The acquisition of anti-pneumococcal capsular polysaccharide Haemophilus influenzae type and tetanus toxoid antibodies, with age, in the UK.
Antibody levels specific for capsular polysaccharides of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and to tetanus toxoid (TT), were measured in serum samples of 750 age-stratified subjects from the UK.
The study subjects comprised healthy adult volunteers and hospitalized children undergoing elective surgery, excluding those with a history of infection or under investigation for immunological or haematological disorders.
These antibody levels were calibrated by comparison with serum pool obtained from healthy adult volunteers, who were immunized with Hib polyribose-phosphate vaccine (Merieux).
The data are intended to provide reference ranges to assist in the interpretation of specific antibody measurements in the clinical setting.
