The Ontogeny of the Immune Response: The Role of Maternal Factors
The newborn infant must be capable of coping with the many microorganisms to which it is exposed after birth. Most of the contact between the neonate and the microorganisms occurs on mucous membranes, which represent extensive surfaces of thin lining protecting the integrity of the host. For the understanding of the host-parasite relationship in the young infant and the ontogeny of immunity, we need to determine what factors microorganisms might use to colonize and possibly invade the mucosal membranes.
