Viruslike particles 26-27 nm in size were detected by immune electron microscopy in stools of volunteers who were ill after administration of bacteria-free fecal filtrates derived from two separate family outbreaks of acute epidemic nonbacterial gastroenteritis. Fluorocarbon treatment and concentration of the filtrates were necessary to provide enough antigen to test sera by immune electron microscopy. Serum antibody responses were detected in both naturally occurring and experimentally induced… CONTINUE READING
