Serotype-specific antibodies to rotavirus in human colostrum and breast milk and in maternal and cord blood

Serotype-specific antibodies to rotavirus in human colostrum and breast milk and in maternal and cord blood

Journal of Infectious Diseases 158(2): 477-480

The serotype-specific antibodies to the 4 established serotypes of human rotavirus that were found in colostrum and breast milk, as well as sera from a group of lactating mothers and in cord sera from their infants, were measured in this South Australian study. The percentages of samples of colostrum and breast milk with a titre >=1:400 were determined and presented graphically. Colostral samples had the highest antibody positivity for all serotypes.
