This study demonstrates the feasibility of using quantitative real time PCR to measure genomic bacterial load in the nasopharynx of children with invasive meningococcal disease and shows that these loads are exceptionally high (median 6.6 × 105 (range 1.2 × 105–1.1 × 108) genome copies of Neisseria meningitidis per swab).
