Concentrations of IgA, IgG, IgM, .alpha.1-antitrypsin, C3 (complement component 3), C4, ceruloplasmin, haptoglobin and transferrin were determined by kinetic nephelometry in the fasting blood serum of 88 healthy, mature newborns (.male. = 46, .female. = 42) and of 50 healthy adults (.male. = 12, .female. = 38). The age specific comparison showed that all 9 examined proteins had significantly lower levels in the newborns. Sex specific differences were not detected in the group of newborns.
