Detection of acute measles infections by indirect and mu-capture enzyme immunoassays for immunoglobulin M antibodies and measles immunoglobulin G antibody avidity enzyme immunoassay.


An avidity test for measles IgG was developed and applied to the study of IgG immunoglobulin maturation kinetics in follow-up sera from 12 patients with known acute primary and convalescent measles and sera from blood donors. The avidity of the IgG anti-measles responses was measured using the 8 M urea elution technique, the results being expressed as the… (More)
