The aim of this study is to evaluate analytical methods such as ELISA and OPKA that measure the activity of vaccine-induced pneumococcal antibodies. After validation of ELISA and OPKA, pneumococcal antibodies were measured by ELISA and OPKA in paired samples before and after immunization (pneumococcal PS vaccine) in children, adults and elderly.
To evaluate the immune response to the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine in the elderly, samples from children, young adults and elderly were obtained before and one month after vaccination. The quantitative and qualitative response to the vaccine were measured by the ELISA and opsonophagocytic killing assay for eight vaccine type serotypes (4, 6B, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, 23F) and one vaccine-related serotype (6A).

Purpose: To study the immune response of the newly licensed pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) in comparison to the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV) to determine if a significan...
To test the hypothesis that immune responses to 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV-23) could be improved in Alaska Native elders by immune priming with 7-valent pneumococca...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of 13-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine when given concomitantly with seasonal inactivated influenza vaccine...
The purpose of this study is to learn whether or not giving a tetanus/diphtheria vaccination ("tetanus shot") before giving pneumococcal vaccine makes the pneumococcal vaccine more effecti...
Patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)have had very poor humoral responses to pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV). The vaccine in which pneumococcal polysaccharide antigens...
The Canadian National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends use of 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine and 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine in a sequential schedule (P...
Critically ill hospitalized patients are at increased risk of infection so we assessed the immunogenicity of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) administered within six days of inju...
Streptococcus pneumoniae is the leading cause of bacterial pneumonia. Although this is a vaccine preventable disease, S. pneumoniae still causes over 1 million deaths per year, mainly in children unde...
Streptococcus pneumoniae causes morbidity and mortality among all ages in The Netherlands. To reduce this burden, infants in The Netherlands receive the 10-valent pneumococcal conjugated vaccine (PCV1...
In 2012, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) in series with 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) for at-risk...
A pneumococcal vaccine which 7 pneumococcal serotypes (6B, 14, 19F, 23F, 18C, 4, 9V), each conjugated individually to the outer membrane protein complex of NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS.
A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.
A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)
A bacterial vaccine for the prevention of brucellosis in man and animal. Brucella abortus vaccine is used for the immunization of cattle, sheep, and goats.
A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had mumps or been immunized with live mumps vaccine. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
