    Abstract: Provided herein are compositions and methods for detecting and/or diagnosing a Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) infection in a subject. It is a surprising finding of the present invention that an S. aureus infection may be detected by using one or more antigens selected from the group consisting of an IsdA antigen, IsdB antigen, CHIPS antigen, and a SCIN antigen. In some embodiments, these S. aureus antigens are used to detect antibodies secreted by the plasmablasts from the subject.

  • Patent number: 5650324
    Abstract: Monoclonal antibodies have been prepared which are of the IgG isotype and are highly specific for horseradish peroxidase. One group of antibodies inhibits at least about 95% of the normal activity of horseradish peroxidase when bound to the enzyme. A second group of antibodies inhibits less than about 20% of the enzymatic activity when bound to the enzyme, but prevents the binding of the antibodies from the first group. The antibodies in either group can be conjugated to specific binding ligands such as drugs or hormones.
