West Nile virus (WNV) neutralization by US plasma-derived immune globulin intravenous (human) (IGIV) released in 2008 and plasma from donors with past WNV infection (past WNV), confirmed by nucleic acid testing. WNV neutralization titers are shown as the mean ± SEM (limit of detection <0.8 for undiluted IGIVs and <7.7 for prediluted sera). NT50, 50% neutralization titer.
