Effect of alkaline glutaraldehyde on hepatitis B virus antigens


The potential of alkaline 2 % glutaraldehyde solutions, with and without surface active agents, to alter the antigenicity of hepatitis B virus (HBV) was analyzed and compared to the antigenic alternation capacities of 0.525 % sodium hypochlorite and 2.02 % formaldehyde solutions. After treatment of a hepatitis B surface antigen-positive plasma at room… (More)
