Abstract

Australian indigenous infants experience the highest incidence of chronic suppurative and acute otitis media in the world with many babies developing disease in the early postnatal period. Streptococcus pneumoniae is the major cause of otitis media in this population. Infants are protected against bacterial disease in the first months of life by passive transfer of maternal antibody across the placenta during the late stages of gestation. We hypothesized that reduced passive immunity may contribute to increased disease risk in this population. We compared the concentrations and function of serotype-specific IgG in cord serum from Australian indigenous neonates and Gambian neonates, the latter experiences a similar socioeconomic status to Australian indigenous neonates.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 January 2014.
All research outputs
#11,091,528
of 12,473,890 outputs
Outputs from The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal
#3,853
of 4,365 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#198,611
of 238,214 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal
#84
of 129 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,473,890 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,365 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.3. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 238,214 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 129 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
