Human anti-KLH antibody tests

History of assay achievements
A major research focus within the Radboud University Medical Centre is on immune-regulation and immunotherapy.
For monitoring of KLH-containing cancer vaccines we recently developed the first quantitative-assay to detect human anti-KLH antibodies in serum/plasma (Aarntzen et al. CII 2012).
In recently published articles we describe our ELISA method and diverse applications of anti-KLH analysis in clinical trials:
