Excerpt
In immunodifusion tests employing disrupted influenza virus (A2:Hong Kong/68, X-31 strain) as antigen, precipitin lines corresponding to three virus antigens can be distinguished -namely, the ribonucleoprotein, the haemagglutinin, and the ~ieurarninidase. In the present study a comparison was made of such immunodiffusion tests and conventional diag~stic methods (complement-fixation and haemngglutination-inhibition tests) for serological diagnosis of AZ/Hong Kong/68 infections in man. Precipitirr tests in which the acquisition or reinforcement of precipitins for AZIHong Kong/68 virus were detected, were found to be as sensitive as conventional methods far the serological diagnosis of influenza. In convalescent humon sera precipitin lines corresponding to inpue~rraA ribor~ucleoproteinw ere frequently detected, lines corresponding to A2 neuraminidase were less frequent, and those corresponding to hoemagglutinin were least freqrrent. Precipitin tests hadconsiderable advantages over other methods of serological diagnosis of influenza. They were rapid and simple to perform and were not susceptible to the effects of nonspeci@c reactions. In addition the antibody response to each of three antigens of the influenza virus could be detected in a single test system.
