Abstract

Purpose: The human population is constantly exposed to multiple

but most were negative when evaluated using haemagglutination inhibition

Conclusion: As a result of these discordant serological findings, the

based neutralisation (pp-NT) assays and the results obtained

against influenza A viruses.
