Abstract : The agar-gel precipitin-inhibition technique of Ray and Kadull can be used to detect plague antibodies in human and animal sera after a series of plague vaccine inoculations or after exposure to Pasteurella pestis. Determination of the minimum reacting concentrations of the plague antigen and antibody reagents, methods for combining reagents, and length of incubation periods are discussed.
