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...

Blood culture fluorescence rates predict severity and mortality of invasive pneumococcal pneumonia.

Invasive pneumococcal pneumonia is associated with high rates of mortality. Clinical assessment tools have poor sensitivity for predicting clinical outcomes. Molecular measurements of bacterial load c...

PCVs in individuals at increased risk of pneumococcal disease: a literature review.

The use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) in childhood pneumococcal immunization programs successfully reduced the incidence of pneumococcal disease in children. Nonetheless, there remains a hig...

Differential Impact of Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccines on Bacteremic Pneumonia Versus Other Invasive Pneumococcal Disease.

Bacteremic pneumonia (BP) accounts for ~35% of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) in young children. Our aims were to compare age, seasonal and serotype distribution of BP versus non-BP IPD and to de...

Minimum Incidence of Adult Invasive Pneumococcal Disease in Blantyre, Malawi an Urban African Setting: A Hospital Based Prospective Cohort Study.

Invasive pneumococcal disease causes substantial morbidity and mortality in Africa. Evaluating population level indirect impact on adult disease of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) programmes in i...

Global Burden of Neonatal Invasive Pneumococcal Disease - A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

This study aimed to estimate the global burden of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) incidence among neonates during the pre-pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (pre-PCV) era.

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).
