Clinical Information

Haemophilus influenzae type B (HIB) is an encapsulated gram-negative cocco-bacillary bacterium that can cause devastating disease in young children including meningitis, bacteremia, cellulitis, epiglottitis, pneumonia, and septic arthritis.

 

One of the great advances in modern medicine has been the development of an effective vaccine against HIB. A patient's immunological response to HIB vaccine can be determined by measuring anti-HIB IgG antibody using this EIA technique.
