A clinical study was carried out to evaluate the persistence of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) antibodies 2 and 3 years after a primary vaccination series (three-dose regimen), and to assess the antibody response to a booster vaccination with FSME-IMMUN. Volunteers (N = 347, 18-67 years) who had received two doses of either FSME-IMMUN or Encepur adults and a(More)
BACKGROUND Immunogenicity of the candidate 10-valent pneumococcal non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae protein D-conjugate vaccine (PHiD-CV) was assessed when coadministered with other routine pediatric vaccines including different Neisseria meningitidis serogroup C conjugate vaccines. METHODS One thousand five hundred forty-eight healthy infants received,(More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae is one of the leading pathogens causing invasive disease in children worldwide. We have previously published a study on nasopharyngeal carriage in children from different settings in Poland [1]. Here, we present results of the prospective study on laboratoryconfirmed invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) and S. pneumoniae serotype(More)
UNLABELLED According to the WHO pneumococcal infections are the most common cause of morbidity and mortality in children. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to establish the prevalence of pneumococcal isolates belonging to serotypes covered by 7-valent conjugated pneumococcal vaccine (7vPCV) isolated from invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) in the(More)
A prospective, randomised, multicentre, single-blind phase 3 study was performed to assess the safety of a vaccination schedule consisting of two vaccinations (21-35 days apart) with the tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) vaccine FSME-IMMUN "adults" (five consecutive lots) in comparison to another licensed TBE vaccine (Encepur), with polygeline) (two lots) in(More)
13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) includes polysaccharide conjugates from six pneumococcal serotypes in addition to those in the licensed 7-valent vaccine, thereby offering expanded protection against pneumococcal disease. The phase 3 trial reported here was conducted per a regulatory requirement to evaluate the immunogenicity, safety, and(More)
BACKGROUND Combination vaccines offer protection against multiple diseases with fewer injections. This study evaluated the immunogenicity and safety of an investigational diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and meningococcal serogroup C (MenC) heptavalent combination vaccine (heptavalent(More)
The potential value of the nitric oxide (NO) level as a prognostic marker in human brain diseases is investigated. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) collected from neurological patients was examined for NO content using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. In adult patients with meningitis, the level of NO was higher than that in other groups of(More)
Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is found in limited endemic foci in Poland. Lack of diagnosis limits disease detection in non-endemic provinces. In 2009, we enhanced TBE surveillance to confirm the location of endemic foci and inform vaccination policy. In 105 hospitals located in 11/16 provinces, we identified suspected TBE cases through admission ICD-10(More)
To investigate long-term antibody persistence following the administration of the 10-valent pneumococcal non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae protein D conjugate vaccine (PHiD-CV), we present results of 2 follow-up studies assessing antibody persistence following 2 3+1 schedules up to 4 (NCT00624819 - Study A) and 5 years (NCT00891176 - Study B) post-booster(More)
