Immunohistochemical studies on specificity and affinity of the BB5-antibody against human parathyroid tissue.

Localisation of parathyroid tissue in hyperparathyroidism may be difficult with standard methods. Immunoscintigraphy, using radiolabeled antibodies against epitopes of human parathyroid cells, could be a promising alternative. Therefore, we studied the necessary preconditions, whether the so-called BB5-antibody, directed against parathyroid cell membranes… CONTINUE READING
