Rabies neutralizing antibody concentrations in serum (SRNA) elicited by experimental post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) regimens are used to assess their potential clinical efficacy. Although PEP with human rabies immunoglobulin (HRIG) plus human diploid-cell culture vaccine (HDCV) is almost completely protective, the limited availability of these components(More)
The beneficial effect of passive immunization for post-exposure rabies prophylaxis is associated with the appearance of serum neutralizing antibody (SNA) earlier than occurs with vaccine alone. We compared the SNA response and the side-effects in 30 previously unimmunized healthy volunteers given a commercially available human rabies immunoglobulin (HRIG)(More)
Five tetanus toxoids of different manufacture and of different concentrations were used to determine the most effective formulation and strength of toxoid for the production in human volunteers of sustained high levels of tetanus antitoxin suitable for the production of human tetanus immune globulin. The most satisfactory results were obtained with a fluid,(More)
A method is described using double diffusion with a perspex template for determining tetanus antitoxin levels in the plasma of volunteers who have been hyperimmunized with tetanus toxoid for the purpose of producing human tetanus immune globulin. This test is simple to perform, economical, sentitive, reproducible and is in excellent agreement with the(More)
