Streptococcus pneumoniae polysaccharides conjugated to the outer membrane protein A from Klebsiella pneumoniae elicit protective antibodies.

Abstract

Polysaccharides (PSs) derived from Streptococcus pneumoniae include more than 90 serotypes and differ greatly in their immunogenicity. In addition, immunization with PSs does not induce high affinity antibody production and no memory B-cells are generated. Coupling PSs to carrier proteins has been reported to induce B-cell maturation and to install a B-cell… (More)
