Anti-polyribosylribitol phosphate antibody concentrations and avidities in children since the start of Haemophilus influenzae type b immunization of infants in the United Kingdom.

Abstract:

The introduction of routine infant immunization with Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccines in the United Kingdom in 1992 led to a significant reduction in invasive disease due to this organism. Subsequently, between 1999 and 2003 there was an increase in the number of immunized children with Hib infection.
