Childhood pneumonia in developing countries
The Lancet Respiratory Medicine | 18 June 2013
…A large part of the approach to control of pneumococcal pneumonia has depended on vaccination programmes. However, more than 90 individual serotypes of the bacteria exist, and effective immunisation against pneumococcus necessitates neutralisation of the specific capsular polysaccharides that stimulate the immune system and cause lung inflammation. Available vaccines have progressively incorporated more serotypes, focusing on those associated with the greatest disease burden, and whole-cell techniques could provide greater immunogenicity. …More importantly, studies in Finland, USA, and The Gambia have shown greater effectiveness of pneumococcal vaccines than would have been expected based on targeted serotypes.
