Nasopharyngeal Carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae in Pneumonia-Prone Age Groups in Semarang, Java Island, Indonesia

This article, published in PLOS One, presents results from a population-based survey conducted to investigate nasopharyngeal carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae in Semarang, Indonesia. The authors conclude that the limited coverage of commercially available vaccines against the serotypes found in this population, and the high proportion of non-susceptibility to penicillin and cotrimoxazol suggest the need for region-specific information and strategies to control S. pneumoniae.
