Td Titer - More Information
The Td titer builds on the tetanus titer by testing the diphtheria antibody blood levels.
Diphtheria is a type of infection caused by the bacteria Corynebacterium diphtheriae which is spread by contact with secretions from an infected person. Diphtheria infections are more common around the world than in the United States, largely because diphtheria is included in the routine vaccine series given to children and adults. Diphtheria causes fever and throat discomfort which can progress to more severe symptoms.
