The infectivity of three inocula (subtypes ayw, adr, and adw) of hepatitis B virus was evaluated by intravenous inoculation of 54 chimpanzees. End-point infectivity titers were 10(-7.5) (ayw), 10(-8.0) (adr), and 10(-7.0) (adw). In contrast, the end-point titers for detection of hepatitis B surface antigen by radioimmunoassay were 10(-4) (ayw), 10(-4) (adr), and 10(-5) (adw). The mean incubation period for infections transmitted by each dilution of each of the inocula was inversely proportional… CONTINUE READING
