The role of the solution environment for a light-scattering, latex-particle-enhanced, homogeneous immunoassay of C-reactive protein (CRP) has been investigated in order to assess and optimize the immunoagglutination response. Latex particles of 50-170-nm sizes were covalently coupled with an IgG polyclonal antibody and subjected to an extensive optimization(More)
The influence of a variety and combination of both ionic surfactants and different chain lengths of the polyelectrolyte poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) on the performance characteristics (with particular reference to signal response) of a homogeneous, latex agglutination immunoassay was investigated. The test analyte was human serum C-reactive protein (CRP),(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of tissue-engineered mucosa (TEM) as a model for studying the acute effects of ionizing radiation (IR) on the oral mucosa. TEM and native non-keratinizing oral mucosa (NNOM) were exposed to a single dose of 16.5Gy and harvested at 1, 6, 24, 48, and 72h post-irradiation. DNA damage induced by IR was(More)
