The method used for finding the baseline titre was Widal tube agglutination test. The amount of antigen suspension used was the same as the amount of diluted sera making the dilution 2-fold, and hence the readings in our study begin with titre 1 : 40, which is in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and also the standard lab protocol followed by the Department of Microbiology of the institution where our study was conducted.
