It has been proposed that selection exerted by antibodies of the host could play a major role in the rapid evolution of FMDV. The present work reports the selection of FMDV antibody-resistant (Nr) populations after serial passages of a cloned FMDV 01 Caseros strain on secondary monolayers of bovine kidney cells in the presence of subneutralizing antiviral polyclonal sera (…
