Current and future trends in immunization against meningitis.
The progress in vaccines for Haemophilus influenzae type b infection is followed; it is the disadvantages of pure polysaccharide vaccines that have stimulated the development of the present generation of polysaccharide-protein conjugated vaccines.
From extensive clinical trials it is apparent that these are very effective in preventine disease in children.
Conjugated haemophilus vaccines were introduced into the routine immunization schedules in the UK in Autumn 1992.
Meningococcal A and C polysaccharide vaccines, effective for epidemic disease, are only now being developed in a protein conjugated form with the prospect of protecting young children and producing durable immunity.
