9 Pneumococcal Global Serotype Project (< 5 years age) 1980 – 2007 Pneumococcal Global Serotype Project (< 5 years age) 1980 – Johnson et al 2010Justification: 800,000 children die per year* IPD > 90% developing countries (Africa, Asia, Latin America).* Findings1. Six to eleven serotypes cause more than 70% IPD2. Seven commonest 1,5,6A,6B, 14, 19F, 23F.3. Serotype global ranking 14, 6B, 1, 23F, 5, 19F, 6A, 19A, 9V, 18C, 2, 4, 7F, 12F, 3, 12A. 8, 46, 15B, 454.

10 Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccines (PCV) Capsular polysaccharide + CRM197 = PCV 1. PCV 7 (4,6B, 9V, 14, 18C, 19F, 23F) 2. PCV 10 (Addition: 1, 5, 7F) 3. PCV 13 (Addition: 3, 6A, 19A) - Conjugate vaccine immunogenic in 2 months of age - Serotype specific efficacy after 4th dose - Vaccine schedule: 2, 4, 6, months of age, 4th dose at 15 months (USA) - Protects against meningitis, pneumonia, bacteremia, otitis media. Black et al., 2002.
11 UNITED KINGDOM PCV HISTORY 2002 PCV available, recommended for at risk groups under 2 years 2003 PCV recommended for > 65 years old 2004 PCV for at risk children under 5 years of age 2006 PCV added to routine childhood immunization program
12 POST LICENSE SURVEILLANCE (USA) (as part of universal infant immunization) 1. Reduction in invasive and non-invasive disease due to vaccine serotypes in vaccinated and older unvaccinated population (herd immunity) 2. Fall in rate of penicillin-resistant pneumococcal infections. 3. Small increase in invasive disease due to non-vaccine serotypes (Serotype Replacement) Black et al., 2004; Whitney et al., 2003
13 UN ASSEMBLY 2010 22ND SEPTEMBER MDG RESOLUTION “Every woman, Every child” – Mr. Ban Ki – moon 1. Saving sixteen million women by 2015, prevent 33 million unwanted pregnancies 2. Protect 120 million children from pneumonia, 88 million from stunting. - Stakeholders – governments, policy makers, donor countries, NGO’s, communities, health workers, business sector, professional associations, academic/ research institutions. Nigerian commitment and endorsement 2010 – 2015 as part of National Health Plan: National Vision US dollars per capital, 5% - 15% Federal, State, Local Government Budget.
14 EXPERT COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION PCV 13 VACCINATION IN NIGERIA Routine immunization of children in Nigeria in a three or four dosage schedule at 6 weeks to 5 years of ageVulnerable population such as sickle cell disease patients at any ageHIV infected children and adultsElderly people aged 65 years and aboveOther major disease conditions such as malignancies, renal failure, nephrotic syndrome, liver cirrhosis, diabetes mellitus, alcoholism and chronic lung diseases

19 FOUR MAJOR VIRULENCE FACTORS Capsular polysaccharides – Antiphagocytic and Anti-complementPneumolysin – Inhibits lymphocyte proliferation and neutrophil chemotaxisIgA1 protease – Cleaves submucosal IgAAutolysin – breaks down peptidoglycan of cell wall to aid release of pneumolysin
