Drug Interactions
Infanrix hexa can be given concomitantly with pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7, PCV10 and PCV13), meningococcal serogroup C conjugate vaccine (CRM197 and TT conjugates), meningococcal serogroups A, C, W-135 and Y conjugate vaccine (TT conjugate), oral rotavirus vaccine and measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) vaccine.
Data have shown no clinically relevant interference in the antibody response to each of the individual antigens, although inconsistent antibody response to poliovirus type 2 in co-administration with Synflorix was observed (seroprotection ranging from 78% to 100%) and the immune response rates to the PRP (Hib) antigen of Infanrix hexa after 2 doses given at 2 and 4 months of age were higher if co-administered with a tetanus toxoid conjugate pneumococcal or meningococcal vaccine (see Pharmacology: Pharmacodynamics under Actions). The clinical relevance of these observations remains unknown.
Data from clinical studies indicate that, when Infanrix hexa is co-administered with pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, the rate of febrile reactions is higher compared to that occurring following the administration of Infanrix hexa alone. Data from one clinical study indicate that when Infanrix hexa is co-administered with measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) vaccine, the rate of febrile reactions is higher compared to that occurring following the administration of Infanrix hexa alone and similar to that occurring following the administration of MMRV vaccine alone (see Precautions and Adverse Reactions). The immune responses were unaffected.
As with other vaccines it may be expected that in patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy, an adequate response may not be achieved.
