Human Antibody Responses to Avian Influenza A (H7N9) Virus, 2013

Guo L, et al., 20(2):192-200 , Emerg Infect Dis, 2014

The authors performed biochemical analysis on a series of human patient samples to evaluate antibody responses against the influenza A (H7N9) virus to better understand the vaccine responses to influenza virus infection and viral pathogensis. The binding activity of three recombinantly generated hemagglutinins were confirmed using the Octet system prior to performing ELISA analysis. The ability to appropriately screen the antibody response to influenza A virus becomes critical in developing vaccines to provide immunity.
