Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The susceptibility to rubella of a group of Mexican females of childbearing age was determined. Members of the group were selected based on the highest probability of having been exposed to the virus they were older than 15, and from a low socio-economic urban stratum. Anti-viral antibodies were determined by hemagglutination inhibition. Concentration was expressed as International Units of IgG anti-rubella hemagglutinin (IU). Antibody concentrations lower than 15.6 IU/ml were regarded as non-protective. A 16% susceptibility was found.
