Age based RFFIT findings reveal protective mRVNA titers in 14, 11 and 4 puppies that were 1, 2 and 3 months old, respectively while mRVNA titer was below protective level in 20, 16 and 12 puppies at 1, 2 and 3 months age, respectively.
RFFIT is a WHO recommended gold standard serological assay used for RVNA determination (Durrani et al.
RFFIT revealed a variation of mRVNA titers among different age groups of puppies (Table I).
The threshold for RFFIT positivity chosen in this study was slightly higher than that used in recent bat studies performed in Europe (3) and the Philippines (6).
The RFFIT was conducted by using Lab-Tek 8-well glass slides with covers (Nalge Nunc International, Naperville, IL).
Repeating the RFFIT assays with a challenge virus from phylogroup II, such as MOKV or LBV, could have tested this hypothesis further.
Antibody was demonstrated in serum samples of all subjects when tested by the RFFIT.
Booster doses (IM or ID) of vaccine should be given to maintain a serum titer corresponding to at least complete neutralization at a 1:5 serum dilution by the RFFIT.
