Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  Neutralization tests on 21 Filipino civilians for Japanese B encephalitis showed 7 with positive indices or 33.3 per cent.
  • 2.  Fourteen of the 17 Japanese prisoners of war whose sera were tested gave positive indices or 82 per cent. These indices were higher than those in the Filipino group.
  • 3.  Fourteen of 29 cattle gave positive indices or 45 per cent; 21 of 23 horses or 91 per cent; 10 of 11 carabaos or 90 per cent and 2 of 8 goats or 25 per cent gave positive neutralization indices.
