Relationship between type specific antibodies to herpes simplex virus and type specificity in human sera

Journal of Medical Virology

A quantitative analysis was carried out on the relationship between type specific neutralizing antibodies to herpes simplex virus and the type specificity, using a mutual absorbing procedure. Forty-two samples were selected among human sera, on the basis of type specificity expressed by the value of II/I index. All sera with values of less than 90 of II/I index contained only type 1 specific antibody, while those with values over 111 contained only type 2 specific antibody. When the values were between 90 and 110, type 1 specific antibody was present in all, and type 2 specific antibody was present in some serum samples.

Antibody Specificity

Antibodies produced by B cells are highly specific for antigen as a result of random gene recombination and somatic hypermutation and affinity maturation. As the main effector of the humoral immune system, antibodies can neutralize foreign cells. Find the latest research on antibody specificity here.
