Blastomyces dermatitidis lysate antigens: antibody detection in serial serum specimens from dogs with blastomycosis.
Mycopathologia. 2003; 156(4):289-94.M

Abstract

Yeast phase lysate antigens prepared from different isolates of Blastomyces dermatitidis (T-58, dog-Tennessee; T-27, polar bear-Tennessee; ERC-2, dog-Wisconsin; ER-3, woodpile-Wisconsin) were compared with respect to the detection of antibodies (indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay-ELISA, peroxidase system) in 126 serial serum specimens (pre-treatment, 30 and 60 days post-treatment with itraconazole) from 42 dogs with diagnosed blastomycosis. Mean absorbance values observed with the four lysate antigens at the three treatment intervals ranged from the most reactive to the least reactive as follows: T-58 (0.270, 0.210, 0.136); T-27 (0.209, 0.156, 0.096); ER-3 (0.189, 0.144, 0.089) and ERC-2 (0.158, 0.129, 0.080). Even though variations in reactivity were evidenced, the lysates prepared from isolates from various geographical regions and sources were all efficacious as antigens for the immunodiagnosis of canine blastomycosis.
