Tetravalent meningococcal serogroups A, C, W-135 and Y conjugate vaccine is well tolerated and immunogenic when co-administered with measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine during the second year of life: An open, randomized controlled trial. [2011.06.06]
Co-administration of meningococcal ACWY-tetanus toxoid conjugate vaccine (ACWY-TT) with MMRV vaccine was investigated in 1000 12-23-month old children randomized (3:3:1:1) to receive co-administered ACWY-TT+MMRV, or a single dose of ACWY-TT, MMRV or MenC-CRM(197)... This study has been registered at www.clinicaltrials.gov NCT00474266.

Immunogenicity and safety of a measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine following a 4-week or a 12-month interval between two doses. [2011.05.17]
BACKGROUND: The MMRV combination vaccine, Priorix-Tetra, is currently licensed in several European countries using a two-dose schedule in infants aged >/=9 months, with a preferred 6-week to 3-month interval between doses. This study was undertaken to generate safety and immunogenicity data for two doses of MMRV vaccine administered according to dose schedules using the shortest permitted interval of 4 weeks versus a longer interval of 12 months, which would allow flexible adaptation to local immunization calendars... CONCLUSIONS: Two doses of MMRV vaccine administered in the second year of life elicited adequate immunogenicity and were well-tolerated whether administered with a dose interval of 4 weeks or 12 months.

Safety and immunogenicity of coadministering a combined meningococcal serogroup C and Haemophilus influenzae type b conjugate vaccine with 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine and measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine at 12 months of age. [2011.03]
The coadministration of the combined meningococcal serogroup C conjugate (MCC)/Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine with pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7) and measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine at 12 months of age was investigated to assess the safety and immunogenicity of this regimen compared with separate administration of the conjugate vaccines...

Intralesional immunotherapy of common warts: successful treatment with mumps, measles and rubella vaccine. [2010.10]
BACKGROUND: Despite numerous therapeutic modalities reported in the literature, treatment of common warts remains a continuing challenge and there is no universal consensus about optimal treatment. Recently, intralesional immunotherapy by different antigens has proved efficacy in the treatment of different types of warts. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of intralesional mumps, measles and rubella (MMR) vaccine in the treatment of common warts... CONCLUSIONS: Intralesional immunotherapy by MMR vaccine is a promising effective and safe treatment modality for common warts, particularly the multiple ones. (c) 2010 The Authors.

Safety and immunogenicity of a booster dose of the 10-valent pneumococcal nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae protein D conjugate vaccine coadministered with measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine in children aged 12 to 16 months. [2010.06]
BACKGROUND: A booster dose of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine may be administered at the same age as measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) vaccination. This study examined the safety, reactogenicity, and immunogenicity of a booster dose of the 10-valent pneumococcal nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae protein D conjugate vaccine (PHiD-CV) when coadministered with MMRV vaccine... CONCLUSIONS: PHiD-CV and MMRV vaccine can be coadministered without compromising the safety and immunogenicity profiles of either vaccine.

Clinical Trials Related to Meruvax II (Rubella Vaccine)

Immunogenicity and Safety of a Combined Vaccine to Prevent Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Chickenpox Diseases [No longer recruiting]

Immunogenicity and Safety of a Combined Vaccine to Prevent Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Chickenpox Diseases [Completed]

Immunogenicity and Safety of a Combined Vaccine to Prevent Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Chickenpox Diseases [Completed]

Coadministration of Measles-rubella and Rotavirus Vaccines [Recruiting]
The investigators aim to establish the non-inferiority of concomitant administration of measles-rubella and rotavirus vaccines to measles-rubella vaccine given alone in terms of measles seroconversion rates. The primary study hypothesis is the measles seroconversion rate as defined by the percentage of children seroconverting to measles with a measles serum antibody concentration of >=1: 120 at 8 weeks post vaccination after the concomitant administration of measles-rubella and rotavirus vaccines is non-inferior to that obtained when measles-rubella vaccine is given alone in children 9 months of age who have received a primary rotavirus vaccine series with the first dose between 6 and 10 weeks and the second at least 4 weeks later and are seronegative for measles antibody in the pre-vaccination sample.

Study to Evaluate Frozen Versus Refrigerated MMRV (Combined Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella) Investigational Vaccine [No longer recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that an investigational refrigerated vaccine with measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella is well tolerated and has similar immune response when compared to a frozen vaccine with measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella.
