Study participants generally find it easier to remember the types of pests treated than the specific pesticides used. However, if the goal of the study is to assess disease risk from specific… (More)
The sensitivity and specificity of the indirect micro-enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was compared with that of the rapid serum-plate test (RSPT) and the hemagglutination-inhibition test (HIT) in detecting antibodies to Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) and M. synoviae (MS). Membrane antigens of MG strain S6 and MS strain NEL 61800 were used. ELISA… (More)
Triton X-100-solubilized Mycoplasma gallisepticum and M. synoviae ELISA antigens were found to be more specific and sensitive than six other antigens at a concentration of 250 ng protein/0.1 ml per microtiter plate well.
