Formalinized goose erythrocytes were used in haemagglutination inhibition (HI) and indirect fluorescent-antibody (IFA) tests to detect antibodies to Japanese encephalitis (JE) and West Nile (WN) viruses in equines. Paired serum samples from 31 cases having clinical symptoms of flaviviral infections (JE and WN viruses) and 45 controls were examined. For HI test, formalinized goose erythrocytes were used as such, whereas in IFA test, formalinized goose erythrocytes were first coated with… CONTINUE READING
