  • The immunologic responses of 100 children hospitalized with meningitis due to Haemophilus influenzae type b were measured by the bactericidal antibody assay (BAA) and radioimmunoassay (RIA) for detection of antibody. Short-term (14-17 days after onset of illness) responses were detected by RIA alone in 20 children, by BAA alone in six, and by both tests in 23. The more sensitive RIA detected 20 children who would have been labeled "immunologically unresponsive" had only BAA been used. The… CONTINUE READING
