Prevention of Systemic Infections, Especially Meningitis, Caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b

This study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, examines the impact of the Hib vaccine on public health and implications for other polysaccharide-based vaccines. The principles derived from the use of the Hib conjugate vaccines, along with studies of other capsulated pathogens, should allow the rapid inclusion of new polysaccharide-based conjugates into routine vaccination schedules of infants, and should help to realize further reductions in serious systemic infectious diseases.
