Multiple serum samples from 34 patients in various stages of acute and chronic hepatitis were collected during a 7-month period and assayed for interferon. The diagnosis of infectious and serum hepatitis was based on accepted clinical and laboratory criteria. No virus-inhibitory activity characteristic of interferon was detected in any of the serum specimens.
