Monoclonal antibodies for rabies virus characterization and epidemiological surveillance in Latin America and the Caribbean. Rev Panam Salud Publica [online]. 2000, vol.8, n.3, pp.214-217. ISSN 1680-5348. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1020-49892000000800016.
As one of the activities of the Rabies Reference Laboratories Consortium of the Pan American Health Organization, a technical consultation meeting was held in late 1999 where well-known experts from Europe, North America, and South America analyzed the contributions to rabies epidemiological surveillance in Latin America and the Caribbean made by techniques of antigenic typing based on monoclonal antibodies and by techniques of genetic typing based on gene sequencing.
