Cost-Effectiveness Comparison of Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccines in Turkish Children

ConclusionsAny difference in price between PHiD-CV and PCV13 is expected to be the key driver of vaccine choice for preventing childhood pneumococcal disease in Turkey. At price parity, PHiD-CV use is likely to be a dominant strategy over the use of PCV13.

In this study H. pylori CagL gene was cloned in pAMJ2008 vector and transferred to Lactococcus lactis MG1363 as the host for CagL antigen production. This recombinant bacterium was orally subjected to mice, and the immune response to CagL was evaluated by ELISA. Intracellular expression of CagL protein was confirmed by Western blot analysis. Mucosal immunization of mice with the recombinant L. lactis significantly stimulated CagL-Specific antibodies: IgA, IgG, cytokine IL-17 and IN-γ. Moreover, the specific anti-CagL IgA response was detected in the feces of immunized mice. These results indicate that CagL of H. pylo...

ConclusionsThis study provides initial perspectives on measles preparedness among Idaho CAHs, despite limited generalizability. Future studies should explore whether self-reported preparedness measures reflect the ability of the CAHs to control measles spread when cases present for care.

CONCLUSION: Non-typeable H. influenzae (NTHi), mostly derived from pneumonia and AOM, were genetically diverse, in contrast to the predominance of H. influenzae type b (Hib) among meningitis cases. The associations between certain STs and β-lactam resistance among NTHi were confirmed. PMID: 29595417 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: K L Ç H, Akyol S, Parkan ÕM, Dinç G, Sav H, Aydemir G Abstract Haemophilus influenzae can cause invasive and severe infections in both adults and children such as otitis media, sinusitis, pneumonia, meningitis and bacteremia. The emerging antibiotic resistance in recent years against ampicillin and several other antibiotics among strains of H. influenzae gives cause for serious concern. Here, we investigate ß-lactamase (BL) activity in clinical isolates of H. influenzae, profile their resistance to antibiotics, and characterize the clonal relationship of the isolates. Antibiotic ...
