Abstract:

The agar gel precipitin-inhibition techniques of Ray, Kadull and Shay have been modified to detect Histoplasma capsulatum antibodies in sera from human clinical cases and experimental animals infected with this organism. With the modified procedure antibody was detected more consistently and reliably than with the direct agar gel diffusion test and titers were comparable to those attained by complement-fixation techniques.
