The present study was undertaken to determine the upper 95% confidence limits (CL) for titres of antibodies to streptolysin O (ASO) and streptococcal DNase B (ADNB) using 741 sera from a general population. The ASO titres in sera from children increased abruptly with increasing age, from a mean of 21 (CL 67) in infants of 3 years or less to 211 (CL 462) in… CONTINUE READING
