To determine antibodies to the infectious bursal disease virus in Lithuania the four broiler breeder flocks were observed from the 1st day of age to the 60th week. The infectious bursal disease virus was determined by ELISA. High levels of antibody titres (higher then 7 group titre) were established in the blood sera of 1st and 2nd broiler breeder flocks with average of titres from 7 308 to 9 478. The coefficient of variation ranged from 17.3% to 36.9%. The antibody titres in 3rd and 4th groups blood sera were from 2 350 to 4 877, and the coefficient of variation ranged from 15.8% to 34.8%, respectively. The investigated poultry, irrespective of age, have shown a permanent antibody titre for the all research periods. In addition, the vertical transmission remained significant.

    Summary: Neurocysticercosis (NCC), infection of the central nervous system with larva of Taenia solium, presents in over 60% of patients in India as a solitary cysticercus granuloma (SCG). The low cyst number in these patients frequently results in an insignificant humoral response....

    Albeit strictly controlled in immune function and in ontogenesis, autoimmunity may develop upon inflammatory response to pathogens, with harmful consequences to host. Findings of autoimmune-like responses, observed in HIVinfected patients, might play a key role in modulating the natural history...

    BACKGROUND: Blood group serology plays a vital role in transfusion medicine. The Bombay (Oh) phenotype is characterized by the absence of A, B, and H antigens on red cells and occurs rarely, especially in tribal populations of India. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This is a field-based random population...

    Gametocytes and sporogonic stages are responsible for the spread of disease and drug resistance in the population. Sexual stage immunity affects the infectiousness of gametocytes to mosquitoes. Specific antibodies including anti-Pfs48/45 and anti-Pfs230 antibodies are found in individuals with...

    Antibodies against the 19 kDa C-terminal fragment of merozoite surface protein 1 (MSP119) are a major component of the invasion-inhibitory response in individuals immune to malaria. We report here the acquisition of MSP119-specific invasion-inhibitory antibodies in a group of transmigrants who...

    In quantitative immunoelectron microscopy, subcellular compartments that are preferentially labelled with colloidal gold particles can be identified by estimating labelling densities (LDs) and relative labelling indices (RLIs). Hitherto, this approach has been limited to compartments which are...
