Immunogenicity, safety, and memory of different schedules of Neisseria meningitidis A/C-diphtheria toxoid conjugate vaccine in infants in Niger.

Abstract : We studied one to four doses of meningococcal polysaccharides A and C conjugated to diphtheria toxoid (Men D) versus A/C polysaccharide (Men PS) vaccine in 618 infants in Niger. Men PS at 24 months permitted evaluating memory. Two Men D doses (at 3 and 9 months) induced higher serum bactericidal activity (SBA) than other regimens. SBA titers after Men PS at 24 months were higher in those given Men D in infancy versus Men PS. While responses were lower for serogroup C, hyporesponsiveness was not evident. Men D was well-tolerated. A single Men D dose in infancy appeared to induce memory.
