Abstract

Using a monoclonal antibody (MAb) specific for the H7 influenza surface glycoproteins, a serological enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test has been developed. This MAb was made using the low-pathogenicity (LP) avian influenza (AI) strain (BS2676/99) isolated in Italy during a recent outbreak. The test is able to detect H7 antibodies in avian sera. The H7 ELISA has a 99% concordance of results with the classical hemagglutination inhibition (HI) test.
