Antibodies against the HBV core protein were raised in two male rabbits which were confirmed by antibody-antigen precipitation test and Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) test.
Agar gel precipitation test done to confirm the presence of the virus in the embryos yielded faint precipitation lines which, though hardly visible, were present in all the passages.
Methodology: We performed the PEG precipitation test in 188 hyperprolactinemic subjects with prolactin levels greater than 750 mIU/L.
Due to the unexpected high frequency of pituitary abnormalities observed in one of the studies, the author suggested that the diagnostic algorithm of hyperprolactinemic states should include both polyethylene glycol (PEG) precipitation test and MRI imaging (31).
1 ng/mL were submitted to the polyethylene glycol (PEG) precipitation test.
The PEG precipitation test is not perfect, but there is no doubt that modifications of it are applicable to the majority of the most widely used immunoassays for PRL, and introduction of this approach in all laboratories would largely solve the problem of macroprolactinemia.
Virus was confirmed through conventional serological method Agar Gel precipitation test and molecular method Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).
