To summarize, 2 guidelines (ACG and BSG) recommend duodenal biopsy as a mandatory test in addition to the serological
studies for diagnosis of CD, while 2 other guidelines (ESPGHAN and WGA) do not make duodenal biopsy mandatory for the diagnosis of CD and according to these, positive serological
tests for relevant antibodies are enough for diagnosis of CD.
The diagnostic sensitivity of serological
tests may be low when they are used in cases of acute toxoplasmosis (GYIMESI et al.
Before 2006, Q fever serological
diagnostic testing available to our facility was the complement fixation method.
Later in 1963 during a study on 120 patients of DLE, Rowell found distinct clinical and serological
findings in 4 female patients having EM-like lesions, positive RF, positive anti-SjT (analogous to anti-Ro/La antibody) and speckled pattern of ANA.
Aside from mutations in S gene region, the presence of heterologous subtype-specific antibodies, superinfection with a new (second) hepatitis B virus (HBV) strain, occult HBV reactivation and false positivity for anti-HBs are the other factors considered to be associated with this serological
It is for these reasons that alternative strategies including serological
and molecular methods have been developed for the diagnosis of brucellosis.
Table 2 shows that, in the group medical records, respondents who had dental treatment, thalassemia, hemophilia, and blood transfusion do not have a correlation with hepatitis C serological
RESULTS: Of the total 233 serum samples tested, 78 samples turned positive for one or more of three serological
The investigation provides documentation of the serological
problem and the identification of a blood group variant.
The most important finding of the 2012 survey is the decrease in the percentage of transfusion services performing a serological
weak D test on patients who test negative by direct agglutination with anti-D reagents (from 58.
Reliability and precision continues with the CAPP Harmony serological
pipettes which are ideal for cell culture and tissue culture labs.
The title of his thesis was "Epidemiological Haematological and Serological
