Efficacy Trial of Two Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccines (PncCRM and PncOMPC) for Prevention of Acute Otitis Media Due to Vaccine Serotypes

This was a randomized, double-blinded multicenter cohort study of Finnish children aged 2 to 24 months. The study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of two 7-valent pneumococcal conjuga...

Infant Serotype Epidemiology Greece

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major cause of pneumonia, sepsis, bacteremia, and pneumococcal meningitis among infants and children worldwide. The 7-valent conjugate pneumococcal vaccine (P...

Study Evaluating Immune Response of Children Revaccinated With Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine

The primary purpose of this study is to characterize the immune response to a single dose of 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (13vPnC) in children previously vaccinated with a prim...

Study Evaluating Safety and Immunogenicity of 13-Valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine With Influenza Vaccine in Adults

The 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (13vPnC) is being developed for adults to prevent pneumococcal diseases such as meningitis (inflammation of the brain lining), septicemia (bloo...

Study Estimating the Impact of Prevnar 13™ (13vPnC) on Invasive Pneumococcal Disease

This study will estimate the incidence of invasive pneumococcal disease in members of the Northern Kaiser Permanente healthcare system during each of the 5 following introduction of Prevna...

Diagnostic value of serum pneumococcal DNA load during invasive pneumococcal infections.

Detection of pneumococcal DNA in blood could be a fast alternative for blood culture in invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD). In this study we compared the diagnostic value of the serum pneumococcal DN...

Effect of antibiotic streamlining on patient outcome in pneumococcal bacteraemia.

In blood culture-proven pneumococcal infections, streamlining empirical therapy to monotherapy with a penicillin is preferred in order to reduce the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics. However, adheren...

The relevance of pneumococcal serotypes.

Pneumococcal disease leads to considerable mortality, morbidity and healthcare cost worldwide, and disease rates are predicted to increase due to an aging population. There are over 90 different pneum...

Clinical features and outcomes of serotype 19A invasive pneumococcal disease in Calgary, Alberta.

The recent introduction of the seven-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine has led to changes in the proportion of disease caused by different serotypes. The serotypes targeted by the vaccine have bee...

Socioeconomic and Racial Disparities of Pediatric Invasive Pneumococcal Disease After the Introduction of the 7-valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine.

Racial differences have been well described for invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD), but little information exists on how race interacts with community socioeconomic factors.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A febrile disease caused by STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE.

A collective expression for all behavior patterns acquired and socially transmitted through symbols. Culture includes customs, traditions, and language.

Measure of histocompatibility at the HL-A locus. Peripheral blood lymphocytes from two individuals are mixed together in tissue culture for several days. Lymphocytes from incompatible individuals will stimulate each other to proliferate significantly (measured by tritiated thymidine uptake) whereas those from compatible individuals will not. In the one-way MLC test, the lymphocytes from one of the individuals are inactivated (usually by treatment with MITOMYCIN or radiation) thereby allowing only the untreated remaining population of cells to proliferate in response to foreign histocompatibility antigens.

A technique for maintaining or growing TISSUE in vitro, usually by DIFFUSION, perifusion, or PERFUSION. The tissue is cultured directly after removal from the host without being dispersed for cell culture.

Culture media containing biologically active components obtained from previously cultured cells or tissues that have released into the media substances affecting certain cell functions (e.g., growth, lysis).
