The clinical relevance of IgM and IgA anti-pneumococcal polysaccharide ELISA assays in patients with suspected antibody deficiency.

Clin Exp Immunol 2021 Aug 1;205(2):213-221. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Department of Tranzo, Tilburg University, Tilburg, the Netherlands.

Unlike immunoglobulin (Ig)G pneumococcal polysaccharide (PnPS)-antibodies, PnPS IgA and IgM-antibodies are not routinely determined for the assessment of immunocompetence. It is not yet known whether an isolated inability to mount a normal IgM or IgA-PnPS response should be considered a relevant primary antibody deficiency (PAD). We studied the clinical relevance of anti-PnPS IgM and IgA-assays in patients with suspected primary immunodeficiency in a large teaching hospital in 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. Read More

A surface plasmon resonance based approach for measuring response to pneumococcal vaccine.

Sci Rep 2021 03 22;11(1):6502. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Drug Discovery Unit, Health Research Institute La Fe, Valencia, Spain.

Incidence of pneumococcal disease has increased worldwide in recent years. Response to pneumococcal vaccine is usually measured using the multiserotype enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) pneumococcal test. However, this approach presents several limitations. Read More

Comparison between a new multiplex electrochemiluminescence assay and the WHO reference enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to measure serum antibodies against pneumococcal serotype-specific polysaccharides.

Vaccine 2019 04 15;37(16):2208-2215. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

GSK, Rue de l'Institut 89, 1330 Rixensart, Belgium. Electronic address:

Background: Two electrochemiluminescence (ECL) assays were developed which, together, can simultaneously measure serum antibodies against pneumococcal capsular polysaccharides (PnPS) for 17 serotypes. The assays were validated for the 13 PnPS included in the 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13). As recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), we compared the ECL assays with the WHO reference enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and derived a threshold corresponding to the 0.

Assignment of weight-based immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) and IgG2 units in antipneumococcal reference serum lot 89-S(F) for pneumococcal polysaccharide serotypes 1, 4, 5, 7F, 9V, and 18C.

Clin Diagn Lab Immunol 2005 Jan;12(1):218-23

Wyeth Vaccines Research, 401 N. Middletown Rd., 180/149B, Pearl River, NY 10965, USA.

Weight-based assignments for immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) and IgG2 subclass antibodies to Streptococcus pneumoniae capsular polysaccharides (PnPs) in antipneumococcal standard reference serum lot 89-S (lot 89-S), also known as lot 89-SF, have been determined for serotypes 1, 4, 5, 7F, 9V, and 18C. This extends the usefulness of lot 89-S beyond the IgG1 and IgG2 subclass assignments for serotypes 3, 6B, 14, 19F, and 23F made previously (A. Soininen, H. Read More

Method for simultaneous measurement of antibodies to 23 pneumococcal capsular polysaccharides.

Clin Diagn Lab Immunol 2003 Sep;10(5):744-50

Biomonitoring and Health Assessment Branch, Division of Applied Research and Technology, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226, USA.

We describe a fluorescent covalent microsphere immunoassay (FCMIA) method for the simultaneous (multiplexed) measurement of immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to 23 pneumococcal capsular polysaccharide (PnPS) serotypes present in the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23) licensed by the Food and Drug Administration, i.e., PnPSs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6B, 7F, 8, 9N, 9V, 10A, 11A, 12F, 14, 15B, 17F, 18C, 19A, 19F, 20, 22F, 23F, and 33F.
