OBJECTIVE: To determine the persistence of bactericidal antibody titres following immunisation with serogroup C meningococcal glycoconjugate vaccine at age 6-15 years in order to examine changes in persistence of antibodies with age. DESIGN: Observational study. SETTING: Secondary and tertiary educational institutions in the United Kingdom. PARTICIPANTS: Healthy adolescents aged 11-20 years previously immunised between 6 and 15 years of age with one of the three serogroup C meningococcal vaccines. INTERVENTION: Serum obtained by venepuncture. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Percentage of participants with (rabbit complement) serum bactericidal antibody titres of at least 1:8; geometric mean titres of serogroup C meningococcal serum bactericidal antibody. RESULTS: Five years after immunisation, 84.1% (95% confidence interval 81.6% to 86.3%) of 987 participants had a bactericidal antibody titre of at least 1:8. Geometric mean titres of bactericidal antibody were significantly lower in 11-13 year olds (147, 95%
In January 2011, the Food and Drug Administration lowered the approval age range for use of MenACWY-CRM (Menveo, Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics), a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine, to include persons aged 2 through 55 years. One other quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine, MenACWY-D(Menactra, Sanofi Pasteur), is licensed in the United States for prevention of meningococcal disease caused by serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135 among persons aged 2 through 55 years; MenACWY-D also is licensed as a 2-dose series for children aged 9 through 23 months (1,2). The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that persons aged 2 through 55 years at increased risk for meningococcal disease and all adolescents aged 11 through 18 years be immunized with meningococcal conjugate vaccine. ACIP further recommended, in January 2011, that all adolescents receive a booster dose of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine at age 16 years (3). This report summarizes data ...
We have demonstrated the high specificity of the rSBA in young children who have not been previously vaccinated with MenC polysaccharide or MCC vaccines and could therefore be presumed to be susceptible to MenC infection. Therefore, rSBA titers of ,8 predict susceptibility. This conclusion was corroborated in a recent university outbreak of MenC disease in which rSBA titers in students prior to or at the onset of invasive disease were all ,4, suggesting that it is the absence of bactericidal activity is that is important irrespective of the complement source used (22). We have also shown that rSBA titers of ≥128 are highly predictive of protection but that many sera with rSBA titers in the range 8 to 64 also come from individuals with protection, particularly for adults with natural exposure. The main issue is therefore the interpretation of rSBA titers in the region of 8 to 64. For groups in whom there is likely to be a large proportion of results in this range, it is important to have other ...
We conducted a large-scale cohort study in a real-world setting to evaluate the safety of 1 of the currently available quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccines in the United States, MenACWY-CRM. The population includes individuals receiving the vaccine, as a first dose or a booster dose, at the recommended age of 11 to 18 years old, as well as young adults through 21 years old who are at an increased risk of invasive meningococcal infection. We were able to confirm the diagnosis, determine the onset date, and identify alternative causes of the events using EHRs. The within-person comparison inherent to the SCCS design allowed for control of potential confounders. We observed a temporal association between occurrence of Bells palsy and receipt of MenACWY-CRM concomitantly with other vaccines. Three of the 8 Bells palsy patients in the risk window had comorbidities and infections that could be a prelude to the condition. All 8 cases resolved completely.. The etiology and pathogenesis of ...
The maintenance of adequate serum Ab levels following immunization has been identified as the most important mechanism for individual long-term protection against rapidly invading encapsulated bacteria. The mechanisms for maintaining adequate serum Ab levels and the relationship between Ag-specific memory B cells and Ab at steady state are poorly understood. We measured the frequency of circulating serogroup C meningococcal (MenC)-specific memory B cells in 250 healthy 6- to 12-y-old children 6 y following MenC conjugate vaccine priming, before a booster of a combined Haemophilus influenzae type b-MenC conjugate vaccine and then 1 wk, 1 mo, and 1 y after the booster. We investigated the relationship between circulating MenC-specific memory B cell frequencies and Ab at baseline and following the booster vaccine. We found very low frequencies of circulating MenC-specific memory B cells at steady state in primary school-aged children and little association with MenC IgG Ab levels. Following ...
The primary aim of this study was to determine whether, in preschool children and school leavers, administration of diphtheria and tetanus booster vaccines at the same time, before, or after meningococcal conjugate vaccine had an effect (positive or negative) on the immune responses to any vaccine. No clinically relevant negative interactions were identified, and in all groups immune responses that were indicative of protection developed against the diphtheria, tetanus, and meningococcal antigens in all or almost all children.. The only adverse effect on immunogenicity of the MCC vaccines arising from an interaction was seen with the MCC-TT vaccine, where rSBA and IgG levels were reduced (although not below the protective threshold) by prior and, to a lesser extent, by concomitant administration of DT or Td vaccine. This phenomenon, termed carrier-induced epitopic suppression, has previously been described in the context of conjugate vaccines (1) and is thought to be due to the expansion of ...
On October 27, 2010, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) approved updated recommendations for the use of quadrivalent (serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135) meningococcal conjugate vaccines (Menveo, Novartis; and Menactra, Sanofi Pasteur) in adolescents and persons at high risk for meningococcal disease. These recommendations supplement the previous ACIP recommendations for meningococcal vaccination (1,2). The Meningococcal Vaccines Work Group of ACIP reviewed available data on immunogenicity in high-risk groups, bactericidal antibody persistence after immunization, current epidemiology, vaccine effectiveness (VE), and cost-effectiveness of different strategies for vaccination of adolescents. The Work Group then presented policy options for consideration by the full ACIP. This report summarizes two new recommendations approved by ACIP: 1) routine vaccination of adolescents, preferably at age 11 or 12 years, with a booster dose at age 16 years and 2) a 2-dose primary series ...
BACKGROUND: The persistence of protection from meningococcal disease following immunization with serogroup C meningococcal (MenC) glycoconjugate vaccines in infancy is short-lived. The duration of protective immunity afforded by these vaccines in other at-risk age groups (i.e., adolescents and young adults) is not known. We evaluated the persistence of bactericidal antibodies following immunization with a MenC glycoconjugate vaccine (MenCV) in adolescents and the kinetics of immune response to a meningococcal AC plain polysaccharide vaccine (MenPS) challenge or a repeat dose of MenCV. METHODS: We conducted a randomized comparative trial of 274 healthy 13-15-year-olds from whom a total of 4 blood samples were obtained (prior to administration of a dose of MenPS or MenCV, again on 2 further occasions at varying times from days 2-7 after vaccination, and finally on day 28 after vaccination. The correlate of protection was a serum bactericidal assay titer | or = 8 (with a serum bactericidal assay using
Safety was assessed as the number of subjects who reported solicited local and systemic adverse events following a single injection with either MenC-CRM LIQ or MenC-CRM ROS or MenC-CRM EMV.. Safety was also assessed in subjects who mistakenly received MenC-CRM EMV instead of MenC-CRM ROS. ...
Most likely, the student received a dose of the quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4). There are 2 conjugate vaccines: Menactra (MCV4P) and Menveo (MCV4O). If the lot # is included on the record, you can determine which vaccine the student received. Menactra is a Sanofi Pasteur product and lot #s typically begin with a "U". Menveo is a product from Novartis and lot #s begin with the letter "M". If the lot # is not available, you may document the dose using either MCV4P or MCV4O; use MCV4P if the vaccine was administered prior to March 2010. Only doses of meningococcal vaccine administered on or after the 10th birthday meet the school requirements. Any dose of meningococcal vaccine administered prior to 2006 is the meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine (MPSV4). If a child received the meningococcal vaccine overseas, and the record does not specify MCV4, please contact the ISDH Immunization Division for further guidance.. 19. If a child receives one dose of Varicella vaccine and ...
Physician reviewed meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine patient information - includes meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine description, dosage and directions.
Background: In the absence of a serogroup B meningococcal vaccine, quadrivalent vaccines against serogroups A,C,W-135 & Y offer the broadest possible protection against disease. Both conjugate and polysaccharide quadrivalent meningococcal vaccines are licensed for use in the UK. However, polysaccharide vaccines have been associated with poor immune responses and hyporesponsiveness. Objective: To investigate polysaccharide-induced hyporesponsiveness by measuring the antibody responses to a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine and a quadrivalent plain polysaccharide vaccine. Methods: We conducted an open-label parallel group randomised clinical trial in 150 healthy adult volunteers aged 18-70 between June 2009 and October 2010 in Oxfordshire, UK (Figure 1). Participants were randomised to receive either two doses of a conjugate quadrivalent ACWY vaccine 28 days apart (Group 1, n = 75), or one dose of a polysaccharide quadrivalent ACWY vaccine followed by one dose of a conjugate quadrivalent ACWY

PY - 2018/3/20. Y1 - 2018/3/20. N2 - Background: Immunosuppressed kidney transplant patients may have suboptimal response to vaccinations. The aim of this study was to determine antibody response to a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY-D) in adolescents with a kidney transplant. Methods: This was a prospective, single-center, cohort study. Adolescent patients (11-22 years old) with a functioning kidney transplant for at least 3 months and no previous meningococcal vaccination were eligible for enrollment. Antibody levels to all serogroups were measured before vaccination (baseline) and at 4 weeks and 1, 2 and 3 years after vaccination. Seropositivity was defined as a titer ≥ 1:8 at baseline, and seroconversion as a fourfold or greater increase in antibody titer from baseline at ...

In 2002-2005, Canada introduced universal MenC programmes consisting of 1,2 or 3 infant doses. Most are one (12 mth) dose. High rates of serogroupC disease in 2000 and 2001 prompted some provinces to launch universal MenC vaccination programmes in 2002. The goal was to provide protection in infancy and early childhood (the time of most risk) with the hope that the protection would extend throughout adolescence (the second highest risk). It is unclear if early multi-dosing or 1 dose programmes would offer better protection (lack of data). Each province in Canada has chosen different Meningococcal C Conjugate vaccine provision schedules for the primary vaccinations.. This study will look at short term protection after the differing provincial series of vaccinations has been given and compare those who do not get primary vaccination under 1 year of age (NS) with two schedules of primary immunization (BC at 2 and 4 mths and Alberta at 2 months). A blood sample will be collected at 12-13 mths for ...

Background Recently the incidence of meningococcal serogroup Y (MenY) and in particular serogroup W (MenW) invasive disease has risen in several European countries, including the Netherlands. Adolescents are a target group for primary prevention through vaccination to protect against disease and reduce carriage and induce herd protection in the population. ... read more The present study assessed MenA, MenW and MenY antibody levels in adolescents up to one year following primary vaccination with quadrivalent MenACWY-PS conjugated to tetanus toxoid (MenACWY-TT). Methods In this phase IV, open-label study, healthy 10-, 12- and 15-year-olds received the MenACWY-TT vaccine. Blood samples were collected before, 1 month and 1 year after the vaccination. Functional antibody levels against MenA, MenW and MenY were measured with serum bactericidal assay using baby rabbit complement (rSBA). MenA-, MenW-, and MenY-PS specific IgG, IgG1 and IgG2 levels were measured using fluorescent-bead-based multiplex ...
BACKGROUND: Neisseria meningitidis is a globally important cause of meningitis and septicaemia. Twelve capsular groups of meningococci are known, and quadrivalent vaccines against four of these (A, C, W and Y) are available as plain-polysaccharide and protein-polysaccharide conjugate vaccines. Here we apply contemporary methods to describe B-cell responses to meningococcal polysaccharide and conjugate vaccines. METHODS: Twenty adults were randomly assigned to receive either a meningococcal plain-polysaccharide or conjugate vaccine; one month later all received the conjugate vaccine. Blood samples were taken pre-vaccination and 7, 21 and 28 days after vaccination; B-cell responses were assessed by ELISpot, serum bactericidal assay, flow cytometry and gene expression microarray. RESULTS: Seven days after an initial dose of either vaccine, a gene expression signature characteristic of plasmablasts was detectable. The frequency of newly generated plasma cells (CXCR3(+)HLA-DR(+)) and the expression of

Negative correlations between baseline antibody concentrations and increases in antibody concentrations (after booster doses of vaccines) have been reported previously. Such correlation coefficients are widely reported by statisticians to be subject to mathematical coupling. Negative correlations may be attributable partly or wholly to the combination of mathematical coupling and measurement error (or other short term fluctuations in measurements) and therefore not clinically interpretable. In this study we re-analysed the serum antibody responses from five clinical trials of serogroup C meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenCV) given to infants for priming followed by boosting with MenCV or a meningococcal A/C polysaccharide vaccine (MenA/C) at 12 months of age. Using Pearsons correlation method to assess the effect of pre-booster MenC-IgG concentration on the relative increase in MenC-IgG concentration post-booster, a significant negative correlation was observed for all the groups, indicating that
CONTEXT: The success of conjugate vaccines in decreasing invasive disease due to Streptococcus pneumoniae and group C Neisseria meningitidis has placed pressure on crowded infant immunization schedules, making development of combination vaccines a priority. OBJECTIVE: To determine the safety and immunogenicity of a combination 9-valent pneumococcal-group C meningococcal conjugate candidate vaccine (Pnc9-MenC) administered as part of the routine UK infant immunization schedule at ages 2, 3, and 4 months. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Phase 2 randomized controlled trial conducted from August 2000 to January 2002 and enrolling 240 healthy infants aged 7 to 11 weeks from 2 UK centers, with home follow-up visits at ages 2, 3, 4, and 5 months. INTERVENTION: Pnc9-MenC (n = 120) or monovalent group C meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenC) (n = 120) administered in addition to routine immunizations (diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and whole-cell pertussis [DTwP], Haemophilus influenzae type b [Hib]
OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated the immune response and safety profile of 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) in preterm infants compared with term infants. METHODS: This Phase IV, open-label, 2-arm, multicenter, parallel-group study enrolled 200 healthy infants (preterm, n = 100; term, n = 100) aged 42 to 98 days. All subjects received PCV13 at ages 2, 3, 4 (infant series), and 12 (toddler dose [TD]) months, together with routine vaccines (diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis, hepatitis B, inactivated poliovirus, and Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine and meningococcal group C conjugate vaccine). RESULTS: Most subjects achieved an anticapsular immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody concentration ≥ 0.35 µg/mL for all serotypes: >85% after the infant series (except preterm infants for serotypes 5, 6A, and 6B) and >97% after TD (except for serotype 3). Preterm infants had overall lower IgG geometric mean concentrations compared with term infants; however, geometric mean fold ...
Meningococcal vaccine refers to any of the vaccines used to prevent infection by Neisseria meningitidis.[1] Different versions are effective against some or all of the following types of meningococcus: A, C, W-135, and Y.[1] The vaccines are between 85 and 100% effective for at least two years.[1] They result in a decrease in meningitis and sepsis among populations where they are widely used.[2][3] They are given either by injection into a muscle or just under the skin.[1]
The 10-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV10) was introduced in the Brazilian National Immunization Program in March 2010, scheduled at 2, 4, and 6 months, with a booster at 12-15 months of age. The meningococcal C conjugate vaccine (MCC) was introduced in November 2010, scheduled at 3 and 5 months, with a booster dose at 12-15 months of age and no catch-up for older age groups. In this interrupted time-series analysis study, we used Brazilian mortality data from 2005 to 2015 for children under five years of age (excluding data from the state of Bahia) to assess the combined impact of these vaccines on the overall burden of meningitis mortality among children aged 0-23 months and 2-4 years, as defined using meningitis and meningococcemia specific International Classification of Diseases - tenth revision codes ...

A phase II clinical study was conducted in African toddlers (aged 12 to 23 months), with subjects receiving either investigational meningococcal group A conjugate (PsA-TT), meningococcal ACWY polysaccharide (PsACWY), or Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib-TT) vaccine. Ten months following vaccination, the 3 study groups were further randomized to receive a dose of PsA-TT, a 1/5 dose of PsACWY, or a dose of Hib-TT vaccine. Group A serum bactericidal antibody (SBA) results have been reported previously, with PsA-TT demonstrating superior immunogenicity versus PsACWY vaccine. Immunogenicity for serogroups W135 and C was assessed by SBA assay to investigate the impact of multiple doses in this age group. Blood samples were taken prior to vaccination, 28 days and 40 weeks post-primary vaccination, and 7 and 28 days post-booster vaccination with a 1/5 dose of PsACWY. Subjects who had previously received a full dose of PsACWY had W135 SBA geometric mean titers (GMTs) of 26.1 and 4.4 at 7 and 28 days ...
Researchers have now developed a new vaccine, a native outer membrane vesicle (NOMV) vaccine, for meningitis and bloodstream infections caused by "meningococcal group B" bacteria. This will allow younger people to be vaccinated and will address several limitations of the current vaccinations. The research is published this week in mBio, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology.. "We developed the improved version of the vaccine by making several genetic changes to the strain of bacteria used to produce the vaccine, resulting in a broadly protective vaccine rather than a strain-specific vaccine," said Peter Beernink, Ph.D., Scientist at the Center for Immunobiology and Vaccine Development, Benioff Childrens Hospital Oakland.. There are currently only two licensed vaccines for prevention of meningitis and bloodstream infections caused by "meningococcal group B" bacteria, which are only licensed for use in people age 10 years and older. Both vaccines contain a bacterial protein known as ...
Strains belonging to capsular serogroup A N. meningitidis (MenA) have been the main cause of the devastating epidemics of meningitis occurring in sub-Saharan Africa, but there has been an increasing contribution of serogroups W and X strains with epidemic potential in the last two decades.. Protein-conjugated polysaccharide vaccines against serogroup A, C, W and Y meningococcal disease have been developed for the Western market, but the price of these products is prohibitive to their use by developing countries. To-date there is no commercial vaccine against MenX.. Through a public-private partnership between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), an affordable polysaccharide conjugate vaccine (MenAfriVac) has been developed for preventive mass immunization against MenA in the meningitis belt. The vaccine was introduced in mass vaccination campaigns starting in 2010 and to-date more than 200 million individuals between 1 and 29 years of ...

The 4CMenB vaccine was licensed for use in Europe in January 2013, with approved dosage schedules including the 2, 4, 6, 12 month and 40, 42 month schedules evaluated in this study. In contrast to the single dose of 4CMenB given at 12 months of age to one of our study groups, the licensed indication for children 1-2 years of age is 2 doses of 4CMenB at least 2 months apart, with a booster dose given 1-2 years later.. Among children who received 4CMenB at 2, 4, 6, and 12 months of age in the original study, by 40 months of age the proportions with hSBA titres of 1:4 or greater were 65% for strain 44/76-SL (fHbp), 76% for strain 5/99 (NadA) and 41% for strain NZ98/254. These proportions represent a decline from 13 months of age (100%, 93% and 96%, respectively).3 However, a good response to a booster dose of vaccine was observed. Experience with other meningococcal vaccines has shown that waning of bactericidal antibody titres was associated with a decline in vaccine effectiveness following infant ...
