Salivary anti-hsp65 antibodies as a diagnostic marker for gingivitis and a possible link to atherosclerosis.
Levels of specific salivary IgA antibodies against mycobacterial heat shock protein (hsp) 65 are significantly increased in patients with gingivitis when compared to clinically healthy subjects. TheExpand

Monoclonal antibodies against the free subunits of human chorionic gonadotrophin.
Discordant results on body fluid levels of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) free alpha- and beta-subunits under physiological and pathophysiological conditions, prompted us to raise a total of 260Expand

[Stimulation of synthesis of secretory immunoglobulin A in the lung by oral immunization: an approach with therapeutic relevance?].
Due to its strategic position on mucosal surfaces secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) is one of the first protective factors of the specific immune system against invading pathogens. As a factor ofExpand
