Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9963349A1] The present invention relates to a method for the detection of antibodies and/or antibody isotypes specific for at least two different phases of an infection. The method of the invention is characterized by the simultaneous incubation of a sample from a patient with at least two preferably antigenic compounds. These compounds comprise an epitope that is recognized by an antibody/antibody belonging to a particular isotype wherein said antibody is specifically occurring in one of said phases of said infection. The method of the invention also requires that at least two epitopes are present in the incubation reaction that are specific for different phases of the infection and thus bind antibodies/antibody isotypes specific for said at least two different phases of said infection. The invention also relates to a kit useful for carrying out the method of the invention.
