  • Abstract:

    Fixation of complement bas been obtained using antigens prepared from suckling mouse brains and antisera from hyperimmune guinea-pigs. With horsesickness viruses the complement fixation test is less type specific than the neutralization test and no antigenic differentiation between the seven heterotypic strains tested was possible. The value of the complement fixation test in the diagnosis of the disease is discussed.
