Studies on optimising rubella virus haemagglutination-inhibitor tests

Deutsche medizinische Wochenschrift
J LeidelH J Eggers


Immuno-electrophoretic and serological studies were undertaken to characterise the non-specific serum inhibitor of rubella haemagglutination. The majority of such inhibitor effects come from the beta(1)-lipoproteins. In addition, small inhibitory effects which were due to alpha(1)-lipoproteins were noted in some sera. The result of the tests is influenced less by removing the inhibitor than by conditions of incubation of the serum-antigen mixture, especially pH. The test is more sensitive if it is not performed at optimal pH for haemagglutination.

ApoE, Lipids & Cholesterol

Serum cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (APOB)-containing lipoproteins (very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), immediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein A (LPA)) and the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio are all connected in diseases. Here is the latest research.
