  • Antibody to the capsular polysaccharide (CP) of Haemophilus influenzae b (Hib) is bactericidal, opsonic, and protective. Minimum protective levels of primarily IgG antibody to Hib CP, calculated from passive immunization studies, have been found to be approximately .06-.15 microgram/ml of serum. The human response to antigenic challenge with the Hib capsule, however, includes production of antibody to Hib CP of different isotypes whose function against Hib is unclear. In order to characterize… CONTINUE READING
