Antigenic catergorization of contemporary H3N2 Swine Influenza Virus isolates using a high-throughput serum neutralization assay

view abstract swine influenza virus, hemagglutination, serum neutralization In vivo, neutralizing antibodies are critical for viral clearance. A high-throughput serum neutralization (HTSN) assay was developed to antigenically categorize Swine Influenza Virus (SIV) isolates.

Multiple Reassortment between Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 and Endemic Influenza Viruses in Pigs, United States

view abstract swine influenza virus As a result of human-to-pig transmission, pandemic influenza A (H1N1) 2009 virus was detected in pigs soon after it emerged in humans. In the United States, this transmission was quickly followed by multiple reassortment between the pandemic virus and endemic swine viruses. Nine reassortant viruses representing 7 genotypes were detected in commercial pig farms in the United States. Field observations suggested that the newly described reassortant viruses did not differ substantially from pandemic (H1N1) 2009 or endemic strains in their ability to cause disease.

Interlaboratory comparison of serologic assays for Porcine circovirus-2

view abstract veterinary biologics, pinkeye, swine influenza A blinded interlaboratory assessment of the diagnostic agreement and accuracy of serologic tests for routine detection of antibodies against Porcine circovirus-2 (PCV-2), including indirect fluorescent antibody tests (IFATs) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) was conducted in 7 North American laboratories.
