Abstract

MenACWY-TT (Nimenrix®) is a quadrivalent meningococcal tetanus toxoid conjugate vaccine licensed in Europe for active immunisation of individuals aged ≥6 weeks against invasive disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis capsular groups A, C, W and Y. MenACWY-TT is the first quadrivalent conjugate vaccine to be approved in Europe for use in infants as young as 6 weeks of age. Numerous phase II–IIIb clinical studies showed that intramuscular MenACWY-TT administered as primary or booster vaccination was highly immunogenic for all four vaccine capsular groups and had an acceptable reactogenicity profile in individuals aged 6 weeks to ≥56 years. MenACWY-TT is as immunogenic and safe as other previously licensed monovalent capsular group C or quadrivalent capsular groups A, C, W and Y meningococcal vaccines and can be coadministered with other routine vaccines without adversely affecting the immunogenicity or safety profiles of either vaccine. Current data indicate that primary and booster vaccination with MenACWY-TT is a valuable and safe option for broadening meningococcal protection against four capsular groups across a broad age range, starting as early as 6 weeks of age.
