As a minimum invasive technique, autofluorescence spectroscopy has found its application in the characterization of tissues and diagnosis of diseases. The major distinguishing power arises from the change of the nano-environment, quantities and functional/conformational states of the endogenous fluorophores – mainly represented with aromatic aminoacids Trp,(More)
The lack of success of subunit human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 vaccines to date suggests that multiple components or a complex virion structure may be required. We hypothesized that the failure of current vaccine strategies to induce protective antibodies is linked to the inability of native envelope structures to readily elicit these types of(More)
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test has been developed for measurement of heterophile antibody. The microtiter test utilizes a bovine erythrocyte monolayer as antigen and anti-human IgM antiserum conjugated with horseradish peroxidase to measure the degree of binding of the heterophile antibody in the test serum with the erythrocytes. A single(More)
