Human Chlamydia trachomatis IgG ELISA kit is designed for analysing in-vitro quantitative concentrations of human IgA antibodies against Chlamydia trachomatis in serum and plasma samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit to a diagn. >95.0%.
Chlamydia trachomatis has been described as one of the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infections worldwide and also women are regarded as carrying the major burden of the disease. Chlamydial infection has been found to result in casing a cause disease in a number of different organ systems, which includes the genitourinary tract. C. trachomatis is a strong immunogen, which can stimulate both cell mediated and humoral immune responses. The general outcome of the chlamydial infection is largely dependent on the overall balance and interaction of cytokines that have been secreted by the activated lymphocytes. IFN-γ is regarded as an important factor which is vital in the host defence against Chlamydia, while on the other hand the susceptibility to the disease has been associated with enhanced expression of IL-10. The means that the changes to the immune system or even any disturbances which have been induced by C. trachomatis could either favour its own survival in the infected host or it could induce persistent infections.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgA antibodies against Chlamydia trachomatis using current human Chlamydia trachomatis IgG ELISA kit was to a diagn. >95.0%. The dynamic range for this assay is to a specific cut-off point.
