We tested 10 patient sera for the presence of immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to Candida albicans and for C. albicans antigens by immunoblot analysis (i.e., electrotransfer blot radioimmunoassay) (G. E. Smith and M. D. Summers, J. Virol. 39:125-137, 1981). We evaluated sera from two patients at risk for candidiasis, five patients with systemic candidiasis documented by culture, and two patients who had experienced transient candidemia. Both the specificity and the relative amount of IgG… CONTINUE READING
