Studies on poliomyelitis virus: III. The use of ultra-violet light as an additional means of inactivation of formalinized vaccine

  • J. W. F. Hampton (a1) and A. Polson (a1)

Extract

The inactivation rates of tissue-culture polio virus have been determined and these have been applied to the irradiation of formalinized vaccine, as an additional inactivation process, using a simple irradiator.

The antigenic potency of the vaccine was apparently unimpaired.

We wish to thank the late Prof. van den Ende for his keen interest and criticism; Dr H. Malherbe and his staff for carrying out many of the titrations; Dr P. D. Winter for co-operation in irradiating samples of vaccine, and Margaret Pakes for invaluable technical assistance.
