EFECTO PROZONA PDF

If the antibodies agglutinate with the antigen to form immune complexes , then the test is interpreted as positive. However, if too many antibodies are present that can bind to the antigen, then the antigenic sites are coated by antibodies, and few or no antibodies directed toward the pathogen are able to bind more than one antigenic particle. Because no agglutination occurs, the test is interpreted as negative. In this case, the result is a false negative. The range of relatively high antibody concentrations within which no reaction occurs is called the prozone.

If the antibodies agglutinate with the antigen to form immune complexes , then the test is interpreted as positive. However, if too many antibodies are present that can bind to the antigen, then the antigenic sites are coated by antibodies, and few or no antibodies directed toward the pathogen are able to bind more than one antigenic particle. Because no agglutination occurs, the test is interpreted as negative.

In this case, the result is a false negative. The range of relatively high antibody concentrations within which no reaction occurs is called the prozone. In this case, no sandwich can be formed by the capturing antibody, the antigen and the detection antibody.

In this case, free antigen is in competition with captured antigen for detection antibody binding. The serological test is mainly seen in the precipitation reaction. The antibody that fails to react is known as the blocking antibody and prevents the precipitating antibody from binding to the antigens. Thus the proper precipitation reaction does not take place. However, when the serum is diluted, the blocking antibody is as well and its concentration decreases enough for the proper precipitation reaction to occur.

Thomas was interested in pursuing this physiologic research further, and remained so for decades afterward, but his career took him in other directions and he was not aware of anyone having pursued it by the time of his memoir.

Definición Efecto prozona

In this case, the result is a false negative. The hook effect or the prozone effect is a type of interference which plagues certain immunoassays and nephelometric assaysresulting in false negatives or inaccurately low results. However, when the serum is diluted, the blocking antibody is as sfecto and its concentration decreases enough for the proper precipitation reaction to occur. Examples include high levels of syphilis antibodies in HIV patients or high levels of cryptococcal antigen leading to false negative tests in undiluted samples.
