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.

The allantoic fluid from each surviving egg was tested for the presence of hemagglutinating agent by using HA test and was further confirmed through virus neutralization (hemagglutination inhibition) test.
They had a mean age of 86.7 years, provided venous blood samples for hemagglutination inhibition titers at baseline, and were randomly assigned to the high-dose or standard-dose vaccination group.
Of 10 patients sampled, 8 seroconverted after 2 or 3 serial bleeds, as evidenced by a 4-fold increase in the hemagglutination inhibition assay or virus neutralization test titers (Appendix Table 1), and had RVFV-specific IgM, confirming their recent RVFV infection status.
The researchers used hemagglutination inhibition to measure antibody titers to the H1N1 antigen at enrollment and at 21-25 days after each vaccination.
Hemagglutination inhibition assay was used to test the effect of PPE on agglutination of chicken RBC by influenza virus.
Acute and convalescent serum specimens were tested for dengue antibodies using the hemagglutination inhibition assay and IgM antibody capture enzyme linked immunosorbent assay [3,4].
To determine the effect of these differences on antigenicity, we assessed the relationships in a 2-way hemagglutination inhibition assay, using a panel of ferret antisera raised to related H7 viruses (Table).

Children aged 2-6 years with no detectable hemagglutination inhibition assay antibody levels have lower responses than do children with detectable levels, suggesting that "preexisting immunity or infection matters."
