Description
 

This test assesses Tetanus Antitoxoid Antibody following booster immunization.

Tetanus is a nervous system disease characterized by severe muscle spasms caused by the toxin tetanospasmin that is produced by Clostridium tetani organisms. The disease is preventable by vaccination with tetanus toxoid (formaldehyde-treated tetanospasmin). Tetanus toxoid is an excellent immunogen; it stimulates development of antitetanus toxoid antibodies.

Subsequent to vaccination, a patient's immunological response may be assessed by determining the presence of tetanus toxoid antibody levels in the serum. An absence of antibody formation postvaccination may relate to immune deficiency disorders, either congenital, acquired, or iatrogenic due to immunosuppressive drugs.
