  • a The results for 141 viruses whose G serotype could not be identified are not included here.

  • b The P serotypes of the viruses used to generate the VP4 Nt-MAbs are P1A for MAbs 1A10 and F45, P1B for MAb RV5, and P2A for MAb HS6.

  • c For simplicity during their reference in the text, the VP4 MAb patterns found were designated A to H.

  • d Neg, specimens that were not reactive with any of the MAbs used.

  • e —, no specimen reacting with the indicated VP4 MAbs was detected.
