Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The tetanus antitoxin titres of five tetanus cases treated with 6,000-45,000 IU of human immune globulin and 2-4 doses of adsorbed tetanus toxoid were followed during 1 year. A typical response to the second injection of toxoid might be masked by the passively administered antibodies. The rise in titre after the third injection of toxoid was of the same magnitude as in patients receiving only active immunization. Hence the possible impediment by large doses of human immune globulin does not seem to play any practical role in complete immunization with three doses of tetanus toxoid.
