BACKGROUND A deficient antibody response to polysaccharide antigens is determined by measuring the response to the 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine. However, the diagnosis of this specific antibody deficiency is hampered by the lack of sufficient data and standardized testing of the response to pneumococcal polysaccharides. METHODS All patients evaluated in our allergy/immunology clinic for recurrent respiratory infections between 1995 and 1997 without immunoglobulin, IgG… CONTINUE READING
