Clinical Applications of Gene Editing Technologies: HIV

Clinical Applications of Gene Editing Technologies: HIV

With the event of antiretroviral therapy, HIV-1 infection is now manageable as a chronic disease. However, HIV remains a worldwide epidemic responsible for considerable mortality and morbidity. Although highly active antiretroviral therapy (HARRT) effectively suppresses viral infection replication and even reduces viral loads in HIV patients, its limitations include patient compliance, side effects of long-term…

The way to Antibody Validation standards and its Challenges

The way to Antibody Validation standards and its Challenges

An Antibody is one of the most universally used reagents in science research, clinical tests and diagnostics. Regardless of their well-known use and the considerable investment of time and money that their benefits represent, no standard guidelines define how antibodies should be validated before use. What is Antibody validation? Validation is an experimental proof and…

Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay Principle and Elisa Test Procedures.

Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay Principle and Elisa Test Procedures.

Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is also known as an enzyme immunoassay (EIA). ELISA is defined as a biochemical technique used in many applications, including microbiology, blood screening, veterinary, and immunology, to detect antigens and antibodies present in a sample. ELISA technology is considered an essential diagnostic tool in plant and medicine pathology. It is also…

Molecular and Cellular biology Applications of Lectin Conjugates

Molecular and Cellular biology Applications of Lectin Conjugates

Lectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins present in nearly all plants and a few animals as well. The word Lectins originated from a Latin word called ‘Legree,’ which means to select or pick. Lectins do not create any antigenic stimulation inside the immune system, but they do have the necessary capacity to bind analogously to an antibody.…

The Comprehensive Range of Monoclonal and Polyclonal antibodies against Infectious Agents

The Comprehensive Range of Monoclonal and Polyclonal antibodies against Infectious Agents

An antibody is a significant component hosting immune responses to viral pathogens, or other foreign invaders, such as chemicals, toxins, and pollens referred to as antigens. Antibodies can change to be highly specific to viral antigen-binding because of their unique maturation process. When an unknown substance invades the body, the immune system can identify it…

Range of Cytokines and Chemokines and its Clinical Significance

Range of Cytokines and Chemokines and its Clinical Significance

Cytokines and chemokines are referred to as immune-modulating agents that intercede and amend the responses of the system. The term “cytokine” is generated by two different Greek words: “cyto” meaning cell and “kinos” meaning movement. On the other hand, “chemokines” is a family unit of small cytokines, secreted by cells. Cytokines play an important role…
