Summary

Poliomyelitis antibodies were determined in 4155 sera from the Netherlands, Curaçao, Suriname, St. Eustatius and New-Guinea.

The results showed that in the Netherlands the serological pattern for poliomyelitis was different from that in the tropical areas Curaçao, Suriname, St. Eustatius and New-Guinea, which points to infection with poliomyelitis virus at an earlier age in these latter parts of the world.
