Abstract

Sera from patients exposed to measles virus were investigated for the presence of antibodies against each of the viral antigens. All sera with measurable neutralizing titers contained antibodies against the two surface proteins (the glycoprotein and fusion protein), the nucleocapsid protein, and one of the internal proteins infection (natural measles and atypical measles) contained antibodies against the measles virus matrix protein. Levels of matrix-specific antibodies were highest in patients with atypical measles infection.
