Can scrapie titres be calculated accurately from incubation periods?

Abstract

Since endpoint titrations of scrapie material are costly and time-consuming, several workers have estimated titre from the correlation between the incubation period of the disease and the infectivity titre. However, we show here that the relationship between incubation period and titre cannot be assumed to be constant for all scrapie preparations. Our… (More)
