in the context of registered land, an entry on the register prohibiting (either for a specified period or until the occurrence of a stated event or until further order) any or some specified dealing with the land.

In the Scots law of diligence or legal enforcement, a prohibition on a debtor preventing him dealing with his heritable property. It is recorded in the Register of Inhibitions and Adjudication, so ought to be known to the world at large. It does not prevent the carrying through of obligations established before it was effected.

INHIBITION, Scotch law,. A personal prohibition which passes by letters under the signet, prohibiting the party inhibited to contract any debt, or do . any deed, by which any part of the lands may be aliened or carried off, in prejudice of the creditor inhibiting. Ersk. Pr. L. Scot. B. 2, t. 11, s. 2. See Diligences.
     2. In the civil law, the prohibition which the law makes, or a judge ordains to an individual, is called inhibition.

In addition, the Multimeric-001 vaccine, when administered once concomitantly with a 50% dose of a seasonal TIV, also induced higher rates of hemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibody responses (a surrogate marker of protection against influenza infection which is accepted by the regulatory authorities), when compared with the TIV alone.
They realized that the simplicity of EIA/ELISA compared very favorably with the cumbersome technology that was used in the field at that time (immunofluorescence, hemagglutination inhibition, and complement fixation) and quickly developed a wide range of tests for various microorganisms.
The vaccine demonstrated strong induction of dose correlated immune responses, with or without adjuvant, as assessed by virus microneutralization antibody assays and hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) responses.
Inovio has already conducted two separate phase I studies of its universal flu vaccine using the skin EP delivery system and generated broadly protective hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) titers against some of the most prevalent strains of H5N1 and H1N1 influenza.
The secondary objectives of the study are to measure additional antibody and cellular immune responses, in particular neutralization by complement, Hemagglutination inhibition (HI) responses (a measure of protection) against various strains of influenza, as well as proliferation of Interleukin-2 (IL-2) and Interferon-gamma cytokines.
Serosurveys based on hemagglutination inhibition and neutralization assays conducted during 1950-1970 indicated that 17%-20% of long-term rural residents in the Karoo, 4%-8% in the Highveld, and 1%-3% in the Natal and the Eastern Cape areas had antibodies against WNV (1).
Hemagglutination inhibition assay was used to test the effect of PPE on agglutination of chicken RBC by influenza virus.
It's estimated that in the pediatric population there was an overall 50% reduction in the hemagglutination inhibition (HI) reaction to the H3N2 component of the vaccine.
In pre-clinical studies, vaccination with VGX-3400 generated broadly protective levels of hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) titers in 100% of the immunized animals in five separate animal models - mice, ferrets, rabbits, pigs, and rhesus monkeys.
