IgG antibodies against toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 (TSST-1) in human immunoglobulins


IgG antibodies against toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 in human immunoglobulins were determined using the ELISA technique. Of the drugs for intramuscular application, hemogamma and beriglobin contained the highest amount of antibodies. The highest concentration of antibodies in drugs for intravenous application was found inPseudomonas polyglobin and in Venimmun.
