Abstract : An application of the agar-gel precipitin-inhibition technique of Ray and Kadull detects Coccidioides immitis antibodies in sera from human clinical cases and experimental animals infected with this organism. The advocated modification of that agar-gel procedure can detect this antibody more consistently and reliably than the complement fixation and double immunodifussion tests.
