Quantifying total IgG and IgG subclasses (peak and trough) in primary immunodeficiency paediatric patients treated with intravenous immunoglobulin (Multigam®) and relation with serospecific antipneumococcal antibodies Ghent University
Llama peripheral B-cell populations producing conventional and heavy chain-only IgG subtypes are phenotypically indistinguishable but immunogenetically distinct Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Camelid ungulates produce homodimeric heavy chain-only antibodies (HCAbs) in addition to conventional antibodies consisting of paired heavy and light chains. In the llama, HCAbs are made up by at least two subclasses (long-hinge IgG2b and short-hinge IgG2c HCAbs vs. conventional heterotetrameric IgG1s). Here, we generated murine monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) specific for the hinge-C H 2 boundary of llama IgG2b (mAb 1C10) and the ...

Comparison of two automated immunoassays for the determination of Puumalavirus IgM and IgG Vrije Universiteit Brussel Institute of Tropical Medicine KU Leuven
BACKGROUND: Puumala virus (PUUV), a member of the genus hantavirus, can cause nephropathia epidemica, a mild form of haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. The method of choice for the serodiagnosis of hantavirus infections are enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs).
OBJECTIVES: Two commercially available PUUV ELISA kits were compared: Hantavirus (Puumala) IgM/IgG ELISA (Progen, Heidelberg, Germany) and PUUMALA IgM and IgG EIA ...

Significantly lower anti-Leishmania IgG responses in Sudanese versus Indian visceral leishmaniasis Institute of Tropical Medicine
BACKGROUND: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL), a widely distributed systemic disease caused by infection with the Leishmania donovani complex (L. donovani and L. infantum), is almost always fatal if symptomatic and untreated. A rapid point-of-care diagnostic test for anti-Leishmania antibodies, the rK39-immunochromatographic test (rK39-ICT), has high sensitivity and specificity in South Asia but is less sensitive in East Africa. One of the ...
