Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine

An polyvalent vaccine used to prevent infection by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae. Pneumococcal polyvalent vaccine contains highly purified capsular antigens from the 23 most prevalent or invasive pneumococcal types of Streptococcus pneumoniae to ensure cross-protection. Following vaccination, protective capsular type-specific antibody levels typically develop by the third week; serotype-specific antibody levels generally decline after 5-10 years. [from NCI]

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common, complex disorder associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. COPD is defined by irreversible airflow obstruction due to chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and/or small airways disease. Airflow obstruction is typically determined by reductions in quantitative spirometric indices, including forced expiratory volume at 1 second (FEV1) and the ratio of FEV1 to forced vital capacity (FVC) (Silverman et al., 2002; Celedon et al., 2004). [from GTR]
