OBJECTIVE: The goal was to test a multifaceted distraction method designed to reduce injection-associated pain in school-aged children... CONCLUSION: This multifaceted distraction intervention reduced significantly the pain and discomfort of childhood immunizations in children 4 to 6 years of age.

Safety of a refrigerator-stable varicella vaccine (VARIVAX) in healthy 12- to 15-month-old children: A randomized, double-blind, cross-over study. [2009.07]
The safety of a single injection of the refrigerator-stable formulation of varicella vaccine VARIVAX was assessed in a blind, randomized, cross-over trial... In summary, the refrigerator-stable formulation of VARIVAX had a good safety profile and was well tolerated in healthy children aged 12 to 15 months, consistent with experience with the frozen formulation of VARIVAX.

Consistency Study of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Biologicals' MMR Vaccine (209762) (Priorix®) Comparing Immunogenicity and Safety to Merck & Co., Inc.'s MMR Vaccine (M M R®II), in Children 12 to 15 Months of Age [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate consistency in terms of the immune response to three different lots of GSK Biologicals' trivalent MMR vaccine manufactured to target potencies, and compare its immunogenicity to Merck & Co., Inc.'s MMR vaccine, which is approved for use in the United States (US).

Safety and Immunogenicity Study of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Biologicals' Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) Vaccine (209762) Compared to Merck & Co., Inc.'s MMR Vaccine in Healthy Children 12 to 15 Months of Age [Active, not recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of GSK Biologicals' trivalent MMR (Priorix®), comparing it to Merck's MMR vaccine (M-M-R®II), which is approved for use in the US in healthy children 12 to 15 months of age.

Immunogenicity of GSKs' MMR Vaccine (209762) vs. M-M-R® II, When Given With Routine Vaccines at 12-15 Months of Age [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to compare two measles, mumps and rubella conjugate vaccines (manufactured by GSK and Merck and Company ) in terms of the immune response elicited and safety with a six month follow-up after first vaccination. Additionally, antibody persistence will be assessed one and two years after administration of MMR vaccine. The Protocol Posting has been updated following Protocol amendment 1 and 2, Oct 2009.

The Safety and Immunogenicity Study of Rotavirus Vaccine Simultaneously Vaccinated With MR or MMR Vaccine [Enrolling by invitation]
Nowadays these are some vaccines being vaccinated simultaneously, and a doubt is aroused if the safety and immunogenicity are same between inoculating several vaccines simultaneously and inoculating individually. So we carry out this study. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the difference of safety and immunogenicity on vaccinating rotavirus vaccine simultaneously with measles-rubella vaccine(MR) or measles-mumps-rubella vaccine(MMR) compared to vaccinating rotavirus vaccine, MR or MMR individually.

Immunogenicity and Safety Study of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Biologicals' Combined Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) Vaccine in Children in Their Second Year of Life [Active, not recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate end of shelf-life potency in terms of the immunogenicity and safety of GSK Biologicals' trivalent MMR vaccine, by comparing it to Merck & Co., Inc.'s MMR vaccine, which is approved for use in the United States (US).
