Abstract

SUMMARY:

Passive haemagglutination (PHA) and protein A—antibody-mediated haemagglutination (SAPA–AMHA) were used to analyse the cross-reactions of rabbit antisera against four stains of There was cross-reactivity between all the strains tested but strain-specific reactions were obtained with three strains. Two to 32-fold higher antibody titres were obtained with SAPA–AMHA than with PHA. The antigen concentration required in inhibition assays was up to 32-fold higher for PHA than for SAPA–AMHA. The latter is a simple and superior alternative to PHA for such studies.
