Int J STD AIDS. 1994 Sep-Oct;5(5):310-7. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE

This paper briefly reviews the factors which influence the concentrations of proteins, particularly immunoglobulins, within the CSF and how antibodies which are locally synthesized within the central nervous system can be detected by the laboratory. The use of nitrocellulose immunoblotting for the identification of antibodies which are specific to Treponema pallidum and Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type-1 are discussed.
