ABSTRACT

Healthcare Worker Seroconversion in SARS Outbreak   [open pdf - 23KB]

Serum samples were obtained from healthcare workers 5 weeks after exposure to an outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). This document examines a sensitive dot blot enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, complemented by a specific neutralization test, showing that only persons in whom probable SARS was diagnosed had specific antibodies. The document suggests that subclinical SARS is not an important feature of the disease.
