I want to try to find out more about the possiblity that there is a genetic predisposition to contracting meningitis. My husband had it as a child, our oldest son died of it at 17 and his sister contracted it almost exactly a year later at 16 but thankfully without becoming too seriously ill thanks to our anxiety and the quick work of th hospital in response. We have two other children and it feels that there may be a propensity to the disease. We would like to know more about the trials that were being carried out but more importantly whether there is any way to let health services know to take 'flu' type symptoms seriously in our kids just in case. My younger daughter goes to uni next year and I am fearful for her - and indeed for them all. Any info / views welcome
