  • Our studies of rotavirus challenge in adult volunteers enabled us to evaluate the relationship of pre-existing antirotavirus fecal IgA antibody to infection and illness and to investigate the local response to this infection. No relationship could be found between the pre-existing levels of fecal antirotavirus IgA antibody and protection from infection or illness. A greater than six-fold increase in the level of antibody was seen in 16/19 infected volunteers with determinable increases but in 0… CONTINUE READING
