Meningococcal (Meningitis) Vaccine
Overview of Meningitis Vaccine Medical Research Study
This study will explore an investigational vaccine that might help defend the body against different types of germs that cause meningitis.
What is Meningitis?
According to Mayo, Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes (meninges) surrounding your brain and spinal cord. The swelling from meningitis typically triggers symptoms such as headache, fever and a stiff neck.
Most cases of meningitis in the United States are caused by a viral infection, but bacterial, parasitic and fungal infections are other causes. Some cases of meningitis improve without treatment in a few weeks. Others can be life-threatening and require emergency antibiotic treatment.
Seek immediate medical care if you suspect that someone has meningitis. Early treatment of bacterial meningitis can prevent serious complications.
