Preformed immune aggregates, containing antigen and either IgG (immunoglobulin G) or F(ab')2 rabbit antibody, were incubated with normal human serum under conditions allowing activation of only the alternative pathway of complement. Both the IgG and F(ab')2 immune aggregates bound C3b, the activated form of the complement component C3, in a similar manner,(More)
Immune aggregates formed from either rabbit IgG antibody or F(ab')2 antibody, and antigen, caused exactly the same extent of incubated with human serum under conditions when incubated with human serum under conditions allowing only alternative pathway activation. These observations confirm that the F(ab')2 region of the antibody molecule can cause(More)
PURPOSE To compare the inclination of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) on computed tomography (CT) and plain radiography (XR) in order to assess the effect of narrowing the range of inclination used in the original Tolat classification system to identify potentially problematic reverse oblique DRUJs. METHODS Two independent investigators compared the(More)
An enzyme thermistor assay for serum glucose is described. The glucose present in the sample is reacted in a small column containing glucose oxidase immobilized to controlled pore glass (single thermistor device). The heat produced in the primary reaction is measured directly in the column without any need for coupling reactions. The useful linear range is(More)
