Panels of monoclonal antibodies raised against different poliovirus type 1, 2 and 3 strains, were tested in a micro-neutralization test and in a micro-enzyme linked immunosorbent assay against a large number of poliovirus strains. The results were compared with those obtained with the classical system of serodifferentiation using strain specific cross-absorbed antisera. For this purpose a theoretical pattern fitting computer program was developed, in which each strain could be compared with all the other strains of which the serological data had been stored in the memory of the computer. The results obtained with the panels of monoclonal antibodies coincided well with those obtained with the cross-absorbed antisera. Especially for the identification of virus isolates related to the Sabin vaccine strains, these panels of monoclonal anti...
The use of a density gradient procedure for the quantification of intact, inactivated poliovirus particles in vaccine preparations is described. The procedure is both sensitive and highly reproducible and the results correlate with those of potency tests in rats and with D-antigen content as measured by ELISA. Because of the occasional ambiguity observed with D-antigen assays, it is suggested that the density gradient procedure will provide valuable additional information for the in vitro assessment of inactivated poliovirus preparations.
Lymphocyte hybridomas secreting monoclonal antibodies against different strains of polio virus type 1, 2, or 3 have been produced. For this purpose Balb/C mice were immunized with purified and inactivated virus suspensions and their splenocytes were fused with P3X63Ag8 mouse myeloma cells. Screening for antibody production was performed in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Antibodies were produced either in cell culture or in Balb/C mice by passaging the hybridomas as solid or ascitic tumors, after they had been cloned at least three times by limiting dilutions in microtiter plates. Specificities of a number of these monoclonal antibodies were determined in the ELISA and in a neutralization test using different polio virus subtypes. The results indicate that for epidemiological studies monoclonal antibodies may prove to be ...
A panel of 10 monoclonal antibodies raised to 3 different poliovirus type 1 strains was tested in a micro-enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and in a micro-neutralization test against 87 poliovirus type 1 strains. The results, evaluated in a newly developed system for intratypic strain characterization, were compared with the results obtained with the classical sero-differentiation system by using a small number of strain-specific, cross-absorbed antisera. The new system not only uses results obtained with strain-specific antibody preparations, but also uses the information obtained with monoclonal antibodies reacting with less unique antigenic determinants. In a theoretical pattern fitting computer program, each virus strain could be compared with all the other strains for which serological data were stored in the memory of the compute...
