TitleTemporal associations between national outbreaks of meningococcal serogroup W and C disease in the Netherlands and England: an observational cohort study.
Published inLancet Public Health 2017; 2(10):e473-82
PubliekssamenvattingSince 2009, the incidence of meningococcal serogroup W disease has increased rapidly in the UK because of a single strain (the so-called original UK strain) belonging to the hypervirulent sequence type-11 clonal complex (cc11), with a variant outbreak strain (the so-called 2013 strain) emerging in 2013. Subsequently, the Netherlands has had an increase in the incidence of meningococcal serogroup W disease. We assessed the temporal and phylogenetic associations between the serogroup W outbreaks in the Netherlands and England, and the historical serogroup C outbreaks in both countries.
