The use of an immunoenzymatic assay for the estimation of tetanus antitoxin in human sera: a comparison with seroneutralization and indirect haemagglutination.

Abstract

The ability of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect tetanus antitoxin in human sera has been evaluated in comparison with the in vivo seroneutralization test. The results of this study, carried out on 171 serum samples, show that ELISA is a sensitive and specific in vitro test for immunity to tetanus in man; it reveals the minimum… (More)
