Both the ELISA following incubation of sera with O. gutturosa extract and serum IgG reactivity to a 41-kD larval component using immunoblotting are sensitive and specific techniques for diagnosing endemic strongyloidiasis.
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor of the parasitic nematode Trichinella spiralis.
In conclusion TsMIF has structural, catalytic and cell-migration-inhibitory properties which indicate that it is partially orthologous to mammalian MIF.
Localization of the ring-infected erythrocyte surface antigen (RESA) of Plasmodium falciparum in merozoites and ring-infected erythrocytes
Immunoelectron microscopy with protein A gold has been used to determine the subcellular location of the ring-infected erythrocyte surface antigen (RESA) of Plasmodium falciparum. RESA was associated…

The production of IgA appears to require a threshold for triggering, and a vigorous IgA response is maintained into early adulthood only in the high transmission village where peak intensity is greatest and the age-convexity of intensity is most marked.
Size variation in chromosomes from independent cultured isolates of Plasmodium falciparum
Fractionation by PFG electrophoresis of chromosomal DNA molecules from P. falciparum is described into at least seven discrete species which vary in size by up to 20% between different isolates, and two of the chromosomes seem to contain the same sequences.

The sequence of the cDNA clone revealed that, like many other antigens of P. falciparum, it contains tandemly repeated amino acid sequences, in this case Gly-Gly-Met-Pro, but the rest of the sequence is 70% homologous at the amino acid level to the heat shock protein hsp70 of Drosophila melanogaster.

Preliminary characterization of the effector mechanisms and cytokines associated with protective immunity against O. volvulus infective larvae revealed elevated levels of eosinophils in peripheral blood and within micropore chambers during challenge infections in vaccinated mice.
Evidence against Wolbachia symbiosis in Loa loa
DNA analysis and immunohistology provided no evidence for Wolbachia symbiosis in L. loa, and previous studies by electron microscopy and PCR have failed to detect intracellular bacterial infection in Loa loa.
