Similarly, the antibody kinetics of Zika virus NS1-based IgG, envelope-based IgG, and PRNT suggested either relatively early IgG seroconversion or cross-reactivity during acute stages of infection resulting from unspecific immune responses against other flaviviruses (11) (Figure 2, panel D).
The STELLUX[R] Chemi Glucagon ELISA is highly specific with 100% cross-reactivity to glucagon, and does not cross-react with other proglucagon peptides such as oxyntomodulin, glicentin and the incretins glucagon-like peptide-1 and gastric inhibitory polypeptide.
showed this dot immunogold filtration assay for sparganosis mansoni has light cross-reactivity to clonorchiasis (8%) and serious cross-reactivity to paragonimiasis (52%).[6] Although Spirometra mansoni spargana could parasitize in many different human tissues, the parasitizing in lung is infrequent.[7] What's most important is that sparganosis mansoni is usually caused by the ingestion of raw meat of frogs or snakes.[7]
In-house testing demonstrates that this kit is highly sensitive to anti-Zika virus IgG and displays minimal cross-reactivity with dengue virus IgG antibodies.

Dietary protein cross-reactivity research has received limited attention in type 1 diabetes.
More recent reports have noted cross-reactivity of commercially available polyclonal PAX8 immunostain antibodies with another pairedbox transcription factor, PAX5 [5].
Immunologic cross-reactivity occurs when adaptive immune response against one antigen also occurs to another antigen with amino acid structural similarity.
Rather, we used biopsies from patients with intestinal spirochetosis to evaluate the potential of cross-reactivity of a commercially available polyclonal antibody directed against T pallidum.
