Brief Answer: antibodies are character of blood stream Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Welcome back. Prostate and intestinal fluids have antibodies but to very low levels, these body fluids show antigens during active phase of the disease. Blood instead shows antibodies when there is infection any where in the organs. I hope the advise will be helpful.
