Identification of Mycobacterium leprae antigens in tissues of leprosy patients using monoclonal antibodies.

Abstract

Five monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) directed against antigens of Mycobacterium leprae were tested for their ability to bind to components of tissue sections prepared from biopsies taken from patients with various forms of leprosy. Immunoperoxidase was the most successful marker system used, although immunofluorescence and alkaline phosphatase were also… (More)
