We studied 55 cases of invasive Hemophilus influenzae type b disease occurring in children at least three weeks after vaccination with type b polysaccharide vaccine. Their mean age at the time of… Expand
Haemophilus influenzae type b polysaccharide vaccines.
A penicillin-resistant pneumococcus.
STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE has been almost uniformly sensitive to pen!cillin, With minimum inhibitory concentrations of 0.05 Fg/m 1 or less. In 1967, the first pariially resistant strain with an MIC of… Expand
Serum opsonic activity after immunization of adults with Haemophilus influenzae type b-diphtheria toxoid conjugate vaccine.
We measured the uptake of radiolabeled Haemophilus influenzae type b by human polymorphonuclear leukocytes. Haemophilus influenzae type b strains were preopsonized in individual sera from six adults… Expand

The development of monoclonal antibodies to cell‐surface antigens has provided method for characterizing distinct subpopulations of T‐cells. In the present study we have quantified peripheral blood… Expand
C4B deficiency is not associated with meningitis or bacteremia with encapsulated bacteria.
The two isotypes of the fourth complement component are C4A and C4B. C4B forms ester bonds more efficiently than C4A and so, in theory, is more likely than C4A to bind to polysaccharide capsules of… Expand

ABSTRACT. Plasma immunoglobulin concentrations of premature infants of birth weight less than 1500 g were measured longitudinally from birth to 10 months chronological age. Infants were divided into… Expand
Clinical conditions associated with defective polymorphonuclear leukocyte chemotaxis.
Impressive numbers of clinical conditions are associated with defective leukocyte chemotaxis. In many, this cellular dysfunction is associated with other abnormalities of the immune response, but in… Expand
