Severe acute respiratory syndrome–associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) neutralizing antibody–positive rate by time of blood sample collection (days after onset of fever). Black bars represent the number of patients tested for neutralizing antibodies (Nab). White bars represent the number of patients whose assayed samples were positive for neutralizing antibodies (Nab+). Samples are considered positive for Nab if the 90% neutralizing antibody titer determined by using murine leukemia virus (MLV) (SA

Figure 3. . Severe acute respiratory syndrome–associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) neutralizing antibody–positive rate by time of blood sample collection (days after onset of fever). Black bars represent the number of patients tested for neutralizing antibodies (Nab). White bars represent the number of patients whose assayed samples were positive for neutralizing antibodies (Nab+). Samples are considered positive for Nab if the 90% neutralizing antibody titer determined by using murine leukemia virus (MLV) (SARS) pseudotypes is >10. Line plot with open white circles shows the geometric mean (GM) Nab titer within each time frame. IC90, 90% inhibitory concentration.
