Detection of antibodies and antigens of human parvovirus B19 by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
Acute-phase serum from a patient with aplastic crisis provided sufficient human parvovirus B19 to make a monoclonal antibody against B19 and to develop antigen and immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgGExpand
SENSITIVE ASSAYS FOR VIRAL ANTIBODIES IN SALIVA: AN ALTERNATIVE TO TESTS ON SERUM
TLDR
For both saliva and serum, GACRIA was superior to an IgA-capture assay in detecting anti-HAV and anti-HIV and GACELISA was equally accurate. Expand
Incidence and routes of transmission of hepatitis B virus in England and Wales, 1995-2000: implications for immunisation policy.
TLDR
The incidence of acute HBV infection in England and Wales has remained low, with a similar pattern of reported routes of transmission compared to the early 1990s, and the UK prevalence ofHBV infection is dependant on global rather than national immunisation policy. Expand
HUMAN PARVOVIRUS ARTHROPATHY
19 of 153 patients attending an early-synovitis clinic were shown to have been recently infected by the human parvovirus (HPV). 5 other patients had evidence of some other closely precedingExpand
Diagnostic assays with monoclonal antibodies for the human serum parvovirus-like virus (SPLV).
Monoclonal antibodies to the serum parvovirus-like virus (SPLV) were prepared by the hybridoma technique. They provided an antibody reagent which was used to develop solid phase antibody-captureExpand
National Surveillance of HIV‐1 Subtypes for England and Wales Design, Methods, and Initial Findings
TLDR
The findings suggest spread of infection of non‐B subtypes to heterosexuals born in the United Kingdom from individuals infected in regions of high prevalence is suggested. Expand
Novel assay for the detection of immunoglobulin G antihuman immunodeficiency virus in untreated saliva and urine
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that GACELISA HIV 1 + 2 tests on saliva or on urine are an accurate alternative to a conventional anti‐HIV test of blood. Expand
Transmission of Human Parvovirus B19 by Coagulation Factor Concentrates
TLDR
It is suggested that 8Y heat‐treated concentrate has a much reduced risk of transmitting B19 virus and, by implication, other less heat‐stable viruses such as human immunodeficiency virus. Expand
