Transplacental transmission of antitoxic immunity to tetanus
Antitoxic tetanus immunity is transmitted from immune females and is retained in the organism of neonatal rabbits up to the 45th day after birth; it practically disappears by the 60th day. Immunity is transmitted via the transplacental route. The mother's milk does not serve as the source of tetanus antibodies. The progeny of immune males and nonimmune females possessed no tetanus immunity.
