Antisperm antibody tests: traditional methods compared to ELISA
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) to detect sperm antibodies can be a useful addition to other tests. ELISAs allow more quantitative and detailed information than some other tests, but results should be compared ...
A quick, reliable staining technique for human sperm morphology.
The evaluation of sperm morphology is still an important parameter in the diagnosis of the infertile male. Most techniques used for staining human sperm are very time-consuming. A routine stain used for determining ...
Evaluation of immunobead test (IBT), tray-agglutination test (TAT), and sperm immobilization test (SIT)
The present investigation relates the results obtained by the indirect immunobead test (IBT) to those found during the tray-agglutination test (TAT) and sperm immobilization test (SIT) performed on 16 positive blood sera ...
The relationship of anticardiolipin antibodies to disease activity in systemic lupus erythematosus
Sera from 124 blood donors, 60 rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 57 SLE patients were measured for anticardiolipin antibodies by ELISA. Significantly raised IgG (aCLG) and IgM (aCLM) anticardiolipin antibody levels were found ...
Analysis of vitamin B6 vitamers in human tissue by cation-exchange high-performance liquid chromatography
This publication reports the modification of existing methodology to analyse vitamin B6 vitamers in human erythrocytes, mononuclear cells (MNCs) and human liver biopsy tissue. It further reports for the first time a complete ...
The Hemizona Assay (HZA): Finding sperm that have the "right stuff"
[No abstract available]
Craniocervical mycetoma caused by Streptomyces somaliensis
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, computerized tomography (CT) and clinical-pathological findings are described in a case of craniocervical mycetoma caused by the actinomycete Streptomyces somaliensis. Clinical features ...
Plasma vitamin levels in patients on prolonged total parenteral nutrition
Vitamins are essential in total parenteral nutrition (TPN), their importance being highlighted by repeated past documentation of various vitamin deficiencies particularly in patients on long-term parenteral nutrition ...
c-erbB-2 oncogene product staining in gastric adenocarcinoma. An immunohistochemical study
The c-erbB-2 oncogene has been shown to be amplified in a variety of human adenocarcinomas. Antibodies to the protein product, p185, have been used for immunostaining of paraffin-embedded material, and have demonstrated ...
Random faecal alpha-1-antitrypsin excretion in children with acute diarrhoea
Random faecal alpha-1-antitrypsin (FA-1-AT) was used as a marker of endogenous protein loss in 113 children with acute diarrhoea. Significant protein loss occurred in 39 per cent of all cases. Protein loss was highest in ...
