Coxsackievirus A10 (CVA10) recently has become one of the major pathogens of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) in children worldwide, but no cure or vaccine against CVA10 is available yet. Serological evaluation of herd immunity to CVA10 will promote the development of vaccine. The traditional neutralization assay based on inhibition of cytopathic effect (Nt-CPE) is a common method for measuring neutralizing antibody titer against CVA10, which is time-consuming and labor-intensive. In this study, an efficient neutralization test based on a monoclonal antibody (mAb) 3D1 against CVA10, called Elispot-based neutralization test (Nt-Elispot), was developed. In the Nt-Elispot, the mAb 3D1 labeled with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was used to detect the CVA10-infected RD cells at a 1:4000 dilution and the optimal infectious dose of CVA10 was set at 105 TCID50/well when combined with a fixed incubation time of 14 h. Compared with the Nt-CPE, the Nt-Elispot method effectively shortened the detection period and presented a good correlativity with it. Using the Nt-Elispot, a total of 123 sera from healthy children were tested for neutralizing antibody against CVA10, demonstrating that the overall seroprevalence was 49.3% (54/123) and the geometric mean titer (GMT) had been calculated as 574.2. Furthermore, 2 anti-CVA10 neutralizing mAbs were obtained by screening via the Nt-Elispot. Overall, the established Nt-Elispot could be used as an efficient and high-throughput method for evaluating immunity to CVA10 and screening the neutralizing antibodies.
