Background: In the Republic of Korea (ROK), protein conjugated vaccines (PCV13 and PCV10) in replacement of PCV7 have been used in children since 2010, and then included in the childhood national immunization program (NIP) in 2014. This study investigated indirect effect of PVCs on serotypes in PCV-naïve adult invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) and its clinical implications.

Methods: A prospective observational cohort study was conducted, through the serotype surveillance program following the NIP implementation of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23) for elderly population (≥ 65 years) from 2013 to 2015. Clinical data and pneumococcal isolates from adult IPD patients (≥ 18 years) were collected from 20 hospitals. Clinical characteristics were compared between vaccine-serotype (VT) and nonvaccine-serotype (NVT) groups.

Results: Of a total of 319 IPD patients enrolled, 189 cases (59.2%) were available for serotypes. Among them, the proportion of PCV-naïve cases was 99.5% (188/189) and 189 patients consisted of NVT (n=64, 33.9%) and VT group (n=125, 66.1%). Compared to the previous study in the ROK (2004-2010), the proportion of PCV13 serotypes was decreased (61.4% vs 37.0%, P < 0.001) and PPV23 serotypes were stationary (71.5% vs 65.6%), but NVT serotypes were increased (23.4% vs 33.9%, P=0.033) in our study. The most common serotype was 3 (20.8%) and 34 (23.4%) in VT and NVT group, respectively. VT group had more bacteremic pneumonia (72.0% vs 48.4%, P=0.002). There was no difference of the case fatality rate between NVT and VT groups (29.7% vs 35.2%, P=0.447). Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that chronic kidney disease (odds ratio [OR] 10.26, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.94-54.44, P=0.006), younger age of 18-49 years (OR 4.04, 95% CI 1.29-12.71, P=0.017), deep-seated infection (OR 3.73, 95% CI 1.34-10.39, P=0.012), meropenem resistance (OR 3.21, 95% CI 1.49-6.91, P=0.003) were significantly associated with NVT-IPD cases.

Conclusion: Our study indicates that emerging and expanding NVT-IPD among adults, probably due to indirect herd effect of widespread use of pediatric PCV. Further changes of IPD serotypes might occur and IPD serotypes should be monitored for developing better pneumococcal vaccination policy.
