  • Hjálmarsdóttir, Martha Ásdís; Quirk, Sigríður Júlía; Haraldsson, Gunnsteinn; Erlendsdóttir, Helga; Haraldsson, Ásgeir; Kristinsson, Karl G. (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-01-26)
    Background Information on pneumococcal serotype distribution before vaccination is a prerequisite for evaluation of vaccine effect. The aim was to investigate the prevalence of pneumococcal serotypes isolated from middle ear (ME), lower respiratory ...
  • Quirk, Sigríður Júlía; Haraldsson, Gunnsteinn; Erlendsdóttir, Helga; Hjálmarsdóttir, Martha Ásdís; van Tonder, Andries J.; Hrafnkelsson, Birgir; Sigurdsson, Samuel; Bentley, Stephen D.; Haraldsson, Ásgeir; Brueggemann, Angela B.; Kristinsson, Karl G. (American Society for Microbiology, 2018-09-26)
    Vaccination with pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) disrupts the pneumococcal population. Our aim was to determine the impact of the 10-valent PCV on the serotypes, genetic lineages, and antimicrobial susceptibility of pneumococci isolated from ...

    Mutations in genes encoding subunits of the phagocyte NADPH oxidase complex are recognized to cause chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), a severe primary immunodeficiency. Here we describe how deficiency of CYBC1, a previously uncharacterized protein ...
  • Eythorsson, Elias; Sigurdsson, Samuel; Hrafnkelsson, Birgir; Erlendsdóttir, Helga; Haraldsson, Ásgeir; Kristinsson, Karl G (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-10-04)
    Background: Antimicrobial resistance is a public-health threat and antimicrobial consumption is the main contributor. The ten-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PHiD-CV10) was introduced into the Icelandic vaccination program in 2011. The aim ...
  • Eyþórsson, Elías; Sigurdsson, Samuel; Erlendsdóttir, Helga; Hrafnkelsson, Birgir; Kristinsson, Karl G.; Haraldsson, Ásgeir (Wiley, 2019-01-22)
    Aim: The aim was to estimate the impact of the 10-valent pneumococcal vaccine (PHiD-CV) on tympanostomy tube placements (TTP) in children under five years of age in Iceland. Methods: This population-based observational cohort study followed 11 consecutive ...

    Background Since the introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines, vaccine type pneumococcal carriage and disease has decreased world-wide. The aim was to monitor changes in the nasopharyngeal carriage of pneumococci, the distribution of serotypes ...
