The percentage of circulating neonatal T cells of this phenotype is approximately 90%, while the percent in the adult circulation is 60% [17]. This phenotypic difference is significant because memory T cells (CD45RO+ , CD29hi ), are able to migrate to sites of inflammation, are less dependent on costimulatory molecules for proper activation, proliferate more rapidly and produce cytokines more efficiently [49]. These attributes allow for a rapidly expanded T cell response with antigenic rechallenge.

These differences help explain the agespecific risk for development of invasive disease with these bacteria. 4 Summary Each component of the immune system matures from conception to adulthood. Some of the components function at adult levels at the time of birth, while others do not fully mature until late childhood. Many factors contribute to the observed immaturity of the developing immune system, including an inability to mount an appropriate antibody response to vaccines, slower institution of antigen-specific immunity, lower levels of some immune-activating substances, and no previous exposure to certain antigens.

5) although the repertoire of IgG, especially IgG2a does not achieve an adult phenotype until after 6–12 months of age [51]. B cells The phenotype of neonatal B cells, including expression of surface markers (CD5+ ) may reflect persistence of cells involved in regulation of the developing immune system. These CD5+ cells are self-renewing, in contrast to conventional B cells that must be replenished from the bone marrow, and often produce antibodies against self-antigens. Additionally, some neonatal B cells express IgA and IgG on the cell surface in addition to IgM and IgD, the typical pattern of adult B cells.
