A new conjugate vaccine against pneumococcal disease



A new conjugate vaccine against pneumococcal disease



Nurse Practitioner 26(5): 52 55-6 59-62



Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly among infants and children. Pneumococcal 7-valent conjugate vaccine (PNCRM7) is the first conjugate vaccine known to prevent most invasive pneumococcal disease in infants and children. PNCRM7, which has a favorable safety profile, provides protection against invasive disease caused by antibiotic-resistant strains of S. pneumoniae, and the vaccine has demonstrated a significant impact on otitis media recurrence. Routine immunization with this vaccine should substantially reduce morbidity and mortality and improve the quality of life for infants, children, and their families.
