    The nasopharyngeal commensal bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae is also a frequent cause of serious infections. Nasopharyngeal colonisation with S. pneumoniae inhibits subsequent re-colonisation by inducing Th17-cell adaptive responses, whereas vaccination prevents invasive infections by inducing...

    This article presents an opinion on preventing ventilator associated pneumonia through the use of oral antiseptic agents. The most common infection acquired by intensive care patients is pneumonia from ventilators. Preventive procedures deal with three broad categories: the prevention of cross...

    Background: Since the use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines PCV7 and PCV13 in children became widespread, invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) has dramatically decreased. Nevertheless, there has been a rise in incidence of Streptococcus pneumoniae non-vaccine serotypes (NVT) colonising the...

    The Streptococcus pneumoniae polysaccharide capsule is an essential virulence factor that varies in structure between serotypes. While certain serotypes are highly invasive, it is unknown why these serotypes frequently cause infection yet others generally cause nasopharyngeal colonisation....
