AbstractSixteen autologous stem cell transplant recipients received three vaccinations with conjugated haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine. Quantitative and qualitative aspects of the antibody response were studied. The vaccination schedule resulted in high antibody response rates and functional maturation of antibodies, as measured by antibody avidity and phagocytosis-inducing capacity.
