How antibody kill an antigen?

Dr. John Chiu Dr. Chiu
4 doctors agreed:
How antibody kill an antigen?

They don't usually: Antibody does not usually kill an antigen but binds it. The attachment may then, under certain circumstances , triggers the release of certain mediators or the influx of body cells (cytotoxic lymphocytes, macrophage etc) to do the job of killing. This is a very simplistic answer to a complex question however. ...Read more

Yes but...: Dna sequencing can identify most of the bacteria and also the % of those present. What you are going to use this for is perhaps the most important question and where are they located? I would check with your physician, find out what testing facility they are using and how extensive is the test. Some of the test only look for a few of the bacteria and don't measure them all. ...Read more
