Abstract

IgG antibody levels of patients with active pulmonary tuberculosis and PPD(-) or PPD( +) controls were investigated by ELISA method using Purified Protein Derivate(PPD) as the antigen. When compared with the control groups, the levels of IgG were found significantly higher in the sera of patients with active pulmonary tuberculosis.

We suggest that ELISA utilizing PPD as an antigen can be a helpful method in the differentiation of patients with active tuberculosis from healthy individuals and in the follow-up of the effects of antituberculosis treatment.
