Abstract:

H.I. antibody response to a single injection of the 1981 influenza vaccine, which had been increased in potency from 7 to 15 micrograms of hemagglutinin of each component, was measured in 81 recruits. The response to the H3N2 and H1N1 components was excellent. Response to the influenza B component was mediocre when measured with whole virus BSingapore79 antigen, but excellent when tested with ether-split antigen. This report discusses Antibody Response to Vaccination, Hemagglutination inhibiting antibody response, Complement fixation tests Incidence of Febrile Respiratory Disease Comparison of Febrile U.R.I. Incidence in Recent and Earlier Years Outbreak of H1N1 Influenza A Outbreak of Influenza B Antibody Response in Cases of Influenza Comments on Vaccine Effectiveness Comparison of Different Laboratory Procedures for Diagnosis of Influenza Estimates of Protective H.I. Antibody Levels Comparison of Severity in H1N1 Influenza A and in Influenza B Analysis of Febrile U.R.I. by Etiology Antibody Response to AShanghai3180.
