Monoclonal Antibody 3F5-5E5 and P107 Diagnostic Markers and Putative Vaccine Antigen for Moraxella Catarrhalis and Supplemental Mab 4G5
Monoclonal antibodies, proteins, nucleic acid sequences and lipoologosaccharides specific to Moraxella catarrhalis. These materials are useful for designing a much-needed diagnostic test.
This invention includes monoclonal antibodies, proteins, nucleic acid seqeunces and lipoologosaccharides (LOS) which are specific to Moraxella catarrhalis. These materials are useful for designing a much-needed diagnostic test. The ability to diagnosis this form of otitis media would be very valuable for pediatric applications. Further, compositions and methods useful for distinguishing between M. catarrhalis serotypes are also available.
