Abstract

A microtiter cell-culture assay is described for measuring neutralizing antibody activity directed against the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The assay relies upon inhibition of HIV-mediated cell killing of infected MT-4 lymphoid cells. The assay exhibits comparable sensitivity to two other methods used for such measurements, is relatively rapid, may be adapted for screening large numbers of samples and involves minimal handling of infectious virus.
