Diphtheria is a bacterial infection caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae affecting the nasal and throat mucous membranes. It is transmitted through close contact through respiratory droplets or exposure to a contaminated object.
Tetanus is a bacterial infection causing the muscle contractions commonly localized in the jaw and neck also referred to as lockjaw. It is caused by Clostridium tetani, a type of bacteria that enters the systemic circulation as spores through puncture wounds, burns, and injuries.
Getting tested for antibodies responding to the causative agents of diphtheria and tetanus provide essential information on monitoring post-vaccination immune responses especially among those who are diagnosed with immunodeficiency disorders.
