Development of Human Toxo IgG ELISA Kit, and False-Positivity of Latex Agglutination Test for the Diagnosis of Toxoplasmosis

Development of Human Toxo IgG ELISA Kit, and False-Positivity of Latex Agglutination Test for the Diagnosis of Toxoplasmosis

Toxoplasma gondii is an intracellular zoonotic parasite that causes infection in a wide range of warm-blooded animals and humans. The main aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic value of the recombinant SAG1 antigen (rSAG1) for T. gondii–IgG screening through the Human Toxo IgG ELISA Kit (K). The rSAG1 was expressed in E. coli (DE3), and it was purified through metal-affinity chromatography. The rSAG1...

CD4 T cell help prevents CD8 T cell exhaustion and promotes control of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection

CD4 T cell help prevents CD8 T cell exhaustion and promotes control of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection

CD4 T cells are important for immunity to tuberculosis as a result of they produce cytokines, together with interferon-γ. Whether or not CD4 T cells act as “helper” cells to advertise optimum CD8 T cell responses throughout Mycobacterium tuberculosis is unknown. Utilizing two unbiased fashions, we present that CD4 T cell assist enhances CD8...

Endoscopic ultrasonographic diagnosis of pancreatic tuberculosis in immunocompetent patients-A case series from eastern India

Endoscopic ultrasonographic diagnosis of pancreatic tuberculosis in immunocompetent patients-A case series from eastern India

Tubercular involvement of pancreas is rare. It presents as a focal lesion of pancreas on cross sectional imaging. Endosonography with fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is important for a effectively timed presurgical evaluation. A retrospective evaluation was carried out on 117 circumstances of pancreatic focal mass current course of EUS-FNA at our institution over a interval...
