New Study Finds InBios' DENV Detect IgM ELISA Effective for Rapid Diagnosis of Acute Or Recent Dengue Virus Infection Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013 A new study conducted by researchers at the John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii, evaluated the InBios DENV Detect IgM Capture ELISA for qualitative detection of IgM antibodies to dengue virus recombinant antigens (1). Well characterized clinical serum samples collected from Hawaii, Vietnam, Niue, Singapore and...

New in developmental research New research findings recently published in The FASEB Journal, show that immune system development is affected by gravity changes, as reported by researchers from the University of Lorraine and University of Luxembourg. Astronauts are exposed to stresses, during launch and landing, which disrupts their body's natural defenses against infection. Changes to the immune system need to be investigated before astronauts undergo longer space missions. Researchers...

Previous studies have shown that assessment of immunoglobulin subclasses in plasma cells by immunohistochemistry (IHC) may be useful in the histopathologic evaluation of autoimmune liver diseases. However, further studies are necessary in order to validate the diagnostic utility of IgM and IgG immunohistochemistry in this specific scenario. A research team from United States evaluated the predominant plasma cell immunoglobulin subclass present in liver biopsies of patients with...

Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) have uncovered the genetic identity of a cellular receptor for the immune system's first-response antibody, a discovery that sheds new light on infection control and immune disorders. The discovery is such a crucial part of immunology that UAB researchers, in conjunction with Japanese researchers, are asking that the gene linked to this antibody receptor be renamed to better describe its role in early immune responses. The proposed...

Debuts at Autism One May 22 - 25, 2009 CytoFlora decreases IgA and IgM antibodies to intestinal bacteria in children with immune disorders and autism. LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- It is believed that as many as 75% of autistic children are affected by gastrointestinal dysfunction. BioRay's new cell wall lysed probiotic, CytoFlora, has been shown in clinical testing to correct microbial imbalances, drive pathogens out of the gastrointestinal tract and assist re-colonization...

Early, vigorous and sustained lymphocyte proliferative responses specific to hepatitis C virus (HCV) have been regarded as pivotal for viral clearance. On the other hand, antibody responses' contribution is still controversial. Research data have been accumulated regarding the significance of specific antibody classes during chronic infection. Particularly, the relation of IgA and alcohol-induced hepatic damage has been recognized, but its possible implication in HCV chronic infection has not...

Defects in a single gene can result in two immune system disorders that leave affected individuals vulnerable to frequent or unusually severe infections, according to new findings reported in the August issue of Nature Genetics. The discovery may lead to new diagnostic tests for these two inherited conditions--immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency and common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) Currently, doctors diagnose the conditions by measuring immunoglobulin levels and excluding other causes...

A newly discovered gene mutation may account for many cases of immune deficiency, in particular two syndromes known as immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency and Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID), report researchers in the July issue of Nature Genetics. The discovery may lead to a new diagnostic test for these conditions, which make people highly susceptible to infections and often go unrecognized because of a lack of good tests. IgA deficiency affects 1 in 600 people; CVID is less common...
