Fluorescent Vi antibody test in the screening of typhoid carriers.

Abstract

The comparative efficacies of direct bacterial agglutination and immunofluorescent antibody for the estimation of serum Vi antibody were determined in the detection of typhoid carriers. Sera from all 12 typhoid carriers gave significant titers of 1/10 or more in the direct bacterial agglutination test; however, 26 of 119 (21.8%) sera from culture-negative… (More)
