antibodies against certain bluetongue and epizootic haemorrhagic disease viral serotypes in indonesian ruminants.the orbiviruses contain several important viruses of livestock including bluetongue (bt) and epizootic haemorrhagic disease of deer (ehd) which share some group antigens. preliminary screening of sera for antibodies to orbiviruses by the agar gel immunodiffusion (agid) test has previously revealed widespread infections with the bt group in indonesia. however serum neutralization (sn) tests give a more accurate estimate of exposure to each serotype in the bt and ehd groups, and in this study were ...19911679575
hantavirus antigen detection using human serum immunoglobulin m as the capturing antibody in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) was developed to detect different hantavirus antigens in cell culture; i.e. puumala (puu), hantaan (htn), and dobrava (dob) viruses. the assay was based on binding human serum immunoglobulin m (igm) antibodies to the solid phase by use of goat anti-igm antibodies. the captured igm antibodies were present in the acute phase serum from two patients: one infected in sweden and the other in bosnia. antigens being bound to the solid phase by the human anti ...19968615449
high seroprevalence of hantavirus infection on the azuero peninsula of panama.the first outbreak of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps) in central america was documented on the azuero peninsula of panama in late 1999 and 2000. reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction evidence implicated only choclo virus in symptomatic hps with a mortality rate of 20%, although two rodent-borne hantaviruses (choclo virus and calabazo virus) were identified in the peridomestic habitat. neighborhood serosurveys around case households found seroprevalence rates as high as 30%, the hig ...200415211014
