- Product overview
ab108714 Candida albicans IgA Human ELISA Kit is intended for the qualitative determination of IgA class antibodies against Candida albicans in human serum or plasma (citrate).
Candida albicans is an ubiquitious yeast like fungus belonging to the family of ascomycota. It is a facultative pathogen belonging to the normal microbial flora of skin and mucosa. Beside the yeast form which appears mainly with superficial infections, so called pseudomycelia are another morphological form of ascomycota. Pseudomycelia prevail with invasive mycosis. Although not pathogenic in healthy humans the fungus may be opportunistic in those suffering from a variety of disorders, and in those treated intensively with broad-spectrum antibiotics or immunosuppressive measures. Candidiasis is caused about 90% by C. albicans. It is an acute, superficial or subacute, invasive infection. Acute infections with the fungus may produce lesions in the mouth, vagina, skin and nails. Subacute infections may affect bronchi, lungs, heart or meningeal. In immunosuppressant patients with cellular immunodeficiency, e.g., AIDS patients, C. albicans may lead to severe necroses of infected tissues.
