    IgG subclasses were measured in sera of 47 patients with acute hepatitis A during the course of the disease. IgG1 and IgG3 serum levels were found to be elevated, whereas IgG2 and IgG4 subclass concentrations did not differ from that found in healthy control individuals. These findings indicate...

    A new concept of IgG subclass such as IgG4-related systemic disease including autoimmune pancreatitis, characterized by a high-serum IgG4 level, has been proposed. Our aim was to investigate serum IgG subclass levels in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). IgG subclass levels of sera from 72 patients with...

    The article discusses the comparison of serum concentrations of IgG subclasses, the ratio of serum IgG subclass to total IgG, and glomerular deposition of IgG subclass between 7 membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) patients, 21 membranous nephropathy patients, and 9 lupus nephritis...

    We experienced two patients with IgG subclass deficiency who suffered from chronic glomerulonephritis (GN). Patient 1 was a 17-year-old girl with IgG subclass deficiency (combined deficiency of IgG2 and IgG4). Renal biopsy was performed when she was aged 16 years, and she was diagnosed with...

    Abstract  The immunoglobulin G class (total IgG) and subclass (IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4) antibody responses to the spirurid worm Gnathostoma spinigerum were analyzed by immunoblotting technique for the antibodies’ potential use in the serodiagnosis of human...

    lgG subclasses differ in their biologic and chemical properties, such as complement fixation, protein and cellular binding, and placental transfer. In this study, IgG subclasses of anti-Ro/SSA antibodies in subacute cutaneous lupus (SCLE) and neonatal lupus (NLE) are examined in the serum and in...

    Immunoglobulins in chronic renal failure of childhood: Effects of dialysis modalities. Background. It is not clear whether low serum levels of IgG (subclasses), previously demonstrated in children on peritoneal dialysis (PD), are related to the PD procedure or to factors associated with chronic...
