For the present study, we selected nasopharyngeal samples of the group of children that received 3 vaccinations with PCV-7 (n = 336) and of the group of children that received no vaccinations with PCV-7 (controls) (n = 331).
We used univariate and multivariate linear regression models (function Im and analysis of variance in software package R) to study the effect of vaccination with PCV-7 on microbiota profiles.
In 2007, BC implemented a schedule change reducing the number of recommended doses of PCV-7
for 'healthy infants' from four to three doses (at 2 and 4 months with a booster at 12 months).
We now have demonstrated, to our knowledge for the first time, the facilitating role of PCV-7
in nasopharyngeal acquisition of serotype 19A," said Dr.
The estimated coverage of PCV-7
in Latin America varies from 56%-73% (16, 19, 24, 28, 29).

covers 70% of invasive isolates and is therefore a worthwhile vaccine to roll out, PCV-10 would increase coverage to up to 85%.
Although the incidence of IPD in general has decreased since the introduction of PCV-7
, the emergence of nonvaccine serotypes as a cause of severe disease is becoming more prevalent.
The three groups achieved similar rates of seroprotection for HepB and Hib, and seropositivity for PCV-7
was high in all groups.
Although meningitis cases nationally have declined significantly since the PCV-7
vaccine was approved, the trend was not significant in the Utah data.
4) This is a decrease from almost 25 million visits in 1995, prior to use of PCV-7
With respect to diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and poliovirus antibody responses, the immunogenicity of the combination vaccine coadministered with Hib and PCV-7
"was at least as good as" that achieved with the separate and staggered vaccine schemes, the investigators reported.
