    Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV)—known as Pneumovax 23 (PPV)—is the first pneumococcal vaccine derived from a capsular polysaccharide, and an important landmark in medical history. The polysaccharide antigens were used to induce type-specific antibodies that enhanced opsonization, phagocytosis, and killing of Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcal) bacteria by Pregnancy category: AU: B2, US: C (Risk not ruled out).

American Academy of Pediatrics. Pneumococcal InfectionsIn: Kimberlin DW, Brady MT, Jackson MA, Long SS, eds. Red Book®: REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON INFECTIOUS DISEASES. American Academy of Pediatrics; ; Pneumococci are a type of streptococcus bacteria. The bacteria spread through contact with people who are ill or by healthy people who carry the bacteria in the back of their nose.

Pneumococcal infections can be mild or severe. The most common types of infections are. How the diagnosis is made depends upon where the infection is. Doctors consider some of these infections “invasive.” Invasive disease means that germs invade parts of the body that are normally free from germs.

For example, pneumococcal bacteria can invade the bloodstream, causing bacteremia, and the tissues and fluids covering the brain and spinal cord, causing meningitis.

When this happens, disease. Pneumococcal infections are caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, a gram-positive, catalase-negative organism commonly referred to as pneumococcus.S pneumoniae is the most common cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), bacterial meningitis, bacteremia, and otitis media, as well as an important cause of sinusitis, septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, peritonitis, and endocarditis.

A pneumococcal infection is an infection caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae, which is also called the pneumococcus. pneumoniae is a common member of the bacterial flora colonizing the nose and throat of 5–10% of healthy adults and 20–40% of healthy children.

However, it is also a cause of significant disease, being a leading cause of pneumonia, bacterial meningitis, and Specialty: Respirology, neurology. Pneumococcal infections can cause significant morbidity following HSCT. 7, 44, 50 The incidence of invasive pneumococcal infections is markedly elevated after allogeneic transplant, especially when the post-transplant course is complicated by chronic GvHD.

7, 50 While autologous transplant recipients have a lower risk of invasive pneumococcal. Streptococcus pneumoniae remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

It causes a variety of diseases, ranging from mild otitis media to invasive disease, including sepsis and meningitis. Colonization of the nasopharynx is a prerequisite for invasive pneumococcal disease and also an important step in the development of antimicrobial resistance.

The pneumococcal vaccine will not protect your child from infections that are caused by another germ. How are pneumococcal infections treated. People with serious pneumococcal infections need to take antibiotics to get better.

But in some serious infections even with antibiotics, the germ can cause permanent damage. Pneumococcal Infections Information. Pneumococcal Infections Quick Fact.

Pneumococcal Disease. Many people have never heard of pneumococcal [noo-muh-kok-uhl] disease. But if you have asthma, you should know how to protect yourself against it.

Having asthma makes you more likely to this get this type of infection, which can lead to serious illness and even death. Pneumococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection. Intramuscular or intravenous immunoglobulin administration may be useful for preventing pneumococcal infection in children with congenital or acquired immunodeficiency diseases, including those with HIV infection, who have recurrent, serious bacterial infections (i.e., two or more serious bacterial infections {e.g., bacteremia, meningitis, or.

Although preferred treatment for pneumococcal infections is a beta-lactam or macrolide antibiotic, treatment has become more challenging because resistant strains have emerged. Strains highly resistant to penicillin, ampicillin, and other beta-lactams are common worldwide.

The most common predisposing factor to beta-lactam resistance is use of. Abstract. The pneumococcus (Streptococcus pneumoniae) is a major cause of pneumonia and meningitis worldwide.
