Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) capsular polysaccharide (PS) conjugated to tetanus toxoid (PRP-T) was given at 4 and 6 months of age and anti-Hib PS antibody response to the first and second dose of PRP-T was compared in groups that received diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine either simultaneously with PRP-T (34 infants) or separately at 3,4 and 5 months of age (49 infants).
The geometric mean anti-Hib PS antibody concentration after the first dose of PRP-T given at 4 months of age was eightfold higher if the infants primed with DTP at 3 months of age than if the first dose of DTP was given together with the first dose of PRP-T (0.81 mug ml-1 vs 0.11 mug ml-1).
The positive influence of DTP priming was seen also after the second dose of PRP-T given at 6 months of age (7.55 mug ml-1 vs 3.45 mug ml-1).
