Anti-Taenia solium monoclonal antibodies for the detection of parasite antigens in body fluids from patients with neurocysticercosis
Neurocysticercosis (NCC), an infection of the brain by Taenia solium (Ts) cysts, is the most common cause of adult-onset epilepsy in developing countries. Serological testing consists primarily of varying methods to detect ...
Specific components found in circulating immune complexes (CIC) in paracoccidioidomycosis
Circulating immune complexes (CIC) from 15 paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) patient sera and from 20 healthy control sera were analysed. After CIC precipitation, solubilization and acid treatment, only a little reactivity to ...
Antisperm antibodies in infertile men and their correlation with seminal parameters
Aim: Antisperm antibodies (ASA) in males cause the autoimmune disease 'immune infertility'. The present study intended to detect the presence of ASA and their incidence in men with unexplained infertility, as well as to ...
Detection of class specific goat antibodies to Haemonchus contortus by Dig Elisa.
(In: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON GOATS, 4., 1987, Brasília, DF. Proceedings... Brasília, DF: EMBRAPA-DDT, 1987. v. 2, p. 1359-1360. Resumo 82., 1987)
Indirect fluorescent test for detection of anti-Paracoccidioides brasiliensis antibodies using coated bentonite particles as antigen
An indirect fluorescent test was developed for detecting antibodies to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis using bentonite particles as antigen (Bent-IF). The bentonite particles were coated with P. brasiliensis polysaccharide ...
Toxoplasma gondii: Comparison of a rhoptry-ELISA with IFAT and MAT for antibody detection in sera of experimentally infected pigs
Indirect ELISA and IFAT have been reported to be more sensitive and specific than agglutination tests. However, MAT is cheaper, easier than the others and does not need special equipment. The purpose of this study was to ...
