Patent Title: Methods and Kits for Detecting Fungal Infection
Publication date: 2009
Publication number: US20090111129

Abstract: Methods and kits which utilize a conjugate, preferably an adduct, of ergosterol for determining the presence or level of a broad spectrum of ergosterol-containing organisms (e.g., fungi) in various substrates are disclosed. These methods and kits can be used to accurately and efficiently diagnose a subject having a fungal infection, particularly invasive fungal infection, and to accurately and efficiently detect the presence of fungi and other ergosterol-containing organisms in other substrates. Antibodies and other compounds (e.g., molecularly imprinted polymers) that are capable of selectively binding to ergosterol or to an ergosterol-containing conjugate and methods of producing same are also disclosed.
