Because of the widespread prevalence of poliomyelitis viruses and antibody, the influence of vaccination and active infection on antibody level in a population is difficult to determine. From an investigation of poliomyelitis on St. Paul Island, Alaska, and from two separate studies evaluating the antibody-stimulating capacity of Salk poliomyelitis vaccine, data were collected with which the significance of changes in amount of neutralizing and complement-fixing antibody could be assessed. These data and conclusions from them are presented here.
