Abstract

SUMMARY It was found possible to correlate serological responses to porcine parvovirus (PPV) with the time after infection. Two procedures were used for PPV antibody measurement: an immunodiffusion technique to measure precipitating antibody and a haemagglutination inhibition (Hl) procedure to measure concentration of 2‐mercaptoethanol (2‐ME) sensitive antibody. Both procedures successfully related antibody titres to time post‐infection, but it was considered that a 2 M 2‐ME HI procedure showed the greater promise for field investigations.
