Abstract

SUMMARY

Antibodies to surface antigens of intracellular naked vaccinia virus (INV) and in limited studies extracellular enveloped virus (EEV) were determined by single radial immunodiffusion tests (SRDT) with immobilized virions in agarose gels. Antibodies to INV were demonstrable in rabbit hyperimmune sera (one to four visible zones), smallpox convalescent sera and sera from re-vaccinated individuals. A difference in specificity of antibodies reacting with INV and EEV was detectable by SRDT. The SRDT provides a simple, reproducible and specific test for detection of antibodies against vaccinia or variola virus, but the technique requires large quantities of virions.
