A protein microarray assay for serological determination of antigen-specific antibody responses following Clostridium difficile infection (2018)
Journal Article
Negm, O. H., Hamed, M. R., & Monaghan, T. M. (in press). A protein microarray assay for serological determination of antigen-specific antibody responses following Clostridium difficile infection. Journal of Visualized Experiments, 136, doi:10.3791/57399

We provide a detailed overview of a novel high-throughput protein microarray assay for the determination of anti-C. difficile antibody levels in human sera and in separate preparations of polyclonal IVIg. The protocol describes the methodological ste...

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd TNF receptor associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS) is an autoinflammatory disease caused by mutations in TNF Receptor 1 (TNFR1). Current therapies for TRAPS are limited and do not target the pro-inflammatory signalling pathways tha...

Profiling humoral immune responses to Clostridium difficile-specific antigens by protein microarray analysis (2015)
Journal Article
Negm, O. H., Hamed, M. R., Dilnot, E. M., Shone, C. C., Marszalowska, I., Lynch, M., …Monaghan, T. M. (2015). Profiling humoral immune responses to Clostridium difficile-specific antigens by protein microarray analysis. Clinical and Vaccine Immunology, 22(9), doi:10.1128/CVI.00190-15

Clostridium difficile is an anaerobic, Gram-positive, and spore-forming bacterium that is the leading worldwide infective cause of hospital-acquired and antibiotic-associated diarrhea. Several studies have reported associations between humoral immuni... Read More about Profiling humoral immune responses to Clostridium difficile-specific antigens by protein microarray analysis.
