Assignment of additional anticapsular antibody concentrations to the Neisseria meningitidis group A, C, Y, and W-135 meningococcal standard reference serum CDC1992

Clin Diagn Lab Immunol. 2002 May;9(3):725-6. doi: 10.1128/cdli.9.3.725-726.2002.


We assigned additional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay antibody concentrations (immunoglobulin G [IgG], IgM, and IgA, and total) to the Neisseria meningitidis standard reference serum CDC1992 for groups Y and W-135 to 12 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quality control sera. These assignments will supplement previous assignments and will aid in the evaluation of present and developing vaccines.
