Abstract: A seroepidemiological survey for rubella antibody was undertaken with the sera collected from the residents in Nagasaki district in southern Japan. Of 450 sera tested, 144 (32 percent) were found not to have NT antibody. From the incidences of NT antibody by age group, it was noticed that there are about 10 to 20 percent individuals susceptible to rubella virus infection in adults over 20 years old. This antibody distribution pattern by age group and the distribution pattern of antibody titers suggested that the chance of infection from rubella virus begins in childhood and is considerably frequent in the adults around 20 years old in this district.
