    ..meningitidis group C polysaccharides, results consistent with induction of memory B cells. Thus, MF59 may be useful for accelerating and augmenting immunity to polysaccharide-protein conjugate vaccines in infants. ..
  2. Lucas A, Reason D. Polysaccharide vaccines as probes of antibody repertoires in man. Immunol Rev. 1999;171:89-104 pubmed
    ..We discuss how these properties of the Hib PS repertoire could impact immunity to Hib, and we consider the implications of these findings towards understanding the evolution of immunoglobulin germline V genes. ..

    ..MCV vaccination of meningococcal vaccine-naïve adults primes for robust memory antibody responses. There was no evidence of induction of memory by MCV in adults previously vaccinated with MPSV. ..

    ..These data suggest that incorporation of C3d as an adjuvant may overcome shortcomings of the currently licensed aluminum-based vaccine, and may confer protection in the early days following acute anthrax exposure. ..

    ..The Luminex system showed lower limits of detection and increased dynamic range among samples whereas the protein microarrays could be more amenable to miniaturization. Both technologies were capable of sensitive multiplexed detection. ..

    ..salmonis may persist among white seabass following infection, and thus provide a potential reservoir of infection contributing to transmission both within and between fish species in the marine environment...
