DETECTION OF PORIN ANTIGEN IN SERUM FOR EARLY DIAGNOSIS OF TYPHOID INFECTIONAbstract
Typhoid fever is serious public health problem in many parts of the world.Typhoid fever, also known as enteric fever, is an illness caused by the bacterium, Salmonella typhi. The immunology of typhoid fever in man has been the subject of a recent review. The diagnosis and subsequent treatment could reduce infection complication towards acute illness. It is difficult at present time, to diagnose typhoid fever early in its course. The immunological assay can be designed for the earlier detection. The detection of specific bacterial antigen from body fluid and serum was suggested to be an important diagnostic method in infections disease. The EIA i.e., Enzyme Immuno Assay can be carried out which is found to be very significant. The results are discussed here in relation to the concept of detection of fever in early stages.
