A PubMed search on EG2 shows a lot of articles including the most recent  in
2005 staining eosinophils in sputum of asthmatics with a Mab called EG2.
Koh YI is lead author and contact and has an e-mail address (is in Korea) so
must know the story of EG2 and how they got it.

Good Morning Netters,
  Those of us involved in allergy or asthma studies are very interested in
eosinophils, as are folks in many other lines of inflammatory research.
About five years ago I was able to buy my best eo ab called EG2.  It came
from a Swedish company called Pharmacia-Upjohn.  I have another eo marker
that's OK, but I'd love to get EG2 back again.  I bet I've made a dozen
phone calls and, here's what I've been told.  Pharmacia-Upjohn was sold at
least in part to Monsanto, who then sold it to Amersham Biosciences, who
then sold it in some form to GE Healthcare.  Along the way the company was
fractured into various sub-companies each of whom kept one part or another
of the original company and it's products.  No person along the way has been
able to give me any leads in finding EG2.  If any other detective out there
has snooped it out I would be ever so grateful!!!   Thank You!!!!
