A solid-phase C1q radioimmunoassay was used to test for immune complexes (ICs) in sera obtained longitudinally from patients recovering from acute, uncomplicated measles and rubella virus infections. ICs were detected in 12 (18.5%) of 65 sera from 14 measles patients who did not have prolonged IC formation. Of 12 IC-positive measles sera, 9 were collected 4 weeks or more after rash onset. Transient appearance of detectable circulating ICs occurred sooner in 22 rubella patients who did not have… CONTINUE READING
