    Rabenau H, Marianov B, Wicker S, Allwinn R. Comparison of the neutralizing and ELISA antibody titres to measles virus in human sera and in gamma globulin preparations. Med Microbiol Immunol. 2007;196:151-5 pubmed
    ..In both antibody tests seropositive specimens revealed a quite good to moderate correlation. Taken together, the measles IgG ELISA is adequately for immunity testing and identifying of seronegative individuals for vaccination. ..

    ..The case might have implications for infection control in hospital settings and the weighting of the predictive value of PCR results. ..
  4. Rabenau H, Rapp I, Steinmann J. Can vaccinia virus be replaced by MVA virus for testing virucidal activity of chemical disinfectants?. BMC Infect Dis. 2010;10:185 pubmed publisher
    ..Because MVA does not replicate in humans this would eliminate the potential risk of inadvertent inoculation with vaccinia virus and disease in non-vaccinated laboratory workers. ..

    ..In the present study, we assessed potential differences in neutralising antibody titres to Sabin and CHAT in persons with a history of either OPV, IPV, or OPV with IPV booster...

    ..One-third of the patients had been exposed to HBV and T. pallidum. The generally high HSV-2 prevalence showed gender- and CD4 cell count-dependent differences in HSV-2 antibody titer. ..
