• diagnostic
  • Serologic tests have received a great deal of emphasis as diagnostic aids in suspected infections with Toxoplasma , the methylene-blue dye test being the most widely used. (ajtmh.org)
  • sera
  • These figures were confirmed by randomised FTA-ABS tests on 504 sera with repeat AMHA-TP tests. (bmj.com)
  • The test was performed with unconcentrated human sera and the lines stained in an aqueous solution of Ponceau red. (ajtmh.org)
  • Cross-reactivity with sera of patients with other parasitic infections was noted with indirect hemagglutination but not with counterimmunoelectrophoresis. (ajtmh.org)
  • There was no cross-reactivity with sera of patients with autoimmune disorders by either test. (ajtmh.org)
  • occur
  • These investigations showed that (1) non-specific positive gonococcal antibody test results occur rarely, (2) at least half the people who have had gonorrhoea remain seropositive (with titres of 1/40 to 1/160), and (3) a positive test result is more significant the younger the patient and the higher the titre. (bmj.com)
  • After the transfusion of incompatible blood, hemagglutination may occur in the bloodstream and cause severe (sometimes fatal) complications. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • infections
  • To evaluate the usefulness of the test result the following population groups were studied: 1376 patients undergoing medical examination for gonorrhoea (386 had gonorrhoea), 1384 healthy people aged 15-65, 54 patients with meningococcal disease, 30 children with respiratory tract infection, and 254 patients with evidence of various diseases other than neisserial infections that might be associated with symptoms of arthritis.

  • disease
  • A CPV test should be given as early as possible if CPV is suspected in order to begin early treatment and increase survival rate if the disease is found. (wikipedia.org)
  • General biosecurity protocols including adequate quarantine, testing, and disinfection can help prevent the entry or spread of the disease into a herd. (wikipedia.org)
  • results
  • When isolated reactivity or non-reactivity in the AMHA-TP test was investigated an estimated margin of error of 0.7% probably wrongly non-reactive and 0.008% presumably false non-reactive results were found. (bmj.com)
  • However, the test is relatively cumbersome and time intensive (few days) relative to EIA kits that give quick results (usually several minutes to a few hours). (wikipedia.org)
