Study on the diagnosis of pulmonary acariasis with ELISA

Study on the diagnosis of pulmonary acariasis with ELISA

Avidin Biotin Complex-ELISA (ABC-ELISA) and Staphylococcus Protein A-ELISA (SPA-ELISA) were used for the detection of the antibodies against Dermatophagoides mites in sera from 51 patients with pulmonary acariasis (i.e. house-dust mite allergy). The results show that with ABC-ELISA the positive rate was 82.35% and with SPA-ELISA the positive rate was 52.94%.
