Production of monoclonal antibodies to estriol and their application in the development of a sensitive nonisotopic immunoassay.

The development of highly specific monoclonal antibodies to estriol and a nonisotopic immunoassay (EIA) for unconjugated estriol based on the use of these monoclonal antibodies have been described. The monoclonal antibodies show little cross reactivity with other steroids and steroid conjugates and can be used directly in immunoassays without any purification. The EIA described here can be performed in 96-well microtiter plates or polystyrene tubes that have been coated with estriol-bovine serum albumin conjugate. In this assay, estriol in the standard or clinical samples (serum or saliva) competes with the immobilized steroid on the plate or the tube for binding with the antibody. The assay shows good agreement with radioimmunoassay (RIA) and is highly sensitive and reliable. Since no prior processing or extraction of the clinical samples is necessary, the method is potentially applicable for routine use in fetal monitoring as well as in a steroid laboratory.[1]
