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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Children with sickle cell disease (SCD) are particularly susceptible to pneumococcal infection. Administration of the 13-valent conjugate pneumococcal vaccine which is now available in Nigeria may hel...
In this study we calculate the effectiveness of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCV) against invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) among children under the age of two years using the indirect cohort me...
Streptococcus pneumoniae is the commonest cause of bacteremic pneumonia among HIV-infected persons. As more countries with high HIV prevalence are implementing infant pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (P...
Little information is available about the effect of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) in low-income countries. We measured the effect of these vaccines on invasive pneumococcal disease in The Gam...
Use of the pneumococcal conjugate vaccines among children in the U.S. since 2000 has dramatically reduced pneumococcal disease burden among adults. Significant vaccine-preventable morbidity and mortal...
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).
