This section contains chapters describing methods for the immunologic diagnosis of acute, chronic, or latent infections and nonsuppurative sequelae caused by bacteria, rickettsiae, mycoplasmas, bartonellae, and borreliae. The majority of the methods described in these chapters measure antibodies. In situations where it is difficult to culture the infectious agent, antibody detection is one of the only effective ways to identify the infecting organism. The described methods cover a wide range of antibody assays, including hemagglutination, indirect fluorescence, complement fixation, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays.
