In 80% of cases, antituberculosis antibodies from the sera of patients with tuberculosis were ascertained to react in enzyme immunoassay (EIA) with antigens (ultrasound disintegrants (USDs)) of reverse mycobacteria isolated (initially) from patients with sarcoidosis. The USDs of reverse mycobacteria isolated from patients with sarcoidosis reacted in EIA(More)
The paper outlines the high-priority trends in basic and applied investigations of antituberculous immunity. It presents the results obtained from studies of the genetic mechanisms responsible for the control of susceptibility in experimental tuberculosis, from analyses of novel chemical and recombinant tuberculosis vaccines, from examinations of the role(More)
A total of 32 patients with aggravated chronic pyo-obstructive bronchitis were studied. Various immunological disorders and impaired non-specific responsiveness were detected in this group of patients. With this, abnormal T cellular immunity (reduced T cell counts at the expense of T helpers and their reaction to PGA) was the leading T cell immunity(More)
Using affinity chromatography on concanavalin A (Con A) sepharose CL 6B, a carbohydrate-containing fraction was derived from Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv sonicate. Surprisingly, the main component of Con A fraction was a protein having a molecular weight of a 30-kD range which is generally absent in the Con A-adsorbed fraction from the culture filtrate.(More)
Immunization of BALB/c mice with sonicates of M. smegmatis and kansasii and fusion of splenocytes of the immunized mice with cells of syngeneic myeloma P3X63Ag8653 yielded hybrid clones synthetizing antibodies to these antigens. The selection of hybrid clones and analysis of the antibodies specificity were performed at ELISA using the immunization antigens(More)
Antibodies to Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigens H37Rv and reverse strains previously isolated from patients with sarcoidosis with granular isolates were determined in 50 patients with sarcoidosis (including 16 patients isolating granular types) and 56 patients with tuberculosis, by using ELISA and immunoblotting. Serum antibodies from patients with(More)
A total of 33 patients with chronic pyoobstructive bronchitis with immunological disorders (of T-cell and other links) and nonspecific responsiveness. The use of thymogen in multi-modality treatment contributed to normalization of T-cell immunity (increases in E-rosette formation, responses of blast cell transformation to phytohemagglutinin, Tx/Tc ratio),(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (MAb) F5 to human IgG were used for creating immunoperoxidase conjugate. MAb dissociation constant was 10(-9)M-1 and the number of binding sites 1. Enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and immunoblotting showed that MAb F5 specifically recognize conformation epitope on intact human IgG molecule but not on other human immunoglobulins or denatured(More)
A total of 103 patients with fibrocavernous tuberculosis of the lung were examined. They all received chemotherapy, including 3 - 4 antituberculous agents. Laser therapy was performed with a UZOR-2K low-energy semiconductor laser. In patients with profound changes in the serum level of protein, with high antigenemia and antibody production, the course of(More)
