Abstract

In a study of neonatal and maternal sera, bactericidal antibody to Hemphilus influenzae B was demonstrated in only 10 per cent of newborn infants (cord blood) and in 25 per cent of mothers. These data represent a reversal of the findings of Fothergill and Wright in 1933, when 90 per cent of the blood from neonates was shown to have bactericidal antibody to this organism. A shift in neonatal susceptibility to H. influenzae is suggssted by these results.
