Seroepidemiological survey for antibodies to arboviruses in Greece

Seroepidemiological survey for antibodies to arboviruses in Greece

Archives of Virology, Supplementum 1991; ( 1): 277-285

Plaque reduction neutralization (PRN) and indirect immunofluorescence (IFA) tests were used to detect human antibodies to certain viruses of the families Flaviviridae and Bunyaviridae. Blood samples for the serosurveys were mainly collected from healthy farmers, wood cutters and shepherds in 1981-88. By PRN test antibodies were found to West Nile, sandfly fever Naples and sandfly fever Sicilian viruses with seropositivity of 1.2%, 16.7% and 2.0%, respectively.
