Pertussis Antibody Transfer to Preterm Neonates After Second- Versus Third-Trimester Maternal Immunization

Published inClinical Infectious Diseases, vol. 64, no. 8, p. 1129-1132
Publication date2017
Abstract

Preterm infants are most vulnerable to pertussis. Whether they might benefit from maternal immunization is unknown. Extending our previous results in term neonates, this observational study demonstrates that second- rather than third-trimester maternal vaccination results in higher birth anti-pertussis toxin titers in preterm neonates.
