Nasopharyngeal Microbial Interactions in the Era of Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccination

This article, published in Vaccine, reviews data on co-colonization of pathogens in the nasopharynx, focusing on Streptococcus pneumoniae and the impact of pneumococcal vaccination. The authors conclude that pneumococcal vaccination has not had a sustained impact on Streptococcus aureus carriage, but it is associated with an increase in non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae in acute otitis media aetiology.
