A Rapid Immunochromatography Test Based on Hcp1 Is a Potential Point-of-Care Test for Serological Diagnosis of Melioidosis
Melioidosis is a fatal infectious disease caused by the environmental bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei. It is highly endemic in Asia and northern Australia but neglected in many other tropical countries. Melioidosis ...
Sensitivity and specificity of a lateral flow immunoassay (LFI) in serum samples for diagnosis of melioidosis
Culture is the gold standard for the diagnosis of melioidosis, an infection caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei. Here we evaluate a lateral flow immunoassay (LFI) to detect B. pseudomallei capsular polysaccharide (CPS) in ...
Development of Subunit Vaccines That Provide High-Level Protection and Sterilizing Immunity against Acute Inhalational Melioidosis
Burkholderia pseudomallei, the etiologic agent of melioidosis, causes severe disease in humans and animals. Diagnosis and treatment of melioidosis can be challenging, and no licensed vaccines currently exist. Several studies ...
Contribution of murine IgG Fc regions to antibody binding to the capsule of Burkholderia pseudomallei
Immunoglobulin G3 (IgG3) is the predominant IgG subclass elicited in response to polysaccharide antigens in mice. This specific subclass has been shown to crosslink its fragment crystallizable (Fc) regions following binding ...
