In the Local Lymph Node Assay (LLNA), a stimulation index of 3 (SI = 3) is established as a threshold value for hazard identification of sensitization. The corresponding EC3 value, the effective concentration inducing a threefold increase compared to controls, can possibly predict threshold...
The QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT-G) is a new FDA approved test for diagnosing Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. This test detects the release of interferon-gamma (IFNγ) in whole blood from sensitized persons when it is incubated with mixtures of synthetic peptides representing 2 proteins present...
Cardiac allografts induce host immune responses that lead to endomyocardial tissue injury and progressive graft dysfunction. Inflammatory cell infiltration and myocyte damage characterize acute cellular rejection (ACR) that presents episodically in either a subclinical or symptom-associated...
Gene expression profiling of peripheral blood cells can provide dynamic information regarding the host response to immune-mediated disorders. AlloMap® molecular expression testing from XDx monitors the expression of 20 genes in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) to discriminate cardiac...
EPA guidelines provide a choice in evaluating humoral immune system function in rats and mice immunized with sheep red blood cells (sRBC): an antibody-forming cell (AFC) assay or a sRBC-specific serum IgM enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Four different laboratories used both methods to...
The primary objective of this study was to investigate the effects of cobalt (Co 2 + ), palladium (Pd 2 + ), platinum (Pt 4 + ) and vanadium (V 2 + , V 3 + , V 4 + and V 5 + ) on the ability of the neutrophil chemoattractants C5a and IL-8, as well as the pneumococcal toxin, pneumolysin, to...
The need for a systematic approach for immune function monitoring has becoming increasingly apparent in the past decade due to the rapid expansion of the development and use of immunomodulatory drug therapies and vaccines. While there has been a great deal of progress in the development of...
