According to recent research published in the journal Clinical and Diagnostic Laboratory Immunology, "An anti-anthrax vaccine adsorbed (anti-AVA) standard human reference serum pool, AVR414, has been prepared, and the total and protective antigen (PA)-specific immunoglobulin G (IgG) were quantified. AVR414 was prepared by plasmapheresis of healthy adults who had received a minimum of four subcutaneous injections of AVA. Mass values (mg/mL) for total IgG and IgG subclasses 1 to 4 were determined by radial immunodiffusion."
