Impaired Humoral Immune Response Against Mycobacterial 65-kDa Heat Shock Protein (HSP65) in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Abstract

Since only scarce data are available on the immune response against heat shock proteins (HSP) in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), we have measured with an ELISA method serum levels of IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies to mycobacterial HSP65 and human HSP60 in 66 patients with Crohn's disease (CD), 42 patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), and 126 age- and… (More)
