Serological response of pigs infected with Aujeszky's disease virus

Res Vet Sci. 1983 Sep;35(2):227-33.


The temporal development of antibody in four groups of pigs infected with different Aujeszky's disease virus isolates was examined. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay detected antibody by five to six days after infection and the antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity assay detected antibody seven to nine days after infection. Neutralising antibody was first detected nine to 10 days after infection, whereas assays measuring complement mediated antibody lysis did not detect antibody until 10 days after infection. These results are discussed in terms of their importance to the diagnosis of and recovery from Aujeszky's disease.
