site in case of any immediate allergic reactions.
    Background therapy
    Not applicable
    Evidence for comparator
    The control, Infanrix® hexa, is a licensed combination vaccine.

    Recruitment
    Recruitment details
    Study subjects were enrolled from 29 September 2006 to 29 June 2007 at 53 clinical centers in Germany.

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    A total of 847 subjects who met all inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria were enrolled; 845 were vaccinated.

    Roles blinded
    Subject, Investigator, Assessor
    Blinding implementation details
    Subjects and assessors were blinded to the vaccine. Each site had 1 designated person who was unblinded to the randomisation/vaccine administered and was responsible for the preparation and administration of the vaccine. All others remained blinded to the vaccine group until after the safety assessment. Before the assessment, the code was broken if it was necessary to determine/influence treatment of serious AEs. It was also broken afterwards for Pediacel subjects to receive ENGERIX-B Kinder.

    Notes
    [1] - Non-inferiority is achieved if the upper limit of the two-sided 95% CI of PEDIACEL - Infanrix hexa is < 10% (primary objective). Difference= PEDIACEL fever rate - Infanrix hexa fever rate. The CIs were computed using the normal approximation to the binomial distribution without continuity correction.

    Percentage of Subjects with Booster Response for Pertussis Antigens Post- Vaccination with Either PEDIACEL or Infanrix Hexa Vaccine
    End point description
    Antibodies were measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for pertussis toxoid (PT), filamentous haemagglutinin (FHA), pertactin (PRN), and fimbriae types 2 and 3 (FIM). Booster response was defined as ≥ 4-fold rise from baseline if baseline antibody response was < 4x lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) or ≥ 2-fold rise from baseline if baseline antibody response was ≥ 4xLLOQ.
