A labeled avidin-biotin enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (LAB-ELISA) for detecting antibody to infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT) virus in chicken sera was developed and compared with ordinary ELISA. Purified ILT virus, biotin-labeled anti-chicken IgG rabbit IgG conjugate, and horseradish-peroxidase-labeled avidin were used in the LAB-ELISA. When sera from farm chickens were tested by serum neutralization (SN) and two kinds of ELISA, the correlation rate between SN and LAB-ELISA was 50/50 (100%), and that between SN and ordinary ELISA was 39/50 (78%). In LAB-ELISA, all of the sera that were antibody-negative by SN had low absorbance (A) values (below 0.05), and the A values were closely correlated with the SN indexes. In ordinary ELISA, however, the sera antibody-negative by SN had various A values ranging from 0.06 to 0.32. LAB-ELISA had much lower nonspecific reactions than ordinary ELISA against sera from ILT-negative chickens, even when chickens were 30 weeks old. ILT antibody production after ILT vaccination could be detected by LAB-ELISA. A values peaked 5 weeks postinoculation and were maintained for 17 weeks.
