Neutralizing Antibody Assay
Posted on Dec 27, 2018
A drug may elicit an immune response in recipients. The ELISA is the typical method for detecting antibodies that bind to a drug. The Neutralizing Antibody Assay (NAb) measures whether the antibody blocks the activity of the drug. The assay usually is a bioassay in which the drug induces a biological response in a cell and patient serum antibody is tested for inhibition that response.
