Cord blood testing allows for data collection from transplacental passage of blood borne pathogens and may reduce mother-to-child transmission when used in conjunction with antiretroviral pharmaceuticals.
The pathogenesis in this condition is transplacental shift of maternal antibodies into the foetal circulation, which acts against the acetylcholine receptors in the foetus, thereby inhibiting their function and causing injury to foetal muscle, thereby causing weakened foetal movements in utero and development of contractures.
