Antigen-antibody interaction- Complement fixation

In this article, I briefly describe complement fixation, which is an antigen-antibody interaction. Antigen-antibody interaction The antigen-antibody interaction is a bimolecular association. This does not lead to an irreversible chemical alteration in either the antibody or the antigen. This association involves many non-covalent interactions between the antigenic determinant (epitope) of the antigen and the variable-region … Read more >>

The antigen-antibody interaction- Immunofluorescence

In this article, I briefly describe the method of immunofluorescence, which is an antigen-antibody interaction. Antigen-antibody interaction The Interaction between antigen and antibody is a bimolecular association, which does not lead to an irreversible chemical alteration in either the antibody or the antigen. The antigen-antibody association involves many non-covalent interactions between the antigenic determinant (epitope) … Read more >>

Type-III Hypersensitivity

In this article, I briefly explain type-III hypersensitivity along with its effects. Hypersensitivity Hypersensitive reactions are the inflammatory reactions within the humoral or cell-mediated branches of the immune system. These reactions cause extensive tissue damage, or occasionally death. The reactions are immediate or may be delayed type depending on the symptoms. In 1963, P.G.H. Gell … Read more >>

The antigen-antibody interaction- Radioimmunoassay

In this article, I briefly describe the radioimmunoassay, which is a process of antigen-antibody interaction. Antigen-antibody interaction The Interaction between antigen and antibody is a bimolecular association, which does not lead to an irreversible chemical alteration in either the antibody or the antigen. The antigen-antibody association involves many non-covalent interactions between the antigenic determinant (epitope) … Read more >>

The antigen-antibody interaction- Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA)

In this article, I briefly describe the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, which is an antigen-antibody interaction. Antigen-antibody interaction The Interaction between antigen and antibody is a bimolecular association, which does not lead to an irreversible chemical alteration in either the antibody or the antigen. The antigen-antibody association involves many non-covalent interactions between the antigenic determinant (epitope) … Read more >>

Type-II hypersensitivity

In this article, I briefly describe type-II hypersensitivity with its effects. Hypersensitivity The inflammatory reactions within the humoral or cell-mediated branches of the immune system, causing extensive tissue damage or occasionally death, are known as hypersensitive reactions. The reactions are immediate or may be delayed type depending on the symptoms. In 1963, P.G.H. Gell and … Read more >>

Type-I hypersensitive reaction

In this article, I briefly describe type-I hypersensitive reactions and their effects. What is hypersensitivity? Hypersensitivity pertains to the inflammatory reactions, within the humoral or cell-mediated branches of the immune system, causing extensive tissue damage or occasionally death. The reactions are immediate or may be delayed type depending on the symptoms. P.G.H. Gell and Robin … Read more >>

The antigen-antibody interaction: Agglutination reaction

In this article, I briefly describe agglutination reaction, which is a type of antigen-antibody interaction. Antigen-antibody interaction The Interaction between antigen and antibody is a bimolecular association, which does not lead to an irreversible chemical alteration in either the antibody or the antigen. The antigen-antibody association involves many non-covalent interactions between the antigenic determinant (epitope) … Read more >>

The antigen-antibody interaction: Precipitation reaction

In this article, I briefly explain the precipitation reaction, which is a type of antigen-antibody interaction. Antigen-antibody interaction The Interaction between antigen and antibody is a bimolecular association, which does not lead to an irreversible chemical alteration in either the antibody or the antigen. The antigen-antibody association involves many non-covalent interactions between the antigenic determinant … Read more >>

The treatment for autoimmunity

In this article, I briefly describe the methods of treatment for autoimmune diseases. Autoimmunity and its causes The immune responses of an organism against its healthy cells and tissues give rise to a condition known as autoimmunity. It is the presence of antibodies and T lymphocytes against self-antigens. The diseases linked to autoimmunity are known … Read more >>
