Abstract
A study was undertaken to assess the suitability of monoclonal-based enzyme immunoassays for diagnosing Norwalk virus associated gastroenteritis outbreaks. The assay system was found sufficiently sensitive to use alone for outbreak diagnosis without aid of radio-immunoassays. In addition the enzyme immunoassay test permits diagnosis within 1 day after specimen receipt, rather than the 4 to 6 weeks required for collecting convalescent sera.
