Systematic Review: Impact of Meningococcal Vaccination on Pharyngeal Carriage of Meningococci

This article, published in Tropical Medicine and International Health, investigates the effect of meningococcal vaccines on pharyngeal carriage of meningococci through a systematic review. The review determines that only a few well-designed trials of the impact of meningococcal vaccines on carriage have been undertaken, and that these studies should be an essential component of the evaluation of new meningococcal vaccines, particularly those introduced to control epidemic meningococcal disease in Africa.
