(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 ...

    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 ...
  • The Global Pneumococcal Sequencing Consortium (2022-02-11)
    Background: Pneumococcal disease outbreaks of vaccine preventable serotype 4 sequence type (ST)801 in shipyards have been reported in several countries. We aimed to use genomics to establish any international links between them. Methods: Sequence data ...
  • Eyþórsson, Elías (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-06-05)
    Streptococcus pneumoniae is a Gram-positive diplococcus that is both a commensal bacterium in the upper respiratory tract of humans, and a common pathogen. The infectious manifestations of pneumococci span a range from benign to serious; from acute ...
