Abstract

We report the phase III trial efficacy of 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine against clinical and culture proven otitis media (OM) among Navajo and White Mountain Apache infants. Efficacy was −0.4% (95% CI: −19.4 to 15.6) for clinically-diagnosed OM, 5.1% (95% CI: −51.5 to 40.6) for severe OM, and 64% (95% CI: −34% to 90%) for vaccine serotype pneumococcal OM suggesting that this vaccine is efficacious for pneumococcal OM in this high risk population.
