Clinical and diagnostic laboratory immunology

Differences in humoral responses to the p24 antigen between Ethiopian and Swedish human immunodeficiency virus type 1-infected patients may suggest influences from a T-helper 2-like phenotype.


PMID 9302219

Abstract

The levels of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 p24 antibodies and p24 antigen among 256 Ethiopians and Africans and 86 Swedes were compared. The elevated levels of total anti-p24 immunoglobulin G (IgG) and anti-p24 IgG4 among the Ethiopian and African patients suggest influences from T-helper-cell type 2-like responses.
