Abstract
A NEW, RAPID AND SENSITIVE TEST METHOD FOR THE DETECTION OF ERYTHROMYCIN IN ANIMAL-DERIVED PRODUCTS SUCH AS MILK AND MEAT WILL BE DEVELOPED BASED ON IMMUNOASSAY METHODOLOGY. DIRECTED SYNTHETIC TECHNIQUES WILL BE USED TO PREPARE THE IMMUNOGENS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP ANTIBODIES, BOTH MONOCLONAL AND CONVENTIONAL, WITH THE BROADEST RECOGNITION FOR ALL DRUGS IN THE MACROLIDE CLASS OF ANTIBIOTICS AS WELL AS THE MOST IMPORTANT ACTIVE METABOLITES. THE LIMIT OF SENSITIVITYWILL BE AT LEAST ONE UG/ML, THE AMOUNT OF DRUG FOUND IN HUMAN SAMPLES.
