Directly from China: High Predictability for Measles Antibody Dynamics Discernible From Birth

At the individual level, there is high predictability for measles antibody dynamics from birth, according to a study published online May 13 in Nature Microbiology.

Wei Wang, from the Key Laboratory of Public Health Safety in Shanghai, and colleagues reconstructed antibody trajectories from birth by combining serological data from 1,505 individuals (aged 0 to 12 years) in a mother-infant cohort and in a child cohort from Hunan, China, with empirical models. Participants had complete measles vaccination records and antibody measurements.
