  1. Pneumococcal vaccine trials in Papua New Guinea : relationships between epidemiology of pneumococcal infection and efficacy of vaccine.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Onference on the pathogenesis and prevention of pneumonia in children in developing regions. Bellagio (ITA), 1989-08-21.

    Field trials in Papua New Guinea have shown that pneumococcal capsular polysaccharide vaccine protects children <2 years of age from death due to acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI).

    The vaccine appears to reduce mortality by preventing bacteremia.

    Evidence suggests that highly invasive « adult » pneumococcal serotypes are comparatively more important as a cause of ALRI in developing countries where ALRI-related mortality is higher than in North America.

    Capsular polysaccharide vaccines are more likely to be immunogenic for these serotypes than for the « pediatric » serotypes.
