Comparison of radio-immunoassay and lymphocytotoxicity inhibition techniques for the determination of beta2 microglobulin

Journal of Immunological Methods
C Vincent, J P Revillard


Rabbit anti-human beta2 microglobulin antisera can lyse human lymphocytes in the presence of rabbit complement. Inhibition of the lymphocytotoxic reaction by highly purified beta2m was applied to the measurement of beta2m concentration in biological fluids. Parallel determinations were also performed using a radioimmunoassay. Lymphocytotoxicity inhibition is simple and more sensitive than radial immunodiffusion but less sensitive than the radioimmunoassay. beta2m was measured by these two techniques in serum and urine from normal individuals, uremic or transplanted patients.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
