ABSTRACT: Throat swab samples from 30 hospitalized children with acute respiratory infections were inoculated in HIp-2 cell line for virus isolation. Employing hexon group specific monoclonal antibody (ADV-1), a dot-ELISA detected adenoviral antigens in 15 infected culture supernatants, 12 of which were positive in the adenoviral neutralization test. Antibodies to adenoviral types, 3-5, 7 and 8 could be demonstrated in 10 of the 12 neutralization test positive cases using dot-ELISA.
