The influence of unheated guinea-pig serum on the neutralization of Semliki Forest virus by various antisera

  • P. M. Osterrieth (a1)

Extract

The neutralization of a constant dose of Semliki Forest virus by various doses of different antisera was studied. The presence of complement (1/200, v/v) in the neutralization mixture inhibited the neutralization by high concentration of antiserum and somewhat potentiated neutralization by low serum concentration. Because the experiments were biased towards a measure of irreversible neutralization, the inhibition observed in the presence of complement appeared to be an inhibition of irreversible neutralization. This inhibition was interpreted as a dissociation of a complement binding virus–antibody complex. The antibodies involved appeared to be virus-specific.
