About Immunotoxicity

Anti-KLH, anti-SRBC, anti-tetanus toxoid, anti-DNP and anti-TNP IgM and IgG are routinely used as biomarkers of immunotoxicity. Life Diagnostics manufactures ELISA kits for these important biomarkers in mice, rats, chickens, and monkeys. In preclinical studies, animals are immunized with an immunogen such as KLH while being dosed with a drug candidate. Serum is collected at either 7 or ~ 21 days and the levels of anti-KLH IgM and IgG are determined and compared with those in a control group that was not exposed to the drug. A decrease in anti-KLH levels in the treatment group provides evidence of immunosuppression.

Immunotoxicity ELISA Kits from Life Diagnostics(Pennsylvania, USA)

Our rat and monkey anti-KLH IgG ELISA kits have recently been evaluated and gained unqualified approval in a respected independent laboratory (Validation of an ELISA assay for quantification of anti-KLH IgG in rat and monkey sera. CIT, Evreux, France. Armelle N. Guyen, Sandrine Arthaud, Phillipe Ancian and Roy Forster. Toxicology Letters, Volume 180, Supplement 1, 5 October 2008, Page S211).
