Placental Transfer of Respiratory Syncytial Virus Antibody Among HIV-Exposed, Uninfected Infants

Background: Maternal human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is associated with lower placental transfer of antibodies specific to several childhood pathogens. Our objective for this study was to evaluate the effect of maternal HIV infection on the placental transfer of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-neutralizing antibodies.
