Generation of A Monoclonal Antibody Secreting B Cell Line For The Study Of Antibody Specificity In Pigeon Fanciers’ Lung

Karen Walker

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

Pigeon fanciers’ lung (PFL) is one of the most common forms of extrinsic allergic alveolitis (EAA). It is thought that PFL is caused by the deposition of immune complexes onto the alveolar epithelial surface causing damage to the lung. It is also unclear as to why some fanciers are asymptomatic despite the high levels of anti-avian antibodies in their serum.
