BACKGROUND Moraxella catarrhalis is an important cause of bacterial otitis media, and a vaccine to prevent this disease would be highly desirable. Analysis of the dominant antigens on the surface of M. catarrhalis recognized by the human immune response to infection might aid in such a search. Such analysis would be most informative when studied in the eventual target age group for the vaccine; thus we have studied the immune response to M. catarrhalis in infants with otitis media.
