  • PurposeThe quality of an antibody response is determined by both the concentration and the strength of antigen-binding, or avidity, of the antibodies produced. Currently, only antibody concentration is routinely evaluated in the clinical assessment of humoral immunity. Here we studied correlations of avidities and concentrations of antibodies to pneumococcal polysaccharides with immunologic and clinical characteristics of patients with recurrent infections.MethodsWe measured concentration and… CONTINUE READING
