Abstract:

The present paper reports on tests performed with the aim to determine possibly existing differences in the behaviour of the influenza virus strains A2Berlin268 and A2Hong Kong168 towards inhibitors contained in the sera of man and different animal species. Beyond this, experiments were carried out to check in the HI-test the possible existence of an antigenic relationship between the two strains under special consideration of the influence of serum inhibitors upon the results of the HI-test, and the possibly existing degree of a true cross reaction after complete elimination of the serum inhibitors specific for the two virus strains on the basis of the corresponding chicken immune sera.
