Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

Polio 1 Titer:  <1:8

Polio 2 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. The serum neutralization test is type specific, antibodies detected against one type does not indicate immunity against other types. 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.
