comparison of antibodies against different viruses in cerebrospinal fluid and serum samples from patients with multiple sclerosis.the occurrence of a local production in the central nervous system (cns) of antibodies against different selected viruses was analyzed by comparison of titers in serum and cerebrospinal fluid samples from groups of 50 patients with multiple sclerosis from finland, norway, and sweden. measles antibodies were determined in hemagglutination inhibition, hemolysis inhibition, and nucleocapsid complement fixation tests; mumps, parainfluenza virus type 1, and rubella virus antibodies were determined in ...19744372178
