Abstract

Among the recommended strategies for preventing measles and its complications in exposed, unvaccinated persons is passive protection by antimeasles containing immune globulin. Human intravenous and intramuscular γ-globulins from different manufacturers were studied for manufacturer-specific variation in measles antibody titers. All γ-globulin samples tested were seropositive for measles antibody. Titer variations were found to be clinically insignificant and thus can be used interchangeably for passive antibody protection against measles.
