Haemophilus Influenzae

Common Name(s)

Haemophilus Influenzae

Haemophilus Influenzae is an infectious bacterium that can cause problems for many systems of the body. There are six types (a-f) of the bacterium that can cause serious infections in infants and children under the age of five. The bacteria are passed from person to person through direct contact or respiratory droplets from coughing or sneezing. Haemophilus influenzae are most dangerous when they have infected the bloodstream (bacteremia), lungs (pneumonia), or brain (meningitis). Each of these infections correlates to a different set of symptoms. Haemophilus influenzae infections can be treated with antibiotics. In some severe cases, hospitalization may occur as well.

Evidence of functional cell-mediated immune responses to nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae in otitis-prone children.
 

Author(s): Elke Seppanen, Dino Tan, Karli J Corscadden, Andrew J Currie, Peter C Richmond, Ruth B Thornton, Lea-Ann S Kirkham

Journal:

 

Otitis media (OM) remains a common paediatric disease, despite advances in vaccinology. Susceptibility to recurrent acute OM (rAOM) has been postulated to involve defective cell-mediated immune responses to common otopathogenic bacteria. We compared the composition of peripheral blood ...

Impact of Haemophilus influenzae type b conjugate vaccination on hospitalization for invasive disease in children fifteen years after its introduction in Italy.
 

Author(s): Domenico Martinelli, Chiara Azzari, Paolo Bonanni, Susanna Esposito, Elisabetta Franco, Giancarlo Icardi, Gianvincenzo Zuccotti, Rosa Prato

Journal: Vaccine. 2017 11;35(46):6297-6301.

 

In Italy, Hib conjugate vaccine was introduced for infants in 1999 and included in the DTaP-HBV-IPV-Hib combination in 2001, with an uptake of 83.4% in 2002, >90% by 2005, and >95% by 2011. We estimated the impact of Hib vaccination on hospitalizations for H. influenzae invasive disease ...

Epidemiology of invasive pneumococcal and Haemophilus influenzae diseases in Northwestern Ontario, Canada, 2010-2015.
 

Author(s): Vic Eton, Annette Schroeter, Len Kelly, Michael Kirlew, Raymond S W Tsang, Marina Ulanova

Journal: Int. J. Infect. Dis.. 2017 Dec;65():27-33.

 

North American indigenous populations experience a high burden of invasive bacterial infections. Because Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae have multiple antigenic variants, the existing vaccines cannot prevent all cases. This study addresses the current epidemiology ...

Insights on persistent airway infection by non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
 

Author(s): Christian P Ahearn, Mary C Gallo, Timothy F Murphy

Journal: Pathog Dis. 2017 Jun;75(4):.

 

Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is the most common bacterial cause of infection of the lower airways in adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Infection of the COPD airways causes acute exacerbations, resulting in substantial morbidity and mortality. ...

The Lung Immune Response to Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (Lung Immunity to NTHi).
 

Author(s): Paul T King, Roleen Sharma

Journal: J Immunol Res. 2015 ;2015():706376.

 

Haemophilus influenzae is divided into typeable or nontypeable strains based on the presence or absence of a polysaccharide capsule. The typeable strains (such as type b) are an important cause of systemic infection, whilst the nontypeable strains (designated as NTHi) are predominantly ...
