Brief Summary:

Comparison of the sensibility and specificity of 3 different serological tests and evaluation of chicken pox immunity in pregnant women.

Secondary goals :

  • Correlation memory / Immunity;
  • Prevalence of VZV immunity in pregnant women;
  • Evaluation of cellular and humoral immunity in cases with discrepancy between tests or between test and memory;
  • Evaluation of acceptability of vaccination in the post partum period in non immune patients.

Methods Not randomized prospective study,

Number of patients : 400 Duration : 36 months Inclusion criteria : pregnant women >18years old, agree to participate (written consent) Exclusion criteria: auto immune disease, HIV +, grafted patients

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate sensitivity and specificity in negative and dubious zone for the assessment of the serology of anti VZV immunity [ Time Frame: 35 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. frequency of immunity detecting depending on whether the patient remember having varicella, have been in contact with next of kin with varicella or been vaccinated against varicella or not [ Time Frame: up to 35 weeks ]
  2. Percentage of women accepting the vaccination in case of negative history [ Time Frame: day during the first visit ]
