Seroprevalence and titer distributions were elevated in the <0.5-year age group, likely reflecting the presence of maternal antibody in these infants.
Our study showed that the immunization at 40 days of age as first dose and second booster dose at 60 day of age has the best antibody titer and possibility of immunity failure caused by interference of maternal antibody is relatively low.
Interference by maternal antibody is regarded as major cause of vaccination failure in young age (Pollock and Carmichael, 1982).
Drugs suppressing maternal antibody production, removal of maternal antibody (plasmapheresis), decreasing fetal inflammatory response with glucocorticoids that cross the placenta, or blocking antibody production and placental transfer (intravenous gammaglobulin) should be effective, but demonstrating efficacy has remained elusive.
The leftover 5 birds were used to detect the maternal antibody titer.
A rise in concentration or titer by two tubes (four-fold) is considered clinically significant and suggests that the fetal red cells contain the antigen to the corresponding maternal antibody. Once the titer reaches a determined critical level, additional studies such as ultrasound, Doppler sonography, amniocentesis, or cordocentesis may be performed to further indicate the likelihood of progressive anemia indicating the need for intrauterine transfusion, early delivery, or other medical interventions.
To maximize the maternal antibody response and passive antibody transfer to the infant, optimal timing for Tdap administration is between 27 and 36 weeks gestation although Tdap may be given at any time during pregnancy.
Notably, CMV can readily infect the newborn infant, via ingestion of breast milk, even in the setting of passively acquired maternal antibody [17, 107].
Optimally, women should receive T dap between 27 and 36 weeks' gestation, to maximize the maternal antibody response and passive transfer of antibodies to the infant, said Dr.

Despite vaccination 6% children suffered from measles before their first birthday indicating that our children lose their maternal antibody at an early age and therefore, are more vulnerable to disease at an early age.
Presence of IgG and absence of IgM antibody in the infant may reflect passive transfer of maternal antibody to the baby and does not indicate active infection in the baby.
However, this maternal antibody interferes with the vaccine-induced immunity.
Elevated maternal proviral load and high maternal antibody titers have been described as risk factors associated with vertical transmission of HTLV-1 (22).
