Laboratory and clinical investigation of the 1974 influenza epidemic in Nigeria.

Abstract

Altogether 13 strains of virus were isolated during the 1974 influenza epidemic in Nigeria. These A/Nigeria/1/74 strains were shown by haemagglutination-inhibition tests to be closely related to the A/Port Chalmers/1/73 virus. Antibody to the epidemic strains developed rapidly in the population and 80-95% of all age groups tested possessed high antibody levels; of 145 paired sera tested, 133 (92%) showed sero-conversion to A/Nigeria/1/74 virus.
