The application of monoclonal antibody methodology as a tool for serotyping leptospira isolates in Cuba.Rev Cubana Med Trop. 2007 Jan-Apr; 59(1):68-70.RC
By using the monoclonal antibodies methodology we have classified Cuban serovars of leptospires isolated from blood culture of confirmed leptospirosis patients. The serogroups Pomona and Canicola were the most predominant found in our study. Pomona, Mozdok and Canicola serovars were the most prevalent types in these serogroups. Our study has essentially presented a validation of a monoclonal antibody method for the serotyping of Cuban leptospire isolates.
