  • a Reactivity was determined by comparison with two internal IgG strip controls. Scoring, relative to level I and II control bands, was as follows: −, an absent band; ±, intensity lower than the level I band; +, intensity equal to the level I band; ++, greater than the level I but less than the level II band; +++, intensity equal to the level II band; ++++, greater than the level II band.
