Abstract

A survey of antibody titers was conducted among 100 full-term and 50 premature newborns at Harlem Hospital Center. The overwhelming majority had detectable antibodies to measles, rubella, and poliomyelitis. There were no significant differences between male and female newborns nor between premature and full-term infants. The results suggest that immunization against these agents should not be given during the newborn period, at least in comparable populations.
