  1. Prevalence of antibodies to Norwalk virus among Amerindians in isolated Amazonian communities.

    Article - En anglais

    The seroepidemiology of Norwalk virus infections was examined among Amerindians belonging to eight relatively isolated communities in the Amazon region by means of a new enzyme immunoassay using recombinant Norwalk virus antigen.

    The seroprevalence of antibodies to Norwalk virus ranged from 39% in the Maiogong to 100% in the Kubenkrankrein.

    The distribution of antibody levels varied greatly among groups; five of the eight communities had an antibody prevalence greater than 90% with many high values (>100 units), while three had both a low seroprevalence and a preponderance of low values (<100 units).
