Clinical trial: PsA-TT-003a
Community information session before the start of clinical trial psA-TT-003a.
This Phase 2/3 clinical trial was held in India and compared the immunogenicity and long-term persistence of antibodies of a single dose of the meningococcal A conjugate (PsA-TT) vaccine with that of the meningococcal A component of the polysaccharide ACWY vaccine. The study also assessed the safety of the vaccine. A total of 345 subjects were enrolled.
Study title: A Phase II/III, observer-blind, randomized, active controlled study to compare the safety and immunogenicity of a meningococcal A conjugate vaccine (PsA-TT) with meningococcal ACWY polysaccharide vaccine administered in healthy children 2–10 years of age.
