Infanrix (Diphtheria Toxoid / Tetanus Toxoid / Acellular Pertussis Vaccine) - Summary



INFANRIX (Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed) is a noninfectious, sterile combination of diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and 3 pertussis antigens [inactivated pertussis toxin (PT), filamentous hemagglutinin (FHA), and pertactin (69 kiloDalton outer membrane protein)] adsorbed onto aluminum hydroxide. INFANRIX is intended for intramuscular injection only.

INFANRIX is indicated for active immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough) as a 5-dose series in infants and children 6 weeks to 7 years of age (prior to seventh birthday). Because of the substantial risks of complications from pertussis disease in infants, completion of the primary series of 3 doses of vaccine early in life is strongly recommended (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION). 1 INFANRIX should not be administered to any infant before the age of 6 weeks, or to individuals 7 years of age or older.

When passive protection against tetanus or diphtheria is required, Tetanus Immune Globulin or Diphtheria Antitoxin, respectively, should be administered at separate sites. 1

As with any vaccine, INFANRIX may not protect 100% of individuals receiving the vaccine, and is not recommended for treatment of actual infections.

Published Studies Related to Infanrix (Diphtheria / Tetanus / Pertussis)

Phase II and III Clinical Studies of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Containing Inactivated Polio Vaccine Derived from Sabin Strains (DTaP-sIPV). [2013]
vaccine (DTaP)... CONCLUSIONS: DTaP-sIPV was shown to be a safe and immunogenic vaccine.

An investigational tetravalent meningococcal serogroups A, C, W-135 and Y-tetanus toxoid conjugate vaccine co-administered with Infanrix hexa is immunogenic, with an acceptable safety profile in 12-23-month-old children. [2011.06.06]
Tetravalent meningococcal serogroups ACWY conjugate vaccines will provide an advantage to those at most risk of invasive meningococcal disease; namely young children. Co-administration of ACWY-TT with DTaP-HBV-IPV/Hib was assessed in a randomized trial in 793 children aged 12-23 months.ACWY-TT and DTaP-HBV-IPV/Hib co-administration during the second year would facilitate introduction of ACWY-TT into routine toddler vaccination schedules.

Immunogenicity and safety of an investigational hexavalent diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis-inactivated poliovirus-hepatitis B-Haemophilus influenzae B conjugate combined vaccine in healthy 2-, 4-, and 6-month-old Argentinean infants. [2011.06]
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Assessment of a new, fully liquid, investigational hexavalent DTaP-IPV-Hep B-PRP-T vaccine (Hexaxim, Sanofi Pasteur), containing the same active ingredients as Pentaxim (DTaP-IPV//PRT-T) and 10 mug Hansenula polymorpha-derived recombinant hepatitis B (Hep B) surface antigen, Sanofi Pasteur, in Argentinean infants... CONCLUSIONS: The new, fully liquid, investigational DTaP-IPV-Hep B-PRP-T vaccine (Hexaxim) is highly immunogenic and safe when compared with licensed comparators, warranting further development.

Immunogenicity and safety of a pentavalent acellular pertussis combined vaccine including diphtheria, tetanus, inactivated poliovirus and conjugated Haemophilus Influenzae type b polysaccharide for primary vaccination at 2, 3, 4 or 3, 4, 5 months of age in infants in China. [2011.02.24]
The aim was to demonstrate the immunogenicity and safety of a DTaP-IPV//PRP-T combined vaccine (Pentaxim((R))) compared to individual vaccines in infants in the People's Republic of China. Infants (N=792) were randomly assigned to receive DTaP-IPV//PRP-T at 2, 3 and 4 months of age (Group A) or 3, 4 and 5 months of age (Group B), or DTaP (Wuhan Institute of Biological Products), PRP-T (Act-Hib((R))) and IPV (Imovax((R)) Polio) at 3, 4 and 5 months of age (Group C)...

Immunogenicity and safety of a combined diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, and inactivated poliovirus vaccine (DTaP-IPV) compared to separate administration of standalone DTaP and IPV vaccines: a randomized, controlled study in infants in the Republic of Korea. [2011.02.11]
This randomized trial enrolled 442 infants in the Republic of Korea to assess the immunogenicity and safety of a combined diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, and inactivated poliovirus vaccine (DTaP-IPV; Tetraxim) for primary vaccination at 2, 4 and 6 months of age compared with DTaP and IPV vaccines given separately.

Clinical Trials Related to Infanrix (Diphtheria / Tetanus / Pertussis)

Immunogenicity and Safety Study of a Booster Dose (5th) of Diphteria-Tetanus-Pertussis-Polio Vaccine [Completed]
An open clinical trial to study the immune response and safety after giving a booster dose (5th Dose) of a combination vaccine against Diphteria-Tetanus-Pertussis-Polio to healthy adolescents 15-16 Years of age. The first three doses were given during the first year of life, according to the Norwegian child immunization program. The fourth dose was given in a previous clinical trial performed in 1998 when the children were 6-7 years old. In 2006 there was a change in the child immunization program in Norway: a fourth dose of a Combination Vaccine Against Diphteria-Tetanus-Pertussis-Polio is given to children 6-7 years old. This study will give us information if there is need for an additional dose (5th dose) of a combination vaccine, containing the pertussis components, before the adolescents are leaving secondary school.

Randomized Study of Not Giving Diphteria-tetanus-pertussis Vaccination With or After Measles Vaccination [Completed]
In non-randomized studies, routine childhood vaccinations have been observed to have non-targeted effects. Difteria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine provided with or after measles vaccine (MV) is associated with increased mortality in areas with herd immunity to pertussis. We will examine in a randomised study of 6000 children the effect of not administering DTP simultaneously with or after MV on overall child mortality, hospitalization rates, and the immunological responses after vaccination. We will also examine potential sex-differential effects in the outcomes and interactions with other vaccines, other health interventions and season.

Phase IV Interchangeability Study of a Liquid Pentavalent Combination Vaccine [Completed]
The objective of this study is to compare the Safety and Immunogenicity of a mixed sequence of 2 different pentavalent vaccines (Diphtheria-Tetanus- Pertussis, Hepatitis B and Hib combination Vaccines) with single sequence of Shan 5 in infants.

Immunology of Non-specific Effects of Vaccine [Completed]

- General: To investigate the immunological background for the non-specific effects of

diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) and measles vaccines on child mortality

- Specific: Examine the cytokine responses and possible association with morbidity in a

study of DTP vaccinated children who will be randomised to receive a measles vaccine or no vaccine at 4½ months of age. (All children will receive a measles vaccine at 9 months of age)

Phase III Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of Acellular and Whole-Cell Pertussis Vaccines [Completed]
OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the efficacy of 2 acellular pertussis vaccines vs. whole-cell pertussis vaccine vs. placebo in infants living in Italy. II. Compare the relative protection of each of the acellular vaccines vs. the whole-cell vaccine vs. laboratory-confirmed pertussis. III. Assess the relative efficacy of the acellular vaccines with respect to one another. IV. Assess the immunogenicity of acellular vs. whole-cell vaccines in the study population. V. Compare the frequency of adverse events with each vaccine. VI. Compare the frequency of adverse events attributable to the pertussis component in each of the 3 vaccines. VII. Assess alternative laboratory diagnostic techniques for pertussis in estimating vaccine efficacy, i. e., mucosal immune response, DNA probes, or antibody response to other components of the organism. VIII. Assess the relative efficacy estimates of each vaccine, using clinical criteria to compare the relative incidence rates in each vaccine group.
