Efficiency of plating on chick embryo cells and kinetic neutralization of Herpesvirus hominis strains.

Since it appeared that plaque formation in monolayers of primary chick embryo cells might provide a simple technique for the typing of Herpesvirus hominis strains, 100 isolates were tested for their efficiency of plating (EOP) on chick embryo cells versus plating on human embryonic fibroblasts. EOP values varied from 10(0) to 10(-6): 88% of the strains of… CONTINUE READING
