Borrelia spp., the causative agents of Lyme disease are spirochetes similar to other infectious agents such as Treponema pallidum (responsible for syphilis) or bacteria of the Leptospira genus (responsible for leptospirosis).. The biological diagnosis of spirochetes infections is tedious. It is mainly based on the use of indirect methods, i.e. serological tests, and is therefore imperfect.daily news analysis Science and Technology N 95 masksICMR RECOMMENDS THE USE OF RAPID ANTIGEN TEST KIT ALONG WITH RT PCR TEST FOR DIAGNOSIS OF COVID TEST. Indian Council of Medical Research, ICMR has recommended the use of rapid antigen test kits for diagnosis of COVID 19 in containment zones and healthcare settings in combination with the RT PCR test. The kits will allow faster diagnosis without laboratory examination.Method for diagnosing chronic hepatitis B virus infection Mar 10, 1998 · In AH B patients, IgM anti HBc levels were initially high before the peak ALT elevation and declined thereafter (from a mean of 9.8 to 4.1 P/N), conversely, the production of IgG anti HBc was initially low and increased during resolution of the hepatitis (from a mean of 9 to 27.5 P/N), and IgG anti HBc w production remained low to negative
SARS CoV 2 IgG and IgM/IgA antibodies were tested (COVID 19 VIRCLIA Monotest, Vircell Microbiologist, Spain; reported sensitivity 70% IgG and 89% IgM/IgA, and specificity 89% and 99% respectively). Indeterminate results were re tested (VITROS Immunodiagnostic Products Anti SARS CoV2 Total Tests, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, USA; 100% sensitivity Peer Reviewed Journal Tracking and Analyzing Disease Apr 09, 2014 · cific IgM production than strains bred for lower metabolic rates; leukocyte counts and mass of lymphatic organs that are the sources of immune cells involved in antigen recog nition and elimination also are elevated in the strains with higher metabolic rates (19). The metabolic cost of raisingPentraxinsStructure, Function, and Role in InflammationThe pentraxins are an ancient family of proteins with a unique architecture found as far back in evolution as the Horseshoe crab. In humans the two members of this family are C reactive protein and serum amyloid P. Pentraxins are defined by their sequence homology, their pentameric structure and their calcium dependent binding to their ligands.
