Fab preparations of sheep polyclonal anti-digoxin Abs have proven useful for reversal of the toxic effects of digoxin overdoses in patients. Unfortunately, the use of foreign species proteins in humans is limited because of the potential for immunological responses that include hypersensitivity reactions and acute anaphylaxis. Immunization of recently(More)
The availability of high-affinity anti-digoxin monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) offers the potential for their use as models for the characterization of the relationship between receptor structure and cardiac glycoside binding. We have characterized the binding of anthroylouabain (AO), a fluorescent derivative of the cardiac glycoside ouabain, to mAbs 26-10,(More)
Since the initial report of the development of methodology to generate high-affinity digitalis-specific (digoxin) antibodies, these antibodies have proven extremely useful tools to monitor digoxin levels in digitalized patients and, as Fab fragments, to reverse toxic digoxin effects in life-threatening digoxin overdoses. These antibodies (both(More)
