General information about the trial


Main objective of the trial 
To evaluate the consistency of the Postdose 3 immune response to three manufactured lots of PR5I when given at 2, 4, and 6 months of age with respect to geometric mean concentrations (GMCs) and geometric mean titers (GMTs).


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 was also available on site in case of any immediate allergic reactions.

Recruitment


Recruitment details 
Study subjects were enrolled from 11 May 2011 to 26 July 2013 at 73 clinical sites in the United States.  
Preassignment


Screening details 
A total of 2808 subjects met all of the inclusion criteria and were enrolled and randomized. Infant vaccinations were administered at 2, 4, and 6 months and the toddler vaccinations at 15 months of age. The Interim Period is the time between the last vaccination of the infant series and the time of administration of the toddler vaccination.

End point title 
Geometric Mean Concentrations (GMC) for Antibodies to Pneumococcal Serotypes  
End point description 
Subject serum samples were collected for testing with a multiplex electrochemiluminescencebased detection assay for serotypespecific pneumococcal polysaccharide antibodies. The analysis population included subjects who met the inclusion criteria, were not protocol violators, had an infant vaccination window of 42 to 84 days after the previous dose, and a blood draw sample window for the endpoint of 28 to 51 days after dose 3.

Adverse events information


Timeframe for reporting adverse events 
SAEs: up to 6 months after vaccination 3 (the last infant vaccination) and up to 15 days after vaccination 4 (the toddler vaccination); Vaccinerelated SAEs and deaths: up to Month 16 (duration of study); Other AEs: up to 15 days after any vaccination


Adverse event reporting additional description 
The All Subjects as Treated population included all randomized subjects who received at least one dose of study vaccine and had safety follow up. For safety analysis, subjects who received the 3 V419 lots were combined.
