Advisory Committee

The safety and effectiveness data from the trials conducted to support the use of this vaccine in children 2 through 23 months of age were not presented to the Vaccines and Related Products Advisory Committee because the product did not raise particular concerns or controversial issues which would have benefited from advisory committee feedback. The concept for the use of the hSBA as a correlate of protection to measure the immune response for inferred effectiveness for the licensing pathway of meningococcal vaccines intended for infants was presented and agreed upon by the Advisory Committee on April 7, 2011.
