The role of anti-sperm secretory IgA has recently received attention since some workers feel it plays an important role in the prognosis of the immunologically infertile couple. Current methods used in our laboratory cannot separately detect anti-sperm secretory IgA. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) utilizing specific monoclonal antibodies to secretory IgA was used to detect anti-sperm secretory IgA as well as anti-sperm monomeric IgA and IgG in serum and seminal plasma of a sperm… CONTINUE READING
