Antipolysaccharide antibodies in 450 children with otitis media.
We have measured antibodies to pneumococcal and Haemophilus polysaccharides in a prospective study of 450 children aged 2-16 years with otitis media requiring grommets (ear tubes). Pneumococcal antibody levels were significantly higher in the 2-6 year (P < 0.004) and 7-10 year (P < 0.04) study groups in comparison with age-matched controls. There was no difference in Haemophilus antibody levels between the study and control group children for the age groups 2-6 years and 11-16 years. Ha...Expand abstract
