Abstract Circulating immune complexes (ICs) were isolated from cerebrospinal fluids (CSFs) of patients with tuberculous meningitis (TBM), non-tuberculous neurological diseases by a polyethylene glycol (PEG) precipitation method. Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigen 5 was detected in CICs of 30% patients with TBM, by sandwich ELISA. CIC level decreases during antituberculosis chemotherapy and therefore its detection can provide a method to monitor the therapeutic schedule in patients with TBM.
