  • a From the records of the NVSL, Ames, IA.

  • b The NC ELISA results were provided by the NVSL, Ames, IA. The GP ELISA results were obtained in this study and are means ± standard deviations (n = 3). Boldface numbers indicate positive results by each assay, based on a cutoff of 50% inhibition for the NC ELISA and 40% inhibition for the GP ELISA.
