aStandard hemagglutination inhibition (HAI), neuraminidase inhibition (NI) and neutralization (neut) assays in the absence as well as presence of complement factor C1q were performed as described in Materials and Methods. Viruses used for these assays were A/PR/8/34 (H1N1) and A/Wuhan/359/95 (H3N2) that had been used to infect the cotton rats that were the source of this serum pool. Animals were boosted several times by rechallenging them with the same virus before serum was collected. The lowest dilution of serum used in the HAI assay was 1/10 and therefore no inhibition of agglutination is recorded as a titer of < 10. The lowest dilution of serum used in the neutralization assay was 1/100 and therefore no neutralization is recorded as a titer of < 100.
