Acute- and convalescent-phase sera from 34 children and 10 young adults were studied to determine if, at what age, and to which antigens of Neisseria meningitidis they respond during disseminated disease. Seven children older than two years of age who were infected with group C or Y strains developed significant increases in both binding and bactericidal antibody. Children infected with group B strains infrequently (eight [31%] of 26) had measurable increases in serum antibody to this capsular… CONTINUE READING
