• Results show that detection of antinuclear antibodies by this sensor agrees quantitatively with the clinically accepted enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method. (springer.com)
  • This sensing platform has the following advantages: label-free and real-time detection capability, simple to construct and use, highly sensitive, and does not require a secondary antibody. (springer.com)
  • The two patients who had anticentromere and anti-Scl-70 antibodies had also Sj√∂gren's syndrome and scleroderma diagnosis, respectively. (hindawi.com)
  • Circulating antibody to C dificile toxin was demonstrated in that patient, whereas 11 other patients with PMC-positive fecal toxin, but without arthritis, did not have circulating antibody to C dificile toxin (3). (docme.ru)
  • A fiberoptic evanescent-wave sensor has been developed for the measurement of antinuclear antibodies in sera from patients and healthy individuals. (springer.com)
  • The number and variety of known antinuclear and anticytoplasmic antibodies that occur in human disease have continued to grow at a pace that threatens to leave the clinician, both specialist and generalist, confused. (annals.org)
  • We wanted to keep ANA IFA as our principle screening method, possibly reserving multiplex or ELISA methods to determine specific antibodies-a decision with which our physicians concurred. (aacc.org)
  • It certainly detects more antibodies than any other method, but ELISA and multiplex techniques specifically identify which antibody a patient has as opposed to providing a pattern in the IFA procedure. (aacc.org)
