CONCLUSION: The results indicate that perinatal infections and administration of antibiotics depress immunoglobulin secretion in cell cultures. We suggest that in vivo B-cell activity in infected preterm infants, and infants prophylactically receiving antibiotics, could also be depressed and result in decreased immunoglobulin production in these infants.
