A Study of the Incidence of Australia Antigen and Antibody in Nonhuman Primates

A Study of the Incidence of Australia Antigen and Antibody in Nonhuman Primates Vox Sang. 19: 270-272 (1970) A Study of the Incidence of Australia Antigen and Antibody in Nonhuman Primates1 Shirley L. Rivers and M. Keeling Atlanta Regional Red Cross Blood Center; Emory University School of Medicine, Department of Medicine; and the Yerkes Regional Primate Center of Emory University, Atlanta, Ga. In the course of a survey of the incidence of Australia antigen and antibody in this area, 956 patients, 5,000 normal blood donors and 121 nonhuman primates from the Yerkes Regional Primate Research Center were tested using a slight modification of the micro Ouchter- lony technique as described by Prince [5], Our interest in testing primates arose when our laboratory tested the serum of a child with fulminating hepatitis who was treated by cross-circulation between her circulatory system and that of a healthy chimpanzee of the same blood type. We found that Australia antigen was present in the child’s serum during the treatment but not before cross-circulation or several days after. The serum of the chimpanzee was found to be positive one year before the cross-circulation and 18 months later, although the animal had no clinical illness. This case is to be reported in de­ tail [2, 4]. Table I. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Vox Sanguinis Karger
