Laboratory investigations on equine influenza during the outbreak in Poland in 1980

Laboratory investigations on equine influenza during the outbreak in Poland in 1980

Zentralblatt für Veterinarmedizin. Reihe B. Journal of Veterinary Medicine. Series B 30(3): 232-236

The outbreak of equine influenza in Poland in 1980 was caused by an equine influenza virus antigenically related to the strain A/equine/Miami/63/Heq2, Neq2. This was confirmed by isolation of 6 strains of influenza virus from horses suffering from the acute form of the disease; .apprx. 45% and 69% of positive results were obtained in the hemagglutination inhibition test performed with sera taken from convalescent and affected animals, respectively. A relatively high level of antibodies against newly isolated equine influenza virus strians was found in 50% of serum samples taken from the grooms. A relatively low level of antibodies was found in sera tested by the antistreptolysin O test.
