Reference Values

Polio 1 Titer:  <1:8

Polio 3 Titer:  <1:8

 

The presence of neutralizing serum antibodies (titers 1:8 up to >1:128) against polioviruses implies lifelong immunity. Some persons without detectable titers (<1:8) may also be immune as demonstrated by elicitation of a secondary-type serum antibody response upon rechallenge with live polio vaccine.
