Kinetics of maternal antibodies against rubella and varicella in infants

, : Kinetics of maternal antibodies against rubella and varicella in infants. Vaccine 29(11): 2222-2226

Kinetics of maternal rubella and varicella antibodies in 213 mother-infant pairs are described in a longitudinal study in Belgium. Blood samples are taken at 7 time points (week 36 of pregnancy, birth (cord), 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months), and analyzed for anti-rubella IgG and anti-varicella IgG by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). A generalized exponential model is used to analyse maternal antibody decay in infants. Model based, the mean duration of passive immunity is 2.1 months for rubella and 2.4 months for varicella. Infants are susceptible at young age for rubella, a disease with high vaccination coverage, as well as for varicella, an endemic disease in Western Europe.

A moderate hypoxemia within 3 hr. does not affect the content of adenylic system components of skeletal muscles in albino rats. The content of ATP and to a lesser degree of ADP decreases in heart without a corresponding increase in AMP content.
