The characteristics of this first outbreak reported on November 19, 1993, are described in this paper. It is shown(More)
IgG, IgM and albumin levels in sera from neonates with open neural tube defects (NTD), other congenital malformations, and matched controls were measured, as were levels in sera from their mothers. Neonates with NTD had significantly lower serum IgG levels than 22 control neonatal sera. On the other hand, the mothers of these neonates with NTD had elevated(More)
