Seventy-one batches of nonspecific gamma-globulin obtained from France, USSR and Mongolia were studied for presence of specific antibody to group A and C meningococcus polysaccharide. Specific activity was tested by two methods: radioimmunoassay (Lyon) and reaction of passive haemagglutination inhibition (Moscow). Antibodies were detected in all the(More)
New data on the cross-reacting antigen of N. meningitidis, serogroup A, are presented. A complex of antigens has been isolated by treatment with tryptone X-100, ethanol precipitation and the subsequent treatment with trichloroacetic acid. The immunological analysis of the isolated preparation has shown that the proteinaceous part of the biopolymer contains(More)
The rapid diagnosis of meningococcal infection (MI) and of suppurative bacterial meningitis (SBM) still remains an urgent problem in practical health care. To detect nonviable cells and specific antigens, test systems of enzyme immunoassay are used in laboratory practice, accompanied on an ever-increasing scale by the use of kits for use in the latex(More)
The results of the determination of antibodies to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in 270 patients with different forms of meningococcal infection and in 816 healthy persons by means of the passive hemagglutination test are presented. The role of antibodies to LPS in the formation of humoral immunity to meningococci in sick children and adults is shown. Different(More)
The suggested microvariant of the latex agglutination test in glass capillaries is not inferior to the traditional latex agglutination on the glass in sensitivity and specificity. The microvariant consists in the following: glass capillaries 0.8 mm in diameter 10 cm long are filled with the pathological material (3/5 of the tube length) and with the(More)
Comparative analysis of the diagnostic value of different laboratory methods in the diagnosis of H. influenzae b (Hib) pneumonia in children (bacteriological method, latex agglutination, counter immunoelectrophoresis, the passive hemagglutination test and the enzyme immunoassay (EIA) was carried out. EIA proved to be the most informative method for the(More)
Modified polystyrene latexes with high adsorption capacity, comparable to that of latexes produced by Difco Laboratories (USA), have been developed in the USSR. Diagnostic latex preparations for the detection of meningococci of serogroups A, C, Y and Haemophilus influenza, type b, prepared on the basis of these new latexes, have shown high specificity and(More)
A principal possibility and advantages of the diagnosis of meningococcal infection by means of agglutination of sensibilized latex particles with erythrocytes have been demonstrated. Polysterene carboxylated latex has been sensibilized by rabbit JgG to meningococcus of serogroup A. Dynamics of absorption of meningococcal polysaccharide on erythrocytes in(More)
