Nanoimmunosensor based on atomic force spectroscopy to detect anti-myelin basic protein related to early-stage multiple sclerosis

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/a ... 9119301019

Highlights

• Atomic force spectroscopy nanoimmunosensor detected anti-MBP in multiple sclerosis.
• Anti-MBP was present in early-stage and absent in advanced-stage MS patients.
• Nanoimmunosensor test had 96.68% of sensitivity and 68.48% of specificity.
• The optimal point of accuracy resulted in a cut-off value of 201.4 pN.
• Adhesion force values from simulations and experiments were similar.
