AIMS To detect the presence of human herpes virus 6 (HHV6) and endogenous biotin in paraffin wax embedded and frozen salivary glands. METHODS Two stage indirect and streptavidin-biotin immunoperoxidase techniques were used to visualise the antigens. RESULTS HHV6 could not be shown in any of the tissues. However, considerable endogenous biotin antigenicity was detected in the glandular elements of the paraffin wax embedded material. CONCLUSIONS Results obtained with avidin-biotin detection… CONTINUE READING
