It is also interesting that the cross-reactivity can be concentration dependent.
Cross-reactivity with all metabolites except AM4N was lower on the RxL than on the TDx.
However, it is difficult to determine the influence of cortisone on UFC excretion in quantitative terms because interference by cortisone depends not only on its cross-reactivity with the binding protein but also on the diuresis-induced increase in cortisone excretion, which changes markedly with time of day: water diuresis in the morning (zenith of adrenal activity) presumably has a more pronounced effect on cortisone excretion than water diuresis in the evening (nadir of adrenal activity).
Many MAbs raised against PSA also detect hK2, whereas some are specific for PSA and have no cross-reactivity to hK2 (55).
We hypothesized that cross-reactivity with THC immunoassays was the result of the interaction of EFV metabolite (and not a parent drug) with the antibody complexes used in the assays.
In addition, the immunoassays do not exhibit 100% cross-reactivity for the parent compound oxazepam at the 300 ng/mL cutoff, and urine tests with concentrations of oxazepam greater than 300 ng/mL may be negative.
There are approximately 450 species of lupin, and as with crustacea and molluscs, evidence shows that it has a high cross-reactivity for people who are also allergic to peanuts.
He reported that a literature review found virtually no cross-reactivity between cefdinir (Omnicef) and penicillin, despite concerns about the use of cephalosporins in patients with a history of penicillin allergy.
The scientists studied the family closely to learn more about that conservation and how it underlies the allergic cross-reactivity between birch pollen and plant foods such as apples and celery.
IgG cross-reactivity can occur between B henselae and Bartonella quintana because these tests use whole bacteria or bacterial lysates as an antigen.
2,3) The most recent of these reports was interesting in that cross-reactivity with glyburide, a sulfonamide derivative, was also postulated.
as such, cross-reactivity due to prior vaccination is highly unlikely.
