Abstract

Circulating interferon was found in volunteers immunized with 3.0 ml and 1.0 ml doses of human diploid cell strain (HDCS) rabies vaccines. Peak interferon titres were observed 17--25 hours after primary vaccination and the response diminished upon revaccination. The response was dose-related and did not correlate with the antigenic value of the vaccines or with the titre of infections virus in the vaccines before inactivation.
