Diagnosis of Penicillium marneffei infection by quantitation of urinary antigen by using an enzyme immunoassay.

Abstract:

Penicillium marneffei is a major cause of opportunistic infection in patients with AIDS in north and northeastern Thailand. A method for the quantitation of P. marneffei antigen in urine was developed by using fluorescein isothiocyanate-labelled purified rabbit hyperimmune immunoglobulin G in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
