Diagnostic value of glycoprotein band patterns of three serologic enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot assays for neurocysticercosis.

Parasitol Res 2020 Jun 26. Epub 2020 Jun 26.

Unidad de Neuroinflamación, Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas-Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México/Instituto Nacional de Neurología y Neurocirugía/Facultad de Medicina-Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico City, Mexico.

The enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot (EITB) assay to detect antibodies in serum is a complementary tool for the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis (NCC). Presence of at least one glycoprotein band corresponding to a Taenia solium (T. solium) antigen indicates a positive result; however, EITB assays have multiple glycoprotein bands, and previous work has suggested that band patterns may have additional diagnostic value.

Use of magnetic particles in the purification of IgM antibodies against Taenia solium.

Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica 2020 Jan-Mar;37(1):104-109. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Department of International Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, Estados Unidos.

The use of L protein coupled magnetic particles for the concentration and purification of immunoglobulin M (mIgM) monoclonal antibodies against Taenia solium was evaluated. Three concentration methods and different elution times were evaluated and the ratio of particles to the ratio of mIgM was optimized. It is demonstrated that: 1) with the use of magnetic particles, a previous concentration of mIgM is not required, which reduces the manipulation of the antibodies and improves the recovery, 2) the use of a binding buffer can be omitted, since the pH of most cell culture supernatants are neutral, and 3) longer elution times (~ 45 minutes) are needed to increase recovery to a level greater than 80%.
