Basiliximab interferes with the detection of soluble IL-2 receptor by the Immulite Immunoassay system
Journal of Immunological Methods , Volume 275 - Issue 1-2 p. 133- 136
The use of the Immulite Automated Immunoassay system is becoming an increasingly popular method for accurate and fast measurement of sIL-2R in serum. Here, we report that detection of sIL-2R using the Immulite Immunoassay system in serum samples of patients who are treated with basiliximab, a monoclonal antibody against the alpha-chain of the IL-2 receptor, may lead to false measurements.
