Abstract : Persons infected with cytomegalovirus produce neutralizing and complement-fixing antibodies that are type-specific and can be demonstrated over a long period of time. The complement fixation test represents a well suited and simple method for serological routine diagnosis and is less costly in time and effort than the neutralisation test.
