Rapid detection of influenza-B virus in respiratory secretions by immunofluorescence during an epidemic

, : Rapid detection of influenza-B virus in respiratory secretions by immunofluorescence during an epidemic. Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease 15(1): 35-37

A commercially available indirect immunofluorescent assay for detection of respiratory viruses in nasal secretions was compared with cell culture during an influenza-B epidemic. This assay had poor sensitivity in the detection of influenza-B virus when used directly patients specimens.

Two mammalian tachykinins, substance P (SP) and neurokinin A (NKA), were measured by radioimmunoassay in canine cephalic blood vessels and tested for their vasoactivity in vitro. Levels of immunoreactive SP were approximately 2-3 times greater tha...
