By reviewing the data and laboratory test,34 batches of live attenuated yellow fever vaccine were determined for virus titer according to the standard for license, of which 52 batches were determined for ovalbumin residue by ELISA, and 14 batches for moisture. The determination results were subjected to statistical and quality trend analyses, and compared with those by the manufacturers,based on which the general status of vaccine quality was reviewed. All the determination results of virus titer, ovalbumin residue and moisture met the requirements in Chinese Pharmacopoeia, and there is no difference in those by the manufacturers and those by the National Institutes for Food and Drug Control .
