This antibody specifically recognises the idiotypic determinants expressed by the Rituximab humanised monoclonal antibody. It does not recognise other CD20 antibodies.
This antibody has been used in ELISA assays to monitor the levels of Rituximab in patient serum following therapy.
It has been used to detect Rituximab bound to the surface of the Raji B cell line, however detection of Rituximab bound 'in vivo' to B-CLL cells has not been demonstrated. It is possible that complement deposition on Rituximab opsonised cells inhibits binding of the anti-Rituximab antibody to cell bound Rituximab (3).
