Meningococcal Vaccine Trial
Neisseria meningitidis or meningococcus is a family of germs (bacteria) that can cause meningitis, which is an infection of the surface of the brain. While meningitis is a rare infection, it can be life-threatening and lead to permanent disability. In addition, these germs can also cause an infection of the blood, called sepsis. The different groups in the meningococcus family are indicated by letters, and the most common groups that can cause disease are called A, B, C, W and Y.
