Distinguish Zika Virus from Other Flaviviruses Via Simple Serodiagnostic Assays
The recent emergence of Zika virus (ZIKV) and associated microcephaly has created an urgent need for a sensitive, specific, and rapid serodiagnostic test. ZIKV belongs to the genus Flavivirus, which includes several mosquito-borne human pathogens such as dengue virus (DENV) and West Nile virus (WNV). Due to the considerable immune response it eli...

Mesothelioma Biomarker
Malignant mesothelioma, which is associated with asbestos or erionite exposure, is an aggressive and lethal cancer of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many internal organs and is most commonly found in the lungs. The inventors have discovered that misregulation of a protein called High Mobility Group Box 1 (HMGB1) is linked to mes...

Homogeneous Antibody-based FRET Immunoassays
Technology This invention details use of the protein L binding domain as a convenient handle for converting off-the-shelf antibodies or fragments into a rapid, sensitive, single-step, homogeneous, and non-competitive immunoassay. Protein L binds to all antibody classes including Fab fragments and single chain variable fragments. This allows f...
