Abstract

Evaluation of the antibody responses induced by the 2004-2005 influenza vaccine strain against the homologous variant, the 2004-2005 field isolates, and a previous circulating strain showed that a correlation between neutralizing and hemagglutination-inhibiting activities exists only when the antigen is very close to the vaccine strain.
