Effect of HIV-exposure and timing of antiretroviral treatment initiation in children living with HIV on antibody persistence and memory responses to Haemophilus influenzae type b and pneumococcal polysaccharide-protein conjugate vaccines.
Background: We investigated the effect of in utero HIV-exposure, timing of antiretroviral treatment (ART) initiation, and ART interruption on memory responses and persistence of immunity induced by pneumococcal (PCV) and Haemophilus influenzae type b (HibCV) polysaccharide-protein conjugate vaccines.
