Hib vaccine could help prevent ALL in children

AAP SmartBrief | May 22, 2015

Administering four doses of Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine may help prevent children from developing acute lymphoblastic leukemia, according to a study published in Nature Immunology. "Hib and other childhood infections can cause recurrent and vehement immune responses, which we have found could lead to leukemia, but infants that have received vaccines are largely protected and acquire long-term immunity through very mild immune reactions," study author Markus Müschen said.
