The article by Chen and Kaplan in this issue of Clinical Chemistry (2) found a high frequency of weakly positive HBsAg results with 2 lots of reagent sets from one manufacturer; most of these weakly positive results were falsely positive (negative neutralization test results).
Comparative neutralization tests with related viruses were not performed, because we had previously found that murine antiserum developed against the other known phleboviruses in the United States--Sunday Canyon virus (7), Rio Grande virus (8), and Lone Star virus (9)--had no appreciable neutralizing activity against HRTV (Table 2).
