TST negative HCW constituted the majority of those who showed a humoral immune response. We suggest that maybe those antibodies could play some role in immune response against M.tuberculosis, thus HCW maintain healthy on hostile environment.
Even tough the presence of systemic humoral immune response measured as IgG titers against IBDV in the inoculated SPF birds was detected, the response was not uniform and relatively low in levels.
These antigens might reach the endolymphatic sac and stimulate its immune system by eliciting a humoral immune response. To test this theory, we analyzed the perilymph of otosclerosis patients for the presence of measles virus-specific antibodies.
