Abstract

SUMMARY

The suggestion that antibodies might enhance rabies virus infection of macrophages through opsonization of immune complexes was tested by adaptation of the rapid fluorescent focus inhibition technique for the examination of a macrophage cell line (P388D1). Some enhancement of rabies virus infection was shown. The relationship between such enhancement with the ‘early death’ phenomenon and its occurrence is discussed.
