A considerable amount of experimental work has been done on the yellow fever protection test, as result of which we have adopted for use in Uganda an intraperitoneal technic which employs 1 per cent mouse passage virus. The method enables tests to be done with as little as 0.5 ml of serum. It is more sensitive for the detection of antibody in low titer than the standard intraperitoneal method and appears to be no less specific than the latter.
