Caption: Meningitis B vesicles. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of outer membrane vesicles (OMV) from Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B bacteria, which are being studied for use as a vaccine against the bacterium. OMV form naturally as the bacteria grow. Meningitis B is the most common form of the disease in the UK. It is an obligate human parasite that causes meningococcal meningitis, the inflammation of connective tissue membranes lining the brain and spinal cord, and meningococcal septicaemia (blood poisoning). Both forms of the disease can be fatal if not treated quickly enough.
