Resumo: In a study of older adults, first and second doses of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PN23) induced IgG increases for all 8 vaccine serotypes tested. Participants (N=143, mean age 76 years) were re-enrolled to study antibody levels after ten years, and safety and immunogenicity of another PN23 dose. Ten years after first or second doses, mean IgG concentrations exceeded vaccine-naïve levels for 7 of 8 serotypes tested. Second and third doses administered at this time were generally well tolerated and were immunogenic, inducing similar postvaccination levels. Immunogenicity is preserved after multiple PN23 doses without evidence of a lower than expected immune response (i.e., without hyporesponsiveness).
