Abstract

Summary

Extraction with 0·4 per cent. rivanol, at H 9·0, provides a rapid and economical method of removing non-specific inhibitors of rubella virus HA from human serum without loss of specific antibody; natural agglutinins for pigeon erythrocytes are largely removed. Serum HI antibody titres are comparable to those obtained with the dextran sulphate-CaCl extraction method.

Possible sources of error in the HI test due to the method of serum extraction are discussed.
