Pertussis - EAE Induction

Last Updated: Aug 30, 2018 12:41PM PDT
Thank you for you interest in List Labs. 

To follow are a few publications that may aid you with the use of our Pertussis product for EAE induction, please feel free to browse the following:

There are many variations in the methods of induction of EAE, including the strain and gender of
mice, amount of pertussis toxin and the use of adjuvants. Also, we recommend on our Certificate
of Analysis that the optimum dosage be determined for each lot in the particular application.
Below are links to some articles that are free on PubMed; I hope that some of them will be helpful.
