ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.vaccine.2009.07.098||Abstract:||This study evaluates the safety and efficacy against severe rotavirus gastroenteritis of the oral live attenuated human rotavirus vaccine RIX4414 (Rotarix™) during the first 2 years of life in Asian infants from high-income countries. Healthy infants were enrolled to receive 2 doses of RIX4414 (N = 5359) or placebo (N = 5349). From 2 weeks post-dose 2 to 2 years of age, vaccine efficacy was 96.1% (95%CI:85.1%; 99.5%) against severe rotavirus gastroenteritis, 100% (95%CI:80.8%; 100%) against wild-type G1P and 93.6% (95%CI:74.7%; 99.3%) against circulating non-G1 rotavirus types. No intussusception cases were reported within 31 days post-vaccination. RIX4414 shows a good safety profile and offers high protection during the first 2 years of life with potentially significant public health impact in this population. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
