Because some patients did not receive PRNT
results during the study period, we used CDC guidelines for areas (Puerto Rico) where PRNT
was not recommended and relied on the IgM results (9).
cannot distinguish between maternal and infant antibodies in specimens collected from infants at or near birth; however, based on what is known about other congenital infections, maternal antibodies are expected to become undetectable by age 18 months and might become undetectable earlier (31).
If a positive or equivocal result is obtained, additional testing using PRNT
must be performed by the CDC or a CDC-designated laboratory for confirmation.

titer greater than 10 should be interpreted as proof of infection with the specific tested flavivirus, if the titer is less than 10 for other tested flaviviruses.

However, detection of viral RNA by RT-PCR on blood or tissue can be carry out, hence a [greater than or equal to] 4-fold rise antibody titers by PRNT
in acute and convalescent serum specimens can be carry out (5).
2014 revealed that 133 (34%) patients were positive by the EIA IgM screening test and 105 (27%) were confirmed by PRNT
Blood specimens from the patient were laboratory tested at the Institut Pasteur de Dakar and found to be IgM positive by ELISA and confirmed with PRNT
Neutralizing antibodies (NAb) were also measured by PRNT
but were not detected in animals inoculated with VecD2, even after four DNA inoculations (data not shown).

Procedures at Mahidol University, Bangkok (August 16-30, 2009).
Twelve out of the 13 (92,8 %) samples from YF cases were confirmed by PRNT
, returning neutralising titres greater than 1/10; only one case (sample 22) had no detectable YFV neutralising antibody, but it did have epidemiological confirmation.
