Respiratory Syncytial Virus Transplacental Antibody Transfer and Kinetics in Mother-Infant Pairs in Bangladesh

This article, published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, summarizes a serological study conducted in Dhaka, Bangladesh that documented efficient transplacental transfer of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-specific antibody from mother to the fetus, which could support a maternal immunization strategy for RSV. Also, higher cord blood antibody titers were associated with protection from serologic infection.
